Got a great price on a one night stay via Groupon and reserved for the Saturday night of the Boat Show. This is a period hotel from the 20's with updated, often modern, amenities. Very friendly and cooperative front desk staff in Jane, who is a whirling dervish, who does not make enough money for all that she does. The Chef, Carl, I think, was great. We sat on the porch with our complimentary bottle of wine and talked with a few other couples as the day moved to evening. Not much noise for downtown. Happy hour came with popcorn and other high carb fare and more wine. Carl talked us into the hotel's dinner special instead of going out on the town to eat. For $59 we each got soup (a very good butternut squash), split a large shrimp cocktail, I had steak (not a great cut but edible) and lobster (a whole lobster) with red potatoes while my wife had a stuffed chicken breast and asparagus, and for desert we split a massive chunk of apple pie with french vanilla ice cream melting on top. More glasses of wine and conversation with others followed. I made sure I tipped the chef very well, and we climbed the stairs (no elevator) to our room on the 3rd floor rear of the hotel. We had absolutely no noise of any kind to disturb us and a period room that was small but comfortable. The claw foot tub was a reminder of days gone by but got us clean. We woke up early, passed on the carb laden breakfast buffet and as Carl was not ready to serve a regular breakfast before we needed to leave, we missed the opportunity for another well prepared meal. Imagine our surprise when our bill, with the Groupon for the room, too many glasses of wine, apple pie, parking, tax, etc. came to less than $80 (with the Groupon we still spent less than $160 total). We will be back next year for the Boat Show and will definitely stay at the Pier Hotel.
