At first we were upgraded to a private patio spa room (1st floor), but there was green slime growing around it on the floor, and a huge wall surrounding it due to the construction on the other side. There wasn't even a view of the sky, much less anything else. It was like a musty basement. (The "spa" also looks...

Spent Christmas in St. Petersburg, Florida at a great hotel. Location, Locations, Location! This hotel is located in a PRIME area. Right on the bay, and surrounded by incredible restaurants! Felt very safe in letting my children walk across the street in the park. I did the spa for a massage - and it was excellent. Food in the hotel...

Our stay at the Renaissance Vinoy in St. Petersburg, Florida was really special. The location is fabulous, with the water just feet away, and so many museums and restaurants within walking distance. We were unfamiliar with all that the Tampa/St. Pete area has to offer, and are so grateful we got to spend a few nights here. The hotel is...

we came here for the festival of speed weekend, our rate was 370$ so we were confident we will have a great stay,Wrong!!!! The Vinoy is a dirty, dilapidated misery of a hotel. Our room, #345, had a filthy brown stain in the toilet bowl, only one bedside lamp that worked and a musty smell in the bathroom. The dining...

This is a wonderful old place on the bay. It is very historical and beautifully maintained. Grand lobby and dining room with mostly original décor makes this place charming and inviting. The staff is wonderful and goes out of their way to please. would recommend to anyone seeking an upscale experience

Our time in St. Petes was great because of location, location, location. Being right on the bay at the Vinoy was perfect. The person that checked us in at the hotel (an older lady) was not very user friendly, but the hotel was great in many ways. The navigator (concierge) was great, very informative and willing to help. She also...

We stayed one night at the Vinoy to attend the Seafood and Music Festival. We were so excited about staying at The Vinoy. Pulling up to the hotel, the grandiosity is amazing.
