The elegant and historic Pier hotel offers the convenience and amenities of a modern hotel with the charm and atmosphere of a bed and breakfast. Meticulously restored to it's original grandeur in 2000, The Pier Hotel will take you back to a day when master craftsmen paid strict attention to detail. We offer complimentary breakfast, nightly reception with fine wines and beer, valet parking, high-speed Internet access and local phone calls, all as part of our outstanding service. We also offer in-room beverage service featuring a selection of fine wines and beers. Located in the heart of downtown St. Petersburg, The Pier is within walking distance to the waterfront district, with the best shopping, museums, entertainment and dining available in St. Petersburg. It's just a comfortable stroll to Vinoy Yacht basin, or a short ride to the beaches. Come see all that St. Petersburg has to offer and enjoy this AAA three-diamond luxury hotel with quality and service beyond your expectations. All rooms are non-smoking.

False advertising

I am in the Pier hotel right at this moment as I write my review. First the parking lot next door is not free. I had to pay to park there. Second there is no wine and pretzels at happy hour nor any form of breakfast, continental or otherwise. The advertising on this site is false. The room we stayed in is tiny, we had two double beds in our room. The mattresses were horrible, my daughter couldn't sleep, she was feeling the springs. It was a little rainy and chilly weather here last night and we asked for extra blankets they had one but it was dirty. The bathroom is so tiny I am surprised the door shut when I was inside of it. The air conditioner is a winnow unit, we ran it all night to keep the humidity in the room under control. I am so sorry I picked this hotel, I really thought it was going to be cute and fun to stay here, instead it was a nightmare. Don't stay here and this is coming from a person who never writes reviews.

Charming!

Being on the Register for Historic Places, I went in to the hotel expecting a nostalgic feel. I was delighted, it was very well maintained, clean and every bit as charming as I expected. What a refreshing break from the cookie cutter hotel chains. It did lack the contemporary amenities, but made up for it in charm and nostalgia. We loved it and will definitely stay here again.

Overnight in St Pete

The staff was very friendly. Offered complimentary drinks in the evening and a breakfast in the morning. Location is great, as there is a lot to do around St. Pete. We were able to walk to all the restaurants and night life attractions with ease. The stay also included parking in a lot where you can come and go as you please, always a difficult thing to find in St Petersburg.

love it!

Third time staying here over the past decade, and the recent trip was just as good as past ones. Sure, it's an old hotel, but that's the charm. Remodeled very nicely. It is clean, within walking distance from everything downtown, staff was very friendly and accomodating. Love the happy hour with complimentary beer and wine. The continental breakfast was nothing much, but for a very reasonable price they have a hot menu to order from. The best thing was the room rate - very cheap! I could've stayed elsewhere for twice as much, with half the experience. I will certainly come back, if I need a St. Pete overnight.

Great Place to Stay

Charming cozy little hotel. Very cute. Loads of extras. Happy hour (wine and pretzels) perfect relaxation. Lovely cafe area and front porch complete w. wicker chairs. Continental breakfast - cereal, bagels, juice, coffee/tea. yummy. Very convenient location. 6 minutes to Beach Dr. and downtown St. Petes. Charming choice. Parking lot next door. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I will stay there again. The room was small, but adequate. There was a sofa and desk in the room. Older style hotel, but clean. Huge rack of attraction brochures. Loved first floor location.

Downtown Secret

Everything is within walking distance, free parking in their lot, complimentary happy hour, smoking calm veranda, and continental breakfast. Staff [...] and [...] were awesome- full of information and aim to please! Great deal for the price, and enjoyed looking at all the historical touches. Bathrooms were small, and water temperature had to be adjusted, but the experience and price were well worth it! Will try to stay again next time we are doing something downtown and want to park the car for the night. Trolley for 25 cents that runs every 20 minutes on weekend nights will take you back from or wherever you would like to go. Great "staycation" away! Highly recommend!!!

I'll be back - Great B&B

We arrived late, tired and hungry - the staff was more than happy to answer our questions about the area, dining and provide direction for our early morning appointment - I truly felt welcomed and would make it a point to return!
