Book a ‘room with a boo’ at Omni Hotels this Halloween

Red EyeThis Halloween, guests at Omni Hotels will be sipping on spooky signature cocktails, such as the Red Widow, Trick ‘R’ Treat, Bond’s Eye and Red Eye, while potentially sleeping in an ominously spirited suite from the luxury hotel brand’s “ghost-folio” of properties. Read on if you dare… The historic, and some say haunted, Omni Parker House in Boston prides itself on customer service. However, some guests may get more than they bargained for when the ghost of Harvey Parker, the hotel’s founder, materializes in certain guest rooms to inquire about their stay. In addition, elevators at the Omni Parker House have been known to travel to the third floor — where novelist Charles Dickens once lived — without a single button being pushed. Spooky! Guests can sleep at their own risk in the Omni Shoreham Hotel‘s “Ghost Suite” in Washington, D.C. Those who have dared to do so have reported televisions and lights turning on by themselves in the middle of the night, while guests in adjacent rooms have heard loud noises coming from the suite — all while it was unoccupied. Book a night at the Omni Mount Washington Resort in Bretton Woods, NH, and you might awake to find the widow of the hotel’s first owner, a socialite named Princess Carolyn, at the foot of the bed, lost in thought as she brushes her hair. Princess Carolyn’s spirit is believed to watch over the hotel which was built for her, knocking politely on doors, and visiting the ornate maple four-poster bed in room 314, which traveled around the world with her. To celebrate Halloween, Omni partnered with a master mixologist to create four new signature Halloween cocktails for guests to enjoy across the brand, including:
  • Red Widow – a mysterious mixture of Skyy Infusions Citrus, fresh lemon juice, simple syrup and pomegranate juice, garnished with Twizzler ropes, a lemon wheel and candy corn
  • Trick ‘R’ Treat – a creepy cocktail made with white rum, lime juice, simple syrup and Midori, topped with a lime dimple and featuring assorted Halloween candy
  • Bond’s Eye – made for the martini lover, this drink fuses Plymouth Gin, Ketel One Vodka and Lillet finished with a Lychee “Eyeball” stuffed with a blueberry
  • Red Eye – a mixture of Absolut Vanilla Vodka, Grand Marnier, orange juice and strawberry puree; also garnished with a Lychee “Eyeball” with blueberry and strawberry puree
