As I mentioned yesterday, my girlfriends and I took a little staycation to the Vinoy on Friday. The Vinoy invited us up for a complimentary night to take a look at the new sample rooms. JB and I stayed at the Vinoy (and loved it!) about 5 years ago. I was newly pregnant, and no one knew. So this post is extra funny (: …. Anyway, I remembered the old rooms, so it was a treat to stay in what will be the newly decorated rooms. They are gorgeous! Take a few peeks for yourself …
one of my favorite touches! this was outside on the patio. this wallpaper ceiling! so fun. The marble looking backdrop is actually wallpaper!
I loved how modern but approachable everything in the room was. And the beds are still as comfy as I remembered!!
After arriving on Friday and talking our heads off for three hours in the hotel beds, we headed to dinner at Marchand’s. It was such a fun dinner and incredibly delicious. We planned to head out to the Birchwood rooftop bar, but headed in and fell asleep somewhere before 1am chatting some more.
The next day we wandered around the property. It was built in 1925 and they have an entire area showing the hotel in different decades. There’s also pictures of when it when into ruins in the 70’s. Thank goodness that restored it to the glamorous hotel it is today.
I love how much is within walking distance of the Vinoy. The MFA and the Dali Museum are world class museums right around the corner. Central ave and beach road both have a ton of fun places to eat and shop. St Pete is such an eclectic and fun little town, and there’s so much yet to explore.
Thanks Vinoy for having us up for a night, we had the best time!!
