“Great location”
Reviewed 25 August 2014 via mobile

Stayed for 3 nights, mid August 2014.

Really pleased with this choice of hotel as the location is really central for exploring the city. 5 minutes to the T (subway), 5 minutes to the common, 10 minutes to Quincy Marketplace, a few minutes to closest hop on hop off bus stop. McDonalds, Starbucks and Walgreens round the corner for snacks.

Room was quite small, as was the bed but this was expected. It's a historic hotel and this is reflected in the decor, our room was well maintained and had been updated whilst retaining some of the older features (flat screen tv, mini-bar, big safe) Bathroom, whilst small, was functional with a good supply of toiletries.

The Omni Group are now only honouring their travel club extras if you have booked directly with the hotel rather than a booking agent. This includes free in room wifi, bottled water and a newspaper.

Perfect hotel for a trip to Boston. Great location that was convenient to everything we wanted to do. We walked most everywhere, did a trolley tour, and took subway to Sox game. For a first time visit to Boston could not have asked for a better place to stay. When we first checked in the concierge helped us with our plans and how to get around. He suggested a trolley tour which we purchased. The tour also included a harbor tour and tea party museum tour. For lack of time we didn't do the tea party museum. The trolley tour was good, but in retrospect we had planned on doing the duck tour and wish we had. That was not the fault of the concierge and they were willing to help us with the duck tour, but we did choose the trolley tour for hat it included. We ate at the Parker House restaurant for breakfast once and lunch once. Another great experience at this hotel. We reserved a room with a king-sized bed and for us this was perfect. We got lucky and were in a corner room on the 9th floor which we really enjoyed the view out both windows. Good size room, bathroom, and closet (largest closet we've seen at a hotel). To summarize great location, ambiance, staff, room, and restaurant. Overall a great experience!

The Parker House is a special place. An old school quality hotel with history and the perfect location. The staff does a nice job of ensuring your stay is enjoyable. It is an old hotel so you have to acknowledge and appreciate that aspect of the architecture, layout and amenities to fully enjoy it. Great whiskey list at The Last Hurrah!

Good value for the money if you are looking for a hotel in the heart of historic Boston. I could walk everywhere. However, it was very busy. Filled with lots of large tourist groups. My room was small, but clean. And the staff was wonderful.

Hotel was ok. The bathroom was EXTREMELY small, but the staff was very friendly and helpful. The location is excellent as you can walk to numerous venues. I defintely explored Boston by foot. I personally would not stay at this hotel again because the bathroom was way too small. My room view was an ugly, dirtly wall and HVAC sytems.

Needed a room at the last minute close to the airport. Beautiful hotel, close to subway and Boston historical sites. Room was tiny, but very nice. Every amenity. Front desk was very helpful. Will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Standard room is TINY. Just FYI.

I was a little concerned about staying here after reading some of the reviews. Our room was a pleasant surprise. Because we had three people, we had a room with 2 full sized beds, which allowed us to get a larger room. Some of the rooms with a single bed were quite small. We were greeted by Seamus upon our arrival. He told us to see him if we needed anything. Our view was pleasant, facing School street. Concierge seemed happy to help us with questions.
