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

This hotel is in a great location. The check in was very easy. Even though we were given keys to the room that was already occupied they fixed the problem very fast. The rooms and decor are somewhat outdated but it didn't bother us. Beach was visible from our room. There is good stores and shopping within walking distance. Bed... More

An average hotel, which when we arrived , was told that it was going to a renovation. The location is the selling part of this hotel, close to everything and the beach. The website mentioned beds on the beach reserved, however when asked was told that this was not the case. Rooms are furnished to the Art deco era, with... More

I got what I expected for under $200/night in this great location== Fantastic spot across from the beach, reasonably comfortable room, helpful staff, free wifi, small pool, rooftop deck. if you dont mind these cons:no bar, dowdy hallways, windows that don't open, no fridge, spotty cable service and NO coffeemakers in room then it is a fine hotel if you...

I loved the historical and classic art deco ambience of the Park Central--which is located in the heart of South Beach. The beach is across the street as well as Lummus Park. The staff were professional, friendly and helpful. I had an ocean view room on the 4th floor and it was quiet...no street noise. The room was furnished with... More

Hotel was clean. Nice restaurant and bar next door. It is in a great location and the check in and out process was very easy. The rooms and decor are VERY Art Deco to the point of almost outdated. Look at the pictures and you will know what to expect. I understand there may be a remodel in the future.... More

Bit overpriced according to the fact they are short before the reconstruction! No one informed us they are going to have reconstruction so shortly! Mini bar/ fridge was locked so I called the concierge to bring us the key (as I had some baby food to refrigerate). They never showed up even if they promised! So I went to the... More

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.

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,... More

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... More
