“Best Hotel I have ever stayed in”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

My wife and I were here on business for 4 days and ended up by chance in the hotel. Super clean, very friendly but not overly, every member of the staff was great. The room was over the top clean and everything in place. It was not the largest or fanciest place we have ever stayed but overall the best of all stays period. Attention to detail is the key to their overall rating by us.

Room Tip: Ask for a suite with a sitting room.

We stayed here three nights with our little grandson for a zoo/museum/aquarium visit. This renovated hospital, now an upscale hotel, is classy and charming. After learning that the main building does not have bathtubs, I requested a room in the former doctors' quarters. Our room was wonderful. We were on the first floor with windows on three sides. The décor is soothing and in keeping with the former hospital minimalist nature. We had a king-sized bed, perfect for our little one's comfort zone (and ours). The grounds are attractive, on several levels, and very well kept. The courtyard is gated. There is a fountain and plenty of outdoor seating. (No pool but there is a hot tub.) There is a shady verandah at the entry to the unattached "doctor's quarters" where we stayed. There is no elevator to the second floor of this building.

We made an elevator trip up to the main building's rooftop lounge and the view is fantastic. The breakfast room and lobby are attractive. There are several other public rooms with relaxing seating and décor. Breakfast is no big deal, although the pastries are upscale and one hot choice is quiche. The servers are helpful and friendly.

The days we were there, the housekeeping was not superior, however. We were missing bath toiletries and a mat. Our room was not made up until late afternoon. A pile of towels was in the hallway for over 24 hours, as was a used wine glass in the attractive family room. We didn't use the family area, but it would be nice for reading or playing board games.

I gave the hotel an excellent rating because it is truly unique in this city and the outdoor spaces are so attractive. I'm sure the rooftop lounge is popular also. There were very few other children around, so it would be a nice anniversary spot. Don't let the location next to a freeway put you off, it just makes the hotel easy to find. No noise except we heard a train whistle one morning.

Room Tip: We had an end room that was big and cheerful in the doctors' quarters behind the main building.

My husband and I got married at this hotel over Memorial weekend and were so happy with the overall day and weekend. The staff was outstanding and went out of their way to make sure we were happy, our guests were happy & that we all had everything we needed. The venue looked beautiful for the wedding. All of our guests were so happy with the hotel in general and the rooms:) It was the exact atmosphere we were looking for for our special day. Our honeymoon suite was amazing! We had a few guests that wanted to upgrade their rooms & the hotel made sure to do it with no hassle. Thank you so much Hotel Parq!

Superb accommodations and staff. Visited Albuquerque for a family wedding, (held here,) and the guests all agreed that this place was a real gem (cocktails, dinner and accompanying services plus the beauty of the venue.)

Will definitely stay here again. The rooftop bar, open to the public, offers an added bonus!

Room Tip: All rooms have beautiful views and are extremely quiet.

Stayed at the Hotel Parq Central over the Memorial Day weekend. It was an excellent stay. I agree with the phrase used before, "urban oasis". It has a certain peace and tranquility once you come through the doors. Very friendly staff, great breakfast, beautiful view from the rooftop bar. what else can one say? When in Albuquerque staying at the Parq Central is a must. And don't forget to bring your dog!

We spent a weekend at this hotel and enjoyed the experience. The staff was always smiling, welcoming, and friendly, whether in the lobby or passing in the halls. (My husband noted that people in Albuquerque were friendly in general.) It was fun to stay in a hotel that had once been a hospital. The hangtags for the doors had cute medical sayings, like "Quarantined", "All Tied Up", "Nurse, Please Make Up My Room", etc. We were shown to our suite by one of the staff. There was an attractive sitting room that concealed a mini-fridge in the stand that held a flat screen TV. The bathroom was large with a very nice glass enclosure shower with a bench seat. However, it would take a while for the water in the shower to get hot. I remedied that the second morning by turning on the water and letting it warm up before getting in. The toiletries were C. O. Bigelow Apothecaries products (again tying in the medical theme). The bedroom had a king size bed with a comfortable mattress, and less comfortable (not as supportive as I like) pillows, and a cabinet on which a second flat screen TV stood. Our room faced the street, and we would hear motorcycles, but not much other traffic. In the mornings, we could see hot air balloons taking off into the sky, which was nice. There was at least one, if not perhaps two, wedding receptions our first day there, which made a longer wait for the elevator. We ate the provided breakfast one morning; it was more of a continental breakfast with mostly cold foods and pastries, although the fruit tart I had was warm. We went up to the rooftop deck one evening to see the view and take a couple of photos, but we did not order anything from the bar. We had a rental vehicle, so we did not need to use the hotel shuttle, but we heard other guests making arrangements to be dropped off / picked up in the area. We found the location convenient for sightseeing. On the second day, housekeeping did not leave us any hand towels, but when we asked for some at the front desk, they had them left in our bathroom while we were out. Also, another nice touch, was that bags of ice were left in drawers on the second and third floors for guests' use. Both days we were there the drawers on the third floor were empty, but we found bags on the second floor. If returning to Albuquerque, I would not hesitate to stay at Hotel Parq Central again.

We do apologize about the lack of ice available on your floor- we have been training some new members of our housekeeping team and your feedback is very helpful in this training.

The staff was amazing, very friendly and available to answer any questions. Our suite was exquisite, very clean and comfortably decorated. The rooftop bar was relaxing and had a great offering of cocktails and tappas. The breakfast in the morning was simple yet elegant. A great offering of pastries, quiche, fresh fruit, juices, breads etc. We were lucky enough to stay here two evenings and thoroughly enjoyed both nights. Everyone should stay here and relax-simply fabulous!
