It’s time to check out the Pink Lady’s new look.

The first round of renovations is completely done at St. Pete’s Vinoy Resort and Golf Club. The 354-key hotel just joined Marriott Bonvoy’s Autograph Collection — a curated group of hotels around the world that share one thing in common: an undeniable sense of place.

Here’s some of the new upgrades:

  • The arrival court is now a stunning oasis of carefully re-laid 1920s brickwork surrounded by lush, indigenous foliage.
  • The Veranda has undergone a facelift — but keeping up with traditions, they installed custom-built rocking chairs. Plus, the area has a brand new cocktail bar, offering shareable bites like the Bianca Flatbread and the red snapper crudo.
  • Stop by Lottie, a contemporary French patisserie serves up a mean Key Lime pie, fluffy, yellow pistachio cake, and over 20 types of chocolate truffles.
  • The residential suites now feature vibrantly colored custom paintings by artist Alicia LaChance.

The hotel has plans to remodel its pool deck and add an outdoor, full-service, Latin-inspired restaurant by summertime.
