    Historical Traveler Reviews Pier Hotel Saint Petersburg

    Best Home Away from Home

    from

    My husband and I had the most extrodinary stay at The Pier Hotel in St. Pete, Florida! My goodness where do I start.......the room was romantic and spacious, the staff was incredible, Jane and Can could not do enough to make sure we were always informed and had everything we needed. They knew what we needed before we asked! Just a "home away from home". I have already booked our next trip at the Pier and would not go anywhere else. Rick Hoe is the owner and was also at our beckon call. What a delight! I would recommend this to everyone, especially if you want that warm, friendly, personal atmosphere......I will never stay anywhre else when visiting St. Pete! The hotel is so immaculate and you can see the pride that the staff takes in making your stay a memorable one. Love it, love it, love it!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Great Hotel, loved it!

    from

    My husband and I just got back from a 3 night stay at the Pier Hotel and we had such a wonderful time. The hotel is a small european style hotel, rooms are smaller than most standard hotel rooms, but the charm and history of the hotel well make up for it.

    The staff also make the hotel as well, they are all so friendly and helpful, you really feel that they care about your stay with them. David & James were both very sweet and polite. Kam, the manager was soooo great, never seen a manger work the front desk like him and take care of all your needs and request, great dinner suggustions and reserved it for us...does he go home???

    Breakfast and happy hour were very nice touches, and it seemed everyone staying at the hotel were very nice as well, had some good conversations over drinks.

    I would say, if ever in St. Petersburg, skip the chains and stay at this lovely historic hotel.

    Really nice hotel

    from

    This is a really nice hotel. It is in a great location close to great shopping and places to eat. The staff are very friendly and the whole place has a very nice atmosphere. Good buffet breakfast and a really great happy hour each evening. Only two things that were a dissapointment. The room and bathroom was not as clean as it could have been. and i am not a clean freak !! and the towels had really seen better days. to be honest i would have used them as rags. They were really old and had holes in them Having said all that, would i stay there again ? You bet i would.

    Very disappointed

    from

    after having read the reviews, imagine my dissapointment with the cramped and dark room, the filthy carpet, the threadbare bedding, and the total shabbiness of the hall and accomodations. the breakfast was awful, stale muffins and bagels, warm oj, and not much else. could have stayed in a chain much cheaper and gone out to breakfast. the parking was free but up three levels in a filthy garage across the street that was not readily accessible at our convenience.

    Lovely boutique hotel

    from

    pleasantly surprised. Very clean, well maintained older hotel with old world feeling. High speed internet (no charge) free parking, free breakfast, and a happy hour at night. Very nice clientelle, but management could perhaps be more pleasant. Will DEFINITELY stay there again when in St. Pete/Tampa area.

    Wonderful Stay

    from

    What a great stay at The Pier Hotel in St. Petersburg!! Best thing was the staff, Kan and Jane were top notch, they made us feel so welcomed and suggusted great places to eat and to go visit. I felt like I was at home away from home thanks to them.

    Room was very nice, well decorated in like a 40's style, great feel to it...Bed was awesome! Bathroom was small, but it worked out fine.

    Loved the breakfast and the free happy hour, nice meeting place to visit with other guest, lot of fun and relaxing.

    I will for sure stay here again...Thanks Kan and Jane for a great stay!

    Elegant style and great service

    from

    We had a great time at The Pier Hotel. The hotel is elegant with a wonderful 1920's feel that has been beautifully restored. The staff was so friendly we felt right at home. We felt the rates were very reasonable and included lots of freebies like, breakfast, parking, local calls, high speed internet, and best of all free drinks every night during happy hour. It is right downtown walking distance to all the shops and waterfront, and the business district. It was our first time at the hotel so we were a little nervous about it not being a flag hotel, but we were very pleasantly surprised. We will be back every time we stay in St. Petersburg. Which is a great little city to visit.

    Pier Hotel is pleasant and decent

    from

    We just stayed at the Pier Hotel in room 207 for 3 nights, from Friday through Sunday night in early June 2004. It was our first time in St. Petersburg and we chose it because of its website and due to its AAA rating, also from this website. We paid $88/night because they had an off-season special on their website. It was decent, the room was fine, we had a single room with a king size bed, air conditioning, free local phone calls, t.v., a fridge and microwave. At nighttime, light from the hallway comes into the window above the door, which is kind of distracting. The shower curtain in the claw-foot bathtub was filthy with pink mold so I left a note asking housekeeping to change it (with a $3 tip) and they changed it. The fridge was clean but the inside of the microwave had food spatters. I am pretty picky and didn't have a problem staying there. Jane at reception, she is the hotel's marketing and public relations manager, is very pleasant, nice and helpful in recommendations. We ate at Pacific Wave restaurant (which was recommended by the hotel and also a New York Times article)--I would NOT eat there, the food was mediocre and a complete ripoff. I asked the server how much the macadamia-encrusted sea bass special was and she said $29, when the bill came it was $36. If the food had been excellent I'd be happy paying that, but for that price, it should have been delicious (the fish was totally overcooked and tasteless). We told Jane about our experience, she was very apologetic and recommended a much more reasonable place nearby. St. Petersburg does not have that much going on except for the Salvador Dali Museum (worth the trip alone!), it is pretty dead at night and at times unsafe. The hotel is in a good location, it's easy to walk almost everywhere or drive and find a spot. There is free parking across the street in the garage but you have to park on the roof, where your car gets completely baked, plus it's closed on Sundays. There's a lot for $5 next door to the hotel. The free breakfast they offer each morning from 8-10? AM is fine, they have english muffins, bagels, cold cereal, coffee, orange juice, oatmeal, and fruit from a can. Oh and also granola bars and fruit n nut bars. The guy who mans the front desk in the evening, I think his name is James, is pretty strange but harmless. All in all, it is a very inexpensive place to stay, we felt safe and it is nice and quiet. Things we recommend to do in St. Pete's: visit the beach, go dolphin watching on a dolphin boat, visit the Dali museum. Don't go to: The International Museum, Sunken Gardens (nice but not worth it, we thought), Pacific Wave Cafe. We went kayaking in Ft. Desoto Park to see manatees and dolphins but missed them! Oh--and good luck finding a gas station in downtown St. Pete's. We drove around for 15 minutes and had to ask the locals where one was. We think it was the only one in the entire town.

    Good choice

    from

    We visited St. Petersburg in March and did not want to stay at a chain hotel. We wanted something with a bit of local charm and we found that at The Pier hotel. The staff were VERY nice and accomodating. Although the hotel is not on the waterfront the location is good and the lovely front porch was a great place to sit out and enjoy the complimentary cocktails they served every evening. This hotel was in a good location, had a lot of charm and great staff the only thing I will say is try to request one of the rooms closer to the front of the building which get more light. The rooms themselves are not luxurious but are well kept. A very pleasant experience and would go back there again!

    GREAT place to stay

    from

    Stayed there this summer and it was a welcome and quiet respite from the heat. The place is beautiful, amazingly restored and looked after with lots of attention to detail. It has a great location right near everything in the downtown area. The staff was nice and courteous and it was a great value for a bed and breakfast feel. Highly recommend it!

    I'm hoping for an uneventful trip, in all sense of the word, with everyone's health maintained and no serious bumps in the proverbial road. I'm ready for some adventure and new experiences. Seeing things through Will's eyes. And pecan rolls. Because what is a road trip without a stop at Stuckey's. Really.

    ... shop is down an alley and what makes this place unique is the fact that when the sandwich shop owner looks out his window all he can see his three windows with three different girls in it. And when the girls look out their windows, all they can see is his shop. So they stare at each other all day and night. While hanging out in his shop, we saw pimps and transvestites and working girls coming in to buy beer and sandwiches. They all seemed to have tab, and the guy also runs ...
