Midtown - Times Square

Park Central New York

Travelzoo Staff

Why We Love It

  • Close to many top sights: Central Park is three blocks away and Times Square is less than 10 blocks south
  • The exterior dates from the 1920s, while the interior design is finished off with modern touches
  • A star-studded roster of past guests including Mae West and Eleanor Roosevelt
  • A sleek lobby and cavernous new lounge are scented with fresh flowers

Map & Directions

From JFK, the journey in a yellow cab will take around 45 minutes in good traffic. Newark is roughly the same distance, and LaGuardia is slightly closer. You can also take the AirTrain from JFK to Jamaica Station to catch the subway into Manhattan. The nearest subway is two blocks away (57th Street - 7th Avenue).

Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


Located in Midtown Manhattan, the Park Central Hotel makes a few promises just starting with its name. The park with its near namesake -- Central Park -- is very close to the hotel. Just three blocks north of the hotel is where the park starts before unfurling over 50 blocks of meadows, ponds, playfields and ice-skating rinks.

The hotel is central to other top sights too. Times Square is less than 10 blocks away, and you can see the neon glow radiating up over Seventh Avenue, beckoning you to stroll south into the melee. On your way down, take a left turn and you're at Rockefeller Center.

While the hotel's exterior dates from the Roaring Twenties, its insides are all shiny and new.  Rooms are coated in cool, vaguely metallic gray tones that bespeak sophistication, not flash. Silvery leather headboards, walnut-and-chrome furnishings and handsome plaid carpets veer towards gentleman decor. In the lobby, fresh flowers frame the reception desk, and a wall of louvered blinds in a herringbone pattern cloaks a capacious lounge and cafe.

From the moment we arrived it was wonderful. Location was perfect, accommodations were excellent and our room was more spacious than any other NYC hotel we've stayed.

It's convenience to the Park, close walking to some of the sites and having the subway at our door.

For the activities we enjoy, the hotel is very well located. Issues were quickly resolved using their "Ivy" text program. The room is comfortable, though the bathroom is exceptionally small.
Other Comments
We had some issues with the room..a broken door latch and empty soap dispensers in the shower. These were attended to quickly, though not everything was put back in it's place. We requested extra pillows, but did not get them. Also the room was very dark, as it looked out over an interior space. There should be more lighting in the room.
