OC: Residence Inn set for fall opening

Despite delays and disputes that have clouded the completion of a 150-room Marriott Residence Inn & Suites on 61st Street bayside, the project should wind down this fall.
The eight-story hotel, located on a four-acre parcel that formerly housed the Ocean City Health and Racquet Club, is being developed by the Inns of Ocean City LLC.
Rich Palmer, a managing member of the hotel corporation, said the project hit a snag last fall when problems arose with the original general contractor, Berlin-based general Sens Mechanical Inc.
In late November 2016 contractor Whiting-Turner was selected to shuttle the project to fruition. Palmer credited the bonding company with taking on the responsibilities of general contactor and selecting Whiting-Turner to complete the remaining construction.

The place is ugly as hell and obstructs the scenery.

Over built for the site. OC wanted the tax revenue... didn't care about preserving the entrance to an "All American City".

That's OC in general anymore.

See, guaranteed revenue from a major name in the hospitality industry. Major name that will be in town for many years to come...as those mom/pops we dearly remember now only via Bunkman, vanish and Major names start dotting our 10 mile Island.

With the Geriatric City Fail in charge.....Ocean City sponsored by (insert name here) will eventually become a reality! Oh and its almost time AGAIN to lock down the town soft drink of Ocean City...hmmm....

Long construction, ugly building. I can't imagine that walk to the beach...

It's only a half-mile walk to the beach. The walk back (with the tired, whining, sand covered kids) will be such a joy !

This whole project has been a disaster. They were supposed to be open for last summer, now they didn't make it for this summer. The worst looking thing you could ever build there. I miss the OC Health Club. Too bad they ran that into the ground.
