My husband and I try to visit Ocean City in September every year. We actually booked at another hotel but after reading an article in the Maryland Magazine, I cancelled our reservation and booked Park Place. No regrets for doing this. The entire staff was very friendly, our room was spacious, clean and very comfortable. Our room had a bay/pool view and I have never stayed at a hotel where they kept the pool area so clean. We love being so close to the Boardwalk Activity (which is much less crowded at this time of the year). Enjoyed that the outside bar was open in the evening and the "bonus outside area" to sit with a cup of coffee and read was much appreciated. This hotel is very close to some very good restaurants and I loved visiting the Park Place Jewelry Store on the lower level. Park Place is our "new" favorite Hotel in Ocean City.
