“Excellent Hotel for Staying in New York”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

This hotel was great it was located near the theatres, Central Park, Time Square and 5th Avenue. The rooms were clean and the hotel was beautiful. The staff was very pleasant and most of all the price was much more reasonable then any other hotel in the area and just as good. We would recommend this hotel and will definitely stay here again when returning to New York City.

Room Tip: The higher the room the better as there is street noise on the 7th floor but it was not bad.

I made a reservation through my points from my American Express Platinum card and the attention that I received was not the same, that if I had paid directly to the hotel . I got a room with defects and bad location very noise, close to the elevador.
Definitely, in the future, I will not repeat this hotel

Room Tip: not accept a room next to elevator

Park Central is in the perfect location...just blocks away from Central Park, Broadway, Rockefeller Center and Carnegie Hall. There are many excellent restaurants in the area.

The hotel is fine. They have recently updated all the rooms with new showers, bedding,etc. The bathrooms are very small but adequate for showering, etc. Internet was painfully slow. Bed was comfortable. Lobby bar was convenient.

Our Mother/Daughter weekend was enhanced by our perfect room with plenty of space for four grown ladies and a large bath (by NYC standards)...and after a day of walking and dinners out we slept like queens on the perfect beds and the sounds of the city were drowned out by the fan we controlled next to the window-blissful nights of sleep!!!

Room Tip: Don't worry about a view-though we had one on the north side of the hotel;))

My wife and I stayed there for 4 nights. Room was nice and a good size with a great bathroom. Only 5 minutes walk from Central Park and 10 minutes walk from Times Square. Lots of eating places in the immediate area although these were expensive. Take a stroll to 9th and 10th avenue for better options.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing 7th Avenue. You would get a better view. - may be more expensive?

Such a beautiful room, wonderful location! A little on the pricey side but the room is worth it. My only complaint with the room itself is that no matter how many lights/lamps we turned on the room was always very very dark. Everytime we tried to use the wifi it asked for a email address, upon entering our email address the website told us it wasn't valid. We tried multiple times and with multiple email addresses but to no avail. So we could never use the WIFI though our entire stay.

Beware they have a "facilities charge" on check out...when converting to AU dollars it was a hefty amount considering we already paid top dollar for our room, and the wifi (which is considered a "facility" never worked for us)

When we questioned this surprise charge on checkout the reception attendant looked us up and down and said "well you could have used the gym" this goes without saying but...that kind of comment is deplorable. We did complain to the manager, he said he would speak with her as "that comment in no way reflects the kind of service that Park Central strives to provide"

Still, that hurtful comment is now etched in my experience of New York and the Park Central. This was our first trip to New York and I'm so disappointed that even though Park Central is a beautiful hotel in a great location I would never stay there again.

I just stayed at the Park Central NYC solo last week for 5 days and it was great! Park Central is well located (and well maintained) so that you are not on top of "too loud" Broadway/Central Park/Shopping but in short safe walking distance to your 7th Avenue/56th Street home at the Park Central Hotel/NY. Subway N/R is at the end of the block for your adventure travel!









Room Tip: The Fitness Center is clean, spacious, well equipped and located on the 3rd floor.
