The room, the food and the service was awesome! We stayed the week and everything about our stay was perfect. The staff here, from start to finish, was exceptional. You could stay on the property and eat delicious food, or you could walk just up the block and eat some of the best food you've ever eaten. The local breweries...

This is a beautiful and delightfully pleasant hotel. I loved the spacious entrance and foyer and the rocking chairs on the very large front porch are instantly enticing. Hard to walk by without sitting down with one's tablet, newspaper, or a book. I wish I had stayed more than one night. Location is great -- quick access to the waterfront,...

In town for a wedding and what a gorgeous wedding. From the valet to the bartenders to the servers the service was wonderful. The hotel is beyond gorgeous! And the holiday decorations were amazing. The wedding was one of the most gorgeous I've ever been to. It took our breath away! Loved the tomato soup shooters and lobster grilled cheese...

I stayed at the Vinoy Renaissance for a business trip in November and immediately booked a stay for my family during the holidays. The hotel is an beautifully restored classic. The rooms are comfortably spacious with an incredibly comfortable bed and bedding. The view over the harbor is beautiful. The location is right at the start of restaurant row where...

Historic Boutique Style Marriott. Close to stores and wonderful restaurants. Comfortable clean room. Amazing staff. Well worth the money. Has an amazing display of Chihuly glass and there is a Chihuly museum steps away in the beautiful bayfront park.

What a disappointment. It was a little get away for my wife and me. Had initially planned to stay two days but after only a few hours decided to only stay one. Here is the reason for cancelling. Everywhere we turned they wanted more money. Parking $14.98. Wi-Fi $12.95 in the room plus tax. The dining experience was deplorable. Had...

It's always good to plan a get away, and I was pleased to know that you chose The Vinoy to stay. I appreciate you taking the time to share your experience, but as you can imagine, I was disappointed that you did not have better feedback on your short time here. So many people stay with us and dine with...

This was our third visit to the Vinoy; we spent Thanksgiving week at the hotel. The location is excellent, downtown on the bay near good restaurants, museums and shops within easy walking distance. The hotel is on the edge of an historic neighborhood. There is a dog park nearby. You can walk along the bay through a park to the...

I had a reservation for a Saturday night in Nov 2014. After checking in, we noticed a lot of wedding people running around in the hotel. Three weddings in total that night, one on the patio right in front of our window! Upon complaining to management, we quickly concluded that having a good night's rest was going to be impossible...

It's wonderful that you wanted to take a mini getaway, and we so appreciate you choosing The Vinoy for your time away. As you can imagine, however, we were sorry to hear that you chose not to stay due to the number of weddings. Please accept my sincere apology. I was pleased that our staff refunded your charge.

I could get lost in this place! I love that the hotel has so much to offer, yet downtown St. Pete and all it's charm is just steps away, and a morning run on the waterfront is right there as well! The yoga classes are challenging, yet the locals and the instructors are very welcoming. Their spa has an amazing...
