Decorated in soft, silvery grey, Park Central rooms are large to New York standards - even the smallest includes deckchairs. Free 46-inch flat-screen TVs, pillowtop mattresses and sleek workspaces with modern chairs are standard. Plaid rugs, beamed ceilings and photos of iconic New York landmarks decorates all hotel rooms. Retro-inspired bedside lamps and chrome floor lamps are fantastic, but the lack of lighting from above leaves the rooms dimmed. There is no coffee pot and mini-fridge, although they are available on request according to the principle "first come, first served".
Cabinets are equipped with safes, irons and ironing boards. CO Bigelow toiletries and luxury toiletries are provided, including eco-pump dispensers in shower or tub combinations. Upgrading to a suite gets guest rooms with separate living rooms on the higher floors and a better view of the city. Some rooms have Times Square views.
The bar serves high-quality cocktails, wine, beer and light snacks in the evening. Special happy hour of the week is offered weekly live music and bimonthly cocktail lessons (for a fee). Casual Central Market off the lobby serves freshly made coffee and pastries from early morning to evening, along with fruit, snacks and a small selection of wine and beer.
