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 went and I looked at the reviews almost every week and most of the reviews seem to be negative for instance I saw reviews saying that the room had roaches... More

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 Outdated is not even the word. The only thing I like about this hotel is how close it it to the beach. Def will not be coming back here. Def do not... More

I want to give a thanks to your staff while me and my companion stayed over the 2014 Labor Day Weekend. Both Dereck and Sergio especially, were always quick with a helping hand and both of the these men, what seemed to me, went out of their way to provide excellent service. Although I am sure they treat all your... More

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.
