Recently stayed at this Hotel during a getaway trip with my wife. Long-time platinum Marriott traveler and this hotel didn't disappoint. We were very happy with the property and Ken at the front desk is the best. He went out of his way to make this a spectacular visit for us!

A girlfriend and I stayed at the Vinoy for three nights. The room had two queen beds was comfortable and very clean. I loved the Aveda cleanser products that this hotel provides.

A breath of fresh air and historical charm on the water describes this property which has so much to offer. The hotel is wonderful in every possible aspect and the restaurants and boutique shops within walking distance make it even more desirable. A great place for a weekend rendezvous for locals or a nice little getaway. We found so many...

A trip to The Vinoy Renaissance Resort and Golf Club and St. Petersburg is the perfect combination for a week-long vacation or a weekend getaway. You can be as busy or as relaxed as you would like. Take in a museum, an art gallery, a scenic walk around the water or stay at the resort and enjoy a cocktail on...

To run along the water, pass by spectacular homes of an era gone by and to be treated with such hospitality...the Renaissance Vinoy has it all. After a long trip on Sunday, I valeted (self park available) and saw a number of people on the porch, sipping cocktails and beer...great sight. Upon check-in, they had Bit-O-Honey candies. Wow...haven't seen those...

The Vinoy manages to retain all the historic charm of a hotel built in 1925, with the addition of modern comforts. The rooms are (mostly) right up there with a new luxury property (the shower was oddly 70's though). The public areas, restaurants and bars are beautiful and feel special. The pool, with waterfall, is great and the views from...

A historic hotel, now refurbished and extended, providing spacious rooms and a variety of bar/coffee/restaurant options with a spa and gym. Check in and out was easy and the staff very helpful and friendly. Stunning location on the ocean front, well located for the museums, galleries, shopping and restaurants in St Petersburg. Covered car park adjacent keeps the sun off...

For years this crown jewel in the in the heart of St Pete sat neglected and abandoned. It underwent a thorough and beautiful restoration to bring it back to its original splendor. It's in walking distance of one of the most charming waterfront areas in America! The views of the harbor are memorable. Visitors are welcome to walk through just...

The Vinoy is great on many levels - the staff (most notably Chelsea Pasco, the Rooms Operations Supervisor), physical quality and location. But, I'm a longtime hotelier, and I'm picky. The evening my colleagues and I arrived, the hotel was oversold (hotels do that, not the Vinoy's fault). It's not an easy situation when that happens, and Chelsea handled it...

I had a splendid time attending my cousin's wedding at the Vinoy Resort. The historic charm of this renovated hotel echoed from ceremony location to the wonderfully restored ball room. The hotel staff was friendly and accommodating. To anyone looking for a romantic getaway or a hot venue, I would definitely recommend the Vinoy. I would not recommend the Vinoy...
