Despite being charged $20 /day facility fees, in-room WiFi was extremely unstable and signal poor. Our devices were unable to connect in several instances and most of the time, we had to be in common areas such as the hotel lobby and floor lobby to access the internet. We had raised the issue with front desk but no remedy was... More

We stayed at the Park Central hotel with our family of 4 including 2 kids, 16 and 14. Although the rooms were small we requested 2 queen beds and slept comfortably. The room was clean and well decorated. Park Central is a well priced 4+ star hotel centrally located and definitely worth consideration. The only negatives, the elevators are slow... More

We stayed here in august and think it is way over priced. The hotel is small but it feels like a train station. Packed with people and lines to use the single set of elevators. Bell staff is lazy and took a while to come get our stuff. The guy stood next to me waiting for a tip as if... More

This is an old NY landmark hotel that has changed hands a number of times and has been recently renovated. I found the staff pleasant and efficient, but the elevators leave a lot to be desired. At certain times there were long lines both in the lobby and on the room floors. Also noted the same at the front desk... More

My husband and I were very excited to stay at the Park Central for our anniversary weekend, and chose it for its proximity to Carnegie Hall, where we were planning to see a concert.

The location of the hotel is really great, but unfortunately that's the only thing that's great about this place. Check-in takes a long time. The room is noisy and small, the view is terrible and the water pressure reminds me of hotels in third-world countries. The room doesn't have a fridge or a coffee maker. The food at the bar... More

My wife, three kids and I stayed for a week in August 2014. Great location on 7th Avenue, the staff are friendly and the rooms are clean.

We stayed there 2 nights in May and the location is excellent. They don't have room service which was kind of surprising but in the US it seems that room service has become a luxury that only the very rich can afford although it is a necessity when someone has an accident or becomes sick during their stay. Anyway they... More

We started and ended our 3week travel at this hotel. Very well located with easy access to all the mayor tourist areas in Manhatten. Hotel gets very busy, thus sometimes a bit of a wait at the lifts and check in. Friendly helpful staff. Rooms are small but adequate. The food at the bar is delicious and well priced. For... More
