All is not fair in Boston hotels
Both the Hilton Boston Downtown and the Omni Parker House are high-quality hotels popular with tourists and business travelers who want to be in the center of the city. But only one is helping to build and retain a middle class in Boston by providing union wages and benefits. That’s important both to the city and to taxpayers in general, who often end up subsidizing underpaid workers. It’s something people should remember the next time they book a room.
