    Historical Traveler Reviews Park South Hotel New York City

    Impressed

    from

    Spent two nights at the Park South in late May '04 and I was impressed. The quality of the decor and fittings, the cleanliness, the location (very close to a Subway stop) and the ample breakfast, were all particularly worth noting. The staff were also friendly and helpful. Some of the rooms looked small, although we were lucky to bag a fairly sizeable one. Pretty good for $149 + tax, booked through the hotel's own website.

    Noisy Broom Closet

    from

    My company HQ is right around the corner from Park South, so we're encouraged to stay there. As a returning "guest," I know the rooms range from quite lovely to tiny. However, the room I had on my last visit convinced me that I should stay almost anywhere else unless compelled by business reasons. I checked in at 3:00pm & was told I couldn't be upgraded from a (sub)"standard" room, since the hotel was fully booked. Although I made it clear that my company uses the hotel frequently, I was given a tiny room. While I could have dealt with that for my one-night stay, the room also backed onto an elevator shaft. It sounded as if people were rearranging furniture next door most of the night, although in reality it was the elevator mechanism. My suggestion would be to avoid this hotel unless you're willing to pay to guarantee one of the better rooms. Otherwise, you may find yourself in a room that the hotel should be ashamed of using for anything but a broom closet.

    Tiny rooms, few amenities, and no Internet as promised

    from

    I just spent three days at this hotel and was glad that my company was paying for it rather than me. My room was so small that there was no closet, nor was there anywhere to put the suitcase except on the floor.

    There was no space to work. Despite what the web site said, my room (and two colleagues' rooms) did NOT have high speed Internet access - you had to ask the bellman to take you to the locked business center in the basement. I ordered two items from room service, and one was wrong but I ate it anyway. There wasn't even anything so simple as a little card describing which TV channels were which - and since it was horribly hot in the room (one of my colleages even turned on the air conditioning even though we were there in a really cold January week), I couldn't sleep and listened to TV for three hours each night. All in all, I would recommend this hotel only if you couldn't find ANYTHING else above fleabag status.

    A truly wonderful little hotel

    from

    A truly wonderful little hotel. Extremely clean. Very comfortable bed.

    Small rooms, but nicely set-up with free high-speed internet access.

    Aromatherapy soap and shampoo in the bathroom are a nice touch, as are the beefy towels. The only down side of the rooms is that the TV set is not super high quality, and there isn't cable. The hotel does, however, have a library of DVDs available to guest for free. T

    he restaurant, especially if you read the web site, would suggest that it too is a "find". Unfortunately, I found that just about every meal, except breakfast, to be "over done" in terms of over using ingredients or making certain tastes overpower the main course. The restaurant is better than most hotel restaurants, but I would certainly advise anyone to explore if you've got the time to look for other spots to eat. The restaurant is "ok".

    Small rooms, but great hotel!

    from

    I have been looking for the perfect boutique hotel in New York City and think that I've finally found it. Be prepared though, most rooms are tiny but if you like European boutique hotels then this will not come as a shock. Everything is immacualtely clean, the bathroom is sparkling and had enough room for all my "stuff." There is a small cupboard where you can hank some clothes and 3 built-in drawers. A fax machine does take up half the desk, though, but you also get free high-speed internet access (bring your own ethernet cable.) A basic continental breakfast is included with the room. The queen bed was great with a firm mattress that I love. My view out the air shaft was dismal. I booked on their website and had a rate of $199 for 2 nights and $208 the other 4. A little web searching will probably get you a little cheaper. The staff was friendly, helpful and courteous. The Black Duck restaurant is a fantastic neighborhood-style bar/eatery with great food. Since I'm in NY regularly on biz, this will be my base in the future. It is 1/2 block from the Lex Line subway station on 28th and there are many excellent restaurants within easy walking distance.

    Ok Hotel - would try something different next time

    from

    The price was good but I'd try for something else next time. Everything in this room was small.

    I had a room with 2 double beds. The room was very small - no place to put suitcases. If you leave them on the floor, then you can't walk in the room - literally, we were climbing across the beds.

    There was no closet in the room - just a cupboard with a rod to hang some (short) items of clothing.

    The bathroom was small - with no countertop - only a pedestal sink and tiny glass shelf above the toilet.

    The beds were hard - I had a hard time sleeping and woke up stiff every morning.

    So great you think it can't be true.

    from

    I just stayed at the Park South hotel for the first time, and it will NOT be the last time I stay there. The hotel is excellent considering the New York hotel market. It is clean, clean, clean-- the rooms are nice, they are small but by New York standards they are moderately-sized. The bathroom was the cleanest bathroom I have ever seen in any hotel-- anywhere, any price. The staff could not be nicer or more helpful. The room I was in the first night was very nice, but there was some maintenance that caused it to be noisy. I complained the next morning and received a new room-- a very quiet one-- with a pleasant smile. The location (Murray Hill) is a little inconvenient for me, but I don't care-- that's how good this place is. The price is so reasonable that I wonder how long it will be before the price increases. I probably shouldn't be writing this review-- because now everyone will know my NY Secret!

    Excellent all around!

    from

    I spent four nights recently at the Park South Hotel at 122 E 28th and couldn't have been happier. Price was fair, room was nicely appointed, beds and amenities were wonderful, pleasant and helpful staff. The location is ideal and the neighborhood is full of interesting places to eat. Would definitely stay here again when my business is on the east side.I would have liked a minibar with fridge to keep wine, cheese etc but that is a small issue and did not detract unduly from a very pleasant stay.

    Charming

    from

    This hotel is a gem. I was looking for a charming hotel on a quiet street. This hotel was everything I wanted plus. Quiet street with a subway station on the corner. Small, quiet, clean hotel with very helpful staff. Rooms were New York City sized, with great bathroom. The beds were the best part, very comfy with lots of pillows. My niece said "she felt like a princess". The continental breakfast was a great way to start a busy day with fresh fruit, bagels, yogurt, and muffins. This hotel was a joy to return to every evening, with the added bonus of free DVD's to check-out so we could kick back in our room at the end of the day when we had no other plans. I will definantly stay here again on my next visit to the Big Apple!!

    Perfect for a weekend

    from

    We chose the Park South for their great rate (we payed $160/nt. for a room with a king sized bed) more than for any great review we'd read. I was nervous, but so pleasantly surprised. Not because the hotel was especially fancy - but because it was stylish, clean and friendly. We checked in at 3:30 am after a late flight in from LA - no problem. We ended up leaving a day or two earlier than we'd planned - no problem.

    Even though the bill originally showed a rate a little higher than what we'd been quoted on the phone, a friendly staff member quickly adjusted it for us. The location at Park South & 28th is great, the subway is right there. Our only minor complaints - no full length mirror in our room; almost no shelf space for bathroom toiletries; and we desparately wished for more hooks on which to hang clothes or towels. These space issues are common in NYC, though, and we happily accepted them in exchange for a great room rate, good service, and even style at the Park South.
