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.

Great location

The Omni Parker was in a very good location for getting around Boston. It is in walking distance to many sites and convenient to the subway if you need to use it. our room (2 double beds) was average size, very comfortable. The hotel staff was friendly and knowledgeable. We asked questions almost daily. It was nice to be so close to Quincy Market, to either grab something to eat or for some free entertainment by the street performers.

Very Friendly Staff

The Omni is currently under construction. Although the room was very samll, it was in a quiet section of the hotel. All staff members were extremely friendly and we were pleased with the communication and service we received. I would definitely recommend this hotel to my own family and friends.

Very location for seeing Boston

The room was somewhat small but very clean. Large screen TV. The staff was very friendly for the entire eight days. Location was great, near all the sites of Boston. When I rented a car, it was delivered to the hotel in the morning. I returned the car and got another car the next day rather than pay $38 for parking. My wife and I enjoyed it very much.

My 13 year old daughter and I stayed at the Parker Omni house and had a wonderful time. The location is in close proximity to everything we wanted to do in the city. Very close to the park.

Stepping back in time

The Omni Parker House Hotel is a classic comfortable place to stay. The room was somewhat smaller than a standard hotel room, but was much warmer and cozier. We loved the ambience - and the location was phenomenol! A short walk to the North End for great food - the Freedom Trail right outside the front door - what more could you ask for. The concierge service was the best I've ever had at any hotel I've stayed at - and I travel quite a bit.

Fabulous Hotel

Location is just incredible. Walking distance to more historical sights than anyone could see in several weeks, to great restaurants, to the waterfront and the Faneuil Market and Hall. Staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. Food in the hotel bar is reasonable and delicious......I love this hotel.

A great experience

We were impressed with the hotel staff. Even housekeeping went out of their way to accomodate our requests. Location on the freedom trail is really convenient. The hotel is a historic beauty---fun to be in. Boston is the most tourist and user "friendly" big city we have ever visited.

Vacation in Boston

The location is right in the heart of Boston and is walking distance to all sorts of great things. There is a crepe place across the street that is fantastic, and we were close to several T(subway) stops. You can take the Blue Line from the airport to Government Center Station and then walk to the hotel. The rooms were plush and nice. The foyer was beautiful and a great place to have a conversation. We ate at the restaurant for dinner and loved it. 2 people ordered the scrod and I got the swordfish; no one was disappointed. Wifi is $10 a day PER DEVICE, so be aware of that. I did it on my phone and then laptop thinking it was per room, not per device. They waived the fee because I signed up for some free membership. This is a great place to be if you need to get anywhere in Boston, and we truly enjoyed it.

Doré Creperie has excellent sweet and savory crepes, and it's across the street from the hotel at 1 Beacon St. The coffee was terrible, so skip that, but the crepes were outstanding.
