Crystal Pier Hotel

Pacific Beach in San Diego has a Pier that is also a Private hotel; Crystal Pier hotel is a series of chalets located on the edge of the pier and that area is restricted to tenants of the hotel and staff. The “center” pathway is open to the public from 8am to sunset, if you look closely behind the child’s helmet you’ll see a little open gate to the right.

I had to stand in the middle of the road to take this image, luckily a couple of cars came by which forced me to move; by the time I came back and setup my tripod the sun created this nice glow behind the clouds.

  5. It’s a great romantic getaway if you ever get a chance to stay there. I stayed way back in 1993 but now they have a minimum number of nights that you have to stay.

  8. A great picture but the hotel kind of looks very old & a bit scruffy?

  9. I guess it was worth risking your life ;). Just kidding,.. this is an incredible photo. I love how palm trees frame the gate. To tell you the truth I stood in the middle of a road more than once to take a shot that wasn’t nearly as good as this one :D. Well done!
