Reviewed March 16, 2013

This hotel is nicely designed and well run, with a friendly and helpful staff. Common space -indoor and out - is comfortable contemporary. Free breakfast is quite good. Location is convenient, but seemed "transitional." But much of Albuquerque seemed that way (don't get me wrong - I like the town).

Stayed here several times during the week for business. Very nice hotel...all rooms completely remodeled, modern, well appointed, etc... Bar on roof has great views of sunset/stars...food i would describe as good bar food/appetizers...but limited menu. Neighborhood I was worried about on my first visit or two...but candidly found out there are 4-5 great restaurants / bars 2-3 blocks down the street from the hotel....and i felt very safe walking every time. Stayed in several other hotels in the area over the last 2 years and hands down this is BY FAR the best place to stay if you go to ABQ. Recommend calling for rate as Internet may not have best price for frequent travelers.

Wonderful staff, great amenities, beautiful rooms, all day coffee, every detail was covered. It was one of the very nicest hotels with a historical interest we have ever been in. Thank you to Kyle (the young lady who checked us in and then drove us to our restaurant) for SUPERB service.

Room Tip: We had room 221..larger with a view on the veranda. Our second night (later in the week) was on the...

The Hotel Parq Central is a former hospital, likely built around 1920. it has been wonderfully converted into a very nice boutique hotel. Cool roof top bar. The staff were wonderful. The rooms are not spacious, but they are well appointed. Excellent shower. The hotel is conveniently and centrally located right off the highway. It is not in downtown, but perhaps 6 blocks away. I will definitely stay here on future trips.

We are happy that you thought the shower was excellent and that the location was convenient for you during your visit to Albuquerque.

This use to be a hospital back in the day. The rooms were spacious and the lobby was clean and inviting. The all day coffee service was a nice touch and the breakfast included in the room price was a wonderful value and had great variety. The roof top bar/lounge was a nice touch.

Room Tip: If you like hot yoga, take a class right next door!

I have just spent the last 9 days in New Mexico and Colorado. An amazing gift from a dear friend, I was able to experience Santa Fe, Pagosa Springs's Hot Springs, Skiing at Wolf Creek, a side trip to Colorado Springs and finally Albuquerque for my last day before heading home.From the first minute I arrived every detail has been special. I didn't think it could get any better... Until we arrived at Hotel Parq Central. The staff was exceptional but personal too. The Building, it's Decor and Roof Top Restaurant are by far my favorite hotel experience. This place is a must for those traveling through Albuquerque as well as a destination trip just... because.
Thank You Hotel Parq Central for making the end of my trip to the Southwest PERFECT

The hotel is a wonderful refurbished old hospital!!! As a result our suite was a bit odd room sizes and the windows are up higher on the wall so it was hard to see out of them while seated on the couch.... also traffic noise was something of a problem the first night. BUT with all that said, the staff was great, breakfast amazing, and the bed and linens were divine!!!
I will return next time I am in ABQ

Dear Carol Q,

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us at Hotel Parq Central. We are so happy to know that you enjoyed the renovation of our property and found the staff to be great! We are sorry that you were unable to see out of the window in your guest room from the couch in your room and that traffic was a bit of an issue your first night. We do have suites on the second floor and in the Residence that would allow you to see out of the window from the couch and also face the courtyard as opposed to the front of the hotel, which would eliminate all traffic noise. We are delighted that the linens were divine and that you enjoyed the breakfast each morning.

We appreciate you choosing to stay with us at Hotel Parq Central and we look forward to seeing you again soon!

All the best,
