With historic elegance and a very modern sense of independence, The Vinoy® offers a conference and vacation experience unlike any other. Ideally situated waterfront in St. Pete, Florida’s thriving downtown district, this award-winning hotel is a short distance from Vinoy Park, Tropicana Field and the Dali Museum. Gracefully designed rooms and suites retain the glamour and charisma befitting our heritage, while adding contemporary perks like WiFi, flat-screen TVs and well-lit workspaces. Elsewhere at the hotel, take a complimentary fitness class, challenge someone to a game of tennis, lounge by one of the pools, tee off from the course at Vinoy Golf Club or book a treatment at the spa. Thanks to its waterfront location and private marina, you can charter a boat and explore the bay. Our resort dining options range from American fare to sushi and are sure to delight. The historic ballrooms and flexible meeting venues are a unique backdrop for events of any size.

There’s something for everyone — from a golf course and tennis to spa treatments, a Kid’s Camp and a family pool with a splash pad. Immerse in the fascinating history of St. Petersburg with a visit to Paul’s Landing, which overlooks the marina and showcases fresh seafood. Spectacular venues, modern facilities, delicious catering and world-class service: The hotel has all one needs.
