World's Best Beach Hotels 2015

The Pier House

Travel+Leisure readers ranked the best hotels around the globe for sea-breeze bliss—whether they sit on powdery white sand, rocky bluffs, or bustling waterfronts.

No. 11: The Pier House Resort & Spa, Key West

10 of 21

Sitting on the edge of Key West’s Old Town, this 142-room hotel with a private beach strikes a balance between sandy bliss and traditional Key West quirkiness—for instance, you can easily walk to Mallory Square for the nightly sunset ritual. Rooms come in sunny colors, accented with local art, and have views of bougainvillea, the dock, or the Gulf of Mexico. Keeping with the hotel’s mellow ambience, readers declared it a solid value, too. You can embrace its simple pleasures by partaking of happy hour at the hotel’s legendary Chart Room Bar, which still prides itself on offering free popcorn and hot dogs, and refusing to make touristy “blender” drinks.
