New Albuquerque Luxury Hotel: Parq Central Historic Hotel Opens
The carefully restored doors at Hotel Parq Central just opened this past September, having welcomed guests to a new standard of hospitality. The boutique hotel is built on the renovated site of the original Santa Fe Hospital, which first opened in 1926.
The hospital was built by the Atchison Topeka & Santa Fe Railroad to serve their employees and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Hotel Parq Central was designed by local Studio Southwest Architects Inc., Klinger Constructors, and HVL Interiors with a nod to the past while keeping in mind the needs of today’s discerning guests. Original clay tiles, 1926-era windows, and a Grand Staircase provide the backdrop for modern touches, including free wireless internet, iPod data connectors, and LCD flat-panel TVs.

Luxurious guestrooms and welcoming public spaces are located in four separate buildings, connected by landscaped gardens and pathways. Faith Okuma, of Surroundings Studio, has designed a colorful, shady and water-wise landscape, with delightful interior gardens hidden behind native xeric streetscapes. Guests can enjoy Albuquerque‘s 310 days of annual sun while strolling among Catmint, Irises, Mexican Evening Primrose, and Indian Hawthorn, to name a few.
Local residents and guests alike anticipate sipping 1920s themed cocktails at the new rooftop “Apothecary Lounge” while admiring skyline and mountain views. In paying homage to the past, the lounge features a wall decoupaged with vintage-era medicinal labels, an original operating room lamp and a table formed from a 1940′s coffin carrier.
Located along the famous Route 66 in Albuquerque’s trendy EDo, Hotel Parq Central promises to be a traveler’s favorite stop.
Starting rates begin at $139/night and include amenities such as free parking, gourmet continental breakfast, free wireless Internet in public areas and guestrooms, and complimentary coffee/tea service on each floor.
