This was our second trip to the Pier House. We stayed the first week of December 2013.
Pier House is a very clean and comfortable facility, decorated in colorful old Florida style, with its own private beach and in a good location at the very end of Duval Street. Walking distance to many eateries, attractions and bars is easy. Our favorite is the docks area, at the north end of Front Street, nearly across from the hotel and away from the hustle and bustle of commercial Duval Street. We understand Pier House is recently under new ownership.
The downside is the cost and parking. Is it worth between$300 and $400 per night? We don't think so. And to have to pay $20 to park our own car is rediculous. Management will argue that most all hotels charge tor parking. Not so. We just a completed a stay at a beautiful oceanfront Marriott hotel on Florida's east in Hollywood Beach and the parking and a great breakfast buffet were both free.
The Chart Room bar is another downside at the Pier House. A nicely appointed, comfortable corner of the property for imbibing, and an alleged watering hole to some of the great early writers and characters, namely Tennessee Williams, Hemingway and Captain Tony is spoiled because smoking is allowed. This room is way too small, or any room for that matter, for smoking. It ruins the experience. We tried it, but had to leave.
Curiously, we found a classified advertisement for the Pier House in the local newspaper, the Citizen, during our stay, seeking help for every department of the hotel.
