Spent a couple nights at the Vinoy with the family before our Thanksgiving holiday. Beautiful spot with a wonderful history. Stayed on the historic side and highly recommend it. Relaxed atmosphere and good service. Only downside was the extensive construction around the pool. Once that is complete, would highly recommend it as a place for families or couples as a special place to relax and enjoy the beauty of St. Pete.

Stayed: November 2017, travelled with family

The service is impeccable, friendly staff, attentive and sophisticated. The rooms are ok and in good condition, but a little dated. The gym is quite nice - really large for a hotel and also has group exercise and spin classes - in addition to tennis courts and pool. The catering was very good in the ballroom. One issue is that the wifi kept dropping out throughout my stay. Another issue is that there is no coffee maker in the room so you have to get dressed and trek down to the lobby cafe to get a coffee at higher than Starbucks prices. Two easy to fix issues that would have made this a five star rating.

Room Tip: Avoid third floor rear (even numbers) - they face a roof and wall.

The Hotel is very historic and is worthy of all of the positive reviews. We were there with a business group and really enjoyed all of the amenities.
The food was fantastic.
Room was spacious.
There was some construction between bldgs, making it a little difficult to move back and forth.

I like visiting St Petersburg and, when I do, I enjoy staying at this historic hotel. Full of character, it is in a superb location on the waterfront, with the museum, restaurants and art galleries only a short walk away.

The entrance leads into a large long elegant lobby, which contains reception, seating areas and links to the bars, restaurants and other facilities. Checking in and out was easy and efficient. I had a large room on the 5th floor overlooking the garden, which was very quiet and I also tried the bar one night for drinks and for fish and chips, which was excellent and more intimate than the large dining room.

The décor is a mixture of contemporary furnishings set against the historic interiors, with modern art and glass celebrating the local glass industries. There is also a small exhibition on the history of the hotel, which is fascinating.

There is refurbishment work going on, but it is only noticeable if you are trying to reach some of the function rooms, the gym and tennis courts, the temporary route to which takes you into the service areas of the hotel. Otherwise, it is totally hidden and they do try to provide as much information as possible about the temporary route.

I was there for a conference and the arrangements were excellent as were the refreshments at breaks and lunches.

Marina has no jetty at entrance so waves and tidal currents rock and roll your boat night and day. Stayed here 3 days and would never stay here again. Barnacles on the pilings scratched my boat when I docked and before I could get the fenders deployed. I complained about the barnacles and the marina employee said they would chisel them off the next day - did not follow through. Many docks have barnacles protruding which will scratch your hull. The hotel is under renovation and I am sure will be nice when it is finished. The main restaurant is overpriced and has a limited menu. The pool is small. The showers are in the health club and are very nice towels and virtually all toiletries are provided.

Room Tip: Docked at the marina - did not book a room

Greetings, and thank you for your time in sharing your recent experience. We do have many marina guests who stay with us and return time-after-time to take advantage of the wonderful amenities including use of all of the resort facilities (pool, spa, etc.) and to receive a 10% discount off of food and beverages and services booked at the Day Spa. Your feedback is important, and I have made sure to share with our team. My apology that we let you down. We would certainly love to welcome you back again in the future with the hopes that we can provide a more positive stay and perhaps more favorable winds. Thank you again.
