The Park Central's staff is friendly, professional and helpful. We were always greeted and door open for us. The pool is nice right off the lobby and though the rooms are a bit dated, they are comfortable. You are a step away from everything South Beach has to offer. We really enjoyed our stay here.

This hotel really is a "step back in time" and fantastic example of the art deco times. To stay is comfortable but basic. The impending renovation will hopefully see it back in its prime. Great location right on the beach and to so many restaurants.

Better than a hostel but not much. Our room was old and dated, in need of a fresh coat of paint. Carpet was filthy and the bathroom was full of mold. South Beach is an experience best enjoyed as a day trip and not a week long experience. Expect to pay $70 for a breakfast.

Upon arrival, the staff immediately took charge of our bags, and the front desk gave us a wonderful room overlooking the street, which gave us a great view of the beach. Our room was clean and comfortable, and the staff was extremely helpful with every question we asked. We spent time on the sun deck that evening, enjoying the views,... More

I booked this place because it was on the Historic Landmark Registry as I LOVE OLD places! This hotel definitely has the 50's style appeal with it's marble floors and vintage bathroom tile. This hotel also offered a rooftop lounge area which was beautiful at night as you could see the city lights perfectly (see attached pictures). The staff was... More

This isn't a horrible place, it's just not particularly nice. It's in desperate need of renovation and just generally has a run down feel to it. There are few of the nice things that good hotels tend to have and every little thing comes with an added charge. They try to look more upscale but they fail. On the other... More

I would stay here again easily! Now, if you're looking for the most upscale, modern hotel this is not for you. The hotel purposely has an old-Miami, 50's vibe because it is a historical hotel. However, all of the showers and facilities are updated. The best part? It is RIGHT on Ocean Ave. Near 7th and Ocean. All of the... More

First the positives. Amazing location, right on the strip in South beach. Good price (considering its Miami) so definite value for money. This is a very old hotel but spacious rooms well decorated. This is where the positives all end. The check in experience would have been one of the worst I have ever had. We were there quite early... More

Excellent Front Desk Service. Rudy was very courteous and very polite. Continental breakfast next door was very good. The hotel is undergoing renovations, I did wish the pool was bigger, but the beach is right across the street...so it really didn't matter. The super clean rooms, the great location, and the professional and courtesy of Rudy made all worth my... More
