“Great Experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2013

This unique hotel is a wonderful palce to stay. It has a wonderful breakfast included with the room, the roof-top bar is really cool, the building is one of a kind, but the the thing that makes the Parq Central so special is the staff. It is the most friendly, courteous, and helpful staff that I have ever experienced at a hotel for its price range, which truly made our stay special.

Dear Stephen C,

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review from your recent stay. We truly appreciate it.
We are so happy you enjoyed the atmosphere of the hotel and addressed it as being unique. Hotel Parq Central is unique in every sense of the word, including our staff. We are simply delighted that you felt the staff helped to make your stay special, that is exactly what we aim to do here at Hotel Parq Central. Along with our staff, the ladies in the parlor work very hard to provide the best breakfast for each guest, we are so happy your breakfast was such a pleasant, experience. The Apothecary lounge is perhaps the most unique hotspot of the hotel, and home to stunning views and creative drinks. Thank you so much for checking out the Albuquerque views and taking in all we have to offer. There is no place quite like The Apothecary. We are delighted to have made your stay memorable.

Thank you for choosing Hotel Parq Central as your place to stay. We look forward to seeing you again!

All the best,

Noelle Wallace

We found the hotel as lovely as everyone says it is. The various displays in the halls were attractive and interesting. From hatboxes to aromatherapy, to vintage doorknobs, it was much more entertaining than a typical hotel hallway.

The staff was the most impressive part of the hotel for us. All the desk staff we interacted with appeared quite young, but the level of professionalism we encountered has been unmatched anywhere. They were friendly, respectful, approachable and endlessly helpful. We had bikes stored in the bell room and no one ever seemed the least bit put out when getting our bikes out or putting them away.

We also appreciated that when we left the do not disturb sign on the door the whole time we were there, we didn't get called to ask about servicing the room. We don't need our room cleaned every day and appreciate not being bothered about it like some hotels do.

The sunset views from the Apothecary Lounge were awesome. Service there was excellent as well.

The only drawback to this hotel is the nearness to the freeway. People in Albuquerque sure do love their motorcycles and revving their engines at 3:00 am. However that would not stop us from staying again and recommending the hotel to others.

Room Tip: Ask for a room furthest from the road.

Dear Mslia,

Thank you so much for taking a moment of your time to write a review upon your recent stay with us. We truly appreciate the feedback.
We are absolutely delighted you enjoyed and took such interest in the intricate and historic details of our interior! The hotel is truly unique, along with the staff. We do so appreciate such a complimentary nature in which our staff was addressed in your review. We strive to serve guests with excellence, in which we uphold as a standard upon each guest’s stay. Keeping your bikes safe is just one of many small steps our staff takes in creating a personal, and enjoyable experience for you. Our maintenance staff takes pride in adhering to guests needs. Most specifically, a guests requests for privacy. We are thrilled you felt so at ease. The Apothecary Lounge is a beautiful way to truly take in the city and there just isn’t quite anything like it. Thank you for taking the time to appreciate the wonderful views as we do.
We apologize for the noise heard by the freeway, as our location can be noisy due to close proximity to the interstate. Our staff would be more than happy upon your next reservation, to place you in a room of your choice, a little further away from the freeway.

Above all, we thank you for staying with us at Hotel Parq Central. We look forward to seeing you again soon!

All the best,

Noelle Wallace

The building is over 80 years old and has an aura and character that the architects enhanced and brought into the modern future. They used relics found in the building as decor (check out the fitness center and the old boiler room door on the wall!). Beautifully decorated, with up-to-date security features, wi-fi (and awesome business center), and comfort. Sun shades in the windows allow mutetd light and privacy. Light-blocking drapes are there for sleeping. The baths are spa worthy. Convenient location to I25 and just a hop to I40. "Jeremiah" went out of his way to make us comfortable. I can't rave enough. If you appreciate a beautiful update to a grand old building, you must stay here. Grab a bite down the block at "Holy Cow" - their salads and wine selections are a step up from ordinary.

This is a gorgeous hotel, they really did a nice job decorating - very elegant. The room and bathroom is very chic. It is on the edge of town, but if you have a car, definitely stay here ! There is a rooftop bar/restaurant which was very cozy.

Room Tip: Choose one overlooking the courtyard. There is a charming fountain and beautiful landscaping.

My wife and I just spent 3 nights at the Parq Central and were very pleased with our experience as it gave our visit to the city a totally positive tone. We have been fortunate to stay in many 4 and 5 star hotels throughout the world and this hotel measures up in every respect except the one in which it excels; the staff. They are very friendly, helpful and genuine in their efforts to assist their guests. We didn't visit the rooftop lounge, so can't comment on that. The only suggestion we can offer is that they analyze the hvac system operation/engineering as our room on the second floor experienced an intermittent thudding noise in the duct system, but the maintenance man was unable to diagnose the problem during our visit. Otherwise this was a wonderful stay for us. Hope that they continue to thrive and succeed with this hospitality model.

We look forward to visiting the Hotel Parq Central on our way to California from Toronto. My wife has allergies to smells and the hotel is always helpful to fix the room to her requests. We even have a favourite room that we ask for. They have coffee on each floor in the morning if you just want to sneak out in your pajamas. Also a refrigerated drawer near the elevator with ice pre-packed for your use.

Its an old renovated hospital so the rooms are very quiet with solid construction. Beautiful rain shower and a mattress to die for. The breakfast is very good with attentive staff. You can get a bag to go if you want.

A shout out to Allison on the front desk. She showed us to our room and answered all our questions. The staff is very, very good.

So simply the BEST!

Room Tip: Try for a room at the back of the hotel. You have a view of the courtyard and the hot tub.

I can't explain how wonderful our experience was at the Hotel Parq Central. My wife and I were staying there for a few nights on our way to California from Texas. The service was wonderful and the hotel was beautiful. Every thing was perfect: the room, the roof top bar, the breakfast, the dinning area. We loved the story of the how the hotel was converted from an old hospital. Every single staff person we encountered was AMAZING.

Room Tip: Get one of the larger suites.
