    Superior Customer Service!

    This is a long post, so bear with me! But if you’re on the fence, of choosing a venue, hopefully this will help you see what an incredible venue/organization Omni Parker House is! When my now husband, Jon, and I were looking at venues in Boston in the Spring of 2019, we quickly became defeated. Even with our decent budget, our dream of a city wedding didn’t seem realistic. Jon still set up tours/meetings at every Boston venue with the hope that maybe we could make something work. The moment I stepped foot into the Omni Parker House, I fell in love. It was absolutely stunning and has a rich history that sets it apart from other hotel venues. I was certain that we would never be able to afford a venue like it, but somehow, not only did it fall within our budget, but it included so much! The staff at Omni Parker House made us feel like valued customers even before any contracts were signed. They were professional and accommodating, allowing for my parents who live out of town to be involved with every step of the process. The high standards that the Omni Parker House possesses put us at ease in knowing our wedding would be top quality. We scheduled our 225 person wedding for July 2020…And then COVID hit, and we, along with many other 2020 couples, were forced to postpone our wedding for a year. Throughout this time, the staff at Omni Parker House kept us informed of any information they received about reopening and guidelines almost immediately. Therefore, we always felt in the loop, even if it were simply an update saying that they had no updates. As our date was quickly approaching, we visited the Omni Parker House where we reviewed what our wedding day would look like. The city of Boston’s guidelines were stricter than the state’s guidelines, and while they were put into place to ensure everyone’s health and safety, it didn’t make for a “fun” wedding by any stretch of the imagination. Our disappointment and stress level was at an all-time high knowing our 225-person (even a 100-person), city wedding was out of the question. The Omni Parker House team worked with us to create any work-arounds or solutions to create a more enjoyable wedding that still adhered to the health guidelines, but their hands were tied. In knowing that they wouldn’t be able to provide the wedding experience we had hoped for (through NO fault of their own), the team at the Omni Parker House offered us a full refund to put towards another venue outside of the city that could allow for more people. In hearing about other venues/vendors who charged us astronomical fees for rescheduling weddings that were originally scheduled to happen in the height of the pandemic/lockdown, we were certain that switching venues would be out of the question…however, Omni Parker House OFFERED this to us. If that doesn’t speak to the their level of customer service, I don’t know what does! The fact that a company who could have easily just kept our money, forcing us cut down our guest list from 225 people to 60 and have a wedding that we wouldn’t be completely satisfied with, but chose not to, is a testament to their strong commitment to customer satisfaction. I truly cannot thank the staff of Omni Parker House enough for investing their time and service with us. While we weren’t able to have our “dream city wedding”, Omni Parker House allowed us the opportunity to have a wedding that we could share with all of our friends and family which was the most important aspect of the day for us. If you want a beautiful wedding and a team that will do anything to ensure you have the wedding of your dreams, I cannot recommend Omni Parker House enough!

    Omni Parker House's reply:

    While we would have much preferred to host your wedding and have you post a glowing review of your event, I deeply appreciate that you took the time to praise our team for working with you in YOUR best interest, even though it meant having your wedding elsewhere. Our goal is to create memorable experiences for all our guests, all the time. It’s gratifying to see that we accomplished this with you and your family. Perhaps we could host an anniversary party for you one of these days?

    Sincerely,

    John Murtha

    Everything was Perfect!

    I can not that the people at the Omni Parker House enough. I had never been to a wedding before, so I had no idea what went into planning one. From beginning to end this hotel was amazing. At our first meeting, our coordinator, Richard, really took the time to show us how beautiful a wedding there could be. He walked us through each space and talked us through how each space would be set up and how it would look (something no other venue did!). He was always so accommodating with my requests! My family lives out of town, but when they came in town, he made an appointment to show them everything.

    The staff here was also incredible. Everything was coordinated so well from the ceremony down to the second each course was served for dinner. They coordinated with our outside vendors and really eased our stress.

    On top of everything else, you really can’t ask for a more beautiful venue. There was so much rich history and stunning views of the city. Coupled with the beautiful woodwork and decorations, we did very little extra decorating, and everything was beautiful!

    I can not say enough good things about our experience with the Omni Parker House. We really can’t imagine our wedding going any better. Everything was absolutely perfect!

The Omni Parker house is one of Boston's Premiere Wedding Venues. The staff is very professional. The catering is always amazing. The over-all experience of having your wedding there is top-notch. Their staff will make everything go smoothly so as to have the perfect Boston wedding. I have photographed many weddings and events there and they will go out of their way to help you. I'd recommend the Omni to anyone for an event or wedding. Silver Pix Studios is humbled to be on their preferred professionals list of a hotel who's history is as long as the history of Boston and America. JFK proposed here to Jackie, and many more historic events have happened at this beautiful hotel. It actually is the longest continuously operating hotel in America. There is so much ambiance here from the delicate ornate crown moulding everywhere to the antique decor and luxurious warm feeling any historic building has. Having a wedding here is unlike any place in the city. We truly love everything about this hotel.
