Why We Love It

  • Convenient to many top sights: Central Park is three blocks away and Times Square is less than 10 blocks south
  • The deco exterior dates from the 1920s, while the interiors are finished off with modern touches
  • A star-studded past guest list include Mae West and Eleanor Roosevelt
  • A sleek lobby and cavernous new lounge are scented by 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


A huge, deco presence in Midtown Manhattan, the Park Central hotel makes a few explicit promises with its name, luckily ones that are well delivered upon. Reverse the name and you get Central Park, and yes it's close, very close. Three blocks north of the hotel is where it begins, 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 radiating up Seventh Avenue, beckoning you to stroll south into the melee. On your way down, take a left turn a block to arrive at Rockefeller Center.

While the hotel's exterior dates from the '20s, the 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 feel almost gentlemanly. In the lobby, fresh flowers frame the reception desk, and a wall of louvered blinds in a herringbone pattern veils a capacious lounge and cafe.

The first morning of our stay in NYC my husband started to step into the elevator to go get coffee and dropped a small, zippered notebook that contained not only all the info he'd put together on places he wanted to see in the city but also a hand-drawn Valentine's card for me. The notebook fell into the gap just outside the elevator door, falling to the bottom of the elevator shaft. He told the front desk about the notebook but considered it lost. Within 90 minutes, he was stopped when walking in the hotel lobby by the same hotel employee who told him "I have something for you," and then went and got him his notebook. Made his day. Definitely above and beyond service!!

We arrived so early to the hotel from the airport and they were able to accomodate us arriving hours before our check in time. Thank you. In addition, the location was great to subways and times square / grand central station.

The location. It was two blocks from Central Park, Carnegie Hall and 12 minutes from Penn Station. The rooms at the hotel were very nice, no restaurant though and if you wanted coffee in your room you had to tell them at check in.
