OCEAN CITY — The Beach Plaza Hotel, located oceanfront at 13th Street on the Ocean City boardwalk, has now permanently shut its doors.

"Through our over 50 years operating on the Boardwalk, we've loved getting to know all our guests who stayed with us year after year," said Steve Phillips, son of founders Brice and Shirley Phillips. "The Beach Plaza Hotel was a wonderful home base for thousands of beach vacations, weekend getaways, wedding and anniversary celebrations and reunions, and we're so grateful to have been a part of these unforgettable memories in Ocean City."

Since opening in 1967, the hotel had employed hundreds of loyal staff members that the family credits for creating the welcoming, friendly environment that kept guests coming back again and again.

Existing reservations for 2021 have been canceled and refunds are being issued now - please reach out to the Beach Plaza Hotel at with any questions or concerns.

The Phillips family's original Ocean City restaurant location, Phillips Crab House, is gearing up for the 2021 season, with tentative plans to reopen for weekends starting in late Spring.
