Presenting, The Vinoy Resort

St.Petersburg, FL


The Vinoy Hotel and Golf Resort in Saint Petersburg FL, just a few blocks away from our home office. We are honored to take part in restoring several areas of the historic hotel. The Vinoy Park Hotel was built in 1925 by oil tycoon Aymer Vinoy Laughner. Construction began in February and took 10 months to complete, with the hotels grand opening on December 31. During those years It was a seasonal hotel, open from December to March. Rates were $20.00 a night, the highest in the area at that time where celebrities ranging from Babe Ruth, Herbert Hoover, Calvin Coolidge and James Stewart are known to have stayed there. During World War II, the hotel closed on July 3, 1942 and was taken over by the U.S. Army for use as an Army training school. The hotel reopened in December 1944 and was sold to Charles Alberding in 1945 for $700,000. The hotel prospered for several decades but fell into disrepair in 1960. In 1974, the Vinoy Park closed and most of its contents were sold at auction. On September 11, 1978, it was added to the U.S. National Register of Historic Places. The hotel sat vacant until 1990, when it was bought by the Vinoy Development Corporation, which renovated for $93 million. The hotel reopened in 1992 as the Stouffer Vinoy Resort. Stouffer Hotels was bought by Renaissance Hotels the next year, and the hotel became the Renaissance Stouffer Vinoy Resort, and then in 1996 the Renaissance Vinoy Resort. In August 2018, the hotel was sold to SCG Hospitality, owned by Tampa Bay Buccaneers owner Bryan Glazer. The sale included a golf club and 74-slip marina as well as the 362 room hotel. The amount of the sale was reported to be approximately $188.5 million.
