I have multiple types of Person Accounts in my org, using only the Contact object I want to identify which record type my Contact record is. Using Contact.RecordTypeId appears blank when using Person Accounts so this cannot be used.

Is there another field available (similar to PersonAccountID) to get related Account information?

No, there is not a field on the contact that tells you what the record type is. You would need to query the account instead (e.g. Account.RecordTypeId, etc). Note that it's probably better to just query the account instead, since you can access all the contact fields at the same time.
