Our waitress, Lillian #102 served us on Jan 23, 2016. She delivered our order without engagement whatsoever or ever having checked back to see if anything was needed. Her only wish it seemed, was to go home. We should not have left a tip but did so because the delivery was prompt and the food, awesome! I can say without... More

I've been coming to Parkers for 30 years now. I've always considered it one of my favorite restaurants, for both food, and decor. The decor is as grand as always, with the charming Last Hurrah upstairs, and the amazing mahogany walls, and carvings. The service has gone downhill. We were disappointed in our waiter, who was initially way to interested... More

Disappointed to discover the Last Hurrah is closed on Sundays, I ended up having a bite at Parker's and totally enjoyed! Sliders on Parker House rolls with onions followed by the original Boston cream pie made my last night in Boston very enjoyable. Bartender and wait staff were great as well. Walk up the stairway to the second floor to... More

As apart of our girl's weekend we researched for the best Boston cream pie and this was the place! Wanting to save room for dessert we just shared a cheese plate and a salad. Not bad pricing considering everything is expensive the area. Delicious! Good service and beautiful location

My wife & I ate here recently while staying at the hotel. Service was great, the meal was excellent. The brazed wild boar was delicious. I loved the famous "Parkerhouse rolls" and the also famous Boston cream pie. It was an overall very enjoyable dining experience.

We enjoyed two breakfast buffets at the Parker House restaurant - home of the Parker House roll. The buffet was included in our room cost, but the normal price is $25 per person. The buffet offered bacon and sausages, hash brown potatoes, scrambled eggs and a variety of pastries, breads, cereal and fruit. Coffee is excellent. Service was attentive, albeit... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where, during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting children and eager tourists through the pond. Have your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
