The lobby is beautiful, and it was great to be in such an historic hotel. It apparently is the oldest continuously run hotel in America. For $317/night (excluding tax), we got a Classic Deluxe Room with the Park 'N Stay package, which included breakfast and both valet parking (which otherwise is $36 per day) and continued parking after 1:00 p.m. after check out (which normally is an extra $12). The hotel is on the Freedom Trail, and is in a terrific location to see the historic sites of Boston. The concierge was very helpful, giving us information on the city and available tours and selling us tickets for a bus tour. The room was very disappointing, however. It was small, dark and dreary. The TV is off in the corner. The bed and pillows were comfortable, however. The bathroom is very small. There is a pedestal sink with no counter. Our package also included breakfast buffet for two in the Parker House dining room. The buffet was excellent, and included french toast, scrambled eggs, potatoes, bagels and lox, toast, etc. We had room service for dinner, which was fast and good, but very expensive. The clam chowder ($9) was great. The NY Sirloin dinner ($36) with Bernaise sauce was delicious. The chili ($16) was okay. The restaurant is famous for inventing the Boston Cream Pie ($9), which we had to try, but we weren't fans. The key lime pie ($8) was disappointing. There is also an automatic $5 delivery charge and 16% gratuity. It takes 30 minutes to get your car, but the valet and bell staff are friendly. As a Select Guest member, we had complimentary wi/fi and milk and cookies, which were appreciated.
