My wife and I have now stayed at the Pier House twice.
The first stay was four nights in early to mid-January, 2011. We walked in and got a spacious room with a queen sized bed, a balcony with a view of the gulf, a lovely bathroom with a large shower with a rain showerhead, terrific housekeeping and room service, and they knocked 50 bucks off the usual price.
The gulfside bar was a blast, the dining deck a treat with great service, a fantastic view and food to compete with anything in town. The beach itself was cozy, sandy, and there was a raft in the clean and private swimming area. We're fro Cape Cod, and the water was like it is at home in August; perfect.
The spa...ahhhhh, what can I say, except that in my 66 years I cannot remember a better massage.
We are not wealthy, but no one ever made us feel uncomfortable or out of place for a second.
We returned this year for four more days, this time in late February, and everything I said above applies, with one glaring exception:
We reserved a room identical to the room we had had a year earlier, but when we arrived we discovered that we had been upgraded to a suite...at no additional charge.
Needless to say, we'll be back, and urge everyone who reads this to make sure they try the Pier House at least once in this lifetime; to fail to do so may result in an eternity of regret.
P.S. We drove both times and never used the car. Parking is plentiful.
P.P.S. My wife read this and reminded me to mention the magnificent tropical gardens on the hotel grounds. What a place.
