We stayed in this historic building in August during their hottest weather all year! Located near the Salvador Dali Museum, the arts district and the Tampa Bay Rays ballpark. Everything was within walking distance, live music, movies, restaurants, shopping. Easy on/off the highway, so day trips to Tarpon Springs and the sponge docks or Sarasota and the Ringling Brothers Museum... More

First let me tell you, make your reservation on the actual Pier Hotel website, much cheaper! I stayed in an Antique Double Bed room, for about $70, which is perfect size for a single traveler or even if you're w/ someone else. The location of the hotel is great...5 min walk to Clubs/Bars (and there's plenty of them to bar-hop... More

Wonderful place to stay. Nice central location. Also near local family. Staff was very nice and accommodating for a change in our travel schedule. Bed was comfortable and room was quiet. Try to stay here whenever we come to St. Pete.

This hotel is a quaint ,old place. It is clean, offers a continental bfast, great customer service. It's located near downtown St. Pete, near the Sundial area. Easy walk to restaurants and up and coming nightlife. I got a great price on hotels.com

This hotel seems more like an 'ordinary old' hotel versus a 'vintage' hotel, as described. We arrived a little after 10p. No one was available and somehow our reservation wasn't on the books. Via phone, we reached someone and we were able to stay the night in a free room. It was directly under the stairs. :( The bathroom is... More

If you like that kind of thing this is it. Old TV, a bathroom you have to go outside to turn around. Very inexpensive though...bring a mask as the light frim the hallways come into the room form the window over the door you cant block it and the curtains are basically worthless. No icemaker so bring some. WiFi sucked.

My mom and I stayed one night at this hotel. That was more than enough!!! The area is downtown St Pete just a few blocks from the harbor. However, to the right of the hotel is nothing but homeless hanging around. The parking lot adjacent to the hotel is confusing. There was a 6.00 charge for parking on a bumpy,... More

Love this place. Great low price for a nice clean and pretty place to stay. I like its antique and historic feel. The staff is friendly, they have continental breakfast with a nice coffee/cappuccino/ expresso/ Mocha machine. I have never had a bad experience there; I've stayed there many times. The bath tub is also old school and really nice.

The hotel is a historic building in the heart of downtown St. Petersburg just steps from nightlife and a few blocks to the harbor. The price was excellent for the location, and the room - while small, particularly the bathroom - had nice amenities including very nice bedding and toiletries. The place is perfect for travelers who aren't going to... More

This place could be really nice, but it's not. It's worn out and it looks that way. It needs a good scrub down and decor/ furniture/ textile refresher. We set the AC as low as possible and still baked all night.I would not stay here again. All that said, the staff we met were very nice. If they update and... More
