Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 October 2012

We spent a night at Hotel Parq Central prior to flying home from New Mexico. Although the room was small, it was very clean and had great products available. The staff was very friendly and went out of their way to make us feel at home. We had a quick bite at the Apothecar
Restaurant on the rooftop. The view of the sun setting over Albuquerque was incredible, as was our waitress, Allissa. She took great care of us. We had just spent a few days at El Monte Sagrado in Taos, which was extremely disappointing, and weren't sure what to expect at Parq Central. We were hoping we wouldn't have to deal with dried vomit on our bedroom floor and inadequately prepared food, as we did at our former accommodations, and were pleasantly surprised. I would highly recommend both the hotel and the rooftop lounge--especially if Allissa is working. What a great place for tired travelers.

Room Tip: The odd number rooms overlook a lovely patio with a fountain.

I just completed my third wonderful stay at the Hotel Parq Central. While it is not a traditional 5-Star like the Four Seaons, its outstanding service, friendly staff, and great value for the money make it is 5-Stars in my book. The free continnetal breakfast buffet is unique and very tasty. We did have one issue with the air conditioner, which the staff addressed very promptly. All-in-all, it was another great stay!

This was a hospital from the early 1900's that has been very tastefully redone into a very charming hotel. Everything was wonderful and we felt taken care of. The roof top lounge is very nice with comfy seating where you can sit back and enjoy the sunset or city lights. As soon as you walk into the hotel you feel like you're in a relaxing atmosphere that takes you back in time. There are minimal non-threatening hospital ghosts. Would definitely stay here again.

Our only complaints (suggestions) are that you have to walk outside of the gated area across the parking lot to get to the fitness center and there is no restroom out there. They only have one luggage cart for 70+ rooms. They also need handicap accessible doors that have a button that you push to open the main entrance and courtyard entrance.

Dear w f,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your stay with us at Hotel Parq Central. We are delighted that you found the restoration of our building to be tastefully done. It pleases us to know that you felt well taken care of during your time with us and that the atmosphere was relaxing. The Apothecary Lounge offers an unparalleled view of the city and we are happy you were able to enjoy that in one of the comfy lounge chairs. We appreciate your recommendation for an additional luggage cart and for the handicap accessible doors at the main entrance and the courtyard entrance. Unfortunately working within an existing structure, the fitness center fit best in the far east building of our campus and there was not enough space to add a restroom.

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

All the best,

Noelle Wallace

Driving from florida to California we wanted somewhere clean and comfortable to crash for the night. We arrived @2am; hotel staff was courteous and helpful. The lobby was welcoming with its modern, but vintage decor. Loved the complimentary lavender bath products. The bed was so comfortable it was hard to drag ourselves downstairs for the complimentary breakfast. One of the front desk personnel, Jeremiah recommended Sadie's for lunch. It was to die for. Overall, amazing stay. I will stay here again for sure.

I visited the Parc Central for 2 nights in September while in town on business. This is a great place to stay. Nice room, great breakfast and a fabulous rooftop bar. Excercise room is adequate as is the business center. The common areas inside and outside provide nice places to meet and relax. The staff is polite and generally helpful. My only complaints: (1) the shuttle to the airport does not take passengers until 7:30 am; and, (2) the staff at the front desk and the Apothecary Bar upstairs was completely clueless when asked to recommend a restuarant. Somebody needs to at least give these people a few names of decent restuarants in the area. There is no full service restuarant in the hotel, so we expected a completely objective and reliable answer from the staff of a 4 diamond rated hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the Interstate highway facing the west.

Dear wlj123,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your stay with us at Hotel Parq Central. We are glad that you feel that Hotel Parq Central is a great place to stay, complete with nice rooms, great breakfast and a fabulous rooftop bar. We are pleased that the fitness and business centers met your needs and that the common areas around property provided you with a place to relax. We are sorry that the shuttle service hours were inconvenient for you. Unfortunately we do not at this time have the staffing to provide shuttle service before 7:30 am or after 10:30 pm; we hope to grow into offering the shuttle service at all hours, but being only 2 years old, it is not feasible at this time. We are sincerely sorry that the front desk agents and staff in the Apothecary were unable to provide you with recommendations of restaurants in the area. Your feedback has provided us with the opportunity to educate all of our staff about the surrounding area, ensuring that each member is ready to provide a recommendation to our guests to help make them make the most of their time in Albuquerque.

We appreciate you choosing to stay with us at Hotel Parq Central and we look forward to seeing you again next time you are in Albuquerque.

All the best,

We were intending to stay at this hotel for a recent visit to ABQ and were quite pleased when it was offered as an escape on SniqueAway for the time we were going to be there. We used the opportunity to book a suite instead.

This hotel is exactly right in every way. It looks and feels elegant yet it is comfortable. It has history but includes modern touches. It is stylish but homey at the same time. Hard to accomplish but a pleasure to find.

The rooms are a good size. They are clean and bright but did not feel at all sterile. Although given the history of the building that might have been so in a previous life. The Wifi was easy to access and worked every time. The breakfast was excellent and offered a good array of choices.

There is plenty of parking on site, and within a good distance from an exterior door. Even though the hotel is beside the interstate, noise never seemed to be a problem whether in the room, on the back grounds, or the rooftop bar. And speaking of the bar, it lives up to the advertised view as well as offering well prepared drinks and food.

The staff were wonderful. Everyone pleasant and welcoming; helpful and informed. We would definitely recommend this hotel and wold sty there again.

I spent two nights in this hotel on business and I loved it. The surrounding area is not as inviting as the hotel, but it is getting better and has a few nice places to eat within walking distance. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The breakfast is also nice. The gym is functional, but small. The rooms are great; very nice modern design that calms you after a long day. The hotel also has a shuttle that will pretty much take you anywhere in Albuquerque and will pick you up and drop you off from/at the airport. The terrace on the roof top is fantastic: a nice view of Albuquerque and you can sit and relax with a drink from the bar. A nice plux is the wireless; it is free for guests (none of that annoying pay extra for access) and the computers with printers in the lounge area for printing a boarding pass or document. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: If you can, get a room on the backside of the hotel. Central Avenue is not a very busy street, but...

Dear Dutchman21,

Thank you for choosing to stay with us during your recent visit to Albuquerque. We are delighted that you loved the hotel and saw the growth potential of our neighborhood, even enjoying some of the nearby restaurants. Our staff strives to make each guest feel at home during their time with us and we are happy to know that you found each member to be friendly and helpful. We are pleased that you enjoyed the breakfast and the gym. It is important to us that you are able to relax in your guest room and it delights us to know that you found your guest room to be calming after a long day. The shuttle service is something we enjoy offering, as it eliminates the hassle of parking and finding your way in a new city. We are happy that you enjoyed the views from the rooftop and found the complimentary wireless access helpful- we think it would be ridiculous to charge our guests to be productive while staying with us.

We appreciate you taking the time to write a review of your stay with us and we look forward to seeing you next time you are in Albuquerque!

All the best,

Noelle Wallace
