We stayed at Vinoy for 5 days for a friend's wedding - what an amazing venue, so beautiful! The food and service were perfect, we all had a fantastic weekend. The front desk staff also hooked us up with a great baby sitter for our daughter!!

Refurbished grand hotel that has wonderful amenities. We got there and took the historical tour which I would highly recommend to get more of an appreciation of the hotel. The rooms are well-appointed, and most have exceptional views. There are tennis courts, a golf club three miles away and a spa. The best thing about the Vinoy is its location....

Happened upon the Vinoy while exploring the area. What a treat! Enjoyed exploring the lobby and learning the history of this fabulous old hotel and resort. Stopped in the front and enjoyed a couple of signature drinks in the sun! Everyone should do this!

The Vinoy Peninsula is so calm and tranquil, with views of the water and boating, and a nearby park. Hungry? Lots of food to explore on and near Beach Dr. What could be better? A nearby hotel room at the Vinoy Renaissance does make it better! We were lucky enough to have a room near the top, with different views...

I've reviewed this property previously. However it's been some time since I returned and things have not changed. This is still a great property. Upkeep has been great, the room was very clean, service was great as usual; I just can't wait for the next big update at the hotel. My suggestion, since it's a resort, the licker rooms at...

Elegant historic hotel in a great location. Wonderful views of the bay and marina. Easy walking distance to outstanding restaurants, museums, galleries, and shopping. Check-in staff was extremely helpful in getting us a great room and keeping our appointment on time--worked hard to get us into a room so we could freshen up before a 4:00 meeting. Room was very...

We arrived early. The front desk told us our room would be ready shortly and took our phone number. Two and a half hours later they had not called. We checked the desk and they had forgotten to call. Asked for early room cleaning and am sitting in lounge at 2:00 for a cleaning. Hopefully they will exchange the dirty...

This hotel was amazing. I was here for a business trip, so unfortunately, I did not have the chance to enjoy the hotel and the area as much as I would have liked.
