“Hosted my Wedding and went far far above and beyond”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2014

My husband and I got married here in January 2014, in what happened to be a GIGANTIC snowstorm that shut down Boston for 2 days and resulted in 5 days of flight cancellations and delays. Through all this, the Omni was unbelievable. Me and my husband as well as a good number of our guests were all staying at the Omni and while some of the rooms were quite small, they were very generous with the upgrades which we all really appreciated! All the rooms were super clean which was really really wonderful.

Besides that, we had to switch our Rehearsal Dinner to the Omni 3 hours before it happened and they put together a wonderful Rehearsal Dinner for us at the very last minute which was wonderful. They had their staff sleep at the hotel so that they would be there in the morning for our wedding (since there were significant questions as to whether people would be able to get into the city since the storm was so bad.)

Jennifer and her team were absolutely amazing and everything was perfect, even with all the awful weather outside!

Wonderful hotel, wonderful staff, wonderful location. I just can't say enough good things!

Yes, we remember your wedding and the snowstorm quite well and are very pleased to hear from you that you were pleased with events, in spite of the weather. Thanks so much and we'll be sure that Jennifer sees your comments. Congratulations and all the best!

Boston is one of my favourite cities and I like to travel there off peak (usually in January) for a long weekend. The Omni Parker House is by far up there with the top hotels I have ever stayed in. It is old school, with with preserved luxury that you just can't beat. The staff are great, food is fab and the rooms (although small) are comfortable and offer a slice of history that you just don't get from regular hotel chains. If you are a shopper and like bargains (like me), it is right around the corner from some of the best shops in town - Macy's, DSW Shoes, Marshalls etc. It is also a short distance from the fun area of Faneuil Hall or the peaceful Boston Common. The pre-theatre menu in the hotel's main restaurant is definitely great value and it is nice to get the full service experience there. If you want a slice of top class luxury in a central hotel - go stay here. We've been 5 times already and cannot wait for our next visit!

After checking a few locations in Boston and comparing group prices, we chose the Omni Parker House. It is a beautiful, old hotel in downtown Boston--close to subways and within walking distance of many attractions.

We received good service and were well pleased with everything. We are glad we chose the Omni Parker House.

A charming hotel in a good location. Room was very clean and a good size. Tub could have been refinished. Only one night stand so night reading is challenging. Pack a book light if you like to read. Would stay there again.

Stayed July 2014, travelled as a couple

I met my friend from 4th grade (we're old now) and had a spectacular time. Central location, we wanted to see everything and the concierge helped immensely. Everyone was great to work with and went out of their way for us. Love the history of the city and loved staying in a historical hotel.

Exceptional Guest Service was not the norm at the Omni Parker hotel in Boston. The only exception was with Helder Fanfa, Purchasing Manager. Helder went above and beyond and truly was the only person showing any kind of guest service that one would expect at this establishment.

Seamus Murphy gave us a tour of this fabulous hotel where John F. Kennedy allegedly proposed to Jackie Kennedy. I sat at the actual table ;-) Also the history of this hotel is filled with politicians, chefs, celebrities and authors. It is a grand and luxurious place to visit and stay. It is in the heart of downtown Boston and has lots of attractions around it within walking distance.
