We stayed here last weekend and enjoyed our stay. The hotel is nice and has great rooms. The complimentary happy hour is a nice extra, though the red wine is pretty horrible :) We stayed with our dog and love that we can bring him to Kimpton's, definitely a huge plus! Nicely located with access to the mall, but I... More

The hotel itself is beautiful, we also liked the free bikes and the complimentary wine tasting session (even though i didn't like the wine too much) However, the hotel is quite pricey and i expect a better room (especially the bathroom didn't meet my personal standards) for that kind of money. Probably wouldn't stay there again.

Not sure what took me so long to discover this hidden gem but it is my new favorite go-to place. The motor courtyard entrance sets the tone for an unexpected experience and service on all levels does not disappoint - from the welcoming check-in staff to the nightly turn-down service, AND the house restaurant, everything here is a notch above...

I really enjoy Kimpton hotels overall and the Marlowe did not fail to deliver. After a contentious cab ride from the airport it was wonderful to come into a Halloween decorated lobby with the afternoon reception in the background. My room was spacious with a great view of the Charles river and the $10 for the minibar feels like a... More

Stayed for just one night celebrating our anniversary. Upon check-in we were upgraded to a suite on the 8th floor which was very nice overlooking the Charles River. We were very happy with the accommodations. Also we had a bottle of champagne, chocolate covered strawberries, and sparkling water in our suite with a note from the front desk congratulating us...

Hotel Marlowe, gave us, comfort and outstanding service. During check-in or check-out, and of course other requests, the responded was immediately with smile and patience. The hotel itself looks very modern and clean. Large shopping mall next to the hotel with a selection of prestigious restaurants or fast food. The only problem we encountered, a distance of about 300 m... More

Comfortable, quality, attention to details, great staff. Stayed during the Head of the Charles Regatta, spent little time in the hotel..but the time spent was great. Loved the free wine pour at cocktail hour.

I stayed at the Hotel Marlowe for a week while in Cambridge for business. It was a fantastic hotel and a wonderful stay. The staff was friendly, rooms were comfortable, and the restaurant, Bambara, had pretty good food. I enjoyed the nightly turndown service, and the science-themed touches were fun. The hotel was about a 5 min walk away from... More

this was a lovely hotel with excellent service. Every person on the staff was helpful and more than accommodating. We will look for other Kimpton hotels when we travel based on this experience. The restaurant was reasonably priced for a hotel restaurant. And, the location was terrific.
