First the good: Location is excellent, the building is beautiful (though lacking things like pool and having tiny rooms) it is steeped in history and is great starting point to explore Boston. Bed is small, but extremely comfortable. We had no noise issues, other that hearing a person talk in a hallway outside the door a couple times. On the... More

We stayed at the Omni Parker House over Valentines weekend. The hotel lobby was beautiful, check in was a breeze. The gold elevators are beautiful and you really feel like you are stepping back in time. Past that not so hot. The room that we had was soooo small. We had two double beds and they were so small we... More

Thank you for your comments regarding your recent stay with us. As you are aware, our hotel is over 150 years old, and as such, our rooms are small, particularly when compared to contemporary hotels. We are in the process "room care", in which each of our rooms are cleaned, necessary repairs made, etc. We will address items mentioned when... More

An old, formal hotel in appearance but with high standards and good quality service. Well positioned in the centre of the city and close to most of the historic sights. Good service but a little expensive for extras not pre booked, for example breakfast and meals.

Let me preface this review by saying my husband and I have stayed in numerous hotels in the Boston area and other areas of the country so I have a lot to compare this hotel to. I booked the Omni through Priceline. We use Priceline a lot and have never had a problem or been disappointed with our hotel room... More

We appreciated receiving the comments about your stay at our hotel this past weekend because it pointed out our need to retrain some members of our front desk staff on accommodating guests with Priceline reservations. The information you received from us was incorrect and there was no “bait and switch” involved whatsoever. The reservation confirmation you received from Priceline states:... More

Took my bride to the Omni for a Valentine's weekend. Used Priceline to get an atrractive $121 rate (including all taxes/fees.. etc). Front lobby is spacious and charming. We were unable to get a king/queen room as promised by Priceline (either the Omni or Priceline is at fault here.). Desk falsely indicated that the beds were larger than normal full-size..... More

Wonderfully positioned on the Freedom Trail in the heart of downtown Boston, this hotel oozes charm and sophistication. As other reviewers have noted, you wouldn't describe the rooms as spacious but they do the job. Very friendly and helpful staff. Sign up to the loyalty programme beforehand for free wi-fi and other goodies.

Great room with all amenities including plush bed, sep. mini fridge for your own use, internet, flat screen TV, free beverages and paper left at your door in the morning, free clothes pressing & extremely attentive staff. -- Hotel Lobby is early 20th century glamor in mint condition - Hotel room sizes were on the "cozy" side, but who cares...

I have been to Boston before but never stayed at a hotel in the city because our daughter lives outside of Boston and we have stayed there. I travel a... More

We'd stayed for four nights and we couldn't of picked a better located hotel. Literally no more than 5 minute walk from the Blue line stop direct from airport (Government Centre). Here's a tip... when you get to hotel and you're lugging cases - use the side door where there's no steps to manage - not the main entrance where... More
