Our first room was directly under the rooftop bar and the constant banging to and bumping was unbearable so I complained to reception, a lad called Larry, who said he would call me back. Two rings later and the phone went off before I could get there so we went down to reception. Larry said all the other rooms were... More

I stayed here for one night with my fiancé as a pit stop from El Paso, TX to Flagstaff, AZ. The building itself looks a little old, and a little creepy if you ask me. The hotel has a "1920's glam" mixed with "modern" feeling to it. The music they play is very retro and old school, like you're walking... More

Lovely hotel, but few if any services, Bring your own breakfast if you want something other than carbs and a hard boiled egg. I enquired about carb free breakfast ability prior to booking, but clearly their idea is quite different than mine

I used the Parq as base camp while visiting family the week of 10/06/14. Not your standard chain-hotel fare. Created from a hospital built in, it has a charming retro vibe from another era. Every staff person I encountered was bright, responsive, and courteous. Morning coffee and breakfast were something to look forward to each day. I enjoyed just hanging... More

Booked a room for sons 21st bday, having a surprise dessert and drinks on rooftop patio.

We stayed three nights, also for the Balloon Fiesta. The location could not be more 'central' (we visited Nob Hill, Old town, the Petroglyphs and the park & ride for Balloon Fiesta (I suggest the 'Cliffs' location). Loved the hotel, our room was beautiful and spacious and I loved the modern/retro decor. We thought all the staff was friendly and... More

A semi-historic modern rehab, a cool alternative to the standard chain hotels in Albuquerque. Friendly service, great shuttle service, felt like I had discovered something. Rooms are on the small side, and would benefit from improved lighting, but are modern and comfortable. Close to the airport, and at the gateway to downtown.

Stayed here for 3 nights during the Balloon Fiesta. Hotel easy to find, very clean, staff friendly and helpful, great location for the Fiesta and to visit other sites of interest (Sandia mountains, the Nuclear Museum et al) as so close to I25 and I40. Only negatives would be that breakfast somewhat uninspiring and the hotel is a bit noisy... More
