After a long trip, my husband and I went to restaurant/bar to eat and redeem our free drink. Bar was all that was available, because it was later bartender was nice and friendly. I saw a mouse under the bar stools. Seeing rodents in any context usually sends me reeling, but I held it together until I got back to... More

I've been going to the Hotel Marlowe for several years to attend a conference. Service is always excellent. The rooms are luxurious, the catering staff is always attentive and professional, the meals are great. If you go there, take advantage of the complimentary bikes or kayaks to tour the area. They even have a water bowl of dog treats outside... More

I stayed at the Marlowe for 2 nights with my family (2 young kids). Overall I really enjoyed my stay. The room was really nice, clean, staff helpful, and location ideal for us (in between Boston and Cambridge, very close to the Museum of Science). I hesitated to put the rating at *very good* because of the breakfast which was... More

Wonderful stay at Hotel Marlowe! Extremely friendly and accommodating staff. My room was modern, clean, and quiet. They were remodeling the restaurant while I was there, and I got a sneak peak of the new space. It is beautiful! I hear that the restaurant is popular with the locals. While they are remodeling the restaurant, they did offer a limited... More

Even in the middle of renovation, the hotel exceeded expectations. The location allowed for all one could ask in Cambridge, and location does make the place worth the cost. It is dog friendly and made me sad I didn't bring her. Running or cycling on the Charles, the museum next door, service at its best - what else can one... More

Stayed for business, great location. Well decorated and unique. Used conference rooms for business. Lunch buffet was well done, staff friendly and attentive. One random thing that effected my stay was there was no business center/computer of any sort. The staff offered to print something out, but I was expecting somewhere to spend 20 minutes working and printing some documents... More

Thanks for the nice review! With regard to the business center comment, we are in the process of relocating it so unfortunately it's unavailable for now. The front desk can do the printing and copying and I will look into why it took so long for you, shouldn't be that way. Thanks for sharing!

as you turn into the Hotel Marlowe you are welcomed by a dazzling roundabout with plenty of comfortable chairs and outdoor seating. You are then greeted by a friendly door man and possibly the free wine hour depending on when you get in....yes, I said free wine!! I stayed in a suite this time (as we had to come back... More

Stayed here for two nights for a weekend getaway with my wife and couldn't be more pleased.
