“Great service always wins.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2012

I stayed here for just one night, but the level of service that we received while we were here was second to none. Allison, our shuttle driver, researched some spots where we could get food after 9 within their 3 mile radius. The restaurant that she took us, Zacatecas, was excellent, I'm going to be giving them 5 stars as well. The hotel's history, architecture, style and theme have a big hotel feel. The rooftop bar on the 4th floor overlooking downtoen Albuquerque was very impressive as well. My standard room was a little small, but traveling alone and only for one night it wasn't an issue. I'll be back for all future stays.

Dear stevenwsmithii,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your recent stay with us. We are thrilled to know that you received service that was second to none- we feel this is the most vital part of your experience with us. We are pleased that Allison was able to not only recommend a restaurant, but take you there. We love to encourage our guests to experience the local scene and some of the great restaurants in Albuquerque. Zacatecas is fairly new and we are pleased to know that you enjoyed your experience there. We are delighted that you found the architecture, style and theme of the hotel pleasing. It is always wonderful when our guests are able to spend some time on the rooftop in the Apothecary Lounge. We are happy that the size of the room worked for you to travel alone, but we do offer five different room types should you need more space on your next visit.

Thank you for choosing to stay with us at Hotel Parq Central. We look forward to seeing you again soon!

All the best,

Noelle Wallace

When moving my daughter from Los Angeles back to Arkansas we drove her car cross country. Approaching Albuquerque for the night I pulled up Trip Advisor and booked this hotel after seeing it rated #1. I have to say, this is a little gem. It certainly lived up to its ranking.

Unfortunately we were just there for a good nights sleep before continuing on the following morning at the crack of dawn. But sleep well we did. The room was comfy and the bed was wonderful. We were in a double so I can only attest to the size of this type room. It sounded and looked small in the published photos but it was just right and all we needed. The decor throughout the building is trendy but not harsh, all soft colors.

The only drawback for us was that there was no room service. We had been on the road all day and did not want to go to the lounge. However, the front desk clerk was very accomodating by suggesting a restaurant with delivery service. They were prompt and the food was great.

I would stay here again and highly recommend it.

This was our second stay at this lovely hotel, this time for six days. I marveled again at the
exquisite detail that went into the refurbishing of the building and grounds. The room had a
great westerly view of the Albuquerque downtown. The bed was so comfortable and promoted
sleep. Breakfast is elegant and continental with one hot entree, choice of cereals and juices, toasts, yogurt, oatmeal, fresh fruit, coffee and tea, pastries. We took advantage of the fitness room and small, onsite
laundry room this time. Every time we walked through the lobby, you could hear great music
and the staff was always friendly and helpful. This is an Albuquerque gem and close to other
delightful places like the Artichoke Cafe, Standard Diner, Daily Grind Coffee, Frontier
Restaurant, UNM campus, Annapurna.

Room Tip: All rooms are equally lovely. We've stayed in the main building and the auxilliary building in...

we were there for two nights (2 kids, 2 adults) and it was superb! the staff are amazingly professional and attentive. I highly recommend the massage therapy amenity. Loved the simple decor, patio breakfast was a huge hit for all, very pet friendly, and we both used the workout facilities which were clean and great True equipment. The lounge was great for meeting up with friends, and the location on Central was great for getting around easily to all the ABQ attractions. thank you and we will be back!!

From the time we arrived and Allison showed us to our room, we felt like family! The Apothecary Lounge on the rooftop offered great wine, spectacular night views and fantastic service! The rooms are spotless, the bed is comfortable and even though you are right next to the highway you would NEVER know it because it is so quiet! This historic old hospital repurposed as a hotel is definitely worth the stay! Breakfast offers quiche, pastries, fresh fruit, and more great service! I highly recommend this hotel!

Room Tip: Our room overlooked the beautiful garden but I honestly don't think you could go wrong with ANY...

Wonderful hotel with great service, a great value, will stay there again soon. Great view from rooftop lounge day or night with nice bar menu. Best free breakfast we have had. Large rooms with very comfortable bed and furniture. The location is perfect for sight seeing between Old town and Nob Hill.

The only downside of my stay at Hotel Parc Central was that I was there just for one night. The hotel is georgeous. The rooms are spacious, perfectly clean, modern and very quiet. The beds and pillow are amazingly comfortable.
On top of that (literally) they have a great restaurant on the top floor: Apothecary Lounge. It is small, cozy, great food and amazing view!
Finally, it is very conviniently located near the airport.
When I go back to Alburquerque I aill make sure to make part of the trip a longer stay at Parc Central.
