When I arrived at the Park Place I was pleased to find it situated right in the heart of downtown Traverse City, within EASY walking distance of many stores and eateries. This is by far this properties biggest amenity. Because the property is quite average, and I found the staff only marginally friendly.
Check-in was all business. No extra information about the hotel, amenities or room options. I was put in a room in the long section of the hotel, not the tower that is pictured which is one of the tallest structures in town (handy for finding your way back!). The room was dated but clean. The sleeping area was average-sized but the bathroom was minuscule. I mean it barely had room for the door to open. It was so small they put an extra sink in the closet across the hall. There was a small balcony on the room with a view of the parking lot. Nothing special, but I appreciated the fresh air. TV was a small 32". The wireless is free but intermittent. I believe it has limited capacity.
I was very disappointed when I called for a late checkout because my business appointment (which was a booked event in the hotel!) was going a little past checkout (11:00AM). I was treated roughly by the front desk, then housekeeping banged on the door twice until I explained to the head of housekeeping that I had reluctant permission for a late checkout. She hadn't heard from my friend at the front desk. She was apologetic and friendly, but the damage was done.
The property is definitely in a prime location, and if this is your major concern Park Place is clean and efficient, just don't expect extra attention or amenities. If you have some flexibility, I would definitely shop around and weigh your options.
