Great hotel, great service, great location. It's very difficult to find a better hotel in St. Petersburg. We like to stay in the original part of the hotel, not the tower. Dinner at Marchand's is terrific, also a great place for a cocktail at the end of the day.

This is a historic hotel, but the rooms could use a facelift. Stayed there for the triathlon in April and chose the hotel due to the proximity of the race. Good: Close to bay and other points of interest. clean rooms Good restaurants Bad: dated (especially some of the hallways) - I understand it is a historical hotel, but it...

It's my mine and wife's anniversary, so I booked a room at the Vinoy. At arrival, the level of customer service and professionalism was superior. While I was checking in, I had the pleasure of meeting Kent, the Senior Front Desk Agent. I mentioned it was our anniversary, and that I had a long trip coming up with work, but...

Not sure that "RESORT" conveys a good description of this property ... no land, a porch overlooking the driveup for cars, a pool area which is small for the number of guests and for 3 consecuvtive days HAD NOT TOWELS available !! Really? Their restaurant Marchands is a beautifully restored historic space which is completely ruined by a bar in...

This resort is absolutely beautiful with tons of charm and history. The restoration of this mid 1920's resort hotel to its original charm was absolutely done right with attention to every detail. Everything at this resort is first class from the attentive staff to the exceptional food to the ambiance to the comfortable rooms to the surrounding grounds. It was...

We had a fabulous brunch at the Vinoy. The atmosphere was beautiful. The room was large and splendid. The service was well trained and wonderful. The food however was the best part. The Carving station was one of many serving areas. There was a salad station smoked fish and bagels croissants etc. Pate, salami, and cheeses followed across from a...

Loved the bed (luxury silky touch) and the beautiful ocean view. The lobby is decorated with glass chandeliers that resemble Chihuly and has the very retro(20s?) Floridian theme in Aqua blue and gold color story -gorgeous! The service was good and we had a very nice stay over all.

Our family stayed in 2 adjoining rooms over the Christmas Vacation. The purpose of our trip was a getaway to St Petersburg, Florida. The Vinoy was a perfect selection for us. First, the Vinoy exudes charm and history. It was built in the mid 1920’s as a resort hotel. It stood dormant for a long while until barely escaping the...

We were engaged at this hotel 3 years ago and visited again today! It's just lovely inside and out! I would have loved if they could have renovated the inside and still keep it true to the 1900's interiors it once would have had, but it is modern and still very nice. The grounds surrounding the hotel are will kept...

I was here for a wedding. The room was great and the service staff attentive and helpful. The location is fantastic. It is within walking distance of great shopping and restaurants. I love the deep front porch setting at the front of the hotel.
