This was our second stay at the Vinoy, and it was as wonderful as we anticipated it to be. Both times we've chosen to stay in the old section of the hotel and our rooms and baths have been very large and beautifully decorated. Like we did last year, we upgraded to a bay view room on an upper floor,...

I have lived in Tampa Bay and never stayed here. So glad that business meetings held here forced the stay. It is the most beautiful historic hotel in the region. It is historic yet the rooms are large and updated. The bed is super comfy. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars was due to shady characters...

My husband and I got a great rate flying to Florida so we decided to spend a long weekend at the lovely, historical Vinoy hotel. We got a good rate because of a special for staying four nights. The hotel is just lovely from the outside, and when you walk in you expect it to be old fashioned, but it...

A last minute trip south over the New Year took us to visit friends and see the Picasso/Dali exhibit in charming, quaint, quiet St. Petersburg, Fla. On the recommendation of our local friends we stayed at the Vinoy, a sprawling, historic building full of antebellum charm with a great front porch on which to relax and take in the harbor...

Stayed 6 nights at The Vinoy with a gorgeous balcony room overlooking the bay in the tower. The most comfortable hotel bed ever. Impeccably clean room and I think the thing that impressed me the most, besides the sheer beauty and history of it all was how friendly and helpful every single member of the hotel staff were. The service...

This historic hotel is a great property. I had a 3 day meeting and the location is the best for walking to the sites and restaurants. The staff was very helpful and this area of St. Petersburg is easy going. Got a room in the towers with a balcony with a bay view.

A historic hotel in a great location. The Vinoy is in easy walking distance to the pier, parks and attractions on the waterfront. It has comfortable rooms, great staff, and very good amenities. All in all - a very good place to stay.

Classy to the core, huge rooms and the most comfortable beds and bedding I've ever slept in. I'm considering ordering it for my own bed at home and yes they sell it. Also the bath rob is just as comfy, I bought one and brought it home for myself at only $55 dollars. The restaurants just blocks away are all...

My husband and I stayed at the Renaissance Vinoy in October, 2014 and again January, 2015.
