The Flagship Hotel is located midway down a 1,000 foot pier that extends into the Gulf of Mexico. Damage from the storm is evident in the panorama. A large piece of the building is missing from the (camera position) upper left narrow side. Also, both entrance ramps to the pier are damaged. One is completely collapsed and the other is partially down. Vehicles MAY have access to the pier on the partial side as there are two cars parked in the panorama, but these may have been abandoned there since Ike made landfall. Although the hotel website lists a mid-January opening date, this seems unlikely, as major structural work remains to be done.
