There was a bit of a mix-up when I checked in, as somehow my reservation had been marked as a no-show although I arrived in the early afternoon on the scheduled check-in day. However, all was eventually resolved; I would just suggest you bring a print-out of your reservation confirmation with you when checking in. If you are looking for... More

I am returning to this place about once a year since quite a while, and I have to say I really love it for its special flair, the old elevator, the atmosphere in the lounge, great food, a really nice concierge - the list is quite long. Just the front desk staff tends to be, let's say, "stressed" sometimes, which... More

This is a historical hotel, so while everything is 80 years old I expected it to be updated. The staff is pretty much non attentive, except for the concierge, and they really need to be much more attentive to the guests. Air conditioning system is so loud we could hardly sleep, and everything else in the room and in the... More

Staid at this hotel for a business situation, but had to leave due to the fact that my husband and I both suffer from severe asthma and the oceanfront location was making him so sick we had to take him home. I will say that the staff was amazingly helpful in every way, from beginning to end. They did not... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Park Central, the location was fantastic and it had a super pool. I would stay here again even though the rooms were very old because the location makes up for it. The pool looks out onto the foot traffic and there is alot to see, it also looks out onto the ocean which is... More

first off let me start by saying that I was not fortunate enough to see the reviews before I paid for the room after the fact that I paid.

I had an unexpected delay in Miami on the way to NY and found this on booking.com for a good price. The staff were very welcoming and the room was on the top floor right near their huge balcony. I was a little worried about the noise from people enjoying the balcony but it was pretty good. The views from... More

Everything in the hotel was just ok until I walked into the bathroom only to see a cockroach walking around. Disgusting! Also, the rooms need an upgrade ASAP. Outdated is not even the word.
