Overview

Travelers rave about hotel's waterfront location and superb customer service
A stay here is expensive

Picturesquely positioned on St. Petersburg, Florida's beautiful waterfront, The Vinoy Renaissance St. Petersburg Resort & Golf Club has elegant and anchored boats in its sights. Travelers say the hotel's interior is just as beautiful. Guest rooms have marble bathrooms, pillow-top mattresses and minibars. And the service fares well with recent lodgers. Visitors say the staff is friendly and accommodating, especially at the front desk. While the hotel sits approximately 23 miles from Tampa, recent guests say there's no need to leave St. Petersburg for fun to-dos: the resort enjoys access to the 18-hole Vinoy Golf Club as well as tennis courts. Travelers also heap praise on this Renaissance's restaurants, especially Marchand's Bar & Grill. On the other hand, visitors note that a stay here will set you back a pretty penny. But Marriott Bonvoy members can use or earn points here for additional perks.
