I have stayed at the Vinoy many, many times and absolutely love it. It's a gorgeous hotel with a wonderful staff that works to make every guest feel at home. They always go out of their way to make each trip special. The location is perfect, within easy walking distance to all of downtown St. Pete, but I could easily...

We enjoyed our stay at the Vinoy. We were greeted by a Chihuly display at the front door and were pleased to discover that the history and artwork continued through two of the main floors. Service was excellent at the front desk and it was a wonderful lobby to hang out in. We really enjoyed the chairs and view on...

First I have never stayed here, but always like to come and sit at the veranda and have wonderful martinis while people watching. it seems that they have made some overall improvements in the lobby area, but this place is like a grand dame, always classy

We booked a "Bay View" room. If we had realized that the bay would be in the distance and the immediate view was going to be a huge construction site, with no balcony, windows that would not stay open and decor that was at least 40 years old, we would have booked a much cheaper room. The bathroom, however, was...

No perks but it was high season so what can you do. Cool view but kinda a walk from the seen. Room was nothing special but comfortable I opened the doors to the balcony and it opened up the space and made us feel like we were one with the outside that was nice.

This is the third time I have stayed here and its always great. The staff makes you feel at home as soon as you arrive. The hotel is getting a face lift and a new pool which will be nice. I hate the pool was closed during my stay. The rooms are always clean and the bed was super comfortable....

The Vinoy is a beautiful hotel with a terrific location. The lobby is gorgeous. The rooms and bathrooms are large but a bit tired. The pool was under construction during the two days we were there, and although that I was notified of that when I booked the room, I was under the mistaken impression that there would be places...

So very happy to hear that renovations are forthcoming. In my opinion, there is no way this can still be considered the grand four star hotel that it used to be. The common areas are lovely, but the guest rooms are desperately crying for help. Outdated and old, musty, and some things are just falling apart. We arrived to find...

Checked in Thursday night and enjoyed a blissful evening overlooking the harbor. Thought we were in heaven. I was congratulating myself having talked my husband into this major splurge for Grand Prix Weekend. He gets the race and I get to chill on the balcony with this million dollar view. Except, well that I don't... Marriott just went from my...

Staff were friendly and the hotel is in a good location on the edge of downtown. Rooms a good size and bathrooms are good. However the price is a bit expensive for what it is paryicilarly as the pool area is currently being refurbished. They do a nice happy hour on weekdays between 4 and 6 where the first drink...
