A piece of history in an ideal locationFlag review
We visited the Omni Parker House for a holiday overnight, and although the hotel itself was fine (showing signs of age) the best aspect of all is its location -- just a short walk to Quincy Market, with a city neighborhood feel. Plus, it really does have a sense of history, with lovely carved woodwork in the dining room and an historic Boston atmosphere. When we first arrived, we went to the bar lounge for Boston Cream Pie, as the Omni Parker House is the birthplace of this famous dessert. It was quite different from what we expected; more of a cake, but it was still fun to try anyway. We had booked a suite for $159/night through an online deal and it was surprisingly roomy for the city and the beds were very comfortable. Our view was of a brick wall, but we were out and about so much that it was fine. The Concierge was fantastic, helping us to take full advantage of the Parker House's location by emailing restaurant recommendations in advance for a birthday dinner, and suggesting that we buy Blue Man group tickets for half price at the Faneuil Hall kiosk rather than buy ahead (great tip!). The low point of our stay was the 2 am fire alarm, forcing our evacuation into the alley. Fortunately, we had the large and yummy buffet breakfast to revive us in the morning. A say at the Omni Parker House won't be perfect in every way, but we would certainly return to it as home base for enjoying a favorite city from a great location!
Tips for Families
As mentioned above, consider buying half price tickets for Blue Man group at the Faneuil Hall kiosk. I recall that it opens at 10 am. There might be certain times/days for which this is not wise, but it saved us a lot of money and there were plenty of seats even on the day of the show.

We've been to Boston a couple of times before this trip and stayed at the Long Wharf Marriott. A much better choice than the Omni Parker. The room at the Omni was small and the bathroom had not one single surface to put any lotions or make-up or anyth...

Excellent location; we parked in a garage around the corner and left our car there for the entire weekend. We walked everywhere from the hotel. Great parks, playground, shopping, dining just around the corner. Room was clean and luxurious, although the ...
