Omni Parker HouseBoston, MA
The Omni Parker House, member of Historic Hotels of America, is proud to have the best location in the city of Boston.  Situated along the Freedom Trail, at the foot of Beacon Hill, the Boston Common and Public Garden, next to Downtown Crossing, we are minutes away from Logan International Airport, all major subway lines, the Theater District, Faneuil Hall and cultural attractions including the Museum of Fine Art and New England Aquarium.

The only aspect more famous than our location is our culinary legacy.  From hiring the first celebrity French Chef in America, Chef Sanzian, in 1855 to launching the culinary careers of Emeril Lagasse, Lydia Shire, and Jasper White, to being the birthplace of Boston Cream Pie, Parker House rolls and the term “Scrod”.  Today, our Executive Chef prepares classic New England cuisine with contemporary flair in our three outlets, including fine dining in Parker’s Restaurant and lighter, more casual fare in The Last Hurrah and Parker’s Bar, as well as banquet feasts for groups up to 400. 

Our luxury hotel has 551 guestrooms and suites and 18 function rooms including the roof top ballroom, with spectacular views of the city skyline.  Additional hotel features include, concierge service, valet parking, gym facility, room service, coffee shop, business center, wireless internet and our Select Guest Rewards customer loyalty program.  Whether you are traveling with a partner, family, friends, or traveling for business, our timeless charm, modern amenities, culinary creations and gracious hospitality guarantee a wonderful stay for all.

Dining

The historic Parker’s Restaurant Waterford crystal chandeliers and ornate hand carved woodwork provide an inviting and elegant atmosphere that is unmatched by any other establishment in Boston.  The first-class meals, gracious, attentive staff, and exceptional service has been receiving the highest of accolades since 1855.
 
Parker’s Restaurant culinary contributions include the Boston Cream Pie, Parker House Rolls and the term Scrod.  It was here where baseball greats like Babe Ruth and Ted Williams wined, dined, and unwound. And it was here, too, where generations of local and national politicians — including Ulysses S. Grant, James Michael Curley, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, John F. Kennedy, and William Jefferson Clinton —assembled for private meetings, press conferences, and power breakfasts. Today, Parker’s Restaurant culinary legacy lives on.

Parker's Restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.  Holiday exceptions.

If you'd like to unwind with a drink or lighter fare, relax in Parker's Bar or The Last Hurrah, which has been the gathering place for Boston's colorful political pantheon for close to 150 years. The bar takes its name from Edwin O'Connor's 1956 Pulitzer-Prize-winning novel "The Last Hurrah", based on the frequent patron, James Michael Curley's picturesque career as a mayor of Boston, governor of Massachusetts, U.S. Congressman, and inmate at a federal penitentiary.

Experience Historic Boston

Boston is a city rich with history from the Boston cream pie to the Boston Tea Party or the midnight ride of Paul Revere.  And the Omni Parker House puts you close to the city's best-loved locales.  Boston is a patriotic town older than America itself, so a tour through the city’s fabled streets is like a walk through time.

Stroll to Beacon Hill or the famous Orpheum Theatre, visit spirited  Cambridge and the Harvard campus or catch a ballgame at Fenway Park.  Take a walk down the Freedom Trail and shop in Quincy Market.  At the Omni Parker House Hotel, you’re a heartbeat away from the best of Beantown.
