This was our second stay and this lovely resort. Once 15 years ago for our twentieth anniversary and this time to participate in New Years Eve festivities of St Petersburg. I would say it is definitely luxury. Also within walking distance of several great restaurants and shops. Also great restaurants at the resort. The hotel sits on the edge of...

We just concluded a 4 night stay at the Vinoy. This is a wonderful old hotel that, while a few items may need updating, more than makes up for that with service and charm. The room was spacious and well appointed. We had dinner one evening at Marchand's in the hotel and it was excellent. The highlight was the golf...

My family of 4 had a great time at the Vinoy in December 2014 - large room overlooked the water, and the hotel maintains a terrific sense of its history (it was built in the 1920s then fell on hard times after World War 2 and was refurbished again in the last decade or two to kick off the rejuvenation...

The Vinoy is a fabulous resort and the grounds, location and staff are excellent. We stayed for 3 days and tried most of the restaurants and services offered and all met or exceeded expectations. I would highly recommend this hotel and will stay there again.

We attended the Bitcoin Bowl Dec. 26-30 by staying at the beautiful Vinoy Resort. It was perfect weather and very convenient to the stadium for the bowl game. Upon arrival, we were told that despite our initial room request for two queen beds, we were offered a king with a pull-out couch. This was the official hotel of one of...

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...

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.
