“Comfortable stay”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

Initially, I was a bit hesitant to stay at the Omni. A lot of the reviews mentioned old and small, and I'm claustrophobic. As it turned out, the room was a bit smaller than most hotel rooms I've stayed in, but it wasn't unbearably small. I also don't think the rooms are all uniform in size. We had adjoining rooms, and my kids' room was slightly bigger. The bathroom is small, but unless two people need to be in there at the same time, it's a non-issue. The beds are comfortable and we had free wi-fi, albeit spotty sometimes, and complimentary beverages by becoming select guest members before arriving (it's free to join). It's also ideally located. We never took the car out once. I didn't expect to like Boston as much as I did, and the next time I return for a visit, I'll definitely stay here again.

I've just returned from a 4 night stay at the Omni Parker House, Boston. We stayed in one if their extremely comfortable suites, the Rose Kennedy Suite, so felt very spoilt.

The hotel is a perfect location to see Boston & experience the Freedom Trail. Everything we wanted to experience was walking distance & to travel further, public transport is just around the corner.

We mostly ate out, Boston offering so many great places to eat, but we did have a delicious brunch in the dining room one morning. The service was warm & friendly the Boston Benedict was delicious, as was the crab cake Benedict.

The hotel is historic, comfortable, well run, friendly & efficient. It is expensive but wonderful & I would highly recommend it.

This hotel was fabulous in every way for our combination business/pleasure trip. We stayed in a suite with a pull-out sofabed to accommodate my 17 year old daughter. While my husband worked, she and I explored Boston. The staff was friendly and quick to meet our every need. The hotel has a rich and fascinating history (JFK proposed to Jackie here, among many, MANY other amazing things!). The property is beautiful and well-maintained. The location is ideal for exploration, close to many historical sites (the Kings Chapel, circa 1660 is directly across the street). Highly recommend.

Stayed in the hotel for a week for business. The room was very small and the bathroom was exceptionally tiny.... The hotel was clean and the people at the reception/concierge were friendly. However it's worth double checking the invoice when leaving. Free Wifi is offered for 'Omni select guest', but they did add the cost of Internet to my bill (have to say as well that they removed it immediately after making them aware of it). Location is great. Overall I was a bit disappointed and think the hotel was slightly overpriced.

My husband and I got a great Priceline deal... $100/night for 2 nights. So it was a real treat to stay at the Parker House, which is just lovely and brimming with history. Our room, though small, was amazing... the bed super comfy, with fluffy and luxurious pillows and bedding. The lobby bar was a great spot to linger. We meant to try their Boston Cream Pie but were too busy enjoying a beautiful weekend. Location is terrific... very short walk to the Common, Chinatown and theater district. No complaints!
*Note about name-your-price Priceline deals: We had no view to speak of, just the ductwork "courtyard" facing other inner-facing rooms, but we were happy all the same to stay in a great hotel at a great rate. They know at the front desk it's a PL room... this is my 3rd PL booking and I don't think you can really complain when you're getting an incredible deal.

Just got back from a lovely 4 day break in Boston. This hotel is right on the freedom trail and about a 10 minute walk from Boston Harbour. The room I had was actually quite small and the bed wasn't what I would exactly consider a double but the location more than made up for this. There is a bagel shop just down the road from the hotel which is perfect for breakfast, or you can walk a little further to Quincy market and pick from foods from around the world. There's also a replica Cheers bar there too.
All in all the hotel is basic but so convenient, clean and full of friendly staff its hard to complain!

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Had a room on the 11th floor that was good sized. I had read previous reviews that complained about room & bathroom space, but I booked anyway. We didn't have a problem at all. The location was fabulous right on the Freedom Trail. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful with suggestions on what to see and where to dine at night. We were not impressed with the breakfast buffet that was included with our room. Our issue with this was resolved. Would definitely stay here again.
