Ocean Drive is the heart of the historic Art Deco District and no hotel captures that glamorous design aesthetic better than the Henry Hohauser designed Park Central; perhaps one of the most photographed landmark structures in the city. With its signature bright blue color palette, buzzing neon lights and two classic cars parked out front, the hotel demonstrates how the historic preservation movement helped to gently usher older properties into functional modern accommodations with thoughtful design rather than the wrecking ball.
The Park Central offers guests a choice of 115 standard rooms and 12 poolside suites with flat panel TVs, iPod charging docks, free WiFi, and city or ocean views. Rooms start at 300 square feet with king bedded suites ranging up to 500 square feet. A small lap pool spans the distance from the main building to the smaller all-suite garden wing. With the sweeping Atlantic surf just steps away across Ocean Drive, guests are provided with beach chairs and towels so they can enjoy a day in the sun.
Two great restaurants open onto the busy promenade that is Ocean Drive. Enjoy a classic martini on the veranda at Casablanca and a gourmet meal at Quinn’s at days end. The hotel features a rooftop sundeck with a view over the Art Deco landscape that’s picture perfect. Blending classic furnishings with modern amenities, the Park Central celebrates the rich history of the Deco era while providing all the modern conveniences savvy travelers demand.
