“Not your run of the mill”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

2 nights on business. Always looking for an alternative to the typical business hotel when I can, this property was recommended to me. This hotel oozed charm, character, history and friendly staff that were going above and beyond to make sure accommodations were acceptable. Pet friendly, converted former hospital I believe. Walk to restaurants and bars. Incredible outdoor roof top bar. My only criticisms would be: no ice maker in the hall, no traditional desk in the room, no vending machines. Workout room only had 1 treadmill. (All things in a typical business hotel).

Dear inotown,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your stay with us at Hotel Parq Central. We are pleased that you enjoyed the history of the building and found our staff to go above and beyond to ensure that you were comfortable during your time with us. We are glad that you were able to enjoy some of the neighboring restaurants and also enjoy some time on the rooftop of Hotel Parq Central at the Apothecary Lounge. We apologize that you were not told about the ice drawers in the hallways- we will be sure to point them out to you on your next visit. We wish we could have created more space in the fitness center, but unfortunately the existing building did not allow for that.

We appreciate you choosing to stay with us at Hotel Parq Central and we hope to see you again soon!

All the best,

Noelle Wallace

I picked this hotel based on tripadvisor reviews, and was not disappointed. Was in town for a conference and frequently used their free shuttle (a large van) to get to the university 1-2 mi. away (it was a little too far and too hot to want to walk). The staff were great about making a special trip over to pick me up at the uni when I called the front desk, and they accommodated pickups as soon as they could (occasionally the shuttle was already in use by another party).

Breakfast was great, with lots of nice self-serve options. All of the staff I encountered were friendly and gave the impression they enjoy their jobs and want to make guests happy.

I'm not sure if the rooms were all the same size, but my room was a corner room with a separate, entryway living room that had a loveseat, coffee table, refrigerator and TV; a spacious bathroom; and a large bedroom with another (!) flat-screenTV. The desk area was a little lacking, ergonomically speaking, but everything was clean, simple and attractive.

Perhaps the room layout has something to do with the hotel's history as a sanitarium many years before. An interesting display behind glass in the hallway shows some of the interesting medical paraphernalia from its history. But the hotel doesn't come off creepy, and (unfortunately for those looking for that type of thing, ha), there are no ghost stories to tell.

The only somewhat negative things I can think of are a) my room was on the side of the hotel closest to the (very nearby) freeway, and some traffic sounds did come through the walls, to an extent [Perhaps on the other side of the hotel, this would not be the case.], and b) it doesn't seem to be in a walking neighborhood. I don't know that I would have felt unsafe walking alone, necessarily, but it seems like it's on a major thoroughfare with mostly motels nearby - I think a nicer walking area might be on the other side of the university. Still, because of the stellar service and clean, well-appointed rooms, I would likely stay here again if I had another business trip in town.

Room Tip: Try to avoid a room on the freeway side.

Dear Biz-FunTraveler,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your stay with us at Hotel Parq Central. We appreciate you choosing to stay with us based upon TripAdvisor reviews and we are glad that your expectations were met. We are pleased that the complimentary shuttle service was helpful and that you enjoyed the breakfast each morning. Our staff enjoys offering hospitality to our guests. We are happy that your room worked well for you and was attractive and simple for you. The history of our building did play a significant role in the decor and we are glad you enjoyed it. We are sorry that there was some traffic noise in your room; while our location is convenient there is occasional noise from the interstate in a few rooms. We are sorry you were not able to enjoy a stroll through our neighborhood. It is historic as well and offers some of the best local food in town. We hope you will be able to enjoy some of what our neighbors have to offer next time you are in town.

We appreciate you choosing to stay with us at Hotel Parq Central and we look forward to seeing you again next time you are in Albuquerque.

All the best,

Noelle Wallace

This was a beautiful old historic hospital that was turned into a beautiful hotel!!! A perfect blend of contemporary luxury for business or leisure. We loved it--clean and sparkly. The staff was unassuming and helpful and breakfast was a wonderful perk--complimentary gourmet breakfast with great coffee. We weren't able to spend much time here as we were visiting for Thanksgiving but i wish we could have--loved it!!!

This hotel provided all the amenities of home-away-from-home experience. The breakfast service was beyond expectations and one staff member, Ms. Arianna, especially captured the persona and the ambiance of this hotel. After learning our breakfast menu request on the first day, she would provide those options for each of our remaining days there, as well as appropriately guide us to trials of other breakfast delights. I look forward to visiting Albuquerque in the near future again and lodging at the Hotel Parq Central, mainly due to my accommodation and service at this Hotel was very memorable.

I had a very early flight out of Albuquerque, so decided to spend the night instead of driving from Santa Fe. What a treat! The room decor was beautiful. The renovation a total success. The attention to detail by housekeeping and ownership is apparent at every turn. Big TV and refrigerator for my early morning breakfast at 5am. Loved the apothecary amenities and the larger size given then most hotels.

This hotel gets the details just right. Breakfast is great, beds are terrific, staff is friendly and helpful. The location is great. This is our go-to in ABQ. You won't be disappointed. I have seldom been to hotels where the staff works so hard to get things right. Plus, the bar on the roof is the best in town. A+

We can't wait to stay here again. The staff was very accommodating (even in a situation where we were at fault, not them), efficient, and pleasant. The room was CLEAN (our top priority), well-appointed, with thoughtful amenities, robes, nice linens, a very comfortable bed, and good towels. The rooftop bar is great, and the location of the hotel is convenient (10 minutes to the airport and not far to restaurants, etc.). Our room was on the third floor, under the rooftop bar area, on the freeway side, and near the elevator, but we had no trouble with noise. We've definitely found our preferred hotel in Albuquerque in this charming, city-spa styled boutique hotel.
