“Beautiful, unique and historic property”
Reviewed 10 February 2014

This is a gorgeous hotel with so many beautiful nooks and comfortable crannies. It was once a Santa Fe Railroad hospital and is an amazing building. The location, just blocks from very good restaurants and only a short hop to the airport or train station, is perfect. The room we had was smallish, but very comfortable, with a king bed and was very quiet. The breakfast area is bright and cheerful with lots of room for everyone and a wide variety of choices for a very expanded continental style breakfast. The upstairs lounge is fun and handy for late night snacking. We forgot to bring our bathing suits, but the outdoor jacuzzi looked very inviting. The grounds around the buildings are not at all extensive, but are immaculately maintained. I would love to see it in the summer with plants blooming. It's a treat to stay here. Hope to be back!

Once again, a delightful stay at the hotel. It was a cold, snowy night so a group of us enjoyed a dinner with warm spicy drinks at their Apothecary Lounge. Our waitress was really fun, taking the time to share her insights on "drinks to warm the heart." As always, the shuttle pick up at the train station was on time, the large bed comfy, and the walk in hot shower with body gel most welcoming in the morning. I had a business meeting in the morning at their cafe – enjoying their tasty baked goods, eggs, and coffee. All in all, yet another excellent get away with a hotel that really knows how to get it right–every time.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the park. And the walk in showers are really fun.

The Hotel Parq Central is something special, a cut well above the mostly chain hotels in Albuquerque. My husband initially asked me if I'd gotten a special rate (I hadn't). Minutes later he started listing the things he liked about our "executive" room: four huge, operable, double-hung windows, the size and configuration of the bathroom, and the design and functionality of the furnishings, etc., etc. We both noted and very much appreciated the cheerful, professional young staff; handmade New Mexican Syzygy tiles decorating the public areas; the wine selection and limited but tasty menu at the Apothecary Lounge; lavender-scented bath products; and the surprising variety (quiche!) at the breakfast buffet.

Room Tip: Executive rooms are larger than standard and have windows on two sides -- very pleasant.

Dear NDWHoustonTX,
Please know that being referred to as being a “a cut above” is one of the kindest compliments we have received here at Hotel Parq Central. When we first set out to create our establishment, it was essential to us that our hotel standards remain above the status quo here in Albuquerque. It was a lofty ambition, and one we are proud to see achieved, so again, thank you for the kind words.
As your husband so thoughtfully mentioned, our executive room type remains one of our most popular options here at the hotel. We find that the extra space is especially welcomed by business travelers looking to work directly from their own rooms.
We hope your travels plans bring you back to our wonderful city soon. Thanks for being our guest and we greatly anticipate seeing you again soon. All the best-Matthew Troche

I have stayed here 4 times and we just love it ! The rooms are contemporary , the roof top bar is special - great for photos & fun appetizers . The Parc has a complimentary breakfast buffet that is nice too .
We love the cute pooch who often greets guests upon check- in . The location cannot be better .The management also offers a shuttle service too . All of this and the room rates are very reasonable , which attracted us to the Parc 3 years ago and will keep us coming back each year !!!

Dear Linda S.,
Thank you for the kind words! That “cute pooch” is our fun loving hotel dog Mollie, and she enjoys meeting guests as much as they enjoy meeting her! I bet she is looking forward to you visiting again.
We are tremendously glad to hear you enjoyed The Apothecary Lounge, our rooftop bar. The only thing that can beat our signature cocktails might be the view from up there! We always appreciate when guest choose to return and stay with us year after year. We here at Parq Central are committed to always finding ways to improve our property, so we expect your next visit to be even more memorable! Safe travels and see you soon!
All the best-Matthew Troche

Dear Nuella 01,
It is always a pleasure here at Parq Central to have the privilege to host parents traveling with their children. Remaining an upscale property which still maintaining a welcoming environment for our younger guests is one of the things we truly pride ourselves in here at the hotel. Some of our most treasured compliments have come from children who have absolutely loved their time here at Parq Central.

I do not give five star ratings lightly; almost always I believe there is some room for improvement. Based on TripAdvisor, I was expecting a good experience, but what a delightfully better-than-expected surprise my actual experience turned out to be. An historic hospital-cum-hotel, there's a delightful charm about the place which makes it truly extraordinary in comparison to its typical price-competitive chains. Like the entire property, my room was not just clean, it was impeccable. Without exception, every staff member with whom I had contact was genuinely friendly and enthusiastic about ensuring my satisfaction.

Room Tip: No two rooms are the same, and each looks charming; I don't think you could go wrong with any...

Dear D_Kelly_SCF
We are so glad to hear that we exceeded your expectations! We especially want to thank you for mentioning our staff. Our goal is that the pride we feel in our unique hotel remains evident in the way we treat our customers day in and day out.
More so, in regards to your mention of our hotel experience versus that of typical price-competitive chain, we believe that by remaining an independently owned and operated hotel allows us the privilege to provide a uniquely personalized experience to every guest who walks through our door. A mediocre cookie cutter stay is something we refuse to settle for here at The Hotel Parq Central.
If your travel plans ever bring you back to Albuquerque it would be our deepest pleasure to host you once again. Hotel Parq Central only plans to continue to improve and find new ways to make our hotel experience a top notch experience. Hope to see you soon.

All the best-Matthew Troche

We've stayed here twice after trying the corporate tower hotels and a resort north of town. Very convenient to airport. Beautifully renovated in refreshingly understated design, while maintaining the character of the vintage building. The rooms are nicely decorated with soundproof window glass - although we could see the highway, all that was heard was a faint hum. Watching the sunset with cocktails in hand on the the rooftop terrace is a great experience. The bar seems to be frequented by as many locals as hotel guests. Breakfasts are very good. Looking forward to our next visit to Parq Central.

Dear NJSCME,
Thank you deeply for the kind words. Please know we enjoyed hosting you as much as you enjoyed staying at the Parq Central. Furthermore, thank you specifically for taking the time to notice our soundproof windows. Clearly you have an eye for detail! One of our main goals during construction of the hotel was to create a space removed from the sometime hectic atmosphere of central Albuquerque. Great care was put into selecting soundproof windows which play a huge role in creating the sense of serenity which Parq Central prides itself in.
It means so much to us when guests choose to stay with us time and time again. We genuinely thank you for your continued patronage and we look forward to your next visit!
All the best-Matthew Troche
