The Park Central was built in 1937 and was once a favorite rendezvous for Hollywood stars including Clark Gable, Carol Lombard and Rita Hayworth. This ocean front gem, a member of the Historic Hotels of America, encompasses 127 newly renovated, refreshed and revitalized deluxe rooms. Located on Ocean Drive, across from the ocean, in the heart of South Beach's Art Deco district, The Park Central has remained an icon of Ocean Drive and a favorite of those seeking an authentic Art Deco experience, a warm welcome, and a high level of comfort. This is a smoke-free hotel.

Nice couple vacation

We have stayed at the Park Central a number of times. Staff are professional and friendly. J.C. Concierge, Sergio, Doorman all warm, friendly and very helpful. Location is perfect and weather is usually sunny and comfortable with ocean breezes. Quinn's restaurant is excellent. We would always go back to the Park Central.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

You don't need a car in SoBe, in fact, you don't want one. South Beach Local Bus and taxi can get you where you want to go cheaply. Fly in, get shuttle/cab to hotel and back when you are leaving.

Front desk

Had a great time on ocean drive, the hotel is very dated and needs a face lift!!! Most of the staff were friendly except the girls on the front desk! They were misreble ,,, really let the hotel down, I remember phoning the hotel a week before hand and thinking they were really rude!!! At time I thought it was me miss reading it!!! But yes!! They have no people skills... Would not stay again but it's good value for money, saying that I've still not received my deposit back yet? Guess I have to phone the girls on front desk to chase!! Oh, no....

Perfect location with very helpful staff

The location couldn't be any better and the staff were extremely helpful. Having access to free lounge chairs on the beach was a definite added plus. While the hotel building is old, the rooms were nicely furnished and well maintained. We have stayed at several different SoBe hotels and this was by far the best. We will definitely be back.

great location, no tackiness outside the hotel

Loved the experience. The location was perfect, and the hostess at the restaurant outside was not hustling for customers like every other restaurant on the strip. The rooftop was a huge plus. The pool is small, but I doubt anyone should care for it...the beach if 20 steps away right in front of the hotel.

Golden vacation

the park central is a cute hotel, but the amenities are not great. The ice machine is difficult to find. The hallways look a bit sketchy. The bed itself was a bit hard for my taste and it had a dip down the middle. The staff were not always very welcoming and never greeted us as we came in and out of the hotel. I was very shocked at how misleading the pictures online are, rooms are small and bathrooms are smaller!... Besides all that, this hotel does offer some good qualities. The resturant "Quinn's" located in the hotel is amazing, but EXPENSIVE", for a nice dinner. Drinks at the hotel are very tasty. The pool always seemed to be very clean and a great time for relaxing; it's not like the other hotels who have loud music and a party scene around it constantly (so depending on what your looking for, this can be a positive and a negative thing). I also appreciated that the hotel provides beach chairs and towels directly in front of the hotel. & finallly for its location and price, this is a good hotel.

The pelican has great and very delicious drinks at a very reasonable price. Also... Don't forget you much stop off at wet willies and try at least two of their dozens of frozen drinks. & finally don't leave south beach without having a slice of pizza at Pizza Ristica.
