What a surprise! This beautifully restored 1926 hospital to hotel conversion is stunning, and the renovation designer should win an award for taste. From thick towels and excellent block soap, the rooms are handsomely decorated, and their old fashioned windows open 6” up to let in the fresh air. You’ll love the gardens, terraces and rooftop bar, and their breakfast in a bag (due to Covid19). Well worth every penny!
We visit Albuquerque quite often and have stayed in a few hotels in the area, but this hotel has been the best so far. At one time this building was a railroad hospital. It was renovated into a boutique hotel in 2013. The rooms are cleaned and then sealed for protection. Considering the fact that the hotel is close to the freeway, the rooms are very quiet and very comfortable. This is a pet friendly hotel with guest/pet accommodations on the 1st floor. The entire staff were constantly wearing there masks, which ensured us how serious they take the pandemic. The staff was also quite friendly and accommodating. By far, this has been the BEST hotel that we've stayed at in Albuquerque thus far, and we WILL stay here again.
We are on a haunted hotel road trip from Idaho to Virginia. Hotel Parq central was our second stop and my thirteen year old brothers most anticipated as it had previously been a mental hospital. Very nice hotel. Not very paranormal, only scary thing was the robe in the bathroom and boy did that make me jump. The rooms are very comfortable and the staff was very nice. Biggest down side was we had to get 2 separate rooms with our 3 people.
I stayed 2 nights. The first night was great; the second was not. The place is absolutely gorgeous, impeccably designed and decorated, and immaculate. It was once a hospital, almost 100 years ago, and the decor is themed like this (not in a creepy way). Some employees are friendly; others less so, and most aren't particularly intentional about being helpful, the way hospitality employees should be. They're fine. My air conditioning went out on night two. The front desk clerk said he'd reset my AC from there. He didn't. I called again. Then he did. It is morning when I'm typing this, and my room is maybe just now cooling off. It was a long, hot night. Now that I'm on the internet, I've noticed that sites involving guns, ammunition, building the wall, and the right to life are blocked while using their wi-fi. Porn, too - i checked only out of curiosity. I imagine the Parq staff will read this and say, "Good riddance; we don't need his kind staying here." Well the joke's on you. I plan on staying again - the place is remarkably beautiful and in a great location, and I only need to exercise my internet freedom very rarely, and I can use a hotspot. Breakfast was weak, and the exercise room is weak, but you don't stay at the HPC for their breakfast. If you want a charming place near downtown, this is for you. If you require hospitable staff, great food, and like to surf adult or conservative websites, this is not for you.…
A solid old hospital was converted into a beautiful hotel. Despite being located next to I-25 it is amazingly quiet inside the rooms probably due the old construction techniques and materials. It’s a very clean hotel with friendly and efficient staff. Note that guest WiFi is “available” but it doesn’t work.
