I recently returned to the Hotel Parq Central. This was my third stay at the hotel. As with previous trips, the front desk staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. I usually arrive a few hours prior to standard check-in time, due to my airline's flight scheduling. I've always been fortunate enough to have a room waiting for me. The front desk has always been accommodating. This trip was no different. They staff was able to get me into my room without any wait time.
As for my accommodations, I booked a one-bedroom suite, which features a bedroom off to itself, with a separate living room area with couch and two chairs. There's also a computer desk/work station in the living area. The bathroom featured a large walk-in shower. In the past I've stayed on the south side of the hotel. This time my room was on the north side facing Central Ave., and the freeway. While outside noise was a bit louder than previous trips, it wasn't extremely noticeable, and definitely didn't put a damper on things. I'm a light sleeper and appreciate peace and quite when I'm away from home.
The hotel also has a gym. Unfortunately I've yet to use it. They also serve breakfast in the morning on the first floor (have yet to try this as well). Parking was easy. I returned to my room late Saturday evening and had no problems finding a spot. The only downside to this place, if you can call it that, is the elevator is pretty slow, especially on weekends when folks are going up to the bar (or coming down). Not a deal breaker by any means.
All-in-all, Hotel Parq Central continues to live up to my expectations. The hotel offers up a bit of history in an unconventional setting (having once been a hospital). The staff is friendly, and the Apothecary Bar at the top of the hotel is a nice touch. Parking is easy, it's close to many local attractions, and the airport is a quick trip away.
Rooms on the south side of the hotel, facing away from Central, are quieter.

Thank you for your continued support of Hotel Parq Central. We are always happy to see familiar faces checking in and we are pleased that the service you have received during each of your three stays has been friendly, accommodating and consistent. We are delighted that your suite was comfortable and that the slight street noise did not detract from your experience. We are glad that the amenities included in your rate work well for you from the ease of parking to the breakfast and gym, which we hope you will enjoy on a future trip. We do apologize about the elevator being a bit slower than desired. It is a hydraulic elevator, which is very dependable, but not the fastest. We are thrilled that we have continued to meet your expectations and we hope to continue to see you!
We appreciate you taking the time to write a review of your experiences with us!
