Reviewed January 2, 2012

We recently stayed for two nights to celebrate my birthday, and the lodging was well chosen - perfect. The hotel is conveniently located with easy access to downtown, UNM and Nob Hill; though it's next to I25, there was no noise from the freeway. The hotel is beautiful and has been tastefully restored and decorated - with a great deal of attention given to detail. The staff were friendly, gracious and accommodating. Our stay was a real pleasure, and we will be staying at HPC again!

We have been there for 3 nights. We stayed in a mini suite: the room was pretty small but very comfortable . Room furnitures seems to be a little bit cheap but overall the idea that this was a real hospital have been maintained very well. Everything seems to be clean but my wife complained about her white socks that became pretty dirty after a couple of days of walk in the room...
The breakfast room ( the hotel doesn't have a restaurant ) is very basic and need more pictures, better furniture etc to get a warmer feeling.
Hotel staff are extremely young but very friendly and with a positive attitude .
Wifi , parking and breakfast are included.
Overall a fine hotel that need some fine tuning .

My husband and I stayed over Thanksgiving weekend. We couldn't have been more pleased with our experience. The location is central with easy access to the airport, I-25, UNM, and the historic center. We had requested a standard room that was in a quiet part of the hotel. Upon arriving, we were told they would upgrade us to a suite for a very small charge because the more quiet rooms were full. I never saw a regular room but will upgrade to a suite on my next visit because it was such a great room. We had a living room that was so tastefully decorated. The bedroom was fairly large and the bed extremely comfortable. The bathroom was the real stand out because it was huge with a very large shower. Everything was in our room was spotless. You can tell the staff takes a lot of pride in the hotel. One of the staff memebers (Bart?) showed us around and explained all the ammenities in our room. He really went above and beyond. All the staff members were so friendly and eager to provide recommendations and directions. I would also higly recommend the upstairs bar. The drinks and small plates were wonderful. This is an excellent hotel and I hope to return soon.

This hotel has under-stated elegance, friendly staff and the most comfortable bed we have ever slept in. The breakfast had a wide variety of choices such as quiche, fresh fruit and savory and sweet croissants. The coffee was excellent. We were able to invite our family to eat with us at breakfast which was convenient and fun. The price is reasonable and the location is ideal to visit downtown and historic old town Albuquerque. It is also near some excellent restaurants. Plus it has convenient access to the I-25. We stayed over the Christmas holiday and the staff left a Christmas stocking filled with treats at every guests door. The lobby is lovely. We intend to make this our hotel of choice every time we visit Albuquerque which is often. Mike and Judy Anderson

Our family has stayed here several times and we are always happy that we did. The hotel is located very near Interstate 25 with good access to UNM and is not far from downtown or the airport. The Hotel Parq Central was recently built in the shell of a former small hospital. Hotel common areas, inside and out, are very nice and well kept. Staff is very attentive and pleasant. The rooms in the main building are very clean and comfortable but to me seem a bit small. (We have never stayed in the two satellite buildings). First floor rooms can be noisier than second floor rooms due to parking lot. The continental breakfast is fine but there is no lunch or dinner service at the hotel although there is a nightclub on the top (fifth?) floor. The hotel has no swimming pool which can be a bummer for kids in the summer. Parking is free.

Room Tip: If you need a very quiet room then avoid the first floor if you can, especially in warm months when...

We are glad that you enjoy the historic merit of the building and find the renovation to be nicely done and well kept. Our staff enjoys taking care of each guest and we are glad that you find each member of the Hotel Parq Central team to be attentive and pleasant. We have five different room types and we will gladly upgrade you to the executive room upon your next stay; these rooms are incredibly spacious.

There are excellent local restaurants surrounding us, so we hope you have been able to experience a bit of the local cuisine during your time with us.
