I stayed here as a single female business traveler for four nights in February. The room and bathroom was very clean, with a nice big TV and the bed was beautiful and comfortable. My only complaint was the standard room was very tiny. I found it to be nice and quiet. The Wifi worked perfectly and was a fast connection....

This is a lovely small boutique hotel within the art deco section of Miami Beach. It is right across the road to a small park, the beach walk, and the beach. Our room was without a balcony, but had a side view of the ocean and the pool. The room was nice with new linens and the bathroom was a...

I booked a 3 night stay at Park Central as part of a 15 day Florida road trip. The price was very appealing, but I slipped up by booking a classic room as we had no view at all and window looked straight into a side wall of adjoining building which was very disappointing - especailly as I had noted...

Stayed at the Park Central for 5 nights in late Jan 2008. Wasn't sure what to expect beforehand, some mixed reviews on here I thought. Our opinion was that if you're looking for a nice, relatively priced place on the quieter end of Ocean Dr, then this is your best bet. Had a 2nd floor room looking onto Ocean Dr....

The location is great, the views are wonderful, the staff are helpful and friendly, beds and linens are excellent, South Beach is amazing. I wanted to love this place. But I wouldn't go back. They just have got to spend some money on this wonderful old hotel. The elevator is prehistoric, and makes an incredible racket. The air conditioner has...

We stayed at the Park Central for my 30th birthday celebrations. We had spent a week cruising the caribbean and wanted to spend a few days at South Beach before travelling home. The hotel was lovely and central, right across from the beach with gorgeous views. We booked a partial ocean view room which was at the back of the...

The hotel is in prime Ocean Drive position. Our room was clean, airy and bright. The staff were great, especially the doormen who were really helpful & friendly. Across the road from the beach, the free sunloungers were great. The roof terrace was ideal. The Casablanca bar terrace was great for a bottle of beer after the beach, and great...

$239 bucks a night for the top floor (6) room 606, corner room in the Art Deco district, almost unreal! BUT remember the hotel was built in the 1920's so don't go in expecting your staying at the Lowe's. The room was a good size with an amazing corner ocean view that was unbeatable! Windows cracked about 4 inches and...

We have just returned from Miami having stayed for 6 nights pre and post cruise at Park Central. The first weekend we were there happened to coincide with the Art Deco w/e so the entire place was buzzing with people, and attractions, including classic cars, motor bikes and numerous stalls and entertainers, including Billy Joel with his Harley Davidson bike...

“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.”
