This is more of a business hotel where feeling comfortable is less important. The staff were a little chilly and the decor is spartan. If you pay 450$ for a room (without breakfast - that would be another 35$ per person) and had booked this with "internet included" then you don't expect having to sign up for an extra "package"...

Great location right across the street from Carnegie Hall and steps away from Central Park. Bus and train transportation are located just steps outside the hotel, this is great!!!!!!!! The staff was most accommodation and professional. We especially enjoyed the "Wine Hour" Wednesday evening, how welcomed Quimby Hightower made us feel. Our room was excellent, and I will recommend this... More

This hotel is perfectly located on 7th ave and 55th st, with a subway stop right on the corner that can get you to the theater district in 2 stops. Right next door is a Starbucks for coffee addicts and on several corners are deli to get breakfast including The famous Carnegie Deli. You can walk to blocks east and... More

I was hunting for many hotels before I booked Park Central in NYC. I'm a member of HH and SPG chains and normally book or Hilton chain or Sheraton chain. This hotel is not a member of any of them. However, it was very pleasant stay and we have had a positive experience. Park Central is a big hotel just... More

I had a great stay here. Good gym, friendly staff, close to Central Park, time square, theaters it really is a perfect location for tourists wanting to fit a lot in. Also the hotel manager Elizabeth Cacovic was outstanding. It's hard to find someone in the hospitality that is more than happy to help and ensure your stay is great,... More

Had an excellent time. Room was large, attractive and clean, although we had to request an extra chair as there was only seating for one person. The staff we encountered we professional, helpful and in the case of Quimby Hightower, most accommodating, helppful and entertaining. Had difficulty on two occasions when the cleaning staff forgot to replace the two drinking... More

The Park Central is located right across the street from Carnegie Hall and is steps from Central Park and Times Square. Clean and quiet, it was convenient for my quick business trip to the Columbus Circle area. Two issues that moved my rating scale from Very Good to Average: I stayed two nights but the maid service never showed, and... More

Pros: great location (walking distance to Times Square, Central Park, 5th Ave Apple Store, Gershwin Theater (for Wicked)) Fast Wifi, and it's free for guests. The speed really impressed me. We got on average 18Mbps down and 12 up. That's better than the average persons wifi at home. You can connect up to 5 devices for free. Cons: no vending... More

I found this hotel through Kayak, double checked it through Trip Advisor, and was completely satisfied with it. The lobby is clean and efficient, the rooms are surprisingly large for NYC, and the first-floor bar has just enough cool factor to be a great respite after a long day in the city. Within walking distance to Times Square, but just... More
