CLEARWATER, Fla. — Ambassador Limousine announced this week that it has been named the exclusive transportation provider of the Vinoy Renaissance Resort in St. Petersburg, Florida.

Ambassador emerged as the winner in a three horse race and signed a five-year deal with the Vinoy.

Ken Lucci, Ambassador Limousine CEO, said the partnership further brands his company’s reputation as the premiere transportation provider in West Central Florida while establishing a higher level of service for tourists who visit St. Petersburg.

“The Vinoy is a staple of luxury in Tampa Bay,” Lucci said in a press release. “I am confident Ambassador will further enhance the level of service this elite resort offers its guests and help encourage other travelers to select this destination for their next getaway.”

Ambassador will dedicate a fleet of vehicles solely to the resort, working to change the philosophy of transportation from a hotel necessity to a resort amenity.

"All of this has allowed us to position ourselves better in the market, and provides us with an enhancement that is not offered at the majority of our local competitors", said Tim Reuther, Director of Event Management at the Vinoy Renaissance Resort.

The Clearwater limousine company already maintains contracts with the Sandpearl and Saddlebrook Resorts in Clearwater and Tampa, respectively.
