The location for the Park Central is great, right in the middle of the action and just across the street from the beach. The hotel gives you complimentary towels and a beach chair which is a nice touch (an umbrella costs extra). The roof deck is a relaxing oasis with a nice breeze and new age music playing, although the...

My sister and I stayed here for a week this May and loved it! The hotel has a great location in the Art Deco area of South Beach and has not one but two vintage cars parked outside!! Our room was wonderful and bright, very clean and plenty big enough for a week's stay. The bathroom was small but sufficient...

After really searching for the perfect location, and an affordable rate, I came across the Park Central Hotel. I was worried because this was the only hotel that got decent reviews, and I wasn't sure if they were trustworthy. When I arrived I realized I made the right decision! It was exactly what I was looking for! Clean, friendly, accomodating...perfect....

We came to Park Central again because we had enjoyed it so much 2 years ago in May 2006.We stayed for 2 weeks again this time. We found it to be a little tired and not as "on the ball" as before. They appear to be trying to cut costs by cutting back on the little luxuries they had before....

Here is the real low down on this hotel. They will act as if they are going to do you a favor because ultimately they probably messed up on your booking. They will try and put you in a room you didn't book until you say something, then they act as if they are going to give you an upgrade,...

Stayed one night on overnight trip to SoBe, taking my visiting nieces (ages 18 and 15). Decided on Park Central based on reviews, location and recommendation of TA Local Expert. Very glad I did! For the money, the Park Central is great! Location is one of the best features, directly on Ocean Drive with Lummus Park and Beach across the...

We really enjoyed our stay at the Park Central. The location is brilliant, right on South Beach. We had a car with us and parking was easy to arrange through the hotel. The restaurant and lobby are beautiful and the roof terrace is really lovely. The swimming pool is TINY but you're only over the road from the beach so...

I stayed here for 4 nights. The staff were absolutely great...extremely helpful. The location is excellent, close to all the SoBE attractions. Breakfast is taken next door but there's better value to be had along Ocean Drive. The roof terrace is wonderful with great views. The downside is purely the age and soundproofing of the property. The walls are very...

We stayed at The Park for only one night, and we loved the place! It is very well located, and has a unique charm that cannot be found in recent hotels. We arrived early around 11:00 am, and we were lucky to have a room ready for us. The staff was very friendly, and we have no complaints. We took...

“The ocean view rooms are quiet--unusual for South Beach. However, the windows do not open, so you won't be able to hear the ocean breeze.”
