Boston, MA is home to one of the most haunted locations in the state,  Omni Parker House. Come explore it with Haunted Journeys.


The original Parker House Hotel opened on the site on October 8, 1855, which makes it the longest operating hotel in the United States. A legendary symbol in downtown Boston, Omni Parker House has old-world charm and elegance with all of the modern conveniences of a world-class establishment. It is located in the heart of Boston and on the Freedom Trail and near Beacon Hill, Boston Common, Quincy Market, and Faneuil Hall Marketplace.


The very first owner, Harvey D. Parker, was known as the ultimate host, and continues the tradition even after his death; He occasionally drops in on his guests to make sure they are satisfied by their stay. Back in 1950, he was seen standing outside room 1078 by a woman who was a guest at the hotel. She said at first it was a misty apparition and then he fully appeared; he turned towards her. Harvey is not the only ghost here. 

Room 303 appears to be the most active. People report the smell of whiskey and the sound of laughter from the room after a businesswoman died there.  You might run into the ghost of a 19th-century whiskey salesman who lives in the closet of room 303 and plants booze-soaked kisses on slumbering female guests. Actress, Charlotte Cushman, died in the hotel in 1876 and Charlotte may turn on the faucets to get your attention. Stephen King's short story 1408, was based on the paranormal experiences in room 303.Unfortunately, there's not a chance your request will be honored. The room has been turned into a storage room.

There are shadowy men with stovepipe hats pacing the hallways and unnerving sounds of creaking rocking chairs in the middle of the night.
