My husband and I stayed here for a conference I had for work. We were able to upgrade to a very spacious room, with two balconies and it was wonderful! Our upgrade was an additional $25, but it was very much worth that price!! We had a little living room area and the bathroom was down a little hallway, and...

We couldn't have asked for a better review. Thank you. Your glowing remarks definitely paint the picture that we want future guests to know about - the comfortable beds; the quiet rooms; the great pool; the wonderful staff service; the old-world charm of the hotel, to name a few. So glad that you both were able to enjoy your stay...

My husband and I stayed in this hotel for a week. The first 3 days were for fun and the last four were for a conference I had for work. Our room was on the first floor and was quite large but failed to include space for your clothing. I asked the front desk whether they had a chest of...

It's great that you were able to combine some fun time along with your conference that you attended at The Vinoy. It sounds like overall you enjoyed your stay and we appreciate you pointing out the highlights including a clean pool, nearby museums to visit, the front porch to sit and relax, to name a few.

We had a fabulous stay at this hotel. The location and the views from our room were incredible. The staff was very attentive, friendly and helpful. The hotel is " Old style Florida ", you feel like you are back in the grand times of the 40 ties, yet the Hotel rooms and facilities are perfectly updated. There are many...

I just finished a 20+ day stay at the Vinoy. I was there for business and I truly felt at home at the Vinoy. My room in the tower was very spacious (it was a standard room), the bed was so very comfortable, and the staff was wonderful. I highly recommend this hotel! Thank you to everyone at the Vinoy!...

We went to the Vinoy as part of the Baltimore Raven's suite owners trip. The Vinoy was amazing and the staff did an outstanding job responding to such a large group of Raven's fans. Loved being able to pick up our rental car at the hotel. A must stay if you're in the area.

Ok, so in parts it does look like a very old hotel but I must say, they've done a great job of keeping this hotel looking great. Check in is a bit of a pain especially when there are large groups. They do not have the fancy lobby of most modern hotels and check in lines can get pretty long....

It was special that my wife and I stayed here for two nights after our wedding because we are both St. Pete natives. The staff was incredible and genuine Thank You Corey, Kent and everyone else.

If you find yourself looking for someplace to go in central Florida, I heartily recommend St. Pete. And, the premier place to stay downtown is the Vinoy. We have stayed there about 4 times and each time is a treat. The first time we met the Governor as he strolled through the lobby, and this past time we met the...

The Vinoy is a classic. Almost 90 years old, but she doesn't show her age. The hotel and rooms are completely up to date. This a beautiful place with a great view of the harbor and bay. Ask for a room on the higher floors if you're in the main hotel. Some of the lower floors have limited views at...

For three years, we have visited the Vinoy when I have had meetings here. It's a classy hotel with fabulous decor and ambience. Marchand's has excellent food and a real deal with their 1925 Classic before 6:00 p.m. The staff is on top of so many details it makes for a very pleasant stay. In the older part of the...
