We are considering visiting The Vinoy in the month of July. Can someone please update me on the renovation progress. I am concerned that the pool and surrounding areas may still be under construction. I also do not want to be in a room why experience the noise of hammers and drilling. Any updates are appreciate it. Thank you in advance.
We did not use the pool....so I can't comment. The hot tub was under repair for the week and not available to use.
The first night the heaters outside did not work ....but they got all of them to work on day two. I did not see any construction happening in the areas when we were there.
I would call and inquire and ask to be placed in a room that is not near the renovation area. I am not sure when the renovations are supposed to be completed but I heard by 2019.
In the section I was staying, I was far from the renovation. The only construction going on near my room was the pool house which was due to be finished by February. My room was quiet. I had had a direct view of the pool and it was intact and very inviting. I would definitely recommend it.
Suggest you call the hotel. You can request a room away from the area under remodeling. We were there last August and heard nothing as our room was away from the pool. The place is wonderful.
I would believe they would have all the renovations completed by then..BUT I will tell you that the noise from the pier ( installation of the pilings ) being built kept us from sitting out on our Balconies..We had a King Room that faced the water..
I was at the Vinoy in December and our room faced the pool area where the remodeling was taking place ..and did not experience any noise..the pool was open and you can order drinks and take in the subshine..at nite they have out door seating area and you can enjoy music and food /drinks..breakfast was included in my package I would definitely recommend trying to get that included with your room it was awesome..Enjoy St Pete down town r esturants and shops so much fun!
I think the Vinoy plans to have all renovations done by July but they can’t offer any guarantee. We all know how construction/renovation projects go.
The pool work is being done at the golf club, which is not adjacent to the hotel buildings. The hotel renovations are for the tennis courts, parking facilities, the fitness center, and full-service spa - these are all not adjacent to any hotel rooms.
If you want more info, I would suggest contacting the hotel directly.
I was there end of December and it was terribly noisy... from dawn until dark. I would definitely call and make them commit to you that the renovation is over. If not, I recommend you find a different hotel. The web site understates the intrusiveness of the renovation. It is not only that certain areas are not usable, but also that you are walking through hallways while the painters are painting them all with the constant racket of saws and jack hammers. Run away!!!!!!!! It was still top dollar and like living through at home renovation. Disappointing.
