I stayed here for 3 nights recently while at a work convention. The hotel is really nice to look at and is in a great location, right next to the water. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and I got a good night's sleep each night. The entire Internet was down for a day and a half which was very...

Greetings from The Vinoy, and thank you for taking the time to complete a review. Your positive feedback was appreciated, and I am glad that you enjoyed the hotel, the location, the water, the spacious and comfortable rooms and especially liked the fact that you got a good night's sleep every night. That in itself is worth its weight in...

Yes, a spur of the moment drive from Orlando, dropped us into a "Dreamscape" !!! We parked and asked one another ... are WE gonna stay the night? Well, we walked into the reception area of this elaborate setting of s grand hotel. Beautiful! It seemed to be the host of a huge galla event so everything was hustle and...

What a great customer service story you have shared. Thank you for your time in letting us know. We will be sure to thank the Vinoy ambassador (when we can pinpoint who it was) for her offer of assistance at another property when we were sold out. Going above and beyond is what we strive for, and judging by your...

The location is wonderful and the Historic hotel is beautiful. Per the other reviewers, we went a day without internet. They have no backup plan in place. The service in the breakfast restaurant varied from good to very so so. The rooms though were tired and our first floor hot tub room looked like a JR suite that had the...

Thank you for your time in reviewing your recent stay. While I was happy to know that you felt the location was wonderful and the hotel was beautiful, I did want to sincerely apologize for the internet outage. While it was not in our span of our control, we certainly understand the frustrations and inconvenience it caused for our guests...

Amazing hotel, awsone bar, staff is extremely friendly. Jason made me some outrageous Manhattans, Pizza was surprisingly good. We sat at the main bar for @2 1/2 hours, then moved to the outside bar for another round(s). Can't wait to move to St Petersburg in the fall. Will be our go to Friday night.

This is an elegant, welcoming hotel with a gorgeous lobby and many attractive courtyards and indoor/outdoor sitting areas. The service was outstanding even before I arrived when I called to upgrade my room. During my one-week stay, staff were welcoming and helpful. The hotel is beautifully located opposite St. Petersburg harbor and around the corner from streets full of restaurants...

We stayed three nights for St. Anthony's triathlon. We had a bay-view tower balcony room (room # 568). I have attached pictures from our balcony of the construction of the new marina restaurant and of the pool area. The room was still nice. I believe they are going to renovate the tower rooms some time this year. Everything worked properly...

Stayed here 3 nights for business and it was everything the business traveler could desire. Spacious rooms, nice views, great gym, on site bars and restaurants, walkable to other food choices, great service. Perfect for business, I wouldn't stay here on a vacation though as the atmosphere feels mundane and stuffy.

My wife and I stayed five nights at this beautiful resort. The location is awesome as we were able to walk to several museums and restaurants. The Vinoy has a great history. They even provide a tour ($10) that is very informative. On site restaurant is wonderful as a facility and quality of food. My wife and I spent a...

The Vinoy Renaissance Hotel has the potential to be a great hotel, unfortunately, there were some serious faults that this hotel needs to address. First off, I booked two rooms four months ago, and I called in three times to confirm that the two rooms I booked would be connecting rooms. Each time I called I was assured the rooms...
