Fodor's Expert Review Hotel Parq Central

806 Central Ave. SE, Albuquerque, New Mexico, 87102, USA Fodor's Choice

A decidedly imaginative adaptation of a disused building, the landmark Parq Central occupies a striking tile-trimmed three-story former AT& SF Railroad employees' hospital that dates to 1926. In the perky EDo neighborhood, near its notable restaurant row, the hotel is minutes from Downtown, UNM/Nob Hill, and the airport. The soothing, sound-blocked rooms have high-quality linens and fluffy terry robes. The hotel lobby, as well as its Apothecary Lounge rooftop bar (in which vintage 1920s cocktails are served), pick up the particular and appealing pallette of the building's vintage Moravian tile details. A Continental-style breakfast is included; enjoy it in the window-lined Parlor Room, or in the lovely back patio gardens. A small on-site fitness center is well outfitted; in-room massage services can be arranged by the solicitous staff.

PROS

  • wonderfully landscaped, historic building
  • smartly designed rooms with sound-blocking windows
  • free shuttle to airport and within 3 miles of hotel
  • walk to fine EDo restaurants

CONS

  • desks in rooms are quite small (though hotel will provide a larger one on request)
  • parking (free) can be sparse when Apothecary Lounge is hopping
  • noise might travel to rooms nearest the Lounge
