This is a wonderful, swanky boutique hotel that is both family and pet friendly. We did see several dogs and got to share an elevator with a very excited Collie. The staff are incredibly friendly and greeted our kids upon check in with some play-doh. We had a goldfish in the room as well. We also received complimentary bottles of... More

Enjoyed my stay here. Very good location, perfect for a long walk or bike ride along the Charles River, or kayaking in the river. Ask for a room on the park side of the building. Just a short cab ride into Boston. The staff was cheerful, helpful and professional, making for a great working relationship! Kudos! The hotel has a... More

I can't say enough good things about Hotel Marlowe! Every time we encountered a hotel team member they welcomed us, met our needs and made us feel right at home. They are super conveniently located within walking distance to the Boston Science Museum, Duck and Hop on Hop Off tours, Kenmore Square and a straight shot to Logan Airport. They... More

The room was spacious and clean. Very friendly staff. As it is a pet friendly hotel we saw a few dogs on the lobby, unusual but quite comforting. We loved it. Location was good. We could walk to the Faneuil Hall Marketplace.

Every time I come to Boston this is where I stay! Not only is the location fantastic with a shopping plaza and The Museum of Science just a two minute walk away, the service and decor is amazing. The hotel staff are always helpful and the rooms are luxurious, especially the fuzzy blankets at the end of the bed, which... More

This was even with a wedding going on (that didn't include us): We used room service several times and they were fairly prompt and had a great deal available. My travelling companion wasn't well and needed multiple things to help - they were very accommodating even with things that weren't listed on their complementary products. We brought our cat, and...

We just finished an amazing stay at Hotel Marlowe. Our front desk staff Chris was welcoming- told us about the wine hour, amenities, and offered to help us to make a reservation. Gave us a jogging map. Clearly loved working there, and was helpful in our entire stay including getting access to the kayak. The car/bike staff Johnny was also... More

We have traveled to the finest hotels in the world, and we are VERY picky and we could not have been more impressed with the Marlowe! Exceptionally friendly and accommodating staff, extremely well appointed and clean rooms. Awesome fitness center. Also a sign in the bathroom listing 2 dozen complimentary items, and if they don't have something you need, they... More

First off the staff at the hotel was great - fun, informative and efficient. Loved the touch that they wore bathrobes at night for a 'night cap' and offered sangria from 5-6 complementary. Within minutes of arriving in our room l, we were greeted by more staff offering free snacks and bottled water. And a cute note from the GM.... More
