Just returned from a really enjoyable stay at the Park Central. "Central" is the word... the location between 6th and 7th street was brilliant. The room was spotless and was art deco heaven. The staff were helpful when needed and not at all intrusive on your holiday. We got a daily complimentary continental breakfast at the restaurant next door which...

Stayed at the Park Central for 2 nights and all I can say is this place is great, we arrived a little early to check in (which is 3pm) and sat down in the cool lobby area, when we were given a room we were pleasantly surprised to find we had been upgraded to an ocean view room, the room...

The hotel is on Ocean between 6th and 7th, making it a great location close to the action, far enough from the noise. Check in was smooth, very nice front desk staff and a complimentary upgrade to a sea view room on the top floor. The view was magnificient. The room itself fells a bit dated, but was clean with...

We stayed here for a week, as a relaxing break after a mad week in Orlando. Our stay did not start well- on our arrival we were told we had a kingsize bed, instead of twin beds- the manager told us Virgin (who we'd booked with) had requested a 'standard room' for us, which meant a kingsize bed (I have...

We stayed at the P. Central for 5 days in July before going on a Caribbean Cruise. It was our second visit in Miami, and having stayed at 2 different hotels on Collins last October, we decided to pick one on Ocean Drive with an Ocean View room this time. When we arrived they could not find my booking at...

We had a 3 night stay at Park Central during our 2 week holiday around South Florida and I have gotta say we loved this hotel. We had a room on 6th floor and did not have any problems with noise either from our neighbours or from outside. We had a partial sea view, the room was really nice and...

Several girlfriends and I spent Labor Day at the Park Central. The hotel is perfectly located for loitering out of bed and onto the beach in the morning. The restaurant attached to the hotel is great - the tuna tartare a must! They also set us up with a spa/jet skiing experience which was okay. The rooms are not super-fancy,...

My wife and I just returned from staying 3 nights at The Park Central. I read the reviews and was a little skeptical. The price was certainly right though. I booked directly through their website and saved some money. I booked an Ocean View room ended up with 509. It was nice. Had all the amenities the other reviews claimed...

Booked the hotel through Travelocity after a lot of searching for a reasonable priced hotel - not an easy find for SoBe. The good thing about the hotel is that you do not have to pay resort fees and included in your price are free towels and free beach chairs - umbrellas you can rent at $12 a day. This...

My husband and I stayed here for one night before a cruise. It was at the end of the "strip" but was perfect for walking around and running on the sidewalk next to the beach. The front desk was very kind and helpful. The bed was soooo comfy and we had a fantastic corner room which seemed to be the...

“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.”
