Whenever I travel to Boston I always stay here. The only problem is they get sold out so you have to book early. When I checked in from from the freezing cold I was offered a hot toddy on the house. They then upgraded my room and gave me s $10 gift from the mini bar. The room is lovely... More

I have been a repeat guest of the Hotel Marlowe for over 10 years. As a boutique hotel, it is more intimate, has character with very personable and attentive staff. The newly redecorated rooms have the look and feel of a lavish guest room often found in a European small hotel. The complimentary wine hour (5-6 PM) is welcoming and... More

I had read the reviews ahead of time on Trip Advisor and noticed that it was the #1 hotel in Cambridge, so I went in with high expectations. I am happy to say that I was not at all disappointed. This was probably the best hotel stay I have had in my life. We were treated like royalty the entire... More

We stayed at this hotel this past weekend and found it very enjoyable. The rooms are nice and clean and the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. This hotel is connected to the mall and restaurants which makes it convenient. We were spared having to go out in a snowstorm and just walked through the mall to The Cheesecake Factory... More

Very nice size and well decorated rooms. Check in was easy and front desk employees were very nice, efficient and informative. Hotel has some great perks i.e., next to mall and parking garage. Bambera restaurant attached off of lobby. Nice parking rate for hotel stay. Would be excellent if not for the fact that the marble bathroom floors in both... More

This hotel is very nice and is in a great spot in cambridge. Close to everything. The staff is available, and very nice. The hotel is not Marriott boring. Nothing to complain about, which is why I give a 4. But it is in a new building that is starting to border on Marriott boring. I enjoy the Kimptons in... More

I recently needed to plan a trip in Boston and due to MLK weekend - had expanded my search to Cambridge due to limited availability. As a result I happened upon Hotel Marlowe quite by mistake. I had been familiar with its slightly off the Charles and next to the Cambridgeside Mall. I suppose the proximity to a shopping mall... More

I have to admit that I am very picky when it comes to hotels. I cannot believe how clean, attentive, and high-end this pet and kid friendly hotel is! I do not feel that I should have to compromise quality just because I travel with children and our Lab, and Hotel Marlowe did not disappoint. The valet warmly greeted the... More
