...Having spent the last 7-years at The Park Central on 640 Ocean Drive in South Beach MIAMI Florida as repeat guest, I feel as though I can speak with some measure of authority, where this particular review is concerned. Although too numerous to mention, I will attempt to highlight a few details in order that this review be put into... More

Old and musty rooms. We stayed here during our Miami - Key west trip. The only plus point of this hotel is its location. You could walk to the beach from this hotel in a couple of minutes.Beware, they hold a deposit of $28 for the room keys and unfortunately they don't remind you to hand over the keys to... More

i have previously reviewed this hotel, stayed December 2014, since I returned home I discovered my credit card had been cloned , the only place I used the card in question was paying for valet parking at this hotel. I was sat in a restaurant back home in the UK when my bank called and asked if I was still... More

I stayed here for two nights after returning from a cruise. The pros: I got a good rate through a third-party website, the staff was wonderful, it's right on Ocean and it's a 2 minute walk to the beach. The cons: The hallways (other than the lobby) and dark and dank, my entire floor reeked of some weird smell (like... More

The Park Central is a historic hotel and has a location that can't be beat. Our room was comfortable and accommodating although a bit tired looking. Overall the hotel could use some refurbishing but the price is excellent especially for the location. The beach was directly across the street. We also enjoyed a delicious breakfast on the outdoor patio. All... More

We were unfortunate to stay here just before it shut down for renovation. Reception staff were warm and friendly, but the hotel is run down and a big mess. As we entered our room after a rickety elevator ride we were welcomed by a damp cigarette stinking carpet.. Room was ok.. Bathroom was clean. No one answered the room service/... More

This hotel is a beauty on the outside with probably a lot of history, but in the inside is just sad...Really old rooms, with small windows, extremely uncomfortable bed, and thin walls; If someone flush the toilet, you gonna hear about it, if someone decide to take a shower in the middle of the night...damn sure you will notice it....

My bf and I stayed at the Park Central during the first week of March. We honestly loved. It's not the Ritz Carlton, but I loved the fact that it was older because it felt very historic. The rooms had this comfortable feel to them like you were home. There are pictures through the halls of south beach in the... More

I have been staying at this hotel regularly for the past 30 years......but not in the last 5-10 years..... It is OK -- but dated-- great location on Ocean Drive across from the beach and something very unusual in this area of Ocean Drive -- a swimming pool. It is great for a plunge after getting all salty in the... More
