“Nice hotel in great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2011

My husband was scheduled for surgery in Manhattan, and I needed a safe, clean, affordable hotel for myself and my 21-year-old son. Not wanting to spend a fortune on an expensive hotel, I asked friends and colleagues for suggestions. A colleague recommended the Park South Hotel on East 28th St. I had never heard of this hotel, but decided to try it. With a AAA discount, I was able to book a room for $189/night--a great rate for NYC. The room was clean and nicely appointed, with free wifi, cable, and a private bath. The staff were very professional and courteous, even asking us if we needed anythhing special since we were visiting a patient in the hospital. We could not have been more pleased. If you haven't been to the Park South Hotel, give it a try. You'll be glad you did.

Room Tip: Use AAA, AARP rates if you can.

I can't get too excited about the hotel but at the same time there isn't much to complain about. The room was clean, not that big but not cramped. The breakfast was good - lots of pastries, fruit and cold meats - and the bar had some charm to it. The staff were perfectly fine. As for location, it's a quietish area for Manhattan, though if you're like and appreciate decent bars then you'll be going to other parts of town. Even the price was pretty average. All in all, nothing to shout about but it certainly does the job. .

We stayed during the blizzard between Christmas and New Years, and couldn't have had a greater location. The staff worked very hard to make sure we had cabs whenever we needed them, and the subway was just a few steps away. The room was avg for New York, but quiet and clean. We ate in the Black Duck one night because we were Snowed In, and it was fabulous. Definitely will book again.

Park South is a good choice if you want to be near Madison Square park and Herald Square. The suite is a large room with a pullout couch, no closet. Really nice complementary breakfast. Some of the standard rooms in the hotel would be better classified as "maid's closet." Make sure to arrive early and ask for an alternate if they assign you to a closet!

Room Tip: face N (28th st), higher fl to reduce street noise

Excellent service, even though we were part of a large university group from Toronto arriving before check in time, the hotel was extremely organized in labeling our bags with names and room numbers so that we didn't have to do a thing.
All inclusive breakfast was the highlight.
Room was simply furnished and very functional, nothing more than that was needed from us. View from room wasn't great since we were on ground floor but we didn't need one anyways. Very clean and well kept hotel.
At night they had live music playing in the breakfast/dinner area and it was a very romantic atmosphere.
The staff were polite and always willing to give advice on tours and other sightseeing places around nyc.
Location of hotel was not too bad with a fairly easy access to subway and close to empire state building and very quiet neighborhood.
Best thing: amazing breakfast
Worst thing: location (which again wasn't so bad)

I stayed four nights in June 2011. The hotel is on 28th Street between Park and Lexington Avenues. One can reach the hotel from Grand Central with a walk directly down Park Avenue. This will take you 10 to 15 minutes, depending on your pace.

The lobby is modest, but the check-in was efficient, pleasant, and offered little Hershey bars. Two adjacent elevators serve the hotel and this arrangement is adequate for all but the most busy times. There is an eating area off the lobby that serves the buffet style breakfast that comes with the room charge. Breakfast has a good selection of items, cereals, fruit, yogurt, hard-boiled eggs, various danish, bagels, coffee (regular and decaf), and a selection of juices. Everything is simple and perfectly adequate. There is no limit and you can enjoy yourself. In the evening the same area becomes the Black Duck restaurant. I ate here one night, and had the duck. It was good, cooked right, and had plenty of flavor. I would rate the duck dinner as 8/10. Things are ordered one at a time, with the duck being about $25. Salad was extra, spinach, and also good but a bit routine, perhaps 6/20. Service was pleasant. It was a Tuesday night and no reservation was needed. There are two or three tables on the street, but most tables are inside. There is a bar that serves just about anything.

The rooms are on the small side. Mine had a double bed, with about two feet to spare on each side, with perhaps 4 feet between the end of the bed and the wall. The bed was very comfortable and came with 4 regular pillows. A small desk was present with a good light with two intensities. There was a mini-fridge. The room had three small drawers and a half-closet - adequate to hang shirts or jackets, but a full length dress would have to be folded. There was no rack for a suitcase, but the top of the desk could be used. The bathroom was very clean and of good size and everything in there worked fine. There is air conditioning with two settings, two fan settings, and heat settings. It was 95 and humid most of the week and the air conditioner kept the room comfortable. It has the same problem many of these do - when the air conditioner cooling turns off, so does the fan so the noise level fluctuates. When the fan alone is on it is continuous. Internet is available. My room did not face the street (most don't) and was well insulated from the outside noise. This was one of the quieter hotels that I have experienced in New York.

Room Tip: As for a room that does not face the street.

On arrival we could not get to the reception desk because a film crew were making what appeared to be a porn film , the hotel must have rented the reception to them . We were shown to a terrible squalid room and only after considerable argument we were upgraded , the room was nothing like what was advertised on Hotels.com and the receptionist blamed hotels.com but the porter said it was always happening . The upgraded room was fine and breakfast was good but be very sure about what you are going to get !

Dear Larpool,
Hello and thank you for taking the time to write a review of your stay with us.
We are very sorry your visit did not reflect our high standards or meet your expectations.

In regards to the filming, the New York Film Festival did a short piece in our historic building under the watchful eye of our General Manager. Artistic endeavors in New York are part of what makes our city so amazing, but we sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this caused you upon check-in.

We are glad you enjoyed your room and breakfast and hope you may return another time.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
