Renaissance Vinoy Resort

Hotel in St Petersburg

St Pete's coral-pink grande dame, the lavishly renovated 1925 Vinoy, is a sumptuous concoction of period style and 21st-century comforts, including an 18-hole golf course, a private marina, tennis courts, five restaurants and a 5000-sq-ft fitness center. Take note of off-season and online deals. It's worth it just for the gorgeous pool.
