We had a fabulous stay at this hotel. The location and the views from our room were incredible. The staff was very attentive, friendly and helpful. The hotel is " Old style Florida ", you feel like you are back in the grand times of the 40 ties, yet the Hotel rooms and facilities are perfectly updated. There are many...

I just finished a 20+ day stay at the Vinoy. I was there for business and I truly felt at home at the Vinoy. My room in the tower was very spacious (it was a standard room), the bed was so very comfortable, and the staff was wonderful. I highly recommend this hotel! Thank you to everyone at the Vinoy!...

We went to the Vinoy as part of the Baltimore Raven's suite owners trip. The Vinoy was amazing and the staff did an outstanding job responding to such a large group of Raven's fans. Loved being able to pick up our rental car at the hotel. A must stay if you're in the area.

Ok, so in parts it does look like a very old hotel but I must say, they've done a great job of keeping this hotel looking great. Check in is a bit of a pain especially when there are large groups. They do not have the fancy lobby of most modern hotels and check in lines can get pretty long....

It was special that my wife and I stayed here for two nights after our wedding because we are both St. Pete natives. The staff was incredible and genuine Thank You Corey, Kent and everyone else. We ordered two meals from room service both were delicious. We had a great time. Can't wait to come back. Spring for the room...

If you find yourself looking for someplace to go in central Florida, I heartily recommend St. Pete. And, the premier place to stay downtown is the Vinoy. We have stayed there about 4 times and each time is a treat. The first time we met the Governor as he strolled through the lobby, and this past time we met the...

The Vinoy is a classic. Almost 90 years old, but she doesn't show her age. The hotel and rooms are completely up to date. This a beautiful place with a great view of the harbor and bay. Ask for a room on the higher floors if you're in the main hotel. Some of the lower floors have limited views at...

Thank you for your rave review on the Vinoy's accommodations, health club, the pool, the views, etc. On behalf of our staff, we certainly appreciate your nice comments. As you can imagine, we were disappointed to read that you did not receive the assistance that you had hoped for or that we would normally deliver. Guest satisfaction has always been...

For three years, we have visited the Vinoy when I have had meetings here. It's a classy hotel with fabulous decor and ambience. Marchand's has excellent food and a real deal with their 1925 Classic before 6:00 p.m. The staff is on top of so many details it makes for a very pleasant stay. In the older part of the...

One night in the tower and one dinner at Fred's. Loved this historical hotel. Five minutes off the interstate and sixty second walk to the action. Entire staff was great. Our room was spacious and spotless. Front veranda was beautiful and large. We were their during an hours long massive lightning/rain storm and there was plenty of room to sit....

I stayed at the Vinoy for a conference and had an incredible stay! I don't know how much it cost (since it was a corporate event) but it was epic. I'd say the best part was the food. I noticed that the food for all of the big buffet dining events was really good. I talked with one of the...
