Omni Parker House 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"—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.
Opposite the old City Hall and practically on the Freedom Trail, this hotel is undeniably Boston. It's where JFK proposed to Jackie, where the Boston cream pie was invented, and where Charles Dickens gave his first U.S. reading of A Christmas Carol. What better base from which to learn about our nation's heritage than America's oldest continuously operating hotel?
