Boston’s history with sports dates back to the very first World Series, when the Boston Red Sox won in their hometown in 1903. The city’s sports culture has since grown, and the 551-room Omni Parker House, established in 1855, has been a part of it every step of the way, even hosting baseball greats such as Babe Ruth and Ted Williams. To celebrate that key part of Boston history and culture, the hotel is offering a Score Big in Boston deal for meeting planners. If you book a meeting for a minimum of $10,000, you can score tickets to a Boston sports event—a perfect way to impress a sports-crazed exec.
If you spend between $10,000 and $49,999, you will get:
- 2 regular-season tickets to a Boston Red Sox game at Fenway Park
- 1 complimentary night accommodation with breakfast for two
- A complimentary sports amenity
If you spend $50,000 or more, you will get:
- A choice of four regular-season tickets to see one of the following teams: the Boston Red Sox, New England Patriots, Boston Celtics or Boston Bruins
- 2 complimentary deluxe room accommodations with breakfast for four
- 2 complimentary travel bags
Meeting planners who are not as interested in sports can opt to score with the following savings:
- If your room and F&B spend is $10,000 to $24,999, you could receive a credit of $550 to your master account.
- If your room and F&B spend is $25,000 to $49,999, you could receive a credit of $750 to your master account.
- If your room and F&B spend is $50,000 or more, you could receive a credit of $1,500 to your master account.
The offer is available through Dec. 31, and is available for meetings that must occur by April 30, 2015. In between meetings at the landmark hotel, attendees can check out the hotel’s other distinctly Bostonian features. For instance, Parker’s Restaurant serves up the original Boston Cream Pie in a space that Charles Dickens and Ralph Waldo Emerson once hosted their Saturday Club. The Last Hurrah whiskey bar also doubles as a mini museum for the hotel, featuring photos of 20th century Boston on the walls.
