We've stayed at this Renaissance property 3 or 4 times over the past 5 years. It's a classic, historical hotel that has been renovated well. In Jan., we used some Marriott Rewards points for a free night (Platinum Elite member). Unlike our rooms in the past, the room we had was quite small, though it did have a limited view...

I love the classic old hotels, especially the ones that have been restored and brought up to modern standards without sacrificing their classic charm. My room faced the marina and had a very sunny exposure which was very welcome coming from the dark and dreary midwest in January. The room was large, easily accommodating two queen sized beds, and the...

We had the pleasure of meeting friends for wine and snacks at this classic Florida hotel. The wine list was delightful as was the service and terrace ambiance. Hence we plan to make this our go to spot for cocktails and light snacks in future......

A superb blend of fabulous customer service, famous historical hotel, and fantastic dining experience. In my opinion, has the best fish tacos I have had anywhere. It is on the very short list of vacation spots to which I would return.

I loved our stay at the Vinoy. The hotel is a classic. It has a very nice pool and great poolside service. Our room was spacious and lovely. The location is right in St. Pete, so you can walk everywhere. If you want to stay in town, no need for a car. You can get taxis or Uber if you...

The Vinoy is a marvelous old hotel overlooking Tampa Bay just steps from the trendy main drag in St. Petersburg. The lobby has that old world feel about it. I found the staff friendly and attentive. The room was clean. They had comfortable bathrobes, a fully stocked minibar, safe ironing board, hair dryer and a 50" flatscreen TV. The bathroom...

Very service oriented, which is to be expected with Marriott properties. Housekeeping staff (called "room stylists" here) left fresh towels and coffee outside door when "Privacy" tag on door. Excellent conference venue. Restaurants are excellent. My only concern was the additional charge for internet service, which seemed cheap for a nicer hotel, especially when being charged a resort fee every...

Everything you would like for an elegant, high-quality stay is here. It is a place for romance and special occasions. You feel like you are in an art gallery walking in and around the property. The decor is modern and memorable. We particularly liked the small "studies" in the lobby where you should not miss the Chihuly exhibits. We found...

Just returned from a four day visit to this lovely resort hotel. The staff are simply wonderful, the atmosphere beautiful and the restaurants spectacular. A special shout out to Richard our "navigator" from the hotel restaurant Marchand's. He was extremely personable and gave us fantastic recommendations for our daily excursions.
