“Unique surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

A unique looking building - the entrance is not obvious and a bit hard to find. Rather close to the highway - didn't find noise to be a problem. The hotel has been cleverly and thoughtfully decorated. Room was clean and comfortable. Roof top bar has great views, staffed with a friendly team. I would definitely stay here again.

What a great asset. This boutique hotel is well appointed and puts the "S" in swanky, stylish and sophistication. The rooms are well appointed, spacious and spotless. The money spent to renovate the hotel was well worth it. Kudos to the architects and designers.

The hotel is perfectly located and priced with easy access to downtown, freeways and the airport. However, you may raise your eyebrow when you see the surrounding community.

Breakfast is included with the hotel stay which is not your run of the mill free breakfast you may be accustomed to at other hotels. There are several restaurants in walking distance. I ate at an upscale diner which was great. I later learned the diner was featured on Guy Fieri's tv show "Diners, Drive-ins and Dives". Also, did I mention parking is free.

Folks, this is the place to stay if you are ever in Albuquerque. What a great find!

This hotel is really unique as it's a renovated hospital with a really interesting layout. The rooms aren't huge but they are cozy, clean, and very comfortable. The bathrooms were quite nice and offer high end toiletries. We enjoyed cocktails at the rooftop bar, it's a great spot at sunset and seems to attract a lively crowd. Service was a bit slow up there but it seemed like they had just one waitress trying to handle a lot of people. The hotel staff was friendly and eager to please, everyone makes an effort to greet you and ask how your day is going. Breakfast offered a variety of items and there's a nice patio outside the dining area. The only down side is the gym, it's small and dark with just a few cardio machines but it's fine for a quick workout. The hotel is located right off the highway but we didn't notice any extra noise. We were really happy with this choice and would stay again.

Great hotel with amazing staff! Stay away from the cocky manager Yancy. He was drinking in the bar making ladies feel uncomfortable and on top of that heard female employees speaking to one another about how creepy and unsettling he was to be around.

I just spent a few nights at the Hotel Parq Central in Albuquerque. I have stayed a couple of times in the past, as well. Once again, it was a delightful spot. The hotel is historic structure in a renovated railroad hospital. As a result, the structure is interesting. And, the renovation was extremely well done. The hotel is nicely decorated and absolutely spotless. The rooms are bright, unique, nicely furnished and very cozy. The top of the line toiletries are also a treat. Oh yes, they have a rooftop bar with amazing views of the city and the surrounding mountains. A nice breakfast is served each morning (quiche, fresh fruit, fresh breads/muffins and yogurt). In addition, they provide fresh coffee on each floor. A nice touch.....and, the staff is exceptional...friendly and helpful and very professional. My only real criticism is the fitness room which is quite small and a bit claustrophobic (no windows or natural lighting). Having said that, I really do appreciate this hotel's attention to detail and consistency on all levels. It is a great place for a business or pleasure stay while in Albuquerque.

Dear verde-trekkers,

Thank you for continuing to stay with us at Hotel Parq Central when you visit Albuquerque; we are always happy to see a familiar face checking in and to welcome you back! We are delighted that you enjoy the property and find the staff to be exceptional. We are sorry that the fitness room is smaller than hoped for- working with a historic structure did not allow us much more room for this amenity. We are glad that you enjoy the views from the rooftop and the breakfast each morning.

We appreciate you taking the time to write a review of your stays with us and we look forward to your next visit!

All the best,

Noelle Wallace

A beautifully remodelled former hospital boutique hotel offers excellent rooms and amenities. What makes it exceptional is the superb service from every member of staff we met. Friendly, efficient and dedicated to making the stay the best it can be, I highly recommend it.

Had a great time here. Check in was a breeze, greeted by the managers sweet faced dog, Molly, which was a delight in that I was missing my fur kids and it gave me my first sense of the hotel. I was escorted up to a lovely room on the 3rd floor that was clean, roomy, historical, and comfortable. That night I didnt even have to leave the property I went up to the rooftop terrace for a glass of wine and a beautiful view of the city. I wandered to the inside bar to watch the NBA Finals, have dinner and a nice chat with the new brunette bartender. I had the Chx Sliders and they were just enough and quite tasty. In the morning I went and used the gym, I found it clean with brand new expensive equipment. I felt delighted and rested at check out. Thank you to the wonderful staff at the hotel you made this property shine!!!

Dear Colleen O,

Thank you choosing to stay with us at Hotel Parq Central. We are delighted that check-in was a breeze and that Molly was able to greet you and provide you with a piece of home while you were away from your fur kids. Our housekeeping team ensures that the rooms are kept in pristine condition, so we are so glad that your guest room was clean, roomy and comfortable. We are pleased that you enjoyed the lounge on the rooftop and conversation with Salena- she is a delightful addition to our team. The NBA Finals this year were very exciting and we are happy that you were able to catch one of the games in the lounge, while trying out our new menu with the chicken sliders. We are happy that the fitness center worked well for you. Most of all we are thrilled that you felt rested at check out- too often traveling can leave you feeling exhausted, so we are happy to have provided you with rest. Our staff strives to make each guest feel at home and we are glad that you feel our team makes the property shine.

We appreciate you taking the time to write a review of your recent stay with us at Hotel Parq Central and we look forward to seeing you again soon!
