Why don't hotels have coffeemakers in the rooms any longer? I suppose the answer is that they'd prefer that you buy a cup in the overpriced kiosk in the lobby. The Park Central has "some" coffeemakers that can be requested, but they apparently didn't have one for us.
Anyway--the location just south of Central Park is excellent. Walking distance to Broadway, Radio City Music Hall (for our daughter's graduation ceremony from NYU!), to the Empire State Building, etc.
The room was very clean, and well maintained for the two nights we were there. I thought it was spacious for a hotel room in NYC, and the beds were comfortable, with a great pillow assortment.
Complaints? Well, the aforementioned lack of coffeemaker, and the water pressure in the shower was low.
I used Priceline Express so I really can't comment on the value. We were there for a gorgeous spring weekend, and some of the rates I saw online for other hotels were appalling.
The valet parking was $58 per night.
On the whole, I would definitely recommend the Park Central.
