I have stayed at many of the omni hotels. This particular omni was disappointing in comparison. Bathroom had chipped and moldy tile. Room was dated and tired. Wish it was better. I mentioned it to the manager but they said all the rooms were equally sad 😞
My wife and I loved our stay here. It was our first time in Boston, and this hotel is so central to the Freedom Trail and Boston sights. The staff was friendly and helpful, the room was clean, and we really enjoyed the Boston cream pie. It would be nice to come back after COVID so the restaurants/breakfast schedule or more normal.
One of the oldest if not the oldest hotels in Boston. Whilst the public rooms have chandeliers and oak panelling and looked steeped in history, the bedrooms are a little tired, especially the fittings in the bathroom, where the chrome had rusted due to water evaporation. However the beds and pillows were very comfortable. The hotel is ideally situated to easily walk all the major sights in Boston within 30 mins and the staff were very welcoming and helpful. One tip would be not to have a room too close to the lifts as they are rather noisy. A high floor or low floor makes no real difference.
I booked this hotel trusting the Omni brand. I was stunned to arrive to a musty, faded dowager of a hotel that hasn't seen any love or investment since the 1980s. Worn, torn, faded, scratched, mouldy and depressing. You can find much better accommodation for the same price or less.
This very old hotel is a gem. Originally built in 1855 and redone in 1927, is has the flavor of a bygone era, but with modern amenities. It is located right on the Freedom Trail, within walking distance of much a tourist would want to see in Boston. "Heaven, by Hotel Standards" written by Susan Wilson tells the history of the hotel and is a who's who of famous guests. The hotel claims to be the inventor of Parker House rolls and Boston Creme Pie. Their restaurant is open only for breakfast and lunch, however. Two bars and a snack/coffee/gift shop are on the premises, so food is available in the evenings. The rooms, though lovely, do not have refrigerators. Other restaurants abound in the area. The Omni Parker House was worth the money we paid, just for the experience and the convenient location. …
The condition of our room was truly a shock to me. The "Staples" style desk chair was worn to being threadbare and shredded, the couch material was ripped, the lamp shade was half destroyed, the housekeepers didn't even remove all of the garbage when they :cleaned" the room, the tissue and toilet paper was the roughest, cheapest product I have ever had in a hotel. I spent over $1300 for 2 nights including my car and all of their taxes and fees. Will never stay at another Omni property again. Pictures attached!
Mediocre but in prime location . Bathroom is dated and super tiny. It was a bit of a challenge to dress and put on makeup in the bathroom. The Hotel has a lot of history and is located near to all the must see spots in Boston.
Rooms may be small, but the Parker House is full of history and charm. Centrally located, you can walk to many interesting parts of the city.. Close to public transportation .The staff was very friendly. Special shoutout to Maza and Abraham who made sure we had our essentials every day. Thanks.
Hotel is in major need of an upgrade. 1. Rooms are a super small 2. The bathroom is comically small and there is nowhere to put any toiletries 3. The shower is in the bathtub 4. The climate control in the room is horrible. It’s either beyond freezing or hot and the air only blows onto one side of the bed since it’s not central air Usually Omni’s are way nicer but this one need some renovations.
This is really a lovely hotel in such a great location. Yes, the bathrooms are tiny and the view from our room was next door’s wall (which made the room dark) but we did have a very large room. I removed a star because of the difficult front desk. We arrived early and rather than look to see if our room was ready, we were sent away. When we approached the Bell Captain to see if we could store our luggage, he asked if the desk had checked for us and we said not. Eventually, the desk looked and said our room was ready. That apart, the hotel was fine.
