Went with my family of 4 we had 2 days to kill between vacations. We just drove up to get a room and everything was perfect. The front desk people were nice as were all the workers we had contact with. One of the pool attendants actually played catch with my son. Will definitely go back especially to catch a Rays game!

Somehow we were booked with incorrect room type. Although we made it clear we were a family of
Family of 4, they gave us only one king bed & couldn't/wouldn't move us. At least, they provided a cot. Pool staff is friendly & so was the concierge that helped with area restaurant suggestions, so we will how the rest of our stay goes.

We went for July 4th weekend. Nice historic hotel. Walking distance to a few nice restaurants and nice marina and park across the street. Pool very crowded due to holiday, but very nice.
Staff very accommodating. Bed was too high for elderly father and they actually took the box spring out to lower the bed. Brought microwave and mini fridge upon request.
Reservations dept painstakingly got us connecting rooms on 100% occupied weekend. I really appreciated this last minute when I realized I had not previously requested.
Hotel clean overall but showing wear here and there. Would recommend to those who don't mind not being on the beach.

I felt as though I was staying at a millionaires resort - worth the money. The pool is amazing and the property is beautiful. The staff is very helpful and friendly. The food was displayed very nice and tasted wonderful.

Excellent location facing the bay. Walking distance to restaurants and bars. Very courteous staff. Definitely will visit again. Elevators are little tight but tolerable. Great place to have conferences.

after living within st petersburg, fl for many years now, we were delighted to stay at the historic Vinoy hotel for 2 days to enjoy their 'resort' hotel. however we were proven wrong. the Vinoy is in dire need of a renovation and does not have that resort feel. It is evident everywhere: from the elevator, to the furniture inside the room. For $239/night we were expecting more. First the pro's: the staff were friendly, attentive and knowledgeable. The location is fantastic; walking distance to downtown, central ave, and running/biking trails. There is also a small Chihuly exhibit in the lobby along with a huge Chihuly chandelier in the ball room. Con's: for a resort, it was not polished. IE the footstool of the room chair was dirty and faded. The bathroom was ok, but there was hair in the commode closet. there was no coffee maker or water or tea in the room. wifi was $15/hr in the room however it was free in the lobby area. The hotel seemed to nickel and dime everything. Although the decor in the main lobby was contemporary, we were disappointed not to see more of the historic hotel throughout the building. you can see the original wood beams painted from 90 yrs ago, which was beautiful. there is a small historic section too but thats about it. When we stay at the Hotel Monteleone in New Orleans, we are blown away at the historic grandeur. Even the rooms are historic yet appeal to the modern customer. At Vinoy, its lost. So i gave the hotel an average rating for its walking convenience to everything and to a great staff. But thumbs down to the dated hotel that does not reflect its historic charm. I have stayed at Hampton Inn's and even a Microtel where the rooms were much more comfortable, convenient with free wifi.

Room Tip: ask to stay on a higher level floor, 5 or up. you get better views and less children. I also recom...

It's always a pleasure to welcome a local of St. Petersburg to the Vinoy to experience a getaway so close to home. Thank you for joining us for the weekend. We certainly appreciated the detailed review and the compliments about our staff and your overall experience. I do apologize that we did not meet your expectations as far as the aesthetics, but please know we are always making improvements to keep our historically hip building new and well-maintained. We are happy to celebrate our history in every way possible. In addition to our History Gallery, we conduct History Tours of the property. The tour can be combined, but does not have to be, as a package with lunch in our main dining room, Marchand's. Please join us for a tour in the future. Call me directly if I can assist with that at 727-824-8028. Hopefully we will have the opportunity to serve you again in the future. Your feedback is appreciated. Thank you for sharing.

This is a wonderful place to stay in the heart of St. Petersburg. It was built in 1925, but has had several renovations and is really up to date in all respects. The service was fantastic, rooms were nice, clean and quiet. The hotel has a great deal of charm about it, and although there were a lot of people there it did not seem crowded. We stayed three nights there and glad we did.
