I spent a long weekend at the Omni Parker House Boston with my other half in February. The hotel is in a great location and the room rates were good for a weekend stay. Close proximity to a number of "T" stops and a selection of restaurants, coffee shops and stores within walking distance of the hotel made the location of the property its greatest asset.
The lobby, rooms and staff are formal. The staff were cold and aloof. From the concierge, check-in staff and even the bar tender I did not feel like we were welcome guests.
Our room, which according to the front desk staff was an upgrade from their basic room, had everything a business or leisure traveler really needed except space. I understand that this is a city-center, historic property, but even in Europe I have never stayed in such a small, cramped room. You could not wheel a carry-on bag between the end of the bed and the dresser with the TV on it. The bathroom was clean but equally small and lacking any counter space (just a pedestal sink).
I would not stay at this property again. There are too many other hotels in this section of Boston that offer more space and better service in the same price range.
