The Park Central
Ranked #136 of 212 Hotels in Miami Beach
Reviewed 14 February 2015

Great location at Lummus Park but the hotel is a bit long-in-the-tooth, dark and unattractive. Staff was friendly and helpful (the electronic key was maddening) and the room was clean, but very weak water pressure and thin walls. Overpriced even for this trendy area.

Room Tip: Rooms in the front are noisier as the sidewalk restaurant is very active.

We stayed in the building next to the main building, in this building the apartments were converted into hotel rooms. Very spacious, old school deco, very polite and accommodating staff. Prime location because it's across the street from the beach but also away from the annoying Resturant workers that don't let you walk on the strip in peace.

Good price, overall a good experience for the price paid

This hotel has a great facade and really does fit the Art Deco vibe of south beach. The location is really amazing, right on ocean drive and on the beach, walking distance to just about everything on south beach.

The rooms are large, and the bathroom was also quite nice for a 1930's era hotel. The window was small and placed in the corner of the room which is certainly a design flaw (why wouldn't you maximise the view of the beach? There's one lift, it's a bit noisy and being Miami, there are guests coming and going all through the night and early morning.

The lobby is a bit dull, as is the pool area, but I'm told they're undergoing a renovation soon. Concierge was also a bit lifeless. The hotel does whatever they need to in order to get by, but really aren't making any effort to win new business and they simply rely on the excellent location. If you can get a good rate then stay here, but with a little extra expense you could probably stay somewhere with a bit of life to it!

A friend and I recently stayed at this hotel, and it was disgusting. In particular, the bathroom had black mold everywhere! The room was small outdated, but acceptable for just using it as a crash pad. The refrigerator was locked, and required another key to open. This is a bit of an annoyance.

The location was absolutely amazing, and made walking to Mangos Bar very easy.

We spent new year at this wonderful art deco hotel in Miami, and enjoyed our stay very much! It was cozy, old but clean, a bit worn out but lovely hotel. It had historic feelings with all the old pictures on the wall, and we really enjoyed this. Personnel was exceptionally good and friendly!

Room Tip: partial sea view was actually excellent sea view!
