We had originally booked a different hotel but thank goodness, at the last minute changed our reservations to the Vinoy. We had never been to St. Petersburg, but a Wine Weekend to support the Museum of Fine Arts brought us to this lovely city. The hotel was perfectly located for all our activities. I read other reviews that mentioned a...

We are thrilled that your plans included staying at The Vinoy while you attended the Wine Weekend to benefit The Museum of Fine Arts. What a great cause! Thank you for taking the time to review your stay. I hope that when you return, you will be able to visit our History Gallery right off of our lobby, or better...

This was an upscale hotel in a choice location. Parks, museums, restaurants within easy walking distance. The nearby Chihuly glass display is incredible! Lovely decor in main lobby. All the shopping, one could want-or just look. We stayed on a 4th floor tower room with a balcony-a newer part of the hotel but worth it for the view and balcony....

Beautiful location, easy to go on long walks on the waterfront. We got a room in the new bldg, with a balcony and a bay view. The staff is very hospitable. Enjoyed the Dale Chihuly pieces in the lobby. Beds are too soft for comfort.

When you enter the grand lobby you are greeted by a beautiful display of Chihualy glassware. We had to wait over an hour for our room to be ready (well past 4 o'clock check-in time) but the receptionist said it would be a nicer room. We could have checked in to another room, but it was certainly worth the wait....

We stayed there in September 2014 for couple days as a part of our vacation. Front Desk staff was very nice and helpful as well as concierge. Beautiful historic building, rooms are very nice and modern, spotless bathroom. They have the most comfortable bed and linen. We ended up buying exactly the same pillows and duvet for our home. It's...

Went to St. Pete for a Blues Fest. Great place to stay, quite luxurious! Very clean, tasteful and beautiful comfy bed. Food was good in the restaurant, reasonably priced! Would definitely stay there again!

This was our second stay at the Vinoy, and it was as wonderful as we anticipated it to be. Both times we've chosen to stay in the old section of the hotel and our rooms and baths have been very large and beautifully decorated. Like we did last year, we upgraded to a bay view room on an upper floor,...

Please make The Vinoy a yearly tradition, like so many of our guests...

I have lived in Tampa Bay and never stayed here. So glad that business meetings held here forced the stay. It is the most beautiful historic hotel in the region. It is historic yet the rooms are large and updated. The bed is super comfy. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars was due to shady characters...

My husband and I got a great rate flying to Florida so we decided to spend a long weekend at the lovely, historical Vinoy hotel. We got a good rate because of a special for staying four nights. The hotel is just lovely from the outside, and when you walk in you expect it to be old fashioned, but it...
