“Nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2013

great position near to subway and grand central a few minutes walk.
Room was compact but very clean, bed was nice and comfortable.
Staff were very helpful and happy.

Tip:
Take advantage of the $20 free gift card when buying $100 gift card when in the bar/restaurant,
you can use them the same day as you bought them, easy way of saving money, also ask about half price bottle of wine day!

This is my 5th stay here and it just keeps getting better. The location couldn't be better - so central yet so quiet and peaceful, and only steps away from the subway on East 28th Street. The staff are truly an asset to the hotel - so friendly, helpful, professional and efficient - I honestly feel part of the family as everyone remembers I've visited before. I love the continental breakfast which is great value and the setting of the restaurant with a street side cafe-terrace where I can watch the world go by is unique in such a busy city (and they have Jazz evenings on weekends). The rooms have all the amenities you'd need for a holiday or business trip - the free wifi is a bonus! I accidentally clicked 'excellent' for swimming pool - there is no pool - but who needs one in such a vibrant city!

Thank you for the awesome review! You are right, no pool but a roof top bar opening this spring. I’m looking forward to your feedback once it opens as well as on the room refurbishment progress. I think you will be very pleasantly surprised. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me directly if I can be of any assistance on your next planned visit.

We had a great stay at Park South Hotel - it's perfect situated... 1 minute walt to the subway, 10 minutes walk to Grand Central Terminal. The staff at the reception is very friendly and helpful with all kind of requests. The restaurant Black Duck serves a really nice breakfast and great dinner.

I've stayed here before. The Park South is on E 28th, near the subway and walking distance to Union Square, to the Flatiron district and event to Penn Station. It includes free WiFi and breakfast. Right below are 10 or so Indian restaurants as well as other bars and food places. Rooms are comfortable.Very good service.

We booked for Thanksgiving eve, arriving at 11:30am. Our room was ready, so we were able to easily check in and have lunch before our Wednesday matinee. As always, the service was impeccable as well as friendly, and with mini-candy bars, breakfast included, and a subway stop 1/2 block away, we consider the Park South our go-to place when we travel to NYC. Oh, and we got a great rate through hotels.com.

I loved everything about this hotel. The location is really good with the subway only a short walk away. The room was small but it's NYC and you don't expect a massive room. The breakfast had plenty of options and all of them will fill you up for your day's sightseeing etc.

The staff were excellent and I'd definitely go back again

Hotel is located in the lower east end of Murray Hill. There are many good restaurants in the area and your subway stop is just up the street on 28th. Walkable to ESB, Flatiron Bldg., Madison Sq. Park and so much more. Gracious and friendly staff. Really enjoyed the Friday night jazz. Drinks were perfectly made and the bartender was great to chat with, along with others at the bar. Since it was later in the evening, I only tried the calamari and it was excellent. Our room was particularly small with minimal storage. Also needed a bit of paint and a new rug. It was difficult to maneuver around the room with two adults. Just a bit tight. Bathroom was clean but the drains in the sink and tub drained very slow. I now know what to ask for.
