We have stayed at the Vinoy several times. It is one of my favorite hotels. The historic feel of the hotel is very inviting and yet the rooms are updated and comfortable. The beds are great. We had room 725. The small balcony is so pleasant and makes the room very cheery. The bathroom is large and nice. The water...

I am giving the Vinoy 4 stars and it hurts me to do this since this is one of my favorite place to go in St. Petersburg. I love the breakfast in the main dining room and return again and again with guests. I have been 2 times in the past 2 weeks. Both times they seemed understaffed. Long waits...

Greetings from The Vinoy, and thank you for your patronage and loyalty to our resort and restaurants. I am so glad that you continue to return time-after-time and that you truly care about the experience our guests have when they stay or dine with us. Because you are a repeat customer, you certainly have something to weigh your opinion on....

We stayed at the Vinoy for an event at the end of March 2015. A big thank you to the hotel staff for getting us in touch with an in-room babysitter. She was wonderful and took very good care of our 10 year old autistic son while we attended our event. This was the first time we have visited downtown...

The location at Vinoy Park is fantastic. The hotel is across from the Marina and convenient for activities in St. Petersburg. The spa services were great as were all the meals. There are several outdoor areas that are comfortable and inviting to take the time to enjoy

While we were only able to stay at the Vinoy for one night, we had an absolutely incredible time. We were driving up from Sarasota the morning of our stay, which is about 45 minutes south of St. Pete. We were going to the Opening Day Orioles vs. Rays game, so we wanted to make sure that we were there...

Overall the hotel is nice but way over priced. My wife and I paid around $300.00 for a small guest room over looking the back maintenance area and the roof below. Not worth the charges. Stay on St. Pete Beach or Treasure Island when in the St. Pete area. Food at both hotel locations was very good but again, over...

Hope you enjoyed your Reunion for Boca Ciega High School. Thanks for staying with us at The Vinoy Renaissance Resort and Golf Club while in town and for taking the time to write a review. You are absolutely correct - rates are at their highest while in peak season. We are in our busiest season right now in Florida and...

This was my first visit to St. Petersburg, and the Vinoy provided outstanding accessibility to the waterfront & a vibrant downtown area! We were there to celebrate a special occasion & the staff was very accommodating & generous. When our room's air conditioner malfunctioned, staff members promptly moved us to another room & compensated us for our inconvenience. Views from...

We stayed at the Vinoy for three days during spring break. We had a wonderful experience. They upgraded us to a tower room with a balcony. While the tower is detached from the main hotel, we liked the location. We were close to the parking garage, the tennis courts, spa, workout room, and pool. The room was very large and...

From the moment we arrived we were floored by the poor customer service. The young guys out front totally ignored us as we scrambled with all our luggage- arrived by cab. I asked about getting a pedicure and the concierge recommended a place a short 4 blocks away- told her I would be walking. It was almost a 2 MILE...

Let me begin by thanking you for choosing to stay at The Vinoy recently. If you read many of the other reviews, you may notice that our team is complimented quite often for their customer service and their caring attitude. The experience that you described is certainly not typical for our guests, and on behalf of our entire team, please...

An older-styled, full of character place, with pleasant staff in a great location. Some things are showing their age but overall a really decent base. Food and bar are ok-to-good for Florida and service was always terrific.
