Several friends had recommended the Renaissance Vinoy as THE place to stay in St. Petersburg and we are so glad they did. Our experience was perfect--from the greeting by the valets (dressed as a 1920s golfers) who parked our car to the young woman in the gift shop who offered to mail a letter for me at checkout time and everything in between. In fact, from the moment we walked up the steps to the huge veranda spanning the width of the hotel's front facade, we felt as if we were stepping back in time to a more gracious period, the only difference being this hotel offers all the modern amenities.
Our room was spacious and contained a very comfortable king bed from which we could watch the large flat screen TV or the gorgeous view of the harbor through the wall of windows. The bathroom was also large, modern, and equipped with a rain shower along with plenty of towels.
We enjoyed a glass of iced tea on the aforementioned veranda and later on, after a walk around the surrounding area which includes many shops, restaurants and museums, we relaxed there again with a pre-dinner glass of wine. We ate dinner in the main hotel dining room ( there are 4 from which to choose) and it was superb, especially considering that the chef needed to accommodate my husband's dietary requests. Service was flawless. Ditto for breakfast the next morning.
Because we could only stay one night, we didn't get a chance to try many of the hotel's other amenities--gorgeous pool, fitness facility, tennis courts, spa etc. This is a true resort, right in St. Petersburg. The single most outstanding feature of this hotel is the courteous attention to detail provided by the expertly-trained staff. We will most definitely be back!
