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.

Perfect Location!

You can walk to the Boston Commons, Fanueil Hall, Union Oyster House, the Duck Pond, Beacon Hill. It is the best location. Staff was great, very helpful and polite. You really get a feel for what Boston is all about. The walls to our room were a little thin as we could hear baby crying, but that's probably everywhere. The beds were super comfortable. The room itself is small but if you travel to big cities or overseas, then you know the older hotels are like that. I would definitely stay here again!!!

Style and Class

As long as I can remember, the Parker House has always been a Boston landmark, but I'd never had the opportunity to stay there before and what a treat it was. Recently renovated, the hotel was elegant and beautifully decorated for the holidays. The downtown Boston location is convenient to all the local sights. Although the rooms were small, they were well appointed, with fabulously comfortable beds and luxurious bedding. The staff was very accommodating, especially the front desk rep, who offered us a complimentary upgrade.

My review of Omni Parker House

Everything is within walking distance from this historic hotel. Setting was old-fashioned elegance; beds were great. Had a deluxe room with two beds and while not huge the room was more than adequate. Staff congenial & helpful.

Great location

the Parker House Omni is centrally located but what we loved the most was the staff. Everyone went out of his way to assure us that our stay was perfect. Our closet was gigantic-we could walk in, change, and even dance if we wanted to.

The North end was a brief walk from the hotel. We loved the dining options there and two great bakeries-Modern and Mike's. Bostonian's freely recommended their favorite spots so we never had a bad meal anywhere.

My review of Omni Parker House

The Omni Parker House was a very nice hotel located in a wonderful location. Historical landmarks and the T are just a short walk away. Faneuil Hall Market, with plenty of shopping, dinning and entertainment opportunities is a short walk from the hotel. The interior of the hotel is beautiful, the staff was very pleasant and helpful. The biggest disappointment was the size of the room (the smallest room available with a junior bed). The room was very cramped for 2 people. It was difficult to relax and stretch out after a long day of walking around the city. I would recommend couples upgrade to a room with a queen sized bed. I would definitely recommend this hotel for people traveling to Boston.

My review of Omni Parker House

The concierge staff was excellent. They provided us with restaurant suggestions off the beaten track and very good. The room was not very large but it was cozy and comfortable and just right for two persons. The location was great if you wanted to be near the wharf and near Quincy Market and the Public Gardens/Commons. I would stay at the hotel again.

Conveniently located

The hotel staff was friendly and helpful in guiding us to where we wanted to visit. The lobby was elegant, especially the elevator doors. We enjoyed the room except for the fact that there were no counters in the bathroom to place our amenities. Also, another chair would have been nice. The only thing that disappointed me was the soiled top sheet. I left a note for housekeeping and it was changed that day.
