The Omni Parker has become our favorite place to stay in the Boston area. We have tried several other hotels that are good choices but the Omni feels like family to us. When we arrive the staff is friendly and welcoming and provides immediate assistance. A few of the most appealing features of this hotel include the commitment to maintaining its historical architecture, its location to the variety of activities, restaurants, and historical sites, and friendliness of staff. If you are here to explore the city then this is definitely the perfect place to stay! One caveat...this is not a rambling hotel with expansive rooms. It is a true icon from the past which means the rooms are not as large as present day hotels but you will be impressed with the comfort of the beds, the cleanliness of the rooms, and the attention to detail that embraces its era. There is a breakfast buffet that may be small on selection but always seems to target the perfect variety and is impeccably serviced. We love coming back and getting the personal attention each time we visit. You will also be well taken care of by the concierge! They are well-informed, have wonderful relationships with restaurants in town, and always seem to find those reservations we need ;) Enjoy the beauty this icon from the past offers and be sure to ask about JFK’s stay here, too.

Very Average for an Upscale Hotel

We booked the Omni Parker House for a quick weekend get away to Boston. The primary reasons we booked was the location and history of the hotel. Also, we have stayed at other Omni resorts and hotels that did not disappoint. While the location did not disappoint, the accommodations (for the price and expected quality) certainly did. The room was very small (and that is being generous - it was tiny) even for two people. We barely had room to move around the bed without bumping into each other. The bathroom was so small that you had to close the door to do business. The bed was not anchored so the slightest movement caused you to feel that your date with the floor was imminent. The room and bathroom had very musty smells to them - the carpet in the room was definitely not clean - the tub in the bathroom had a lot of wear as did the tile. The housekeeping staff made no bones about waking you up with the noises of their cart and slamming of room doors as they cleaned (which seemed like it was non stop from the time we checked in at 12 until we checked out the next morning at 11. We did enjoy the Parker House bar - the food and ambiance were great as was the bar staff. The Boston Cream pie that we were very much looking forward to was obviously not fresh - it was very stale as if it had been baked days before and packaged. Honestly, we've had better cakes from our local grocery store's bakery. Overall, the hotel is very run down and has seen better days - it is definitely in need of a face lift and not worth the price.

History Class and Boston Creme pie !

This hotel housed John Wilkes Booth and set up target practice for him just before the assassination. They invented the Boston cream pie and it is still great as are there diner rolls that the created. Clam chowder not as good as Legal sea food’s but then no one’s is that good.
Beautiful hotel but get a back lot or inside room if you want to get away from noise.
Some parts of the hotel ( restroom doors for instance ) looks worn and almost shabby( not quite but close)
Great location on freedom trail - a must do.

Nice hotel, impossible to sleep
Reviewed 2 days ago

The hotel is in an awesome part of Boston. Staff is very nice. Rooms are small especially for how much it costs to stay. The bathrooms are very tight. The worse part was trying to sleep. There was loudnoice all night. Not just cars going by but banging, glass breaking and trucks backing up. I barely slept both nights I was there.

Surprisingly bad!

Hotel is very run down. Lobby is the nicest part and even that carpet has seen better days. Suite was small and VERY shabbily furnished. Reminded me of a first apartment. Smell was obvious of "fabreeze" masking who knows what? Bath tiles and grout were mildewed and spotty. Not a good experience.
