Midtown - Times Square

Park Central Hotel New York

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

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, fields 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 furniture in the lobby is shabby at best. It really makes the hotel look cheap. The room air circulation smelled so bad. No overhead lighting anywhere....

We had our tablet stolen from our room. Front door didn't work so to many people came and went. Even when we were out.

Check-out time was noon. In the morning, I received my invoice under the door and everything had been paid for. My daughter and I were out in the morning and returned around 11:40 to check out and our door had been locked. I had to go back downstairs and have the guest services folks unlock the door. While the guest services employee was lovely, I really didn't like the lock-out experience. I can understand them doing this at noon, but not before.
