On paper, in brochures and from hotel media, this accommodation looks just like any other four star stay in a historical building in downtown Boston. But, to many arriving on flights to Boston, the Omni Parker House Hotel becomes so much more.
The Omni might best be known for its introduction of the Boston Crème Pie into local bakeries, or perhaps just as a hotel that once hired Emeril Lagasse to spice up its culinary ensemble.
It might even have a name built up for itself because of the luxurious hotel and amenities it provides to patrons. What it doesn't really want you to know, however, is the simple fact of its haunted 10th floor.
To some reading this, the 10th floor might be officially off-limits; to others, the ones interested in giving themselves a little spook in the spirit of Halloween, the 10th floor becomes the ultimate destination.
It is here on the 10th floor of the Omni Parker House Hotel where a man dressed in period clothes has been spotted outside room 1078, reportedly resembling the spirit of Mr. Harvey Parker himself.
Since the initial sighting, he has been spotted by several others, including by a mother and daughter staying in room 1012 where Mr. Parker asked the little girl if she was enjoying her stay.
There have also been complaints of rocking chair noises keeping guests awake when there are no rocking chairs in the entire building.
The third floor is also said to have some ghostly activity occurring. It is on this floor that Charlotte Cushman passed, as well as a businessman in room 303. The elevators now go to the third floor without being called, and after several complaints of room 303 being haunted, it has been converted into a closet.
Other haunted occurrences in the Omni Parker House Hotel include orbs going down the staircases and a security officer seeing a shadow of a man that immediately disappeared.
If you're not too spooked by the thought of sharing a room with a ghost, then the Omni Parker House Hotel in downtown Boston is screaming for an October getaway stay! While you're there, be sure to check out some of these Boston tours!

Travel Footwear for Women: 3 Tried & True FavoritesComments: 0Rating: 0 / 0
Choosing footwear for trips can be challenging. Of course, bringing the right gear to keep your feet comfortable depends on what you plan on doing during the trip and the climate of the place you’ll be staying. In addition to any “specialty” shoe I might need (hiking boots, for example), I always bring comfortable and versatile footwear that won’t slow me down. One suggestion I always give is to wear your travel shoes a lot before you leave to make sure that they are broken in and comfortable for your trip. Here are three types of shoes that have served me well over my years of traveling....read more
