Why We Love It

  • A prime location on Key West: propped up on piers over the water with a private beach
  • At the end of lively Duval Street, peacefully removed -- but not too far from nightlife
  • Spread over several buildings, each room offers a different but 4-star experience; Upgrading to an ocean facing room is recommended
  • A former haunt of Truman Capote; an early venue for Jimmy Buffett

"The envy of every hotel on the island” -- Frommer’s

The closest the continental U.S. gets to the tropics, Key West has all the warm breeze of the Caribbean without the far commute. In an ideal spot on the island’s northwest corner, the Pier House Resort boasts a private beach on one side, and Duval Street nightlife on the other. Opened in the 1960s by a friend of Truman Capote, the resort has expanded and upgraded over the decades, filling several waterfront buildings with rooms that all have individual touches. Some have four-poster beds and rainfall showers or sitting areas and private balconies. Some have views of the harbor, some look out at the beach.

The private piece of sand opens to a roped-off rectangle of sea for splashing about. Elsewhere, there’s an outdoor pool, a café on a patio over the water, and an al fresco bar that hosted some of Jimmy Buffett’s first performances. A full-service spa offers milk-and-honey body wraps, lava stone therapy, and paraffin wax skin treatments.

With an address of 1 Duval Street, the resort is quite literally the start of Key West’s well-known nightlife scene. As the street heads south, it passes many top bars and restaurants. The resort also neighbors Mallory Square, which has more restaurants and shops as well as an aquarium. Harry S. Truman’s Little White House is only a few blocks away, a breezy retreat that served as the winter White House in the 1940s and ‘50s.

From the press:
  • “Pier House is an ideal choice. Its location -- at the foot of Duval Street and just steps from Mallory Docks -- is the envy of every hotel on the island” -- Frommer’s
  • “The courtyard is riotous with tall coconut palms and hibiscus blossoms, and rooms are cozy and colorful” -- Fodor’s
