Not unlike little Charlie Bucket in “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory,” those who find a Golden Ticket will reap the rewards – from an exquisite dinner for two at Marchand’s Bar & Grill or Fred’s Steakhouse, to a 60-minute spa treatment at the Vinoy Day Spa & Salon, to a round of golf at the private 18-hole golf course.
In addition to the Willy Wonka-inspired surprises, guests can celebrate their stays at the Vinoy with a $100 resort credit per two-night stay, and additional $50 credit per additional night.
With that credit, guests may choose to get into the holiday spirit with an edible replica of the resort, a holiday-themed history tour and more! Those who are spa-minded will love to indulge in a Peppermint Pedi, Warm Vanilla Sugar Scrub, or a Sinful Cinnamon Massage. Ahhhhh… the holidays!
The Vinoy, listed on the National Registry of Historic Places, is a gem in downtown St. Petersburg. All 361 guestrooms and suites in the seven-story hotel have recently been renovated, while maintaining the resort’s Mediterranean Revival architecture.
Those seeking a discerning, luxurious resort in St. Pete will be pleased with themselves when they select the Vinoy – especially so if they find a Golden Ticket!
