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.... More

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... More

I've stayed at the Vinoy several times while in town for business. I find each stay to be better than the last. The location of the hotel is perfect! There are beautiful running trails and wonderful restaurants and shopping within walking distance. During this stay, it was a bit rainy so I spent my time at the Health Club and... More

I just breathe better when I stay here! The food at the restaurants is great. The pool is so relaxing. I love that there are so many cool bars and restaurants that you can walk to. The beautiful porch overlooks the marina and is a great place to have a drink.

The Vinoy is probably your best bet in St.Pete. The staff is very nice and accommodating, incredibly nice actually. The rest of the hotel could use a total renovation. The restaurant's food was good but it took an hour for breakfast on a tuesday. Room service was stunningly fast which was good but it was a bit uninspired. The bathroom... More

My wife and I stayed at the Vinoy to celebrate our wedding anniversary on the weekend of 27th September and left feeling underwhelmed. Whilst this is not a cheap hotel, I find it unacceptable to be charged for car parking ($14 per day) and Internet (circa $16 - $18 per day) whilst many lower range hotels include these services for...
