Last of the Vinoy Photos



The view from our room - the waterfront of St Pete and the pool area


From the historical wall


Fred's - where we ate. It has a speakeasy atmosphere.


Me Madre


The courtyard patio from the restaurant French doors - notice the waterfall from the pool area.


Crab and Asparagus fritters on Kim Chee and some green puree


My Chilean sea bass over saffron couscous with miso and sugar snap peas


Mom's beef tenderloin with pancetta risotto and pureed leaks


A strawberry dessert - forgot the name


Mom doesn't do breakfast and I wasn't interested in the big mother's day brunch so I opted for the simple buffet.



On our way to checkout and the spa this morning. My mom's purse and luggage match, lol.


Da spa and da end!

Vinoy Art and Grounds

Just some shots from around the grounds and in the building. Lots of hidden art pieces.

From the mezzanine









 Gorgeous Chihuly glass display


 There was a snack station and a station with water and punch.
 A mermaid of wire and seashels


Sitting areas






 Most of the tile was covered with beautiful rugs but this is what the tile floors really look like.
 Ballrooms




Waterfall from pool area down to the patio area outside the restaurant where we ate.


Mother's Day at the Vinoy in St Petersburg

Mom and I stayed at the historic Vinoy on St Petersburg waterfront last night, had a gourmet dinner, and spa services this morning before returning home. The old hotel is beautiful and very well run. Here's a few shots - more to follow:

The veranda where we waited until our room was ready
The view from the veranda of St Pete's waterfront.


 Mom enjoying her coffee and scone on the veranda.

The coffee shop had interesting donut combinations

Our double queen room


The room was huge!

Nice sitting area which we did use.


Bathroom had separate WC area and double sinks. We also had huge closest with all the ammentiies but didn't photo well.
