“Great location and pool was killer! ”
Reviewed 27 April 2014 via mobile

Overall great trip up to TC hotel location was perfect. Beds were super soft and rooms were clean. Kids loved the pool although the only negative were some ants around the locker room and bench area near the pool. Reasonable price. Cool old hotel. Fairly quiet although my kids were the ones making most of the noise! Staff very friendly and keurig in the room was nice touch.

Stayed April 2014, travelled with family

We just returned from an excellent weekend at the Park Place in Traverse City. The front desk staff was excellent, helpful and friendly. Given our choice of rooms, we looked at one on the 8th floor which would have been very nice, except that they put furniture in front of the windows, so you didn't have access to the view - which was stunning. We opted for a 4th floor room with a balcony so that we could enjoy the sights of downtown and the bay. We had a wonderful dinner in the main dinning room after our arrival the Whitefish Pate and the Duck we both surprising and delicious. I highly recommend them.
I do not understand why they insist on closing the pool area at 10:00 at night. With children playing in there all day, we would have like to have had a quiet dip in the hot-tub and pool at the end our long day exploring, but they close. Perhaps they could extend the hours for adults.
My only other complaint was with the bar on the top floor. It was so tiny that we couldn't spend our last evening up there as we had planned, but instead had to got the bar on the first floor. I had been looking forward to spending our last evening sipping a cocktail and enjoying the view of Traverse Bay, but there was no room at all.

I've been wanting to stay here for 54 years - many family trips and pleasure trips and finally got the chance. I loved the ambiance, 7th floor room was very comfortable, nice view. Didn't go to any of the restaurants in the hotel, however.

Room Tip: It seems like any room would be good, be sure to ask for bay view if that's important to you.

Fair rooms, tiny dated bathrooms and poor service. Front desk was mostly abandoned requiring a long wait for service. Restaurant warned us they could not provide breakfast since they had a 'large group', even though we only saw one other couple being served. So we had to return to room, put on our winter gear, dust the snow and ice off our car and drive to find another restaurant. Hardly a full service hotel. Below average, we would have been better off staying at a limited service hotel along the highway and saving the $.

Will not return.

Room Tip: we did not see any good rooms

While the hotel apologizes for the small wait in the restaurant, the guests were offered a table and coffee until they could be served. The hotel always strives to provide the best service possible and will continue to try its best to serve all guests in a timely fashion.

You can't beat the location of this hotel. Right in downtown and you can walk to anything. When I travel to TC this is the only place I stay. Staff is excellent. The hotel is older and you couldn't pay me to get in that elevator so we stay in a newer section of the hotel where I'm not terrifed of the old elevator. There is a bar on the top which is extremely cool.

Though this historic hotel is conveniently located in downtown Traverse City, the property needs a good scrubbing! My daughter and I spent one night. The TV cable did not work. The staff was kind enough to try and help, without success; so they opened the joining room until 11 p.m. We then switched rooms so we could watch TV past eleven p.m! This was a huge dissapointment for me, since I was really looking forward to bed and TV! I understand that this is an old property, with many updates to be made. However, old can be clean...and there was dirt in every corner! The lobby floors were under renovation, so I understand the dust and dirt from that. However, it seemed that no matter where I looked, there was dirt stairing back at me. The pool area was extremely disappointing!!! Dirty floors, paint chipping in hot tub, cold atmosphere, cramped locker room, dirt floating in pool. We didn't stay long! The hotel restaurant, Minerva's, was interesting too. Wait staff was nice, but it was clear they could all use a class on proper serving etiquette! Restaurant decor is in major need of updating. Table linens would be nice for a "classy" hotel restaurant. Dinner and breakfast fare was marginal for the price. The gentleman at front desk was very nice, and tried to accommodate my several requests for fixing TV. Art the maintenance man was very nice too. When visiting Traverse City, I will most likely not stay at The Park Place again since it didn't leave me with a very good impression.

Room Tip: Room #808 is the most requested room since it's on the 8th floor and a corner room. The view was...
