The best thing about this hotel is that it is in a great location if you want to be on Ocean Drive. It is right across the street from the beach. I feel like they really tried with this hotel - you can see a lot of personal touches like robes in the bathroom, newer TVs, and they are renovating...

I stayed at the Park Central for 14 nights with my boyfriend and have to agree with the previous review, we were in some ways disappointed. The hotel is listed as an historic building so i appreciate not much rennovation can be done, but it could do with a touch of redecorating. Our room was nice, spacious and down the...

I spent a lot of time on the internet researching a good, central but not overly expensive hotel to stay for four days over Christmas with my husband. Having stayed in the Park Central, I'm now not really sure what to say about it. It appeared on the face of it, and on the internet, good value for Miami. It...

Stayed here for 4 nights to end our 2 weeks exploring the keys. Was very impressed, room was spacious, bed very comfy, huge TV, robes, free newspapers, free wifi. Loved all the old black and white photos all over the hotel. Used the $15 self parking round the corner, they give you a pass to get in and out, then...

I thought the hotel was perfect. A bit dated, but how long do you actually stay in the hotel for? Perfect location for lincoln road shopping and at the end of the strip so you've got every restaurant you could ever want within steps of the door! It can get a bit annoying as everyone is asking you to dine...

When we went to check in the best they could do was on the same floor 5 rooms apart, great start! Rooms were a decent size, beds were comfortable,with crisp,clean sheets, flat screen tv...

We stayed from June 8-13th and we were extremely happy with our experience. This was my fourth visit to South Beach and the second time I stayed at the Park Central. I stayed there about five years ago and I am so happy that we decided to stay again. Firstly, the service was amazing. They bent over backwards to make...

We just returned from Miami Beach for a short weekend trip to celebrate our anniversary and had a great time. The Park Central is an Art Deco style hotel built in 1937 and is very well kept. You feel a sense of Nostalgia as you stay there. The folks at the hotel were very kind and helpful. The hotel is...

We really enjoyed our stay at the Park Central Hotel. Rooms are quite dated but very comfortable, with a King bed and a flat screen wall mounted TV. We had a sea front corner room which had views of the sea and Ocean drive and we were very happy indeed with the room. One of the few hotels with a...
