“Great hotel, okay neighborhood”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2012

Stayed here overnight before a flight home. Location was convenient both to the airport and to most of the sites in Albuquerque but the area is not very conducive to walking around, especially at night. Aside from that, the hotel itself was spectacular. Lobby was gorgeous, rooms were clean and modern. I think some other reviewers may have found them too small but I thought the size was fine. Would stay here again.

Just stayed with my sisters here for two nights, in two of the King rooms. Nicely appointed, comfy beds, historical inn as it used to be an asylum. It's really updated beautifully but still has its own unique flavor. The outdoor areas, especially the rooftop and lower walled patio are very nice. Breakfast very good. The Apothecary Lounge on the 4th floor opens to a rooftop terrace and the view of the lights in the valley at night is gorgeous. The younger set likes to put on their party dresses and head here. They serve small plates and tapas. The staff is very helpful and friendly also. You'd be crazy not to stay here. (Sorry!)

Room Tip: The Standard Diner is a couple blocks away, creative menu!

I just wanted to say that this hotel far exceeds the level of customer service I was expecting, or have ever experienced in any of my travels by about one hundred percent. Extremely personable, friendly and helpful staff made our stay nothing but pampered and enjoyable. A smaller hotel, the staff was able to get to know our group personally, as well as give us suggestions on how to enjoy our free time in the city. Our group did not have a car, but the Hotel's Complimentary Shuttle Service allowed us to affordably travel to and from our conference daily without having spare the expense on twice-a-day taxis. All facilities were clean and easily accessible, and the rooftop lounge and jacuzzi really hit the spot after a long day. Thank you, Hotel Parq Central for making our stay in Albuquerque so amazing, and if I ever can, I will try my hardest to make it back again!

Special shout-outs to Michael, Leah, Gabe (And Molly!) and everyone else whose names elude me right now who were just a few of the wonderful staff members who worked with us this weekend!

I highly recommend this place - clean, newly rennovated, great service. Our family stayed here for one night and I am SO picky about hotels. It's not like your average chain hotel. Nice bar on the rooftop. Hot yoga across the street. They don't have a restaurant, except for breakfast, but we had a great meal one block away at the something "cow" restaurant. I am a vegetarian and they had several nice options for me as well as good burgers for my fam. Also a nice lunch and cute boutique called Adorn down the street. Can't say enough good about this hotel. It is right off Interstate 25, so if you don't mind that view...but not noisy. Close to airport.

We were impressed by the exquisite attention to customer service. This property is very well kept, super clean and the interior design is tranquil with a lovely color scheme. The exterior is also beautiful with peaceful outdoor areas. There is no pool or hot tub but the quality of the experience is what we will remember. There is no room service but we ordered pizza from a local place on the recommendation of the staff -it was great. The lounge on the fourth floor does not open until 3pm, but the food was great, we had kobe sliders and chicken satay skewers. Everyone we talked to was very concerned about the dress code in the lounge; we found it relaxed and comfortable. Although this property is located near the highway (very easy to find) it is not noisy. The staff went out of their way to accommodate us, they were easy to talk to and made our stay special. I am spoiled for hotel breakfast buffets now-theirs was exceptional. There were three different choices of quiche, many different pastries including chocolate croissants! There were the usual choices of cereal and yogurt, but the oatmeal was in individual containers and all the dishes and silverware were not plastic! There was a lovely assortment of fresh fruit and delicious juices that were in chilled glass pitchers. I saw a family with young children that seemed frustrated and unable to find something the kids would eat but we were thrilled to find such a fresh selection and to get away from the heavy waffle and pancake machines we find at so many hotels now. Altogether this is a terrific hotel and we will be back.

Room Tip: Try the "Doctor's Residence" hardwood floors but no elevator.

Dear BlueberrywinePBR,

Thank you for choosing to stay with us at Hotel Parq Central on your recent trip to Albuquerque. We are so glad that you found the property to be well kept and the design to be tranquil. The grounds are really lovely this time of year and we are glad that you found time to spend in the courtyard and on the rooftop in the Apothecary lounge. We do have a hot tub tucked between the main building and the residence, so we will be happy to show you where it is located on your next visit. The location of the property is near the highway, but we were very conscious of this during the reconstruction and did our best to create a peaceful and quiet environment. We are thrilled that you enjoyed the breakfast so much; this is something we truly enjoy offering our guests each morning.

We appreciate you taking the time to share your experience with us and we look forward to seeing you on your next trip!

All the best,

Noelle Wallace

We just returned from a lovely 3 night stay at HPC. The hotel was chic, immaculate, and plush. The beds are so comfortable and makes for a relaxing getaway. We particularly enjoyed the morning breakfast (my mom loved this), as well as complimentary wi-fi and parking as a guest. The price may be a bit more than other hotels, but it is well worth the cost. We upgraded to a 1 bedroom suite, (there were 3 of us--one being a toddler) which provided us with plenty of space. The best part of the stay was the hotel staff--especially, Mike. The staff was very friendly and tended to your every need. I can't say enough good things about Hotel Parq Central, and I look forward to our future return!

Room Tip: Rooms opposite of Central provide a better view. I would go with 1 bedroom suite--extra space!!

The hotel was immaculately clean, rooms were fine, the service was top notch and the rooftop bar/restaurant/lounge offered good food and drink and great views of the city and sunsets.

When I return I Albuquerque, I'll be staying here again.
