Overview

Step into the lobby of the Omni Parker House Hotel, and you are instantly immersed in history. The longest continuously operating hotel in the United States, the hotel has hosted every president between Ulysses S. Grant and Bill Clinton for dinners and conferences. It’s here that John F. Kennedy made his first public speech at the age of 6, later in life announced his candidacy for the U.S. Senate and even proposed to Jacqueline Bouvier. Literary legends have also held court within its walls, as Charles Dickens gave his first public reading of “A Christmas Carol” and Henry Wadsworth Longfellow drafted “Paul Revere’s Ride." 

At the corner of Tremont and School streets, the hotel puts guests at the border of the financial district and Beacon Hill neighborhoods. Just a short stroll down Tremont Street leads to Boston Common, the oldest park in the country. The hotel conveniently sits on the Freedom Trail, a collection of sites along a path that pays homage to the story of the American Revolution.

Culinary innovation flourishes at the hotel -- Boston cream pie and Parker House rolls were invented at the on-site Parker’s Restaurant. Guest rooms are equipped with vintage decor and modern amenities like plush robes and triple sheeting. The hotel’s impressive fitness center is equipped with everything from a bench press to elliptical machines, and it's complimentary to guests.

The beds were very uncomfortable. They sagged terribly. Like sleeping in a bowl. Valet parking was a disaster!

This old, historic hotel is lovely and perfectly situated to walk to many of Boston’s landmarks. The staff surprised me with a birthday card and a delicious piece of what else - Boston cream pie. The “busboys” (men at the entrance) were so welcoming and helpful, as was the concierge. All great except the water pressure in the shower could have been better.

We felt that dinner could have been presented in a more appealing way. Our waitress was fair, at best and seemed much more attentive to other guests.
