“Feeling pampered ...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

The hotel's interior design must have been updated recently because the lobby and surrounding rooms were just stunning - a modern feel in a venerable building. The building is almost a 100 years old and used to be a hospital. It feels more like an old estate, especially the older part in the back where we stayed. There is a "family room" back there which was just beautiful. Our room was big, with windows all around, and a nice view from the bed. Albuquerque is a noisy city with highways surrounding it, but in the back part, it was very quiet. Not sure, if the same is true for the larger and taller front building. Early in the morning, coffee was waiting on a counter in the hallway ... it was so nice to have a cup of coffee in bed and to just enjoy the view. Breakfast was outstanding with quiche and delicious baked goods. We used the hot tub as well which was located in a lush garden. One caveat - cockroaches love the garden, too, and you see some dead ones, since they spray. We also saw 2 tiny ones in our bathroom - not sure if we dragged them in with our bath robes or if they came up through the drain. So if you are squeamish, it might not be for you. Lastly, their roof top patio is a must. It's a prime spot for watching the sun set, and the seats fill up quickly. Very beautiful patio.

Dear BrigitteMMO,

Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a thoughtful review. We absolutely love the back building due to the family room and views of the park so we couldn't be happier that you enjoyed it as well! Thank you so much for pointing out the pest problem we will address the problem. We are glad that you also enjoyed the complimentary breakfast as well as the Apothecary Lounge. We would love to have you back again soon!

All the best,

Yancy Sturgeon

This hotel was probably the cleanest, comfortable hotel I have ever stayed in. The staff was polite and professional. The rooftop was the best part! We will stay again! The beds were comfy and showers were huge!

We stayed at this property for two nights. It was one of the nicest hotels we have been to. The rooms were lovely and very, very clean. The staff was super helpful. Breakfast was great.

We did experience on small hiccup... Our first room did not have adequate AC, even after they sent maintenance up there to fix it. When we ask the desk for options, they moved us to another room (which happened to be a suite). Wow! Talk about customer service.

Also, even though this is considered a deluxe property, they did not nickel and dime you. Parking was free. Internet was free. Breakfast was included.
I hated to leave this hotel, and if I am ever in NM again, I will definitely stay here. We loved the staff and Molly, the front desk dog!

We had an outstanding stay at Hotel Parq Central. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Check in was a breeze. Desk clerk, Kyle, personally walked us to our room. Awesome and hardy breakfast buffet--included quiche. Hotel staff shuttled us down and picked us up at Old Town Restaurant--nice we didn't have to worry about where to park or driving after drinking. Cool rooftop patio off 4th floor bar with a great view of sunset and city skyline.

My fiancee and I had just gotten engaged at Vernon's in the North Valley and were looking for a nice hotel to continue celebrating our very special night in. We originally stopped by hotel Andaluz who wanted a ridiculous $16 to valet park our car or we could walk from a pay for parking garage, I told the valet there forget it we'll take our business elsewhere and we wound up at Hotel Parq Central where the parking was (shocker) free and the concierge upgraded us to a suite for our special occasion. We were given a tour of the grounds and the physicians quarters (all at about 1 am) given 2 free drinks at Apothecary and allowed to privately enjoy a midnight dip in the jacuzzi out back. Our room was beautiful, the bed was comfortable, and the breakfast was scrumptious the next morning. I love, love, love HPC and I wish their wedding packages weren't so expensive because I would have our wedding there in a heartbeat! But thank you HPC for making one of the most amazing nights in my life that much more special. My only disappointment was not seeing any ghosts but who knows maybe next time.
