About Park Central New York Hotel
A New York landmark with a history that stretches back to the Jazz Age, the Park Central New York Hotel offers an appealing combination of decor, amenities and location. With Central Park to the north, Rockefeller Center to the east, and the Theater District and Times Square to the south and west, few hotels in the city are as aptly named.
In addition to the sites named above, the Park Central New York Hotel is across the street from Carnegie Hall, steps away from the Russian Tea Room and the Carnegie Deli, and within easy walking distance of cultural institutions like Radio City Music Hall, the Museum of Modern Art and St. Patrick's Cathedral, as well as the world-famous shopping on Fifth Avenue (Bergdorf Goodman, Tiffany& Co., Harry Winston, Saks). A ten-minute walk will take visitors downtown to Broadway and Times Square, or uptown to Lincoln Center and the Metropolitan Opera.
The Park Central New York is a large, historic hotel, with 31 stories and 935 rooms. With bold, horizontal lines and strong geometric patterns, the decor is reminiscent of New York's haute couture of the 1970s. Decorated in light gold and beige tones, the rooms have a classic, uncluttered design that is comfortable without being obtrusive. But they also have a contemporary feel, with flat-panel TVs and glossy furniture with honey-colored accents.
The Park Central New York Hotel provides the classic range of amenities, from concierge service to a fitness center to a full-scale business center to extra-large function spaces; rooms have high-speed Wi-Fi and writing desks, and refrigerators and coffee-makers are available on request. For in-house dining, the hotel has a steakhouse and a bar lounge.
