“Beautiful historic hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2014

The staff and the common areas of this beautiful hotel more than make up for the average size of the rooms. Would love to have had two queens instead of two double beds for the 3 adults, but not a deal breaker. The location is fabulous.

Museums are usually open days and a few evenings a week. Staying at the Omni Parker House was like staying in a museum. "Living History." The same with the Parker House restaurant -- the place where Parker House Rolls and Boston Cream Pie were created. It's where Jack proposed to Jackie. Where Ho Chi Minh worked. And where Charles Dickens stayed. And yet, all the conveniences and luxury of the 21st century abounded.

Historical building. Quite grand in foyer. Rooms very small, with noisy air conditioner units on wall that cut in and out all night. Service up to Omni standards but have to say I wouldn't revisit due to poor rooms.

The incentive when staying here is to do things outside the hotel. What mean is that there were no public places for guests to feel part of the greater hotel. You have your room and that is really it.

While we appreciate this guest's feedback, the comment about public space surprised us because our main lobby is quite spacious and a continually-popular gathering spot for guests and other visitors to the hotel. Check out our website for photos!

The Omni Parker Hotel is one of the oldest continually operated hotels in the USA. It is a magnificent hotel. The customer service is amazing. It is also a very quite hotel where guest are respectful of each others needs for a good night sleep. Some of the rooms are very small so be sure to clarify your needs when you book your room. There is no pool, hot tub or sauna facilities.

My wife and I were at the Omni Parker House for six nights and they gave us the smallest room on the floor as depicted in the fire escape map for the floor. I'm 6'8" and we had to sleep (or try to) in a full size bed because our former broom closet room was too small for a proper bed. Other rooms were probably much nicer but staff was unwilling to move us even though we asked repeatedly to be moved.

I stayed at the Omni Parker House for a conference recently. Though my room was quite small, it was clean and nicely decorated. What really wowed me was the service. As a breastfeeding and pumping mom, the hotel truly made my life easier. The staff readily and quickly provided a refrigerator upon arrival, and allowed a late checkout. The front desk staff and housekeeping were very friendly and helpful. And if you have time, the manager, Seamus, has some amazing stories about his time at the hotel. Though I did not get to explore the area as much as I would have liked to, the hotel has a great location - close to historical sites and amazing restaurants. I would highly recommend this hotel purely based on the service I received, though if you have little ones and want to have room for them to plan in your room, this is not the hotel for you.
