“Nice Hotel in great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

This is a very nice hotel with a lot of character in a great location. We stayed here a couple of times and really enjoyed it both times. The location is great for a concert at Jannus Landing. They have a nice happy hour and the charm of the hotel is really nice. Sitting outside was like the Old Florida feeling.

We stayed one night at the Pier Hotel and just loved it! The staff was so welcoming from the moment we arrived. We arrived during happy hour and each offered a complimentary drink. Location was a short walk to downtown and great restaurants. From the moment we arrived until we left we felt taken care of and would definitely return!

We loved the charm of this historic hotel. From the claw-foot tub to the "real" room keys to the exceptional staff, we loved all of the quaint details! Happy hour was a great start to our evening, and we enjoyed meeting the chef.

Words can't explain how much I loved and enjoyed my stay at the pier. I have never encountered a more hospitable crowd of workers. From when I walked in til the time I left I felt special and really taken care of. The rooms are good sized and clean. Happy hour and dinner were full of laughs and my friends and I made great memories. Chef really aided with that. From start to finish the pier is quite the experiance. Thank you Pier staff for all you did for us to make our trip special and everyone reading this you will not be disappointed.

It's not a new hotel. It reminded me of my childhood when we went to Atlantic City and stayed a few blocks off of the boardwalk. BUT, a few friends came into down and we stayed with them here and had the time of our life. GET the deluxe room and book directly with them for the best price. They have a small breakfast, a quaint dining room for meals, and I loved my stay here. A few blocks from the heart of one of the countries great downtowns. The teens had a blast at the clubs, we took the ghost tour. Great jazz and food. Took in a Baseball game too! Great transportation. Easy walk to parks and museums. Staff couldn't be better, even the flaws added to the charm.

Room Tip: book with them directly for best price get deluxe room suite, it's so much bigger and worth the...

Ive stayed here time and time again for both business and pleasure for the last 4 years and enjoyed it every time.

New owners who have really changed it up for the good. Like the lovely renovations and the dinner they offer which chef toby jas never failed me on. The front desk staff is super helpful and I would recommend this to everyone.

Quaint old hotel in downtown St. Pete. Nicely appointed, walk to pier and other trendy local restaurants. While our ghost did not make its presence, we called to him during the night nonetheless! Sat on the Florida style veranda for our happy hour cocktail before heading out to a nice casual dinner and drinks.

Room Tip: Go upstairs.
