History

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, the hotel is 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 the location is the 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, the Executive Chef prepares classic New England cuisine with contemporary flair in 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.

This 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 the Select Guest Rewards customer loyalty program. Whether traveling with a partner, family, friends, or traveling for business, the timeless charm, modern amenities, culinary creations, and gracious hospitality guarantee a wonderful stay for all.

The Boston Cream Pie and Parker House Rolls
The delicious Boston Cream Pie delicacy, a custard-filled cake laden with chocolate frosting, was created at Parker's Restaurant in 1856, and now finds itself the official state dessert of Massachusetts. The original recipe of Parker House Rolls was also created here, and was kept a secret until 1933 when they were requested at an opulent dinner with President Franklin Roosevelt.

Omni Parker House, Boston, a member of Historic Hotels of America since 2006, dates back to 1855.
