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.

History is not enough...

The 2 double beds room was ridiculously small. Haven't been in such a small room before!! The bathroom was tiny also to serve a family with 2 teenage kids. I couldn't get my money back and walk away from the hotel because the room price was nonrefundable and I was exhausted. I couldn't use my tax exemption privilege, as a diplomat. So I was overcharged $85.68 for no reason. You see I reserved the room through a travel website, and in this case hotels don't want to deal with the terms of the booking. When I contacted with the hotel 2 days prior to my arrival (with Ali through texting) and asked not to be charged any taxes, they said that I had to ask it from the travel website and I got the same answer by the travel website. So diplomats, be careful!!! Apart from that, the Omni Parker House services were in a very high level. The good think about the hotel is it's location in the center of the city.

Very Expensive [...]

The room was a cubby hole, they said they would charge me $ 10 for internet unless I signed to their loyalty program - which reluctantly I did. I double checked that they had no similar conditions to use electricity or water !!For a price conscious customers looking for best prices through [...], I don't think it is a right hotel [...], I had to pay US $ 9 which probably is the most expensive bottle of water I am ever going to drink. The hotel is good, but gives an impression of arrogance, hubris.

Dissapointing

I requested a king bed, but instead got 2 twin beds. Not queen, twin. Also, the room was so small that we could barely move around in it. It looked like a normal size room that had been sub-divided. Bathroom felt like a locker. Good location and beautiful lobby, but totally not worth the price. Definitely will not go back.

Omni Experience

For the cost, the room (deluxe queen) was too small to even turn around in. We had little space to place our luggage out of the way, so we were always tripping on it. The door into the bathroom would not open all the way because it was hitting the toilet when it was half-open. The wireless internet was not a very user friendly as one had to give lots of personal information before getting online. Even Motel 6 has a user friendly internet. Guess it is a way to pass our information on to others who may be subsidizing their service.We had the pleasure of hearing trash trucks dumping large containers all night!

Great Location

Coming from the midwest, I know we expect bigger rooms, but one chair in a 2 bed room was not enough. Bathroom was cramped. Loved the staff in the Last Hurrah! Location of hotel is great for walking to various spots.

Surprised that is was not nicer

I had read the reviews that said the hotel was very nice, clean and in a good location. The location was OK for business (which is why I was there)-- in Boston's financial district. But in my humble opinion, the hotel itself is in desperate need of renovation. They first put me in a small king-sized bed room that was likie a closet. The bathroom door even had a a circular piece taken out so it could open and close without hitting the toilet. The staff were OK but I would stay someplace else in the future.

stay away from parker

The waiters were horrible. One waiter had his thumb in my soup! There are two bars in the hotel, they were hardly ever open. The chef in the dining room complained to me @ the management and how horrible his working conditions were. All this during a holiday weekend.

Great location, beautiful room

The Omni Parker house is beautiful in a great location. The problem we had is that at 3 in the morning, we turned on the air conditioner and it sounded like a helicopter was going to land in the room. From 3 on we didn't sleep as it would cycle on and off. The next morning when we checked out we told the girl and she just said ok, I will let maintenance know. She told us that they were in the process of servicing the AC and that might of been a room that they hadn't gotten to.
