Hotel Week Returns To Resort Sunday

OCEAN CITY — Hotel prices have taken a dip and, fortunately, there is still time to take that end-of-the-season vacation, as Ocean City Hotel Week will run from Sunday, Aug. 21 through Sept. 1.

Recognizing the people driven economy, the Ocean City Hotel-Motel-Restaurant Association (OCHMRA) first launched Ocean City Hotel Week in 2010.

“This program is designed to mimic Restaurant Week. It will deliver the great deals and the value that consumers have grown to expect,” OCHMRA Executive Director Susan Jones said.

The special promotion will feature free night stays and beach bargains.

Approximately 25 hotels are participating by offering one of the following — 15% off three-night stays, 20% off four-night stays, 25% off five-night stays, three-night stay receives fourth night free or four-night stay receives fifth night free.

Along with great deals on accommodations, Ocean City is offering a number of free activities. A Radio Disney concert will be held on Aug. 21 featuring The Ready Set. This concert is part of the Sizzlin’ Summer of Stars and takes place on North Division Street from 6-8 p.m.

Both Sunday, Aug. 21 and 28, the fun continues at Northside Park located on 127th Street on the bay with Sundaes in the Park beginning at 6 p.m. The entertainment is free and for a nominal fee ice cream sundaes may be purchased.

Free movies on the beach will be held on Aug. 24 featuring "Toy Story 3" at the Carousel Resort Hotel located on 118th Street and on Aug. 25 featuring "Oceans" at the Princess Royale Family Resort and Condominiums on 91st Street.

The Lifesaving Station Museum offers free programs daily, excluding Sundays, beginning at 10 a.m.
