My girlfriend and I were so fortunate to come across this gem of a hotel. The price, location, service, and art deco character were all exceptional. The pool is lovely and the gym is excellent for a small hotel. I was most impressed with the bellboy and concierge staff considering the affordable price point. Will look forward to returning again soon.

Excellent location on Ocean Drive across from the ocean andl close to restaurant and bar activity. Hotel staff very friendly and polite. Rooms clean and mine had a walk in closet area to store clothes and suitcase. Beds comfortable. Pool area small, but very nice to access to a pool. Roof deck nice to go on at night. Loved the free beach chairs and towels. Could hear some noise at night from street and outside restaurant activity, but not bad.

Try the great cuban restaurant on 7th and Collins. Tasty food at great prices! Hotel also close to Walgreens.

This was my 2nd visit at this hotel and I would defintely come again.

I have stayed here several times over the past 9 years. I love the location, love the staff..., but I do think its time to update the rooms.
The food is great.., kinda expensive. Lobby is beautiful and comfortable. The staff is very friendly an accommodating.

Well worth it for the location.!

When you stay here, you're paying for location. If you like the nightlife and the beach, the location is great. The staff was also polite and helpful. However, the rooms need work. I found ants in the bathroom and there wasn't much room to walk with double beds.

I booked this hotel thru living social for my honeymoon.Once i informed the front desk that i was getting married the same day as check in Rudy and Sharon worked to make our stay memorable which included upgrading the room to a beautiful ocean view suite , providing a bottle of champagne and fresh fruit. I must say at of all the hotels i have stayed at on south beach this by far has been the best . I would recommend this hotel to anyone...

From the outside the Park Central is beautiful along with the lobby and restaurant but the rooms were very old and dull. I was disappointed to be at the back facing a wall rather than a front facing room as I had sent several emails and requested the same through Virgin travel agents but they said they had no record of this. The guy on reception offered to upgrade us for $140 dollars but on seeing the superior room he offered I did not feel it was worth the extra considering we were not in Miami to stay in our rooms! however, we did find all the staff very friendly and it was a great location. you get free sun beds and towels to use on the beautiful beach.

All the hotel restaurants are out on the streets and you will be offered all sorts of discounts to eat there but beware as almost everything isn't included in the offer! great deals for breakfast though and lovely to sit out in the morning looking across at the beach.

Mangos night club (just up the road) is a must! Great food and non stop entertainment but be aware that the prime areas are only for VIP guests paying over $100 from a special menu! So eat early and then move to the bar stools if you can.

I recommend the Miami city and boat tour, it takes you to some incredible areas such as Coral Gables, Bayside and Little Havana and the boat takes you around the millionaire houses and the view of the Miami skyline is incredible (as good as New York)

We walked to Miami Ink on Washington and they were happy for us to look around and they posed for pictures. Further on we walked to Lincoln Road which was full of shops and Restaurants.

We absolutely loved Miami, thought it was very clean and felt very safe.

Room Tip: See if you can get a front view room without paying for it!

Hotel was in a great location right across the street from south beach. The hotel was very clean and the service was great. J.C. Was extremely helpful and allowed us to have a greater experience than we expected.
