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...

It is in the best location in St. Pete for walking to museums, restaurants and shops. But, if you just want to relax everything you could possibly want is right there. I love sitting on the Grand Old front porch and sipping drinks or just walking along the ocean and gazing at the sailboats and local activities. Their swimming pool...

Wonderful old hotel. What you'd expect from a stately old gem. Yet very comfortable for a family and touring St. Petersburg. Location is excellent for walking to all attractions in old St. Petersburg.

The Renaissance Vinoy is our favorite resort for a beautiful and romantic getaway. The resort is amazingly beautiful with a perfect location of downtown St.Pete. We walked to some of the most amazing restaurants and museums in all of Florida. I highly recommend staying at the Vinoy any time of year. The staff is also very friendly and courteous. We...

I love the beach, I also love elegant old world charm and it's hard to combine the wo. In February of this year myself and my husband treated ourselves to a visit to the Vinoy, as recommended on TripAdvisor, we were not disappointed. This hotel is situated opposite the Marina and beside all the modern bars and restaurants of St....

I have stayed here before for a conference, but this time it was for a wedding. I like the attention I get as I come in, and check in was very easy. This place has a great sense of historical nostalgia to it, and I almost feel like I am stepping back into the 1920s era as I walk in....

Always stay at this hotel when in St Pete and its a great hotel but... This time around we planned to have breakfast at the hotel and were turned back, not due to occupancy but because they didn't have enough servers. The rest was practically empty and it was still a 30 min wait because they didn't have enough staff...
