"Great location, friendly staff & service."
Thought the building is old (historical site), they made the rooms modern. Small rooms, but very comfortable bed and pillows....we slept well! Staff was very friendly, kind, and helpful. Front desk, valet, and concierge...all pleasant. Sergio at the conceirge was informative and friendly. We will definetly come stay here again.

"Typical, old Art Deco hotel in South Beach."
Old hotel, in need of restoration. Room was small, bathroom was smaller. But everything was clean. Great location on South Beach!

"Great Location"
The rooms are a bit damp, mostly due to the location right next to the water. We had to change our room once, but the staff was very accommodating. The hotel is pretty basic, but nice enough and fantastic location.

"Not the best on the beach"
This hotel is scheduled for renovation but at this time, the rooms are not nearly to the caliber of the rating on Expedia. My reservation was "lost" on arrival and unfortunately, when the hotel corrected the error, they sent to me to room that was occupied. I was only a two day reservation but when I called to check out, I was told my reservation was only for one night. Another delay while that was corrected. There is no restaurant (the "restaurant" is separate and next door) and there is no coffee--neither in the room nor available in the lobby. Not even water for the guests. Very disappointed with this stay.

"Good Location"
We booked for the last week of the year when rates are high. This was the best deal for a hotel on Ocean. It needs updating and some renovation. Pool does not get sun and is extremely small. It was ok, but I won't stay again or even on Ocean as the restaurants harass you to eat at their place every time you walk by.

"Remodel needed"
This hotel has potential to be really great...and a remodel is coming soon that looks fantastic. But right now its looking very old and dingy. The carpet is extremely worn. The room we stayed in was a bit small with a small bathroom. But the ceiling fan and air conditioning was excellent. The location is great and you walk right out of the lobby onto Ocean Drive. I'd recommend waiting until the remodel is finished next year. In the meantime the Hotel is up a few blocks and its already updated along with a fantastic rooftop swimming pool and lounging area.

"A charming art deco survival"
The Park Central is a nostalgic reminder of a colorful and stylish Miami Beach of earlier times, a little timeworn and shabby now, but still great to look at. One funny example: on the third floor there's a grating with the initials PC wrought in iron...installed upside-down! The service is a little sketchy: Room Service forgot the coffee that goes with the continental breakfast, then forgot the milk to go with the coffee. But everyone was very nice, and the coffee and everything else from the restaurant was delicious. We had a room with an ocean view (plus the handicap access that we required), a great location in the middle of everything, including the eye-popping Ocean Drive scene and a great saxophone player who entertains in the evenings. The Park Central was a pleasant surprise in every way.

"Stay for the location not the hotel"
You really can't beat the location, it is ideal for South Beach. The hotel is just okay. The rooms are small, bathroom is tiny. A lot of this cannot be helped as it is a historic hotel and you do get the sense that it was very special when it was built. The pool is small and no hot tub but it was heated and comfortable. The rooftop is a lovely feature but could use some cleaning and updating. The rooms themselves are VERY dated. Our first room had terrible beds so we asked to be moved and the new beds were better. The staff don't seem to care about the guests. This was a similar attitude we got from all of Miami Beach. Front desk staff were not friendly. The concierge staff were friendly but many seemed to see the guests as people they could make more money from. They referred us to attractions in town that would give them a kick back. We got suckered into an overprice tour by the concierge. We were disappointed. A couple of the older concierge staff were really nice and very helpful. Overall, I expect the hotel is pretty typical for South Beach at that price point. We paid a very high rate because of the timing (just before New Year) but it was way too high for what we got. I would have been much more satisfied with the hotel if my rate had been more reasonable. They say they will be doing renovations soon but for now much of the hotel stands empty with no purpose. There isn't even a hotel bar at the moment.

"The Park Central Hotel in South Beach"
We have been going to The Park Central for 10 years. We love the central location. It is across the street from the ocean. We can walk to many fine restaurants, or take a short cab ride. The Park Central has a delicious steak! But most important is the staff. They treat us like friends.

"didn't meet our expectations"
cons: The first day of our stay, the room was very small, moist and not clean. The bathroom was very small, didn't have any fan and its door was right next to the bed. The fridge didn't work and there were no coffee machine in the hotel. They claimed it's a historic hotel so that's how it is. But cleanliness is not a modern thing. A bathroom needs a working fan! After we complained several times they changed the room for the next day and it got much better, but still... Pros: Locationwise it was perfect. Less than 1min walk to the beach and lots of good restaurants. Crews at the door were very friendly, nice and helpful. Juan was also a nice manager that helped us to change the room.

"A fine old art deco place to stay"
Considering that this is an old art deco hotel, it was fine. Of course, some repair is needed, but upkeep of these treasures is endless. Service and valet parking ($28) were superb. Great location across from park. Easy walk to beach. Endless sidewalk cafes lure customers.

I was there for one night only. This is a superb location right across from the beach at 7th St. There is a self park garage for $20 for 24. hrs two blocks away. The hotel is under current renovation . I am sure once that is completed the price will increase dramatically. Right now , given its location it is a bargain as long as you at not looking for the Ritz . It was built in 1937 , so it is an old hotel with lots of charm.

"Park Central not Good"
The hotel rooms were outdated, rooms look old. Paid for a room upgrade but the only difference was the view. Not worth the upgrade costs. Pool was listed as heated but it was too cold to swim in, so it was not heated enough. Front desk staff was not good. Tried to sell us parking for $28 a day but your better off paying at the meters. THE ONLY Thing good about the hotel was the location.

"Location, Location, Location"
Visited for 4 days and didn't want to deal with cabs or driving. Location is great - lots of restaurants, bars, and the beach all within walking distance. The hotel itself is in sad condition - clearly the owners are not interested in spending any money to improve the property and instead are maximizing their RIO. This is a short-sighted approach that over time will not serve them well. Examples include the window air conditioning unit in our room running 24/7, tub that never drained properly, and toilet noise after filling that is likely fixed by replacing the fill valve (unlikely considering the owners have no interest in spending any money to improve the property).

Upgraded to a corner room on top floor with view of the beach-magical! Low rise hotel in Art Deco district. No lobby to speak of.

It is a historic hotel with nice upgrades.

"Thanksgiving getaway in Miami"
Have stayed here in the past but the hotel has definitely gone down hill. First the wireless wouldn't work in the room and the hotel staff said it was my apple IPhone was the problem. The front desk person was very hard to understand but he just kept repeating to keep trying and it would eventually work!! Very poor customer service. He knew that the wireless doesn't work in that building but kept insisting it was my problem. Then I walked to another building and it worked fine. After first day demanded a new room and then it worked fine. The rooms are very tiny and the ocean view room means that you stick head out window and look way out to see. The TVs are very outdated and the remote only works after you turn on the TV and then of course you have to get out of bed to turn it off. Both rooms were up against another building and there was trash and junk lining the space below....wasn't very pleasant to view. The hotel bar is gone and looks very boring when you walk in. I won't be staying here again and advise others to look at other hotels.

"Excellent staff, Ideal location, Poor room Comfort"
The hotel staff was very accommodating, welcoming and available to assist. However, although room service attended to cleanliness daily, the room had a horrible odor/stench. May have been the carpet flooring and/or the lack of air ventilation. All windows [including the bathroom] were nailed shut leaving a ceiling fan and an air-conditioner as the only options. Due to high humidity, any left damp clothing will remain the same after 24 hours.

There are many many restaurants right down the sidewalk. All the clubs and Dance spots are literally a few steps from the hotel - right down the sidewalk.

Hotel is very run down, should be closed during the renovation. Toilets in rooms barely even flush and public restrooms are a disaster. Most of the staff was very helpful given the property have to deal with. However, one night we had two men (with a key)enter our room as we were dressing for dinner. Given we were two women alone, I found it most distressing when I called the front desk and was told " it is not a problem, nothing to be concerned about.". We were very uncomfortable leaving for dinner, and stacked suitcases and room furniture at the door to feel secure enough to sleep. Unacceptable at ANY price. Bare minimum I expect in any hotel is safety.
