The Omni Parker House, constructed in 1927, is one of the Historic Hotels of America. The original Parker House Hotel was established in 1855, and the modern venue maintains the Parker House commitment to luxury. At Parker's Restaurant, sample Baked Boston Schrod (cracker crumbs, jasmine rice, white wine and lemon beurre blanc), Boston Cream Pie, or the Parker House Roll for an authentic taste of the very city where these dishes were concocted. Guests seeking a nightcap should try one of The Last Hurrah's golden Bostonian whiskeys for a warming end to a day of exploration; look closely at the walls, and the faces of politicians, senators and congressmen will beam down at you as you sip. Accommodations range from the Economy Petite Single to the family Freedom Trail Suite, where cozy bean bags, activity tables, and children's costumes make for an entertaining stay.

Within walking distance of Boston Common, Quincy Market, the historic Opera House, the New England Aquarium and the waterfront, culture is right at your doorstep, and several nearby restaurants promise both regional and international fare.

nice but noisy

I visited my daughter for a weekend. The hotel is just beautiful and the staff very courteous and helpful. The location is superb and the views of historic Boston buildings first-rate. The grand dining room features the original panelling and ornate woodwork; and the food was not too bad, considering that the restaurant is a tourist attraction, but the Muzak was more than annoying. It's tolerable at breakfast but not at dinner. The hotel was renovated in 2008 but not well enough to keep guests from hearing every conversation in the adjoining rooms. The walls are thin! I had to change my first room because the people next door were so loud. The second room was no better. On Saturday night the revelers from some party were loud in the hallways at about 3 a.m. Again, the walls were so thin in my room that I could hear the goings-on in the next room and then in the morning every door that opened and shut as people made their way to breakfast. If you stay at the hotel, ask for a room "in the back" with no view - you're more likely to have peace and quiet. The rooms are tastefully done and the beds really comfortable.

Kennedy's is a very very short walk from the hotel, a tad bit pricey but worth the money. Kennedy's also holds the record for the smallest bathroom in Mass.

Best place I've stayed!

Omni was the best experience I have had at a hotel. It was right on Freedom Trail, a block from the subway, and really just the perfect location out there. The service was amazing, staff was beyond helpful- I really can't say enough about it. I will be going back out to Boston in a couple weeks, and I plan to stay there again.

Classy

Nice clean rooms, good minibar selection, robes a plus! Hotel decor was very nice and the age of the hotel was not a negative aspect and actually gave a cozy and elegant feel to the lobby and rooms.

Great first time if Boston

The hotel was beautiful, centrally located and had tons of character/history that we were looking for. The room and view were all we could ask for. The hotel was a close walk to the historic freedom trail, restaurants and bars. The only potential problem that we were able to avoid was the high parking price. Documentation we read before leaving stated that valet parking at the hotel would be $42 a night. We found a safe lot just down (near the opera house) the street for $25 a night.

Great Place- Close to the Best of Boston

We went to Boston to see the musical Jersey Boys at the Colonial Threatre which is in walking distance from the Parker House. The service at the Hotel was top notch- the room was not huge but very good- no view but we did not pay alot for the room and we were not in it very much and who needs a great view while you are sleeping. Will definitely return to the Parker House one of Boston's best.
