“Great Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

I recently stayed here for 10 days with 3 others on a work trip (I'm from Australia).
I have to agree with most of the other reviewers here and say this was an excellently run hotel. The breakfast is great, free wifi, free shuttle bus, laundry facilities (only one machine and dryer though), awesome rooftop bar and the staff were very helpful and friendly. There is even a beautiful border collie dog that stands up at the counter which I found charming.
Although close to the i35 freeway, I did not hear any traffic noise from my room.
It is only 1.6km to downtown, but there is no need to go that far as there are some great restaurants within a few blocks. I can recommend Farinas or Artichokes for dinner and Holy Cow or the Grove for lunch.
Albuquerque is a bit run-down in places, but hopefully places like Parq Central will increase in number and help to lift the whole city.

This is a beautiful hotel. The decor is sparse, tasteful, refreshing. This is my new favorite hotel. While the rooms are not overly large, they are relaxing, bright, and very comfortable. If your particular room seems a bit small, you needn't worry as there are plenty of wonderful spaces in this hotel to relax in. The solarium is beautiful and so peaceful; enjoy the sunshine and good vibes in this gorgeous space. The "living room" has wonderful ambience and the views from the Apothecary Lounge are outstanding. Staff are very helpful, courteous and friendly - can't say enough about this wonderful hotel and the people who manage and staff it. Thanks for the fantastic time in Albuquerque!

I cannot speak highly enough of this place. We booked this hotel at the last minute and we were not disappointed. I've stayed in a lot of hotels over the years and this is the cleanest one I've ever seen. Yes the rooms are smaller than average, but it was very charming. The bathroom is very nice, with nice toiletries. The staff were great and friendly. I would definitely stay here again.

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.

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.
