Where to Eat

Parker's - Appointed with oak paneling and Waterford chandeliers, Parker's serves American and Continental cuisine, including its famous Parker House Rolls and Boston Cream Pie. John F. Kennedy proposed to Jacqueline Bouvier at Table 40.

Parker's Bar - Mahogany paneling, a fireplace, and stained-glass windows provide appealing surroundings for cocktails, along with dining from the Parker's menu. The spot was popular with Boston's Saturday Club, a 19th-century literary group that included Thoreau, Emerson, and Oliver Wendell Holmes.

The Last Hurrah - This bar draws locals and Beacon Hill politicians for drinks and meals. It has a lighter, more casual feel than Parker's and is a good spot for people-watching both inside and out along School and Tremont streets.

Historical hotel in need of renovation

The hotel is nicely located, has a history but the rooms are very small, the bed is certainly not for two people and the whole establishment needs a renovation immediately! The staff is friendly and helpful.

Cons: HVAC: It was February and we found it difficult to find a stable temperature setting that was comfortable.
This heritage hotel is part of US history and the iconic sites of the Revolutionary War are literally across the street. Superb restaurants nearby, easy walk to unique shopping at Faneuil Hall / Quincy Market / North & South Markets and the Boston Public Market. Our room was small yet comfortable but we did not go there to spend a lot of time in our room anyway. Food is very good but understand that meal sittings follow a resort hotel discipline; e.g., no late breakfast or early lunch, but no worries -- try the local places steps away. They actually ran out of their signature Boston Cream Pie dessert twice during our stay (President's day weekend). But we loved it there and would go back any time!

Very convenient location

I've business meeting on State street, so I picked Omni plaza hotel; it worked out really well. I was concerned about finding a parking space for my rental car, but lucky enough Boston street parking are free during Sunday and National holidays. In general, there is only validate parking available for the hotel, but is about $40 per day, kind of expensive, but if you don't know Boston well, that's probably your best bet. Other than the potential issue with parking, this is a great hotel. In fact, you probably don't need a rental, since the hotel is about $10-15 taxi ride to Logan Airport, and near T (subway) station. Try to take advantage of the public transportation..........good luck

Easy to get to from south station and the T. There are no amenities that all hotels offer now and you have to pay for wi-fi, breakfast is crazy expensive and the dining room sits empty while people leave to find a cup of coffee due to high costs. Expect dinner to be pricey but not breakfast. Staff very nice, building beautiful, with lots of history.

Perfect location and experience in terms of guest relations, this is an excellent option for downtown Boston. The only downside is the small rooms, but that's very much to be expected with a historic hotel.

Classy historic hotel

I absolutely loved the atmosphere of the hotel. It has modern amenities but without losing the historic feel - and there's plenty of history there! The room was absolutely cozy. I stayed in an economy single room (one full size bed) and it was perfect for me as a solo traveler. The beds are super comfy! Great location too, right in the heart of the downtown and right next to stops on the Freedom Trail. LOVE this hotel. Already planning to stay again!

The staff at the reception were great to deal with and very efficient. The hotel is very old and has a lot of history but they've done a great job at maintaining the property so that everything is clean and functional but still maintains its history. The walls are a little thin and you can hear people talking outside in the halls but it was infrequent and easy to ignore. I would highly recommend the bar and restaurant on site for a quick lunch or dessert, the food was delicious!

Pat's Victory Parade

5 out of 5

Posted Feb 12, 2017
Pros: Staff were friendly; location; price
Location: This hotel is right in the heart of the city and walking distance to everything.
What a perfect location in the heart of Boston. I drove down to watch the Patriot's Victory Parade (along with a million others). The hotel was right on the parade route and the staff were definitely into it. We had drinks in the bar the night before and were treated well. Pricing was average for Boston. The room was a bit spartan but the bed was comfortable. Would definitely recommend and return.
