I was only a guest for one evening, but enjoyed my stay. The room/bathroom was smaller than I had anticipated, but overall, we enjoyed our stay and the space worked out fine. The location was the main reason for booking this hotel. We enjoyed the hotel bar as well.

Very nice hotel. Has big city " fancy" feel. Visited with kids and they got welcome packages which was really special. Rooms are a bit tight but not too bad for the great location in the middle of the city.

Stayed July 2013, travelled with family

We got an offer from Groupon for this hotel and we booked for three nights. The hotel is very grand and ornate, with a beautiful, elegant lobby. We joined their "Select Guest" program for free and received free wi-fi in our room and Starbucks coffee and a newspaper delivered to our room every morning. The "Select Guest" program allows you to pick preferences, such as preferring a high or low floor, closer or further away from the elevator, and other preferences. We chose a high floor and our room was on the top floor, the 14th, with beautiful views of the City of Boston. While the room was not large, it was lovely, with the most comfortable bed and high-end linens. The bathroom, while small, was perfectly remodeled and just right for our needs, with a very nice shower.

To the reviewer who complained they could hear their neighbors, there is a "white noise" feature on the TV and, if you join the "Select Guest" program, they can bring you a "white noise" machine.

We stayed with our dog - they charged a one-time $50 fee. They brought us an "Omni" dog mat and two dog bowls.

The hotel is located directly on the "Freedom Trail", which is a wonderful way to walk the city. The location is very safe. There is a "Ruth's Chris" Steakhouse across the street.

The service and the concierge were just perfect, professional and courteous. We had a wonderul time; we wished we had stayed longer. We would recommend highly and we will certainly be back!

I am a huge fan of Omni as they manage two of my favorite places to stay; the Mt. Washington Hotel in NH, and the Parker House in Boston. I've stayed at each more than 20 times and they never disappoint. The staff is very helpful and professional, and if you are a loyalty member (which I can't recommend highly enough) they go out of their way to make sure you have the best stay possible. I've stayed on my anniversary and birthday, and they have important dates noted in their system and will always leave something special without you even asking. Most recently I stayed for my birthday and they left a bottle of complimentary champagne and two boston cream pies (which was invented at the parker house) in our room with a very nice hand written note! If you are a loyalty member they also give you a door hanger at check in to leave on your door indicating what free drinks you would like in the morning and when you would like them delivered. You also get a free night after every 10 nights you stay, good at any Omni property.
They are in a perfect location one minute from the State Street T stop with a Starbucks right across from the main entrance. The rooms and bathrooms are rather small but it is expected with an older hotel like this. The bed is one of the most comfortable I've ever found in a hotel. Highly recommend the Omni Parker House which is very reasonable (and you can also get lucky and land a room here on Priceline's name your own price for an extremely reasonable rate by the way.)

Parker house has loads of character. First class friendly staff that make you feel very much at home. It has so much character and history to it. JFK proposed to Jackie in Parkers Restaurant/ Ideally located for freedom trail, and all attractions in Boston. Food is very good and excellent value for a city hotel. Highly recommended. You will not be disappointed

The hotel is in a great location - very central and close to the main attractions in Boston. But the decor is dated, the rooms and bathrooms are dated, the walls are so thin that every noise from next door can unfortunately be heard. The food was very poor. However, the staff are very pleasant and do try hard to be helpful. It feels like the hotel is trading on its past history, but it could really benefit from an overhaul to bring it up to date.
