I stayed here for 4 nights. The staff were absolutely great...extremely helpful. The location is excellent, close to all the SoBE attractions. Breakfast is taken next door but there's better value to be had along Ocean Drive. The roof terrace is wonderful with great views. The downside is purely the age and soundproofing of the property. The walls are very...

We stayed at The Park for only one night, and we loved the place! It is very well located, and has a unique charm that cannot be found in recent hotels. We arrived early around 11:00 am, and we were lucky to have a room ready for us. The staff was very friendly, and we have no complaints. We took...

Stayed for four nights in March 2008 and had a great time. We were put in a room in the building next door, which was a very mild inconvenience in terms of getting to the sun deck, etc - but it was a good room. It wasn't huge but it was very bright and had a fantastic comfortable bed. The...

Great customer service from the entire front desk and concierge staff, however, room accommodations were well over-rated. Booked a corner ocean front room, however, we ended up on the third floor and could not see over the tree line to the ocean at all. No tub in the bathroom, only an accessible shower. Noise from the street level was live-able,...

well kept older hotel with great character; restaurants nice, staff great and helpful. Pool is small and too visible; location is nice -- right on Ocean Drive- short walk through a park to beach- self parking was good.

Firstly the hotel. A beautiful art deco building opposite the beach on Ocean Drive. The entrance is really in keeping with the external appearance and we were very well recived at check in. We were allocated a room which turned out to be a smaller room than the King room we requested and were promptly moved to a much bigger...

I stayed here for a Friday & Saturday night with 2 girlfriends - it was a great place to stay when you're interested in the South Beach nightlife, but don't want to pay a ridiculous amount of money. It's not the most luxurious hotel in the world, but it's clean and has comfortable beds. There's great access to the beach...

We stayed in The Park Central for 7 nights last February as part of our Honeymoon, although there are more modern hotels in south beach/miami beach this suited us just perfect both for price and location. No problems checking in and out and staff were friendly at all times. The rooms could have done with a fresh coat of paint...

This is a lovely period art deco hotel in a great location...walking distance to everything in SoBe. Linens were wonderful...toiletries upscale. A few problems did exist...I booked a room with two beds (was traveling with Mom and Sis for a girls getaway)...was told upon arrival that no two bed rooms were available but that I could purchase an adjoining room...

We were looking for a 2 night pre-cruise hotel in Miami and booked the Park Central on the strength of the Trip Advisor reviews we had read. We weren’t disappointed. The hotel is in a terrific location at the quieter end of Ocean Drive but still has the wonderful atmosphere with so much going on that you can sit on...

“The ocean view rooms are quiet--unusual for South Beach. However, the windows do not open, so you won't be able to hear the ocean breeze.”
