This was my first visit to St. Petersburg, and the Vinoy provided outstanding accessibility to the waterfront & a vibrant downtown area! We were there to celebrate a special occasion & the staff was very accommodating & generous. When our room's air conditioner malfunctioned, staff members promptly moved us to another room & compensated us for our inconvenience. Views from...

We stayed at the Vinoy for three days during spring break. We had a wonderful experience. They upgraded us to a tower room with a balcony. While the tower is detached from the main hotel, we liked the location. We were close to the parking garage, the tennis courts, spa, workout room, and pool. The room was very large and...

From the moment we arrived we were floored by the poor customer service. The young guys out front totally ignored us as we scrambled with all our luggage- arrived by cab. I asked about getting a pedicure and the concierge recommended a place a short 4 blocks away- told her I would be walking. It was almost a 2 MILE...

Let me begin by thanking you for choosing to stay at The Vinoy recently. If you read many of the other reviews, you may notice that our team is complimented quite often for their customer service and their caring attitude. The experience that you described is certainly not typical for our guests, and on behalf of our entire team, please...

An older-styled, full of character place, with pleasant staff in a great location. Some things are showing their age but overall a really decent base. Food and bar are ok-to-good for Florida and service was always terrific.

We are experienced travelers and wanted a classy but relaxed environment to take a deep breath. Well guess what ? We found it. This property takes you back into the renaissance peroid and then the interior decor brings you unto 2015. Bright colors, with the mix of modern and classic textures. The rooms and baths were a little less than...

I have stayed at this hotel many times and previously rated it quite well. I am not sure if management changed but the hotel definitely has gone down hill - mostly in the service area. The hotel is well is situated in St Petersburg and definitely has a lot of charm. They gym is excellent and there are great places...

Greetings from the Vinoy, and thank you for being a loyal customer. As you can imagine, we were happy that you continue to stay with us and love the rating of "A" for so many areas including our location (close to museums, things to do, great scenery to walk and run); our state-of the-art Health Club (with complimentary fitness classes...

This is a Marriott property. The hotel is a bit older and some of the cosmetics are a bit out dated BUT everything worked perfectly fine! Be sure you get a room in the guest towers....gorgeous views of the bay. When I checked in, late afternoon, there was a bit of confusion whether or not my room was ready. Not...

the Vanoy renaissance managed by Marriott is outstanding! A historical hotel from 1925 that has been updated while retaining its charm. Very comfortable , beautiful, water views, patios for dinning and drinks and people watching ( often the rich and famous or Major League Baseball players). Pricey, but watch for seasonal deals!

I visited the Vinoy for the first time last week for a large conference. I must say I was pleasantly surprised! Friendly, helpful staff, good bars, quality catering. I know the conference will be held in the same place next year, so I'm already looking forward to it!

I attended a meeting of approximately 300 people in this hotel. The hotel is beautiful and has been updated since I was there a few years ago. The color scheme in the main hallway is Aqua, white and silver, with many small alcoves to sit and visit with friends. The staff was fantastic, food delicious and as always the grounds...
