Park Central Hotel: A Classic New York Love Story
New York is home to many things, but an urban oasis unlike any other tops the chart. Central Park is one of the most beautiful places in the city. And it is this serene destination that has become the cornerstone of inspiration for the Park Central Hotel.
Located just three blocks south of Central Park in Midtown Manhattan sits this classic beauty. Built in 1927, Park Central played host to some of history’s greatest stars including Maye West, Jackie Gleason, and even Eleanor Roosevelt. Its “Off Broadway” charm is reflective in the art deco that laces the crown molding and architectural nuances throughout the property.
The Park Central Ode to NY
In 2014, the hotel received a makeover by the famous design firm Jeffery Beers International, who coined the renovation as a “Love Letter to New York.” While no room in the property has an actual view of Central Park, each wall is however adorned with a photograph that represents the best of the park. The wallpaper even has a wood finish to resemble being surrounded by trees.
The richness of New York’s history and culture is felt immediately upon entering the hotel. Being a social city, the lounge was designed with the intention of allowing guests to interact. With a “see and be seen” approach, the open floor plan and plush seating encourages guests to get out of their rooms and into the social arena.
The subdued dark wood finishes up against sage green Earth tones offer a comfortable retreat for those coming from and going into the New York City madness.
