Steeped in reverent history and where the Parker House Roll and Boston Cream Pie originated. It’s a special Boston landmark.
AAA Inspector Notes
Built in 1855 by Harvey Parker, this is reputed to be Boston's oldest hotel and the birthplace of the Boston cream pie. Its opulent lobby exudes elegance and grace of the gilded age. The location is convenient to the theater district, the ‘T’, and is one block to Boston Common. The furnishings and style honor the hotel's design in its heyday. Rooms vary in size, from quite small to comfortable; and, each with plush super-soft white bedding, robes and thick oversize towels. Many historical events and famous guests have stayed at this hotel. Take a peek at the press room where JFK announced his candidacy for Congress or request table number 40 in the main dining room where he proposed to Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. Charles Dickens resided here for more than two years while he wrote and performed 'A Christmas Carol' for the first time. He would rehearse in front of a large gilded mirror that is now on display near the press room. As with many old hotels, this one has its fair share of ghost stories. Those interested in the supernatural may want to wander the halls of the 10th floor where it has been said that the ghost of the original owner still roams. Smoke free premises. 551 units. 14 stories, interior corridors. Accessibility (Call).
