“Very nice boutique hotel. Wonderful staff.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013 via mobile

The Hotel Parq Central is a former hospital, likely built around 1920. it has been wonderfully converted into a very nice boutique hotel. Cool roof top bar. The staff were wonderful. The rooms are not spacious, but they are well appointed. Excellent shower. The hotel is conveniently and centrally located right off the highway. It is not in downtown, but perhaps 6 blocks away. I will definitely stay here on future trips.

Dear Chartering,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your recent stay with us at Hotel Parq Central.

We are happy that you thought the shower was excellent and that the location was convenient for you during your visit to Albuquerque. When you come to the front desk for your next check-in, we would be delighted to show you our larger room types. Since we built within an existing structure, each of our rooms is situated differently and has a unique square footage.

This use to be a hospital back in the day. The rooms were spacious and the lobby was clean and inviting. The all day coffee service was a nice touch and the breakfast included in the room price was a wonderful value and had great variety. The roof top bar/lounge was a nice touch.

Room Tip: If you like hot yoga, take a class right next door!

I have just spent the last 9 days in New Mexico and Colorado. An amazing gift from a dear friend, I was able to experience Santa Fe, Pagosa Springs's Hot Springs, Skiing at Wolf Creek, a side trip to Colorado Springs and finally Albuquerque for my last day before heading home.From the first minute I arrived every detail has been special. I didn't think it could get any better... Until we arrived at Hotel Parq Central. The staff was exceptional but personal too. The Building, it's Decor and Roof Top Restaurant are by far my favorite hotel experience. This place is a must for those traveling through Albuquerque as well as a destination trip just... because.
Thank You Hotel Parq Central for making the end of my trip to the Southwest PERFECT

The hotel is a wonderful refurbished old hospital!!! As a result our suite was a bit odd room sizes and the windows are up higher on the wall so it was hard to see out of them while seated on the couch.... also traffic noise was something of a problem the first night. BUT with all that said, the staff was great, breakfast amazing, and the bed and linens were divine!!!
I will return next time I am in ABQ

Dear Carol Q,

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us at Hotel Parq Central. We are so happy to know that you enjoyed the renovation of our property and found the staff to be great! We are sorry that you were unable to see out of the window in your guest room from the couch in your room and that traffic was a bit of an issue your first night. We do have suites on the second floor and in the Residence that would allow you to see out of the window from the couch and also face the courtyard as opposed to the front of the hotel, which would eliminate all traffic noise. We are delighted that the linens were divine and that you enjoyed the breakfast each morning.

We appreciate you choosing to stay with us at Hotel Parq Central and we look forward to seeing you again soon!

All the best,

Noelle Wallace

I recently stayed in the Hotel Parq Central while in town for a conference. From the first moments to the last the entire experience was wonderful. The staff are some of the friendliest I have ever encountered - one night the manager even offered to drive my friend to a pharmacy to get some medicine for her sick child. The amenities are superb: complimentary shuttle service anywhere within 3-4 miles, a delicious complimentary breakfast (homemade quiche, fruits, pastries, hard-boiled eggs, breads, yogurts), complimentary coffee 24/7. The rooms are tastefully decorated, comfortable, and clean. The property itself is very well maintained, with a large patio out back and the soft strains of American Standards playing over the sound system. And the hidden gem is the rooftop bar, the Apothecary, with stunning views of downtown and a nice selection of beers, wines, and signature cocktails. Emma and Dominique were particularly helpful staff members. I will definitely be staying here again!

This hotel truly exceeded my expectations throughout my entire stay. The staff was super polite and accommodating from check in to check out. My room was meticulously clean and beautiful. The bar on the 4th floor was a treat. After coming in from an evening out it was nice having the convenience of a bar with great ambiance/atmosphere to relax and socialize in. The location is superb!! Walking distance from a cinema, lots of restaurants, and bars/clubs etc. Considering the location and the fact that our room faced Central Ave it was still very quiet inside. The complimentary breakfast was a huge bonus and delicious. I slept in and was still able to eat breakfast at 10. Oh by the way, I loved sleeping to the ocean ambiance on the ihome alarm clock. I felt right at home. Thank You Hotel Parq for making my stay absolutely wonderful. You have a customer for life!!

Room Tip: My room faced Central Ave and was still very quiet.

What a wonderful choice I made. I needed transportation to UNMHospital and they were there when I needed them. The staff is very friendly, breakfast was perfect and the lounge on the 4th floor served excellent tapas. However, the portions were larger than tapas. I had the standard king room and one of my most important things is a free standing shower which was very ample in size. I would recommend this hotel in any city plus they have a wonderful dog in the pet friendly reception area.

Room Tip: Do not know if there is a pool and I did not have room service although it was offered. My room was...
