"I stayed at Hotel Parq Central on a quick one-night business trip to Albuquerque. It was a lovely stay in a convenient location. I met up with a colleague and we walked downtown for dinner, which was an easy walk. The property itself is lovely and my room was comfortable. I enjoyed the variety of options on the free breakfast buffet including green chile and sausage quiche - yum! I’d definitely recommend this hotel, especially if traveling for business or as a couple." ~ Review of Hotel Parq Central, Albuquerque, NM - TripAdvisor

Built in the Italianate architecture style, our buildings were originally designated to treat employees of the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railway company. In the '40s the name was changed to the AT & SF Hospital and later, in the '80s, was purchased by a group of psychiatrists who named it Memorial Hospital. The exterior of the Hotel Parq Central remains true to its original Italianate architecture.

Travel Trending with Kathy Witt: Former ‘insane asylums’ repurposed as museums and hotels

"The locally-owned Hotel Parq Central in Albuquerque, NM, gives a nod to its past as a hospital and psychiatric facility with its Apothecary Lounge, a rooftop bar and patio serving Prohibition-era styled drinks and displaying a collection of vintage apothecary bottles." ~ Travel Trending with Kathy Witt How crazy is this? There are former “insane asylums” all over the U.S. that have been given new life as upscale hotels, art museums — even a medical history museum.

The Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Employee's Benefit Association, a pre-paid health plan formed in 1881 and founded the Santa Fe Hospital in about 1906. In railroading's heyday it was one of a number of association-owned hospitals along the route from Chicago to Los Angeles. Albuquerque's original Santa Fe Hospital was located on South Broadway. Purchased by the Catholic Church and converted to Saint Xavier's School for Boys, the Santa Fe Hospital was rebuilt right here at 806 Central Avenue in 1926.
