We're glad to know that you and your friends enjoyed your trip to Boston!
Boston was pretty busy when I booked this hotel, so they felt they could charge $775 per night for an average room with a tiny bathroom and blinds that don't block out the sun. There was a view of the alley. The maids didn't come while I was gone from 7:30 AM to 10:00 PM. I wouldn't go back. I typically stay at the Marriot and for 1/3 to 1/2 the price you get way more.
It's been very busy here in Boston this month so, yes, room rates will be higher but something was amiss that we didn't clean your room while you were gone. Is it possible that you left your Privacy hanger on the door? In any event, we apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for staying with us.
Stopped in for breakfast where we were promptly seated, greeted and served our drinks. The cornedbeef hash was very good and the boston cream pie was excellent. This is an upscale hotel so price point is high. Service, food and atmosphere was worth it for a Boston visit. Have to get the original boston creme pie.
It was nice to read about your good experience in Parker's Restaurant and, yes, we do serve Boston Cream Pie for breakfast!
I can’t say enough good things about our recent stay at the Omni Parker House. From check-in to check-out, everything went smoothly. The staff was friendly, courteous, and helpful. Although small, the room was clean and well-maintained. Staying in such an old and historic hotel, you have to remember that the rooms are bound to be small and honestly, if you’re on vacation, you don’t really need that much space anyways. The location was absolutely perfect. It’s situated near spots on the Freedom Trail, it’s downtown, and it’s great walkability (about 10-15 minutes) to the North End area where we spent most of our leisure time. We visited the hotel’s bar, The Last Hurrah, a couple of times and were served by Mike who was a joy to speak with. He gave us wonderful restaurant recommendations and was enjoyable to visit with. If you’re looking for a hotel downtown with good amenities, walkability to hot spots, and the historic charm (hello JFK fans, like myself), the Omni Parker is your place!
Thanks for posting your review and letting us know you enjoyed your stay!
Great location, beautiful historic ambiance, dated plumbing. The worst is lack of WiFi in the room ( no signal) and even mobile connection is not working well. Room is very small. Definitely not convenient for business.
We're not sure what you mean by "lack of WiFi" because we offer WiFi throughout the hotel. Could you have had issues with your cell phone, perhaps? In any event, we apologize for an inconvenience you may have experienced during your stay.
Spent two nites at the Omni Parker House. This hotel has a very friendly staff and is located in the heart of Boston. In just a few minutes you can walk to the Boston Commons, or the Faneuil Hall area. The T station is less than a five minute walk, and you can catch a direct train to Fenway Park on the green line. We walked to the Boston Garden for a concert and it only took ten minutes.
Parking is limited but the hotel offers valet parking for $50 a day. If your going to the Boston area to see the sites or an event at the Garden I highly recommend this hotel.
We appreciate you staying with us and recommending us to others....many thanks!
