“Amazing Luxury in the heart of Albuquerque”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

Hotel Parq Central is subdued luxury at it's finest! The rooms are comfortable, and the bathrooms large. Great front desk staff. The breakfast is wonderful with everything from fresh warm quiche to fruit pies, bagels, cereal, and yogurt...great coffee, too. The Apothecary Lounge on the roof of the hotel has gorgeous views, but skip ordering any food...grab a drink at the bar and a seat overlooking the city. The outside patio at the back of the hotel is perfect on beautiful Albuquerque summer nights. Enjoy!

Dear lwestrmt,

Thank you so much for your feedback! We’re glad to hear that you enjoyed our gourmet continental breakfast; our parlor staff works tirelessly to make sure that the breakfast is fresh and varied each morning. We’re also glad that you enjoyed the view from the rooftop’s Apothecary Lounge. I like to brag that we have one of the best views of the sunset in the city—unless, of course, you’re on top of the Sandia Crest!

Thanks again for your review,

Stayed here one night while we were passing through Albuquerque on a road trip. Interesting historic building with a modern, trendy vibe. The bed was very comfortable--spacious shower--beautiful landscaping--nice breakfast--convenient shuttle service to town--but best of all was the awesome staff! Everyone went out of their way to be friendly and helpful -- special kudos to Jeremiah, Grey and Noel. Have stayed quite a few places and experienced nice staff before but this group was stellar!

This hotel caught my eye from the highway as it is historic and very charming. My room was not in the main building but in another older historic part if the property. I loved it! My room was very quiet and peaceful and very spacious. The bathrooms ear modern and the decor is very fresh and crisp with a muted modern vibe. Free internet, fridge in room.

Room Tip: Ask for an upgrade for the historic rooms located across the courtyard.

Dear VinoVixen1111,

I am glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay in the Doctor’s Residence! I personally greatly enjoy that area as well, especially because of its rich, historic personality and its calm seclusion. We are all happy to hear that you enjoyed the décor, the free internet, and the fridge as well.

Thank you for your feedback, and keep us in mind the next time you are passing through Albuquerque.

Best wishes,

It is hard to believe that this hotel was once a hospital! The decorations are beautiful, especially the Syzygy tile in the lobby. The beds are super comfortable. You can even open the windows! I love fresh air. I certainly plan on going back!
The lobby is beautiful. It is decorated with Syzygy tile, a must see!

Dear Travellingnut2014,

Thank you for your review, we’re glad you enjoyed your stay! You might be interested to learn that the Syzygy tile on our lobby columns was designed as a sort of visual reference to the original tile pattern on the exterior of the building; one of many references to the building’s legacy. We’re glad to hear that you plan on coming back, we can’t wait to host you again!

We stayed here because our company was throwing a Christmas party at the Apothecary Lounge upstairs.

The room was nice. Great view out to Central. The neighborhood is improving, and the location is very convenient. There are food options nearby, and the Interstate is right there.

The place has a lot of character. They do a good job of highlighting the history, from the railroad days on the present. I'm glad to see a grand old structure like this repurposed into a very tasteful establishment.

I have stayed in many hotels over the years and the Hotel Parq Central is by far the best. The attention to detail here is amazing. I also enjoyed the tribute that the Hotel pays to its former use as a hospital through decorations such as enlarged vintage postcards. The room we had was a large corner room with a king size bed and siting area. Bathroom had a hugh shower with a seat and a large vanity. Staff here is professional, super helpful and friendly, and I mean everyone. Roof-top lounge during sunset and into the evening is a must. We had an early flight out of ABQ and the easy 10 minute drive from the Hotel parking lot to the rental car lot is a major plus. Breakfast goes from 7 A.M. to Noon and they will prepare you a breakfast-to-go should you need to get out prior to 7 A.M., which they did for us. Fantastic! Don't miss out on this jewel of a hotel.

Room Tip: Loved Room 313. Nice large corner room with large bathroom containg a hugh shower with seat.

Dear Megan D,

We greatly appreciated your review of our hotel. We are excited to hear that your experience at the Parq Central was exceptional, and we are always glad to know when the service and amenities meet our standards of quality.

Thank you especially for mentioning the décor paying homage to the building’s legacy. That is an element of the interior design which I personally find incredibly interesting—I’m still discovering things I’ve never noticed before!

Thank you again, and I hope that you get another chance to enjoy our hospitality!

All the best,

Before I say anything else I would say that I will be very happy to come back to the Parq Central, and wouldn't want to stay anywhere else in Albuquerque. It is a lovely boutique hotel with some of the friendliest staff I've come across anywhere, light and airy rooms, fabulously comfortable beds and extremely good air conditioning.

The one thing that I didn't love was the restaurant/bar on the top floor. It was far too hot to sit outside, and inside there's not enough room to relax, with a menu based on light bites. A few more salads to choose from rather than tapas would have been better for me at least. And more protein on the breakfast menu (although it is free) would have suited me better as I don't eat quiche, croissants, rolls bagels, muffins etc which I know most do.

Other than that it's a beautifully designed hotel with every detail thought of. I hope to go back.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back away from the main road.

Dear phd2,

Thank you very much for your comments and compliments! We are so glad that you were satisfied with our service and with your stay. That being said, we are sad to hear that the selections at the Apothecary and at breakfast weren’t 100% satisfactory. We try to make sure we have something for everybody, but sometimes we are unable to meet everyone’s needs. Bear in mind that both of those menus are always evolving, so perhaps the next time you stay with us we’ll have a selection you’re more interested in.

Thank you once more for your feedback, we hope that you’re able to stay with us again soon!

With regards,
