Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 December 2013

Our room was absolutely lovely--spacious, well-appointed, comfortable bed. The hotel shuttle service to the center of town, or wherever else you might like to go, was terrific. The staff was extremely accommodating, the breakfast was fine, but not superb. The hotel is a former hospital, built in the 1920s. The solarium room, where I could envision patients enjoying a bit of sun, was a gorgeous space. The décor is subtle and beautiful, without being overly "southwestern." The rooftop lounge offered great views, but the late evening crowd is noisy. There are a few good eating spots within walking distance, but the hotel is a few miles from the downtown attractions.

The hotel flyer starts ..."establishing a new standard of luxury in Albuquerque. " How true! The hotel is a historic property, the Santa Fe railroad hospital. The exterior is absolutely beautiful, welcoming and reflects the historic time period. The interior is ultra modern and luxurious. The staff is welcoming, everything is spotless, it is quiet and restful.

Loved the 24 hour brewed coffee available in the morning room. Breakfast was included in the cost and much more than the continental fare we expected. Quiche, cereal, toast, hard boiled eggs, juices, bakery quality pastries...I can keep going, but you have the idea.

I can't stay enough about the Parq. Loved all of it!

I have stayed at Parq Central a few times while visiting family in ABQ. In my experience, it is without question the best hotel in the city. Unfortunately, ABQ has a virtually unlimited supply of low end motels and hotels - and very, very few decent options. Parq Central is the exception. Very nice, very clean hotel with wonderful rooms. I have stayed in both the standard rooms and the "cottages", and both are lovely. Only consideration with the cottages is that that they are physically seperated from the main building, so they require a very short walk outdoors from the main building (not likely an issue unless elderly and in the dead of winter).

I travel very frequently for work, and I can say the Parq Central is one of the best values I've come across...and by that I mean I would pay a lot more than they charge.

Unless you're willing to drive to Santa Fe, there is no better accomodation to be found in ABQ...period.

We stayed here while visiting for the New Mexico Bowl and were very happy with everything. The rooms were comfortable and spacious, staff were extremely friendly, and the rooftop lounge was a great place to hang out and grab a drink. The shuttle service took us to and from the game and they were more than accomidating. I would stay here everytime I am in Albuquerque.

I had a friend flying into Albuquerque later in the evening and thought it might be nice to stay in town before taking the train back to my home in Santa Fe. We booked two nights at the Parq Central and, as always, the experience was a delight. The staff were amazingly helpful, with front desk staffer Matt walking me to three different rooms to identify the right suite with the right view for two. The rooftop bistro bar accommodated my special request to have a warm meal waiting for my friend (even though their kitchen was closing before he would arrive). The big warm robes came in handy for visiting the jacuzzi. And the breakfast buffet satisfied my friend with a large assortment of baked goods and green chili quiche. Finally, it's the little touches that make staying at Hotel Parq Center a five star experience---fresh coffee on each floor (handy with my friend from coffee capital Seattle) and a shuttle driven by Emma (offering a a fountain of helpful tourist tips) that made little road trips around ABQ easy as a car-free guest. Housekeeping deserves an award for keeping our room spotless and supplied with products that made showering a near-spa experience. Thanks for being an oasis in the heart of the desert. I will see you next time I have a friend flying in.

Room Tip: I like the view of the garden and residence.

This one-time sanitarium, long derelict and in use as a film location, has been transformed into one of Albuquerque's -- make that New Mexico's -- premier boutique hotels. It's right off I-25 in the heart of the city, but once inside the doors all sense of urban stress fades away. We spent two nights there to celebrate our anniversary, and couldn't have had a more restful stay. The rooms in the main building are spacious and comfortable, and surprisingly quiet given the proximity to a major highway. Staff are always polite and attentive, and there's a good feed at breakfast. The rooftop bar is clearly a popular hang for locals and affords a great sunset view of the city. We'll be back -- soon!

We stayed for several days before Thanksgiving at the Hotel Parq Central and could not have been happier with our stay. We stayed in the main building close to the breakfast room and the first floor lounge with a fire place. The daily breakfasts were very good with a wide variety of breakfast selections.Our room was very comfortable with a fine bed and an outstanding bathroom. The desk staff were outstanding. They answered our every request and questions. The property was wonderful with a great patio and garden off the breakfast room. There was also several computer available for customers use. The roof top "Apothecary" was a great place to have a few drinks and view of the city. We were sorry to leave The Hotel because our stay was exceptional.
