The Omni Parker House was the perfect venue for our Boston themed wedding (two locals from rivaling Boston neighborhoods getting married - what other theme could it be?) The room was spectacular and much more affordable and elegant than other nearby hotels, and Alison and Elaine (our wedding coordinators) were top notch. They guided us through the event and made sure every thing went off perfectly.

Jennifer and Elaine helped to make our wedding a perfect, stress-free , and seamless experience. The food was fantastic, as was the beautiful new redone ballroom. Our guests all said that they had an amazing time and for that we are extremely grateful. We would work with the Omni and their staff again in a heartbeat.

I could not have asked for a more beautiful place for my wedding! Even though it was pricey, I fell in love with it from the moment I walked in, and it did not disappoint while planning and during the reception. Our coordinator, Jennifer, was awesome and so accommodating, I don't know if I could have gotten through it with out her! She was always easy to contact and quick to respond, even with last minute requests that might have been troublesome (adding guests, changing table sizes, etc). The amazing staff plus the beautiful decor and views from the rooftop ballroom made this a night to remember!

Out of all the great hotels in Boston, we chose the Omni Parker House because no other place offered the service, the view, the location and the delicious food that this place offered. This was the very first venue we visited, and after seeing many more, we quickly decided this was the best. Jen Nicholson was absolutely amazing- she was so easy to work and always responded to emails right away. Since we planned our wedding out of state, there were many things in Boston that I was unfamiliar with, and she helped with everything. The ballroom where the reception was held was renovated over the winter and we were the first wedding there; I loved the ballroom before the renovation, and after the renovation, it was even more fabulous than I could imagine. The views are unparallaled, the food was so good, and our bridal suite and the parents' rooms were perfect. We got to do many of the things that grooms and brides always say they don't get to do at their weddings: ate our food, ate our cake, enjoyed our bridal suite, observed all the decor, and danced the night away. Thank you Jen and the entire Omni Parker House staff!

My husband and I wanted to celebrate our wedding in a place that spoke of old world romance while keeping it modern and the Omni Parker was the perfect place for that. Our wedding was held right after Christmas so the decorations were still up and the huge Christmas tree on the roof top ballroom definitely made a wonderful warm holiday statement. The food was pretty good although I never got to taste 3 of the selected
hors d'oeuvres and that was a bit disappointing. Overall our wedding coordinator Alison did a great job capturing our vision however it did seem to take multiple emails to get a response on occasion. We also had guests from overseas cancel because of an illness in the family and also a impending snow storm and every time I emailed Alison seemed to avoid the question asked and bring up the fact that we needed more guests to make the minimum. This was pretty annoying since I was already stressed enough and it seemed all she cared about was the minimum spend.

The one star quality of service is due to the bartenders that night, I have had multiple guests tell me after the event how incredibly rude they were to guests the entire night. When you take the time and money to put together such a special event, the last comment you want to hear are complaints around being treated poorly by event staff. I will also say that the bartenders were even rude to me and when I asked his name he pointed to his name card and said "it's right here, you can read"...... This was at the very end of the night but I was pretty shocked, upset and did complain. I would say that unfortunately it was this experience that really made a wonderful night and what we wanted as wonderful memories a bit tainted but I would still recommend because the ball room is so beautiful and the food was pretty good.

The Omni Parker House was exactly what I wanted in a wedding venue - a timeless venue that has the ability to transport its vistors back to "old Boston". We held our ceremony in the Press Room, and our reception in the roof top ballroom. This was the perfect location for a 200 guest event. The Press Room was absolutely gorgeous, and we were able to marry in front of a beautiful fireplace. We also had our rehersal dinner in one of their conference rooms, and brunch on Sunday morning in the Press Room.

I worked with Alison who helped me coordinate everything from day one - she was a life saver. It was great having her as a contact point for all of my crazy wedding related questions. She also helped me with things that I would never have thought of, and helped me schedule my whole day.

The food was WONDERFUL, the service was great. I felt incredibly well taken care of. I loved that the Omni and its staff worked so fluidly with my vendors, so that I didn't have to be a middle man anywhere. I was able to put this all together with the help of the Omni, and my vendors, without a wedding planner, which is huge!

The only complaint that I have, is that when I arrived on friday (my rehersal was at 5) - I was not able to check in early (as requested), and I actually had to wait almost a whole hour (check in was at 3, I was able to get to my room at 4). There was also a lot of confusion about where my room was, and often things were delivered to the wrong room.

In the large scheme of things, this was all very minor - but it did cause for some confusion and frustration. If I could do it all over again I would most certainly use the Omni Parker House, and I reccomend it to any other bride who is looking for a venue where they can get the whole package - food, drink, coordinator, multiple events, and hotel rooms. Thank you Alison and the Omni Parker house!

Our wedding at Omni was absolutely amazing! I would highly recommend this venue to anyone looking for a classic, elegant, Boston wedding. The ballroom is amazing with a great view of the city. The service is incredible from everyone to our coordinator there to the waitstaff that served the food at the reception. And the food, oh boy! My wedding guests are still talking it - most saying they thought the cocktail hour was the meal there was so much food and of such great quality!

Our contact at Omni (Jen) was beyond helpful every step of the way. From the first time we met her (to view the ballroom and go over the package offerings at Omni) we felt completely taken care of and knew that she was truly dedicated to making our wedding special. She was very helpful in picking/choosing the things we wanted and that would stay in our budget. The prices are a little overwhelming but they are all includsive and they can be accommodated to any budget (i.e. we nixed a course and served just salad/entree, we nixed the champagne toast and wine served at the table in order for it to fit our budget). Each time we met with her I was greeted with a hug and she seemed to have just as much excitement about my wedding as I did. Even up to an hour before our wedding she was accommodating and attentive as I had emailed her on our drive from the church to Omni re: a table switch. When we got to cocktail hour, I was informed that the switch had been made, no questions asked.

Most importantly, the food was amazing. Thank you for making this the most memorable, fun night of our lives!

The venue is historic and beautiful, the food was amazing, and we did the Boston Cream Pie as our wedding cake. The service was tremendous and professional. On the other hand, we paid for top shelf open bar and didn't get things (e.g. brands) we wanted. In fact, we got a lot of stuff I wouldn't consider "top shelf" and that was disappointing. Most everything went well, and the planners were great, but the billing also was a mess. We got charged via some credit card processing glitch and ended up being overcharged an additional $12,000 or so after the wedding. Stressful trying to clear it up before we left for the honeymoon (really needed that credit line) but we finally got it resolved. Ultimately, the place was great, the food and service far above average, and the downsides were few and relatively manageable.

We held our October wedding reception at the Omni Parker House, and we could not have picked a better venue. Everything about the venue, from the fabulous old hotel and beautiful rooftop ballroom to the professional staff and delcious food, was excellent. Alison, the wedding coordinator we worked with during the planning process, was invaluable. She was so pleasant to work with, and she was very responsive whenever I had questions, making excellent suggestions throughout the process and directing me to other people within the Omni Parker for things like hotel reservations for guests, etc. The bridal suite we had to get ready in was amazing, and the entire evening went perfect!!!

The Parker House hosted my wedding reception, our day after brunch, and MANY of our guests stayed at the hotel. The short review: our experience was SPECTACULAR. The long reivew:...

--Planning process: We knew we were looking for a downtown location for our wedding reception but after seeing -many- hotels we became doubtful that we would find a place that lived up to our standards and wasn't going to cost a fortune. When we toured The Parker House we absolutely fell in love with the ambiance and the friendly staff...and the gorgeous ballroom! The location was also precisely what we wanted. And the price was actually doable which was a total surprise. They even hosted us for a complimentary dinner at Parker's so we could try the food--we were ecstatic. The food is amazing! Their standard package comes with pretty much everything but the kitchen sink which is great but we were also able to customize it to meet our specific needs. Our wedding coordinator, Jennifer, was incredibly responsive during our engagement. I wouldn't call myself a "Bridezilla" but I was very organized, specific, and knew what I wanted. I sent her ALOT of emails and she never made me feel like I was harassing her or that I was crazy. She was very patient and also timely with her responses. She also offered great solutions to issues that came up. For instance, we were able to have both a suite for the girls to get ready in AND a great room for the guys as well. We also came in slightly under our minimum and instead of just offering to add more food, we added in a Day-After Brunch in a GORGEOUS conference room for all of our guests!

The Big Day: Its difficult for me to put into type how wonderful our wedding weekend was. Our rooms at the Parker House to get ready in were perfect: clean and picturesque and totally comfortable. They even brought us ice water and glasses all day. The hotel was stunning that day and provided a great backdrop for all of the photos. And the ballroom....completely stunning, a total dream. When I saw it with the flowers and uplighting for the first time I got so emotional. The team at the Parker House did a flawless job of executing my vision and of making the whole evening glamorous. One of the most important details for us was the food and it was mouth watering. Just the best wedding food I have ever tasted. From the passed apps to the delectable sea bass, it was SO good. They also perfectly executed our signature drinks (at no additional cost). My Groom, our parents, and I all had MANY guests come up to us and say it was honestly the best wedding they had ever been to.

The Evening: We hosted the after party at Parker's Bar which they were kind enough to keep open later than usual for us! We also pre-ordered pizza's to be delivered to the bar when we arrived and they were delish too. Our guests loooooved Parker's and had so much fun continuing the party down there. My new husband and I went to our suite after Parker's and it was lovely as well. They had champagne and chocolate stawberries waiting for us which was a thoughtful touch.

The Brunch: PERFECTION. Our parents were so incredibly grateful to have such a lovely way to say goodbye to all of the travelers. We had mostly out of town guests and they appreciated the breakfast and the chance to spend more time together. The food was up to the stellar standard they had set the night before as was the service. And they even used the leftover flowers from the reception to decorate. After the brunch, the valet staffed worked tirelessly to help us load everything into our cars.

The (very few) negatives: I did not appreciate at all that they charge $3.00 per room to deliver out of town guest bags. This is normally a simple thing that gets given to each guest at check in and their process seemed more confusing and it cost us over $100. When I asked about it they told me it was "a union issue". Even if thats the case, the hotel should absorb that cost and not pass it on to couples already spending SO much money. Its a cost of doing business. Secondly, our uplighting company offers a "confetti bomb" that we were very excited about. The Parker House told us that in order to have it we would have to pay $400 clean-up charge. That was too much so we had to nix it which was a bummer. Lastly, the price per hotel room was a problem for many of our guests. We totally understand that Fall in downtown Boston means expensive accommodations anywhere, but we were upset we couldn't get a rate anywhere $200 or less per room when we had so many rooms booked. As a result, we had guests at several hotels all over the place which made some other aspects more complicated.

Given the opportunity to plan my whole wedding over again, we would 100% choose The Omni Parker House again. Their excellent service, delicious food, amazing location, and STUNNING ballroom all made for the wedding of my dreams. Thank you to everyone there for making my experience as a Bride exceptional.

The (very few) negatives: I did not appreciate at all that they charge $3.00 per room to deliver out of town guest bags. This is normally a simple thing that gets given to each guest at check in and their process seemed more confusing and it cost us over $100. When I asked about it they told me it was "a union issue". Even if thats the case, the hotel should absorb that cost and not pass it on to couples already spending SO much money. Its a cost of doing business. Secondly, our uplighting company offers a "confetti bomb" that we were very excited about. The Parker House told us that in order to have it we would have to pay $400 clean-up charge. That was too much so we had to nix it which was a bummer. Lastly, the price per hotel room was a problem for many of our guests. We totally understand that Fall in downtown Boston means expensive accommodations anywhere, but we were upset we couldn't get a rate anywhere $200 or less per room when we had so many rooms booked. As a result, we had guests at several hotels all over the place which made some other aspects more complicated.

Given the opportunity to plan my whole wedding over again, we would 100% choose The Omni Parker House again. Their excellent service, delicious food, amazing location, and STUNNING ballroom all made for the wedding of my dreams. Thank you to everyone there for making my experience as a Bride exceptional.

I had my winter wedding at the Omni Parker House and I couldnt have been happier. From the food to the way the venue was decorated--it was more than I could of ever wanted or dreamed of. Our guests are still ranting and raving how it was tge best wedding they had ever gone to. Of course, our hard work added to the beauty of the place but overall we were very happy with the way everything turned out!!!

Well, the finished product was a very elegant, happy night. However, they were (in my opinion) dishonest with us when they told us the construction project would be completed before our wedding. The entire facade of the hotel was encased in ugly, dirty scaffolding. They made amends by discounting our costs, but it was a big disappointment. We enjoyed our night, but no photos were possible under the marquis, and our guests could not see out of their windows.

A gorgeous wedding with unbelievable service. Everyone keeps talking about how spectacular it was, the beauty of the ballroom, how good the food is, and how the Parker House envelops the traditions of Boston. I still can't think of a more perfect place to have a wedding in this city.
