Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 18 June 2014

My wife and I recently stayed for two nights at the Parq Central. We chose this hotel, based on the excellent reviews on TripAdvisor. We were not disappointed.

Although the hotel was first constructed in 1926 (as a hospital), it has been completely updated. Our bedroom and bathroom were both large and modern. The king bed was very comfortable and linens and toiletries were high end. The front desk staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room was at the end of top floor, closest to the freeway. We did hear some vehicle noise at times, but generally the room was very quiet.

The hotel's location was good for us. Old Town is right at the end of Central Ave. and the two restaurants we wanted to go to for dinner were also on Central. Being close to the freeway made it convenient for us to get across town to do our sightseeing.

The only disappointing thing about our stay was the two breakfasts. On both days, they offered quiche that looked good, but was dry and rather tasteless. The same could be said for some of the pastries. Other than that, we thought this was an excellent hotel choice for Albuquerque. We would stay here again and we would recommend it to others.

We enjoyed our stay at the Parq Central. The place has a fresh new feel. We forgot our toothbrushes and the front desk gave us 2 complimentary toothbrushes of the same color (I wish they had different colors). Our room was quite small. I've seen bigger rooms in NYC. Breakfast was good for continental as they had 2 types of quiches, breads for toast, fruit and pastries, juice selection, coffee and teas. Parking seemed tight one evening due to many visiting the roof bar I think. We had a 6th floor room and heard noise from the roof bar on the busiest evening. I wish the hot tub was covered, we could not use it was rainy and cold the night we wanted to use it. Many restaurants are close by in either direction.

Room Tip: Avoid 6th floor due to roof bar noise.

Enjoyed everything about this hotel experience. Every employee greets you with a friendly smile and goes out of their way to assist you. Every area of the hotel is immaculate, both inside and out. The fresh citrus and herb infused ice water in the lobby is very much appreciated. The rooms are spacious, updated and clean. Beds are very comfortable. Bathrooms are spacious with frameless glass showers, hair dryer, magnified make-up mirror, nice soaps and shampoos, thick generously-sized towels and comfortable terry robes. Appreciate the cubby-like shelves for storage of toiletries and there is a subtley hidden night light underneath the sink counter. Thermostat is accurate and silent. Mini frig works great and safe is available for locking up valuables. Windows open to fresh air if you like and room-darkening shades and drapes keep the hot sun out if desired. Fresh coffee and tea available on each floor in the center area each morning. Wish tea was available at night. Complementary breakfast is excellent with several fresh juices, quiche, amazing pastries, freshly cut up melons and fruit, cereals, oatmeal, coffee, tea. We enjoyed eating outside on the beautiful patio where they have tables w umbrellas for shade, a lovely stone fountain and wooden rocking chairs. The hotel is pet friendly which initially concerned me because I have allergies but Molly, the hotel dog is a delight and well-behaved and I hardly noticed any other pets. There are specific rooms designated for pets and all the rest are pet-free. There is a nice little outdoor hot tub, no pool. The exercise room is about the only thing I would suggest needs a little help. It's small and in a basement-like room with a dank odor. However the equipment is there for those who want it. This is the only hotel I will stay in when l come to albuquerque. We slept great and were completely comfortable and relaxed.

Room Tip: Prefer side that is not overlooking highway but not a big deal either way. Was not bothered by any n...

I used to live in Albuquerque and would admire the architecture of the old railroad hospital on my commute everyday. So I was dying to see what the hotel did with the building. Location is not the best as transients range up and down Central from the University to Downtown. However, the hotel is lovely inside and there was no concern about crime. The bar on the roof is incredible, as is the view.
The room we stayed in was a bit small (think hospital rooms), but what it lacked in size was made up for by the decor, cleanliness, and the comfort of the bed. It was incredibly quiet considering the proximity to the Interstate.
The courtyard in the back was beautiful and much like an oasis. We had our breakfast out there. There is a large selection of pastries and the coffee is very good. I was not impressed with the quiche and would have hoped for some other egg options that reflect New Mexico .

Dear Renee B,
Thank you tremendously for being our guest here at Hotel Parq Central. It is always nice when a visitor remembers the edifice prior to its renovation into our beloved hotel. Keep in mind our breakfast menu is consistently transforming in an effort to meet our guest’s ever changing needs and tastes. But we agree; no one does eggs like they do here in New Mexico! Our hope is that you visit our hotel again as soon as possible as it is always a pleasure to host guests as nice as you. All the best and hope to see you again. –Matthew Troche

Exceptionally clean, beautiful and hip hotel. Glad we stayed there but won't be back again when visiting ABQ. We had 3 rooms for two nights and upon arrival we were informed that we had been upgraded (their idea of an upgrade) to a king & sofa bed room when we specifically reserved and were promised two dbl beds. So imagine paying 194++ each night for this upgraded room and having full-sized adults having to flip a coin to see who loses and gets to sleep on the very uncomfortable sofa bed. It was miserably uncomfortable. We could get no assistance or solution at the front desk though we tried twice. They were polite but with robot like listening skills.
The other two rooms were king beds so no issues there except I would be vigilent with young children on the scissor-like glass shower doors.

I highly recommend this beautiful hotel. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful, and it has been beautifully renovated- it's simply gorgeous. Fabulous spacious bathroom. The hotel has an interesting past- as a hospital for various medical issues. You will be fascinated. There are several excellent restaurants within a few blocks walking distance. And do not forget to have a drink on the roof top lounge at sunset. it's a great deal- and comes with breakfast. Wish I could have stayed longer.

This is a beautiful, recently renovated hotel (which used to be a hospital). Our room was spacious with a comfortable bed and a great bathroom. There's a 24 hour fitness center and fresh coffee on the floor in the morning. Very reasonably priced for a great hotel. Highly recommended
