Fodor's Review

If any hotel says "Boston," it's this one, where JFK proposed to Jackie, and Charles Dickens gave his first reading of "A Christmas Carol"β€”in fact, you may well see a Dickens impersonator in the lobby, since history tours always include the Parker House on their routes. Though it's America's oldest continuously operating hotel, it received a $30-million makeover in 2008, so you can steep yourself in Boston history while also enjoying a flat-screen TV. As at many city lodgings, the guestrooms are a tad small, but here they're nicely turned out with cherry-wood furniture, red-and-gold Roman shades, ivory wall coverings, and cushy mattress covers. The Omni's famous Boston Cream Pie is on hand (even for breakfast), and you can work it off in a 24-hour gym packed with cardio and weight equipment.
