The Pier Hotel is very proud to have won the the prestigious "Historical Preservation of the Year" award given by the St. Petersburg Historical Preservation Society for the best historical restoration/rehabilitation in the city. This award was received for the extensive and complete renovation that the hotel underwent in 2001, to bring the hotel back to the splendor of it's glory years. The Pier Hotel is back and better than ever! Take a look at our history for in depth look at how the hotel has changed over the years. Never one to rest on our laurels, The Pier Hotel has made continual updates and restoration a priority.
The Pier Hotel is a local Historic Landmark in St. Petersburg. It is unique in the downtown area, in that it is a fine example of Neoclassical Revival architecture, which is a rare architectural design in St. Petersburg. For more information on the unique architectural design and historical significance of The Pier Hotel, please visit the City's Urban Design and Historic Preservation Division, Local Historic Landmarks site.
The Pier Hotel was awarded the AAA Three Diamond Award for 10 straight years, from it's grand reopening in 2001 through 2010. The Three Diamond Award is the highest award a hotel can receive without a full service restaurant on-site. While we do not have a full service restaurant, we do offer a complimentary, sumptuous "Continental-Plus" breakfast buffet every morning, as well as a "Concierge Welcome" reception every evening with complimentary beer, wine and snacks (limit 2 drinks per adult guest).
The Pier Hotel has also received the "Superior Small Lodging" designation awarded to smaller hotels and bed & breakfasts that provide superior quality of service. We are honored to have received this distinction every year since the hotel's re-opening in 2001.
