This is our third stay at this hotel in under a year, I checked in early (8am) after a long cruise and the reception staff made us wait for a room until 2pm even though lots of people were checking out. My son was falling asleep on the sofa and had no energy to go out of the hotel. The... More

Dear joannehurley, Thank you for being our guest and returning to our property multiple times. It is great to hear that the Concierge team was so helpful yet the front desk was not. Check in time is 3pm and we try our very best to accommodate our guests with early check ins whenever possible. With check out at 11am, it... More

The only thing good about this hotel was the location. It needs updated. The bathroom is gross. The service at the desk was crappy. The only good service was the concierge! If its the only thing you can get is this I guess go for it.

Right in the middle of it all and walking distance from the shops, restaurants and beach. I was most impressed with the hotel staff. They were... More

I challenge anyone to find a better bang for your buck. Customer service alone was worth twice what the room cost a night. From the second doorman John open the door to the second the concierge called us at taxi for the airport, we every one of their associates greed us, made small talk, and even gave us tip for... More

Beautiful inside and out with service that could not be surpassed. The location was perfect for going to the beach, people watching, or just admiring the view from the rooftop lounge with a cool drink. Don't miss this gem!

I live locally so we did a "staycation" for 2 days as its called. Staff was nice ,curtious. friendly. The hotel itself is old from the "art deco" era so locals always have a idea that these were old folks homes 30 years ago and some south beach hotels have not been updated much since then . My wife and... More

We had planned on staying over three weeks so we were looking for a hotel that was moderately priced. The Park Central is an older property but we love the location and the service makes this hotel a five star in my rating.

Its a 1 or 2 start hotel that feels like a motel 6. Charging intercontinental prices. If you want stars, this is Not it. If you only care for a place to stay and dont care how it looks the location is good.
