We were in town for a wedding-the wedding at the hotel was beautiful in the tea garden and reception in Fred's was very nice. The hotel room (we received an upgrade to the Bayshore tower) was ok, the view of the decimated pool was terrible and the noise from the jackhammers was unacceptable on the weekend (even though clearly stated...

So glad that you could join us for a recent wedding at The Vinoy and that it was beautiful. As you can imagine, there is never an ideal time to do any type of redevelopment. This time of year can sometimes be cooler which would detract pool goers but the weather has been beautiful so we are happy to accommodate...

Had the 1&1/2 hour tour that finished with a 3 course lunch. Lunch was outstanding...tour mediocre. Shirley was our guide and struggled with the history points. Our group was small enough to get questions asked. Interesting location that help form St. Petersburg 's place in Florida past. Worth the visit, as was the walk around the marina.

We went to the Vinoy for lunch the other day. We did not go on the tour, but one of my friends had spent the evening at the hotel. We were able to see her room. Just lovely. Then we went to the dining area and enjoyed a wonderful lunch. Our waitress was so very kind and informative. We will...

My niece had her wedding here and I hardly know where to begin. First the splendor and elegance of the Vinoy is breathtaking. The location is fantastic. All of the staff were wonderful. The wedding came off perfectly, the cocktail hour was very organized and ready as soon as the wedding was over and the after dinner and dance was...

A beautiful old gem, right on the bay, just blocks from downtown shops and restaurants. Beautiful views of the water and endless parks abound. Friendly courteous service, excellent food served in a truly grand historic setting with tennis and golf nearby.

This hotel belongs to the National Historic Hotels of America -- and reflects the grandeur of days gone by. It is now part of the Marriott chain. We had a lovely room in the new tower (1990's) - very spacious with a king bed and a balcony with water views. There are lovely Murano glass fixtures in the lobby and...

We've stayed at this Renaissance property 3 or 4 times over the past 5 years. It's a classic, historical hotel that has been renovated well. In Jan., we used some Marriott Rewards points for a free night (Platinum Elite member). Unlike our rooms in the past, the room we had was quite small, though it did have a limited view...

I love the classic old hotels, especially the ones that have been restored and brought up to modern standards without sacrificing their classic charm. My room faced the marina and had a very sunny exposure which was very welcome coming from the dark and dreary midwest in January. The room was large, easily accommodating two queen sized beds, and the...

We had the pleasure of meeting friends for wine and snacks at this classic Florida hotel. The wine list was delightful as was the service and terrace ambiance. Hence we plan to make this our go to spot for cocktails and light snacks in future......

A superb blend of fabulous customer service, famous historical hotel, and fantastic dining experience. In my opinion, has the best fish tacos I have had anywhere. It is on the very short list of vacation spots to which I would return.
