Advantages Fantastic Location, Large Rooms
Disadvantages Decor in the rooms could be tidier, Variable levels of service
Choosing a hotel in THE capital city of the world can be pretty daunting. With all the big names there, Sheraton, Hilton etc. you can be left scratching your head as to which one to go for. When it came down to it, the deciding factors for me were location, quality and price. If you are going to stay in NY for a few days you want it to be good and the wrong choice of hotel can take the shine of your time there. Having scooted through the myriad of options on Expedia.co.uk, I finally plumped for the Park Central. What persuaded me was the fact that it appeared to be in the middle of everything, it claimed to have soundproofing in the bedrooms (I'm a light sleeper) and the price was reasonable.
The Park Central has 25 floors and 935 rooms so it is big even by New York standards. Sadly for us we ended up on the fourth floor so our soundproofing from the noises of New York wasn't as good as I'd hoped. The hotel has recently undergone a $65 million renovation although you wouldn't have thought so looking at the room we were allocated. As we popped the electronic lock and wandered in, we were greeted by a large room with 2 beds, a chest of drawers with a TV on it and a small table and lamp. Needless to say, we headed straight for the windows to check out the view. We could see Carnegie Hall through one window whilst the other gave us a good view of Hooters! My wife’s first complaint was the..erm…soundproofing. This amounted to cellotape thrown along the seals of the window panes!! Next up was the fact that small strips of wallpaper were missing from the wall making the décor look very untidy.
