From the Pier Hotel web site:
"Originally built in 1921 and meticulously restored in the year 2001, The Pier Hotel is a welcome retreat. Step inside the elegantly appointed lobby with it's graceful archways and warm European decor, and step back to a day when master craftsmen paid strict attention to detail.
Relax in the lounge or on the verandah, as you read the daily paper, and enjoy the complimentary breakfast buffet. After a busy day, unwind at our free daily happy hour reception. Restore yourself by relaxing in an original antique claw-footed tub, before experiencing the renaissance of downtown St. Petersburg and the exciting nightlife it has to offer. At the end of the day, retreat to your room and settle into rich and luxurious linens.
