      Historical Traveler Reviews The Park Central Miami Beach

      The Park Central exceeded my expectations!

      from

      We love this hotel & will be staying here again. The hotel looked new; the front desk was very helpful & friendly. The housekeeping was excellent &. The rooms were large & clean. The location was GREAT & Very convenient. This would be a nice honeymoon spot. We would definitely stay there again.

      The BEST place to stay on South Beach!

      from

      From start to finish, the Park Central was a delight. Our rooms were nicely decorated, very clean, and the featherbeds are to die for! Our room had an nice ocean view (well worth the slight up-charge) and the service was friendly and prompt. Our rate included a full breakfast, which was an excellent value, and our dinner in their sidewalk resturaunt on our last night there was the best we'd had in South Beach (don't miss the mashed potatoes) By far the best part was Mario-the world's best doorman. His hospitality and great tips on where to go made our trip fantastic!

      Great Place but beware....

      from

      I stayed in the hotel for my birthday two years ago which was my first time there. Its a great hotel on the end of south beach away from the mad crowds and yet close to the fun. When i stayed there ABC was there and Diane Sawyer doing the big J LO interview. The hotel staff treated us great. So great i took my girlfriend to the hotel as a suprise for her birthday. And like the other person i was stuck in the back of the hotel. Our door was in the fire escape. You all know how at the end of the hallway there is a door leading to the stairs-our room was behind that door in the fire escape. Be careful when booking there.

      Great Hotel!

      from

      We searched the Web for a decent hotel in Miami Beach that was close to the beach, in the middle of the South Beach fun and not too expensive.

      We were really lucky to have found The Park Central. From the moment we arrived the staff went out of their way to make sure that we enjoyed our trip. The doorman (Mario) was always friendly and offered good advice on restaurants and bars. The rooms we had (there were 3 couples in our group) were clean and well maintained. The complimentary breakfast each day was excellent. While this is by no means a hip or trendy hotel, it is located in the heart of South Beach and within walking distance of just about anywhere you might want to go. Whenever I return to South Beach, you can be certain that I will be staying at The Park Central.

      Great vacation

      from

      Nice hotel in a good location with good ocean views. After much searching on the web we went for this hotel based on confort, service and location - Had a great ocean facing suite which compensates for the smallish bedroom. Very clean with inpecable service and good breakfasts (negotiate complimentary if you can). This hotel is great for hanging out, not hip or too crowded and therfore they try that much harder. If you want the in crowd try the Nash, Tides or The hotel of South Beach - but are they really worth the money?This is a better than average 3* plus hotel and can't be faulted - recommended.

      Business Man's delight

      from

      When in Miami go South Beach . As a business traveler I am always looking for places that are in the thick of things and Park Central has it all. The Staff was helpful and the service prompt. Rooms are clean and comfortable. More importantly they are located in the heart of South Beach fun. clubs, dancing and lots of people hanging out. I Started in the hotel bar at 8PM and ended up back in my room at 2AM all on a Monday night.

      Wonderful hotel

      from

      We have stayed at the Park Central three times, the last time in August 2003. We love the place, nice clean rooms, friendly staff and most importantly for me accessible. I am a wheelchair user and I stay in a wonderful wheelchair accessible room, with a roll-in shower and wonderful view of the ocean. i have access to all the areas ofthe hotel and there is a ramp leading to the front door. A truely lovely place and we will be back next year. Oh I nearly forgot, the manager placed a lovely bunch of roses in our room, because we had stayed there more than once.

      Everything I Had Hoped

      from

      Being from a city that specializes in hospitality, I am always a little nervous when staying somewhere new. I had read enough reviews of this hotel to give it a shot and I must say that I was not disappointed.

      The hotel is actually two buildings. The main building houses the regular rooms. The building to the left of the main hotel is the Heathcote Apartment building. This is where the Suites are and where we stayed. We got a fantastic deal through Orbitz. The Suite building has it's own key access. Our suite was like an economy apartment. A kitchen, foyer, living room, bedroom and bath. Keep in mind that this building was built in the 30's or 40's. Decor was very nice and amenities were as well.

      The staff was very nice and helpful. For a small daily fee, I was able to use a pass for the Miami Beach Public Parking Garage one block back.

      All in all a very pleasant experience.

      Sweet.

      from

      Just got back from a quick, two nite trip to SoBe and had a great time at the Park Central. Very clean, nicely restored to its deco grace, very cool lobby and bar, nice little pool. Lots of nice touches - cotton bedding and period furnishings, bottled water in your room every day, affordable room service, helpful and smiling faces everywhere. Our room was less than a hundred bucks, but next time we'll splurge a little and get a room facing the water. We'll definitely return to the Park Central.

      Nice Place / Great Deal

      from

      After reading a bunch of reviews, we got a rate of less than $100 for late December. We wanted to stay in a nice older place with character and not a faceless chain type place. We got what we wanted.We arrived around 11pm and checked in to the quiet lobby. When we went to the room we were disappointed. The room was large and clean but the view was horrible. It looked out on the back alley and it was noisey because of an AC unit. Called down to the desk and asked to be moved. The desk person was really nice about it. He said he could move us to an ocean view room but it only had two double beds. We took it and it was much better.The bed was really small for two people but when we woke up the view was amazing. The bathroom was small as well but the fixtures had all been modernized and it was all very clean. This hotel is located in what I think is the prettiest section on SB. Right on Ocean Drive with a beautiful park right in front of the building that leads to the beach. Awesome.We didn't eat at the hotel but the bar and restaurnat area looked really nice. We did take advantage of the really small gym area. It was too cold to use the pool and it too was really small but come on...the beach is right across the street.We got lucky with the Ocean view room even though the beds were too small. Why don't they just put a King in there? I'm not sure what the other rooms are like but the furniture was very nice period reproductions. Very tasteful.This is not a glitzy hotel but it's clean, comfotrtable and it has class.We stopped by the Delano to check it out. We botht hought it was kind of a joke. Trying way too hard. The Parc Central was cool and unpretentious. Highly recommended especially if you are paying lesss then $150.

      The following day the rain had started to easy and so we booked a day trip to the Everglades and a city tour in the afternoon to discover the rest of Miami. When we got to the everglades we went out on a hover craft and spotted some aligators, snakes and an abundance of wild life. The trip also included a nature show where we learned a bit about a number of different species and topped it off with a beer and aligator ...

It was like a cattle call you were herded into lines then other lines. There was a passport scan and ticket check. Then into another line to get screened and have your bags scanned. Then on to another level where you had your ticket checked then assigned a boarding number and herded into another long line to ...

      ... this time, we were both starving, so we headed inland through Grennich Town and past New York University (NYU) looking for food. NYU was very interesting, as Washington Square is the centre of the campus and the surrounding buildings are College accommodation and classrooms. If there weren't flags of NYU everywhere, you wouldn't even think it's a University. We finally found a Chipotle (Brad also loves it) to sit down and recharge at. The final thing Brad and I did (before he had ...

      20/9/11 Taxi to Cancun airport for flight at 12 but delayed until 1pm, little bit worried that we would miss our connection in Miami. Short flight and weather much better than before, blue skies!! Landed and met by express connection staff who marched us through to a separate queue in Immigration, then customs and onto the next flight waiting area. No need to panic as this flight was delayed!! All aboard and only one hour delay so no ...
