Stayed here Dec 14 2014, excellent stay, the reception staff were excellent, we arrived approx 12noon and even though we were 3 hrs early the staff gave us 1 room out of the 2 booked. Concierge was very helpful advising us where to eat out of Ocean Drive. Ocean Drive is a hoot, lots of nice cars cruising, noisy bikes.... More

The Park Central is a really nice place to stay with two recent problems: they have taken away the bar (internal and external) with the furniture etc. Almost anything has vanished. Ops. They will not let you know on their website . During Art Basel Miami they have almost doubled the prices , like almost all the other locations in... More

The Park Central Hotel is perfectly located across the street from the beach, and right on the famed Ocean Drive. The location is perfect. The hotel is probably in need of a renovation, but remains with the feeling of Miami Beach and how it was several generations past. It was very clean, and the staff was wonderful.

Great location! Pool and small gym both on site. Miami Beach is across the street as well as other amenities. You can walk to shopping, restaurants and cafes. The staff is friendly and the location is perfect. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who usually like a 3-4 star with some character. A great Art Deco Hotel with tones... More

If you get a great deal on this hotel, I'd stay here. It's about to undergo a major renovation to bring the hotel back to its past glory, which should be something to behold. I love art deco architecture, and this hotel can be quite impressive once its done. The location is great, the rooms in their current condition are... More

Loved the atmosphere at the restaurant. My girlfriend and I had delicious mojitos while enjoying the great view of ocean drive. The wood fire pizza was outstanding as was the service. I definitely recommend it.

How do you give a worn out hotel that is badly in need of a renovation a good review? More challenging, they charged top dollar for three nights during Art Basel. $500 a night for a room? Are you kidding me? But, this was half of what the upscale hotels charged. Windows do not open, air conditioner is noisy. But... More

The bedroom carpet was very dirty and smelly, the hand wash basin in bathroom was badly cracked and the outside hall carpet was very dirty. Ok it is an old hotel, good spot, but dirty carpets. just not on.

The Park Central is an older property that smacks of long ago Hollywood movie sets. She is older and in need of a renovation ( it begins very soon) to be sure, but this landmark hotel is still classy. And it sits in the perfect spot on Ocean Drive to enjoy all the craziness of South Beach and yet still... More
