The Omni Parker House

An historic hotel experience.

The Parker House hotel, currently operated by Omni comes with an illustrious 150 year history.  It is the longest continuously operating hotel in the U.S.

JFK has a long been tied to this hotel having made his first speech here at 6 years old (at a party for his grandfather where he was asked to say "This is the best grandfather a child ever had"), to his announcement of his candidacy for the Congress and to his proposal to Jacqueline Bouvier at the Parker Restaurant.

Malcolm X worked here as a busboy and Ho Chi Minh worked as a baker in the pastry shop.

Staples of American Cuisine - Parker House Rolls, Scrod and Boston Cream Pie were all invented here.

And best of all, there's an H&M around the corner!
