“When did ABQ get so hip?”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2011

We stayed here for the balloon fiesta in October 2011. This hotel has a beautiful aesthetic. The staff is very friendly and helpful, and they seem really to like where they work. If I find myself in ABQ again, I will definitely stay here. But, I will request a room that faces away from the interstate. You can hear the freeway noise, and a hospital is right across the way, so you can hear sirens, too. I suspect that the hotel will have to install multi-pane windows to address this issue.

The service, room, location and amenities are top rate. The rooftop bar is unique - a view of the sunset followed by the city lights. The facility is entirely modern, but they have done a good job of presenting its interesting history as a TB sanatorium - once a thriving business in New Mexico and an important part of the local history. We're in Albuquerque a lot, so we will be back.

Dear DavyF,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your recent stay with us at Hotel Parq Central. We are so glad that you found the service, room location and amenities to be top rate. The Apothecary does offer a beautiful view of the New Mexico sunset and then the glistening lights of Albuquerque each night and we are happy you were able to take in the roof top scene. We agree that the history of our community is important to preserve and we are glad that you feel the renovation is a representation of the historic merit of the building.

Thank you for choosing to stay with us while spending time in Albuquerque and we look forward to your next visit!

All the best,

Spectacular city view from roof top lounge. Excellent food. Great drinks. Clean and well appointed room. Friendly driver to and from nearby places in upgraded suburban. Lack of onsite restaurant and limited amenities most make it a 3 star but I've stay in 4 stars not nearly as upscale.

Dear radialheadfx,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your recent stay with us at Hotel Parq Central. The Executive King Rooms are spacious and we are delighted that you enjoyed your room. We are also glad that you were able to take in the view and indulge in the menu offered at Apothecary lounge. It is correct that our lack of an onsite restaurant prevents us from being rated as more than a 3 star property. We are in a neighborhood filled with a variety of wonderful, locally owned restaurants, so it was more important to us that our guests experience the local scene and support our neighbors, than to put a restaurant in the hotel. We appreciate you staying with us during your time in Albuquerque and we hope to see you again soon!

All the best,

Noelle Wallace

As other reviewers have stated, this hotel is fabulous. It was quiet, the rooms are fantastic, the staff was great. We stayed for 2 nights ( a sat, and the following fri) and could have not been more pleased with everything.

It's nice to see that some establishments are getting it right. You've got a great place, and fantastic job on the details and renovation.

We will be back..... Thanks to all.... Steve

a unique and a little different hotel. a remodeled hospital. only negative I can offer is that the rooms are a little small. service is great and staff is very nice. if i'm back in the albuquerque area again i would certainly stay there again. The roof top cocktail lounge is pretty cool, especially at sunset.

Dear kenhan,

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us at Hotel Parq Central. We are glad that you appreciate the historic nature of our property and found the level of service to be satisfactory. Our staff enjoys making each guest's experience with us the best it can be. Since we are a hotel built within the structure of a former hospital, each guest room is unique is size and orientation. We have five different room types, beginning with the traditional, the deluxe is a bit larger and the executive is our most spacious room. We also have single bedroom suites with a separate living area. Our cottages are the only new construction on property and are very spacious suites with a private entrance, fireplace and patio. We would love to upgrade you to a larger room on your next visit. We are so happy that you were able to enjoy the views from Apothecary lounge at sunset; New Mexico has amazing sunsets and we love watching our guests take them in.

We appreciate your review and thank you for choosing to stay with us during your visit to Albuquerque. We hope to see you again soon!

All the best,

Noelle Wallace

This is a wonderful hotel that was originally a hospital. The renovation of this new hotel was done with amazing detail and preservation of the original building. The rooms were very clean and very comfortable. The lounge was really nice situated on the top floor with an outside for a great view of the city. You can walk to cafes and shops. The complimentary breakfast was excellent way beyond expectations. I would stay here again with the friendly staff and location. This hotel is a home run. I love the fact they did a lot of the decor wiith vintage hospital items.

Spent a getaway weekend here, and we were greatly impressed by the quiet comfortable room, great nights' sleep, beautiful patio area.--and especially the friendly helpful staff. We really appreciated the warm reception every morning by the girls in the breakfast area. Not to mention the quiche, pastries, and outstanding cup of coffee. Rooftop bar was lively and fun on the weekend evenings.
