The 70,627 square foot renovation project added a half floor to the 6th level, an entire floor for the 7th level, a new penthouse for elevator service and mechanical rooms and expanded the pool deck with a second pool and renovated the existing pool for the existing hotel.
“We have a strong relationship with Park Place Hotel’s leadership team,” said Dwight Miller, president, Gillis Gilkerson. “This renovation was unique in that we added a full story and a half to an existing 17 year old hotel. We are thrilled to hear that the 7th floor rooms are in high demand and that the expansion has created even more buzz about the highly rated hotel.”
Other additions include new pools, pool deck with glass railings, gym, laundry room and utility tower. Renovations converted two sets of rooms on each floor into suites equipped with full kitchens and separate bedrooms. The old pool was transformed into a spa pool and balconies were added to the sixth & seventh floors.
“Gillis Gilkerson has done a beautiful job. This renovation has changed the skyline of Ocean City,” said Bill Douglas, hotel representative. “Park Place Hotel has literally risen out of the sand and people can see our building stand out among all the others. Dwight Miller is very easy to work with and very accessible and if there is ever a superintendent you would want on a job, it is Gillis Gilkerson’s Bill Schiavo.”
