An older-styled, full of character place, with pleasant staff in a great location. Some things are showing their age but overall a really decent base. Food and bar are ok-to-good for Florida and service was always terrific.

We are experienced travelers and wanted a classy but relaxed environment to take a deep breath. Well guess what ? We found it. This property takes you back into the renaissance peroid and then the interior decor brings you unto 2015. Bright colors, with the mix of modern and classic textures. The rooms and baths were a little less than...

I have stayed at this hotel many times and previously rated it quite well. I am not sure if management changed but the hotel definitely has gone down hill - mostly in the service area.

Greetings from the Vinoy, and thank you for being a loyal customer.

This is a Marriott property. The hotel is a bit older and some of the cosmetics are a bit out dated BUT everything worked perfectly fine! Be sure you get a room in the guest towers....gorgeous views of the bay. When I checked in, late afternoon, there was a bit of confusion whether or not my room was ready. Not...

the Vanoy renaissance managed by Marriott is outstanding! A historical hotel from 1925 that has been updated while retaining its charm. Very comfortable , beautiful, water views, patios for dinning and drinks and people watching ( often the rich and famous or Major League Baseball players). Pricey, but watch for seasonal deals!

I visited the Vinoy for the first time last week for a large conference. I must say I was pleasantly surprised! Friendly, helpful staff, good bars, quality catering. I know the conference will be held in the same place next year, so I'm already looking forward to it!

I attended a meeting of approximately 300 people in this hotel. The hotel is beautiful and has been updated since I was there a few years ago. The color scheme in the main hallway is Aqua, white and silver, with many small alcoves to sit and visit with friends. The staff was fantastic, food delicious and as always the grounds...

Every part of our short stay at the Vinoy was perfect.

This was my first stay here, and I enjoyed the old, pink architecture and good location. Wi-Fi was terrific; you could still pick up your room signal from the public areas of the hotel. Better-than-average quality of food for the various meeting meals we had here. The room was up to date decor-wise, and the bathroom was bigger than average,...

We stayed for a conference in March,2015. The hotel staff were very friendly and efficient ! All the meals were top notch and the different meeting and party rooms met the needs of our group.
