“Location is perfect”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

We visted this hotel for a weekend getaway. It was a perfect location for walking around downtown. Just about a block off the main strip which is full of great shops and restaurants. It is also a good base camp if you want to explore the wineries on either peninsula. The hotel was clean and service was good. It is a few blocks from the water so if you are looking to be right on the beach, look elsewhere. However, if you are looking for a great place to stay at a reasonable price- Park Place is your place!

3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

Stayed one night in the older tower of the hotel. Had a corner room on the eighth floor...great view, nicely updated, comfortable bed, very quiet. Restaurant food for dinner was good, with attentive waiter. Front desk staff helpful and pleasant. Perfect location for walking and exploring downtown Traverse City. Close to restaurants, shops, beach. However, a great feature of the hotel, the tenth floor bar, was not so great. The bar is actually quite small and a party/parties were gathered at almost all the tables. Was very noisy....too noisy to have a conversation without raising our voices. Also, when we came in the bartender totally ignored us. No greeting and "be with you in a minute". We even sat for a few minutes, thinking the ladies at the bar would be served and then he would speak to us. Nothing. We left. Don't go to the bar thinking to have a quiet drink and admire the gorgeous view of the city and Bay and get good service. This is why the rating is not better. Skip the bar and you will enjoy the stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a corner room.

Not only is the Park Place completely gorgeous with nicely updated rooms, but it is close to everything in Downtown Traverse City. Park your car and walk during your stay -- you will be close enough to great dining options, shopping, and plenty of bars serving great craft brews so that you get a real taste of this beautiful Northern Michigan town.

While you are there, be sure to check out the restaurant on the top floor. It offers beautiful views no matter the season!

Great location- walking distance to all of the downtown shops and restaurants. We stayed in the historic tower- good size room/comfortable bed. Bathroom could use some updates, but well worth the great location. Make sure you go up to the Beacon Lounge on the top floor for drinks and a great view of Traverse!

We had a great time staying here. Able to take in a movie at the State Theater and then relax at the bar at the top of the hotel. We met some very friendly people and had no problem with our room. There are great restaurants and shops, all within a short walk. The bed was comfortable and the room was very clean. The view is great from the higher floors. Parking is no hassle and the front desk people were polite, not overly friendly. Michael Moore is really helping out this city.

This was our second stay at the Park Place, and it was MUCH better than the first. We stayed in the tower on the 6th floor, and it seemed as though those rooms have recently been renovated because it was in phenomenal shape.

We enjoyed the views from the room, and enjoyed going down to Minerva's for late night happy hour.

We went up to the tower bar on the top floor, and were not impressed. They only had one bartender working and we sat down and waited over 10 minutes and were never acknowledged.

The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful however, and we would definitely stay in the tower portion of the hotel again!

This is a great place in a central location if you enjoy all the shopping and restaurants. We found all staff members to be friendly and helpful. We stayed there twice within 3 months and the remembered us the second time. Nothing but good things to say about this place!
