"On behalf of the Planning Committee for the Cooper-Pendergrass 2012 Family Reunion, as well as the grateful family, I would like to acknowledge the extraordinary efforts of the Howard Johnson staff to make our reunion, held from July 6th through 8th one of the best our family has experienced. To that end, Pat Ambler-Perry, Group Sales Manager, went above and beyond our expectation. She managed room reservations both professionally and gracefully and made us feel her personal touch, even during a busy season. JOB WELL DONE! Mary Susan Jones managed to be everywhere she was needed, at any time, and with a helpful idea in addition. She took a picture of our logo from a t-shirt, then had it enlarged and fabricated into a banner and displayed it in the Foyer to direct family members to our meeting place. We could not have imagined a better and more helpful staff member. No matter what the request or problem was, she was there to solve it. We also have to thank her staff members, Mannon, Ger, Megan, and Janice, by name. Mannon and Ger moved tables and chairs without complaint, and even more remarkably, hauled pounds and pounds of ice from one of your properties to another -- a chore made necessary, and more difficult, by the demands of 100+ people in an unforeseen heat wave. Megan and Janice were cheerful hostesses. The staff assured us that Mary never stops smiling, and they obviously follow her example. When Rick Meehan, Ocean City Mayor, welcomed our family, I had no idea that our 2012 Reunion would be as meaningful, fun and memorable as it was. We thank both you, and a gracious host city, for an unforgettable event. "

"Thank You, Thank You, Thank You for a wonderful, beautiful experience at the Howard Johnson Oceanfront Plaza Hotel ! The rooms were lovely, the views great, but yours and Pat's kindness and helpfulness were amazing --- totally above beyond the call of duty ... bar none. (I wish all the hotels were 1/2 as wonderful as yours !) From the moment we stepped off the bus and were greeted at the door, to Matt working his butt off taking our mountains of luggage to our rooms, to the party room accommodations, to the miracle of the delicious breakfasts, to your kind and warm demeanor, to your lovely note, to the mints as we left ... we couldn't have asked for better experience. I felt as if we were old friends staying in your home ! Thank you again for everything ... and please forward this along to Pat as well. Also, please send me the name of your "supervisor." Whomever it is has to know how much we appreciated and loved you and your hotel ... Take Care and God Bless, "

"Pat, Thank You and the Boardwalk Hotel Group for a wonderful stay at the Oceanfront Plaza Hotel. The staff there could not have been more helpful or friendly. Our inspector's accomplished their mandatory training requirements for license renewal on Saturday and enjoyed the hospitality greatly. On a personal note, my wife and I really enjoyed our room with the spectacular view of the Atlantic Ocean and Boardwalk. Things could not have gone better. The snow on Sunday will give us something to talk about in the future. Once again, on behalf of Maryland Plumbing and Mechanical Inspectors Association Thank You"
