    Nothing beats a slice of Boston Cream Pie at Omni Parker House. This decadent dessert has two layers of sponge cake with a pastry cream in between, topped with a layer of chocolate ganache. Read more

    The carrot cake is gluten free and it's to die for. The Boston creme pie is good but love the carrot cake. Reserve a spot at "the kennedy table," where JFK proposed to Jackie

    PERFECT LOCATION! Less than a half mile walk from Quincy market and other attractions, rooms on the smaller side (the bathroom especially) but still very comfortable! Wifi is $9.95 a day

    Escape to the Freedom Trail Suite with bunk beds, beanbags, a chalkboard wall, and Colonial costumes. Don't miss a slice of Boston Cream Pie -- hotel chefs have been serving it since 1855. Read more

    What a beautiful, historical landmark hotel in the heart of Boston. The history combined with the elegance makes it a must-stay. The housekeeping was phenomenal. Reserve a room with a view.

    You want history? You got history. The walls in this place talk. Great for a late night scotch. Ask the bartender to tell you a story.

    The Parker House has many claims to fame, including when John F. Kennedy announced his candidacy for US Congress in 1946. Something to contemplate while eating the Boston Cream Pie invented in-house.

    Historic hotel extremely well maintained with great service and food. Both "Boston Cream Pie" and "Parker House Rolls" were invented here. Try both!

    It was in this hotel that Boston cream pie – really a layered cake with custard filling and chocolate glaze on top – was concocted in 1855.

    The ghost of this historic hotel's original owner, Harvey Parker, is said to wander the halls and walk through walls. Room 303 was reported to be the most haunted until it was turned into a closet.

    Beautiful historic hotel near everything! Great service and staff, very clean but rooms are entirely too small and beds were terrible! Very small and uncomfortable!

    Go to the Conceirge Desk and ask for a free copy of the Omni Parker House History Book. Great stories of America's Most Historic Hotel. They might even take you on a tour of the hotel.

    A must when playing tourist in Boston. Feels like a throwback to another era plus the Boston cream pie is swoon worthy.

    Public Bathroom Pro-tip: They are not located in the lobby of this historic hotel. Instead, go up the stairwell by the Parker restaurant to the mezzanine floor.

    While its nice, the Omni only has free wifi in the lobby. In the room you must pay for your internet via ethernet cable. Id like the liberty of wifi. but overall a nice stay

    There's a crazy old woman in the lobby that will shush your conversation. She knows all the employees names so I guess she lives here or something.
