Hotel Parq Central
Ranked #3 of 144 Hotels in Albuquerque
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 June 2014

Hotel updated with inviting, yet modern decor. Loved our clean well appointed room. Friendly staff at front desk, breakfast hostesses, and maintenance man (who refused to accept a tip for services). Breakfast offered an array of quiches, muffins, eggs, cereal, and juices - and oh! the pastries! Coffee was excellent and available round the clock. We arrived by train. Free hotel shuttle picked us up at station. Laundry facility on floor a plus.

Room Tip: Request room away from Rooftop bar for quiet accomodations.

I love this hotel! It is intimate, has beautifully appointed rooms and public spaces, a great rooftop bar and an attentive staff. Though it is located near the interstate, it is surrounded by gardens and a nice little park that make up for what could be a big negative. All of that would be enough, but add free parking, free wi fi, a nice continental breakfast, decent prices and a limo ride to wherever you want to go within 3 miles, and you have a winner.
Every morning we took a walk in the park and around the residential neighborhood, greeting the folks sitting on their front porches. It is a great place to unwind and relax. It is my first choice when staying in Albuquerque.

Room Tip: We asked for a room with a view and got a corner room on the second floor of the "Doctors'...

The Hotel Parq Central is a wonderful hotel experience. The hotel is an old Mental Health Institution rich in history. It has been totally refurbished and is beautiful. The rooms are well appointed and the beds, bath and sitting areas very comfortable.
The price is extremely reasonable and it is in the perfect location for access to the freeway system and downtown.
The only issue we had our entire stay was a Saturday night parking problem. We came back to the hotel and there was a wedding reception which had consumed all of the parking spots on the lot. My suggestion would be to have the hotel offer a valet for street parking for event guests so that the other guests can self park in the lot when there are big events. This was the only disappointment that we had and were a little surprised that the staff didn't seem to concern themselves with the problem. Other than this the staff was excellent and helpful.
We would recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to ABQ.

Room Tip: Choose a room on the backside of the hotel to avoid the freeway noise and street noise. The backside...

Please know that in regards to the parking issue we deeply do care about our guests having a safe and comfortable place to park and we are so sorry if that was not conveyed to you. While we do offer a large parking area, the popularity of our location does often create quite a demand for parking. We will certainly take your issue into consideration and deeply appreciate you taking the time to let us know about it. Hope to see you again soon and all the best. Thank you again for letting us host you during your time here in Albuquerque. –Matthew Troche

We really enjoyed staying at this hotel! Arrived and was greeted by a very agreeable young lady. She made us feel welcome and explained the layout and the details. We had a fantastic evening on the roof top terrace bar. Nice menu, great service, and spectacular views of the city. Our room was very nicely appointed but a bit small. Could use more lighting. Beautiful furnishings and bathroom. The morning of check out is where things went flat. Woman at front desk unfriendly. Breakfast starts at 7:00. No coffee on our floor until 6:15. This hotel is not for the early riser! They just did not function at that hour. Would stay again but was left with a bad impression at the end of our stay.

Walking in the small front door leads you to believe that the hotel will be an old fashioned place, but it is not. The ambiance is very relaxing and the huge open rooftop is really a fun place. There is an indoor bar and lounge adjacent to the rooftop. The courtyard is relaxing with a fountain and the staff couldn't be more accommodating. The room was very small, but the bathroom was roomy. The place was spotless.

Room Tip: We had a king size bed. Maybe other rooms would be larger without that. I would check online for des...

The Parq Central already is a favorite on tripadvisor so it is probable not really necessary to talk it up any more. I have stayed several times and on every occasion all staff have been extremely friendly. You wonder how they put such a great team together. The rooms are tastefully decorated with subtle luxury. At my last stay, I had a room in the doctors' residence, which has even more charm. In the morning, there is a simple breakfast and you can also take on the terrace. The hotel is surrounded by a well trimmed garden with a hidden hot tub. The location of the hotel is not the best, but someone from the staff will take you where you need to be with the free hotel shuttle.
