We just checked in yesterday and the person at the front desk who checked us in could not have been nicer. I had hoped for a cancellation to get a room with a balcony but no such luck. We are staying in room 609 which I said to my son whom I am traveling with that is good because no one to being running over our heads a night. Well I spoke too soon..although we didn't have anyone runing over our heads we have a family next to us whose children are very loud. There door slammed shut last night and shook our walls for about a hour straight from then coming in and out up and down the hallway. We woke this a.m. to two loud noises..the dumpster outside being emptied at 630 and then again at 7:00 with the little children yelling in the room next to us. The fact that this trip was for my son and I to relax is being hindered by the noise in the next room.
With that said let me give the positives. The room is beautiful with a partial view of the harbor. Very Very clean! Beds are very comfortable and pillows are like clouds. All of the staff that we have encountered so far have been very nice and helpful. I watched as my son and I sat at the bar last night as the bartender interacted with some of the other staff members and you get a since of homeyness from them. The bar that I am speaking of is on the second floor and is outdoors and overlooks the boardwalk and the ocean,,,the views are spectacular. On one side of the deck is the bar and tables and chairs in which you can sit and order food from the hotel restaurant. (my son and I got burgers..they were good). The other side of the deck all Adirondack chairs to just sit back and listen to the ocean and people watch.
I gave this 4 stars because the room was as expected and very clean and the staff from the front desk clerk to the bartender where very friendly and helpful.
I have been a secret shopper for years..going into stores, hotels and amusement parks and assessing them and giving feed back on what I encountered and I must say that the Park Place is very worthy of the four star rating!
