Vinoy in August

Civilized. Historic property ideally located at north end of downtown St. Pete. Expansive Bay views from room. Sipped drinks on veranda in rocking chairs gazing through palms to bay. Had dinner in marvelous historic dining room where we were surprised by great sushi. Restaurant info doesn't mention it at all but clearly everyone knew- the sushi chefs stayed busy. High end but not stuffy- just nice. Had a great weekend getaway.

Nice Stay

The hotel was very nice. The staff was extremely polite and helpful. The location was amazing, right by the water and all that the downtown area has to offer. The spa and amenities were fabulous. The gym was largest I've seen for a hotel. There was spinning and yoga classes! The room I stayed in was a bit smaller than I anticipated, but still nice.

Loved it!

Awesome! Very helpful and polite gentleman at check in. Beautiful room! Not bad, but the pool area could use a few things to make it more inviting. Seemed cold and way too many lounge chairs for a fairly small area. Would definitely visit again.

Very nice, probably best in St Petersburg

Unfortunately, I was only able to stay 1 night for business. I wish I could have stayed longer. Excellent room, location, staff, etc.

Experience the best

The hotel is beautiful and the staff very polite, helpful and attentive. Sometimes you didn't even need to ask for help, they are proactive. Feel at home with a luxury touch and stay in (is a full resort place) or out (they will help you all the way out too. The lady at Navigate even recommend us for an outside place! Really hardly to find any better place

Nice but not clean+ internet too expensive

We chose the Vinoy Renaissance for its perfect location and for its history. We wanted a charming hotel and for this point, it was just fine. However, I must say that it has been disappointing to see how dirty and sticky the deckchairs were. We used the swimming pool twice and both times, the white deckchairs were really dark (I used 2 or 3 towels not to be in contact with the black stains, probably drinks or old traces of food) I tried to move to another part of the pool but I could not find any deckchair which was clean. We had a drink while at the pool: first you have to pay for your drink, then you wait, wait, wait...Very unusual. In the bathroom, there were stains on the floor that I removed myself on the 3rd day. Just wanted to check how long they would stay there...Dust on the furniture as well. Very dirty windows. The door for the toilets needed to be fixed as it could hardly open . Another disappointment : internet connection (wifi and cable): both cost about 15 USD/day when in most other hotels that I visited in the US, it was free. I used the computers at the business center: They charge 5 USD each 10 minutes .You are invited to insert your credit card for first. Then, no warning if you stay 11 or more minutes... Positive points; again, the location, the charm and the staff who has been very kind, very polite, very helpful!

Not quite perfect

The rooms were very nice and well kept. They have coffee in the lobby and supply you with a complementary newspaper of your choice every morning. The service is good. If I had one complaint it would be the quality of the food. It was a disappointment. I ordered room service which wasn't the least bit appetizing. It did arrive very quickly.

vinoy soars where delta comes up short

My gf and I were delayed by 8 hours due to delta and we did not receive our luggage until the next day. I say this because when the hotel staff found out about this they did everything in their power to make us comfortable including complementary champagne and snacks for two. Other than that the hotel is right next to some great restraunts and bars, has a terrific pool, and a beautiful lobby. Thank you vinoy people for salvaging my weekend!

Amazing Historic St Pete

There is a reason you pay a couple extra $'s to stay at this style hotel. From the check-in to frozen grapes and popsicles by the pool, they treat their guests well. Location, food, ambiance the Vinoy has it all. Wife said it was the best work out room she uses at any hotel we stay at regularly. Spa, gold, tennis, plenty of activities.
