I will forever stay at this hotel when in Boston. Traveled with my sister and my 2 daughters and it was perfect for us. 2 minute walk from the science museum, connected to a mall. The staff was very friendly. My daughters wake up really early so we walked around the hotel so my sister could sleep in, the receptionist... More

Recently stayed overnight on a flying visit to Boston for a wedding and as usual forgot to bring toothpaste, shaving foam, and my girlfriend needed a razor. In the bathroom there is long and impressive list of the items people always forget that the hotel will supply as necessary and for free. A nice touch. The rooms were spacious, the... More

Kimpton properties tend to be friendly and have beautiful rooms, but this was one of the best we have ever experienced. Rachel Rodriguez made it especially wonderful--treating us like royalty. Make sure you get a view of the Charles.

We are so glad to have chosen the Marlowe for our stay in the Boston area while visiting colleges with our daughter. Its location is right across the street from the Charles River and its pedestrian walkway, within easy walking distance of the MIT campus, and surprisingly quiet for being in the midst of things. Our Executive Suite was spacious... More

We were staying in a hotel for the night due to continuing renovations on our apartment and we had a great stay at the Marlowe. We were late for the wine reception so the manager comped us two glasses of wine at the hotel bar. The hotel bar was hopping for a Saturday night and the bartender (Chris) made sure... More

When I first made my reservation at Hotel Marlowe it was only becuase they were pet friendly and we have 2 young Bernese Mountain dogs. I had low expectations assuming since the hotel welcomed pets, it would probably be not so clean or good smelling! I was prepared for the worst. The second we stepped into this luxury hotel we...

I arrived on my own, very late, with dogs in tow..and the staff could not have been more friendly, understanding and helpful! Getting everything out of the car and up to the room on my own would have been such a pain...the valet, concierge, and front desk folks all lent a hand-and with a smile no less...great visit.

Stayed at this hotel for a bat mitzvah weekend. The room was very nice, the workout room was good. There was, in fact, a yoga mat in the room for guests to use. Wifi was free if you signed up to join the Member Loyalty program - and joining also gave you $10 bar credit. Free coffee in the morning,... More
