Just came back from South Beach. The Central Park hotel is conveniently located. Friendly staff. The building is old and needs renovations. Pool area is small with beach access across the street.Clean and would recommend because of location.

I unfortunately stayed at this hotel for one night. The room was not cleaned sufficiently & there were bed bugs. While it is a great location in south beach, it is not worth staying in a room of this quality.

Cannot beat the location in the middle of Ocean Beach just steps away from the beach. That being said it is a little hectic over there if you are OK with that. Great if looking for a party scene just cab rides from most major clubs and walking distance to Clevelander and Wet Willies. The pool at the hotel was... More

The hotel is just ok because you pay for location and that is it. Room was old (you can say "art deco" ;) and first day i stepped on a nail sticking out from the wicker chair in the room. The staff was nice and helpful. We left the car on valet parking and didn't even use for 3 days... More

Loved,loved,loved this place! The entire staff was helpful and friendly. The front desk gave a warm greeting at check in,which made me feel welcomed. The concierges were extremely helpful and eager to please. Housekeeping was on point and expedient. The Park Central will make for a great choice,while visiting Miami-South Beach. It's location can't be matched with it's proximity to... More

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
