Boston Luxury Hotels Offer Fenway Park Tickets & Packages

No visit to Boston Massachusetts is complete without Fenway Park. Two great places to stay when going to see the Red Sox are Fairmont Copley Plaza and Omni Parker.

Boston is a great city full of history to explore, including Fenway Park, a genuine piece of baseball history. Two Boston hotels offer tickets and packages tied into Red Sox games.

Fairmont Copley Plaza

This famous Fairmont, so named because it is located across the street from Copley Plaza, has the level of service and luxury one expects to find with this brand. It also is full of history and happens to have been built in 1912, the same year as Boston’s famed Fenway Park, one of the most iconic sports stadiums in American sports lore. The décor of the hotel, just like the ballpark, has a way of taking one into the past.

During the baseball season, the Fairmont offers a “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” signature package, which includes peanuts, Cracker Jacks, a drink, and an official Boston cap. For those who are experiencing the “Fairmont Gold” service that allows them to have a concierge assigned to them, a mention that one is attending the game results in finding a note in their room giving them information about how to get there, game start time, expected weather and the starting pitchers.

Getting from the Fairmont to Fenway can be done by taking a quick ride on the “Charlie” (subway) green line or taking a 20-25 minute walk.

Omni Parker House

The Omni Parker House is notable for a variety of reasons. Founded in 1855, it is the oldest continuously operating hotel in the United States. Located just off the Boston Common, some of America’s greatest writers, politicians, athletes, and celebrities have used it as a place to stay, hold press conferences, and dine on Parker House Rolls and Boston Cream Pie.

The hotel has played an important part in Boston Red Sox history. Before he became world-famous as the “Babe,” a young pitcher named George Herman Ruth liked to spend time there while leading the Red Sox to a World Series title in 1918. Unfortunately, he got traded away and Sox greats such as Ted Williams and Carl Yastrzemski viewed it as a great place to eat and meet during the 86-year drought when the “Curse of the Bambino” was in effect. However, another Omni Parker House regular, David Ortiz, helped to break the curse in 2004.

While there are plenty of great historical connections between the Red Sox and the Omni Parker House, the best connection is in the present, as guests can reserve special packages during the season that combine not only a historic place to play but also tickets to the game. That’s important in Boston, which has sold out Fenway Park over 500 straight times.

Boston is a great place to visit for history and baseball. Both can be combined into a fun vacation when staying at the Fairmont Copley Plaza or Omni Parker House.
