ST. PETERSBURG — The Vinoy Renaissance Resort & Golf Club has started the next stage of its $50 million multi-year renovation and redevelopment — a 90-day closure of the new tower to transform its interior spaces and 102 guest rooms.

According to a press release, the historic building and all public spaces at the rest of the property will remain open for guests during the project.

“Guests can expect rooms and corridors to reflect the glamour of the 1920s, when the property was first opened, with accents inspired by our tropical surroundings, vibrant color palettes and a new, enchanted flare in textures and artwork,” says Vinoy General Manager Barbara Readey in a statement.

Renovations have already been done at the resort to the Snell Isle facilities, including at the clubhouse restaurant, pool, ballroom and golf course. At the main resort, enhancements are being made to the pool, fitness center, tennis courts, dining facilities, salon and day spa. The full resort redesign is expected to be finished in 2019.

The Vinoy opened on New Year's Eve in 1925. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Real estate investment trust FelCor is the ownership group for the Vinoy. It owns primarily upscale and luxury hotels in major urban and resort markets in the U.S., according to a press release.
