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.

Since other buildings surround the Omni Parker House, rooms on higher floors tend to provide a better view over School Street or Tremont Street.

A Piece of Bostonian History

Walking through the historic doors of the Omni Parker House Hotel left us feeling every bit as impressed as we had expected. The antiquiety that makes up the grand entrance and many of the ballrooms is an experience in itself. When you are ready to leave the Omni Parker to site see, the hotel is near many local/historical landmarks and is in between several public transit stops. Our room was clean and comfortable. We believe that internet should be made available to guests without an extra charge, so our value rating reflects this. Our personal favorite touch of the hotel is the beautiful floral smell that accompanies the main lobby as you enter after a long day of site seeing.

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!!!

Would stay here again

When the front desk noticed we had 4 adults in our party, they kindly upgraded us to a bigger room! Everyone was friendly and helpful. The room was clean and comfortable. I liked the historic charm of the decor. And the location was primo!! Everything was close by and walkable and super easy to get to using the train from the airport.

Great location, shows her age

The hotel is a great landmark. Its location in Boston can't be beat. The food is good and the staff are great. The building, décor, and furnishings are a bit tired and showing their age. Not a high-end getaway, more of an aging pub feel but also lacks the pretense of a Fairmont.

Awesome location downtown

Comfy bed, average bath. The shower was tight and had a drain that did not drain properly, leaving you standing in 4 inches of water by the end of your shower. No coffee in the lobby in the morning, but Starbucks is nearby check in was fast and friendly.

Great get away in historic hotel

Staff were all very helpful, managers came to help when lines were long. Concierge staff very helpful with inquiries. We walked a lot as we had visited before and done the trolley tour then. Salem was disappointing, a series of museums to pay to see, but visually good.

One night stay during extended flight lay-over

Everything was wonderful during our stay. The staff made everything so easy for us, we barely had to ask for anything as they seemed to know the answer already. Robes in the deluxe room were a nice bonus and really comfy. Restaurant was amazing, although a little pricey. But well worth it to see where so many historical figures and famous chefs have eaten, etc. The only down side would be the price. just a little too expensive for any extended stay. Again, all staff were so wonderful, and this made the price less of an issue.
