“A nice kind of retro”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

Omni made some good decisions here. Stately, traditional, and a real competence in serving is the theme here and the old independent Parker House wasn't tampered with nor made into a cookie cutter "modern" chain hotel. From the front desk to the maid service to the valet parking staff, all were professional, courteous, and skilled. A few flaws? Sure. A bit of sprucing up, especially in the halls would be nice. (I half expected the twin girls from The Shining to appear) Also, the room size (standard) matched Parisian equivalents in the " tight squeeze department'. This was more than offset by its outstanding location near the Commons and very accessible pricing in a very expensive town for lodging

Good hotel and nicely situated. Rooms comfortable but rather small and we looked out onto a wall. Would recommend if you can get it on special offer as it is very central and staff were helpful. We didn't eat here but the bar was good.

Rooms are rather small but well appointed and comfortable. I came for business so was out at a conference all day. Otherwise, if I'd been wanting to use the room more it might have felt claustrophobic. Service was very prompt and cordial. I think it is a good value hotel for the level of quality.

Olde world charm, but needs a little TLC. Nothing serious, but looking a little shabby in parts. Friendly staff and a very good restaurant. Rooms are very small, too small to negotiate comfortably in fact. However the location is great, close enough to walk to all of the sights and shopping. Beacon Hill is on the doorstep, the Common really close, North End in easy reach, as is Back Bay.

Room Tip: Look for a larger room, maybe even a suite.

We took a cruise out of Boston to Quebec. We found the Parker House on the internet and saw they had a package that included a tour (Freedom Trail) and breakfast. Staying in Boston is expensive but this eased the pain and the Parker house is a perfect location! We loved the hotel and Boston!

We selected the Parker House due it's history, reputation and location. It was excellent. The staff was wonderful from check-in to check-out. The room was lovely. The restaurant was great, food excellent. and we really enjoyed all the heavy wood detail and the history of the hotel. It was within walking to many great site-seeing places. We would stay there again!
