Hotel Marlowe is just a wonderful hotel. We have stayed at other Kimpton Hotels and enjoyed our stay but the Marlowe is our favorite. The staff is consistently friendly and willing to go the extra mile. The room is always clean and well furnished and the common areas are very comfortable. We have stayed at the Marlowe many times and... More

The hotel entrance is nicely tucked away off the main street. I wish I had more time to spend here beyond my single night as the staff were great and housekeeping came by for turndown service (unexpected). The rooms and hotel look brand new with high quality materials and good lighting. The wine hour was extra nice as they had... More

Our previous experience with the Kimpton chain was at the Seattle Monaco. It was a good experience, so we thought we'd try the Marlowe. We were not disappointed. The room decor reflected the chain's boutique designation. Everything from the bathroom wallpaper to the unusal lamps screamed "we are beyond the ordinary." The lighting in the room was excellent--to include the... More

We spent a very cold and rainy weekend in Boston. It was wonderful to return to warm cider and cozy atmosphere. Everyone from the valet at the door to the maids on the floor were friendly and helpful. The hot chocolate for the kids was a wonderful surprise when I went for the coffee. We plan on making this a... More

This is a great find near MIT in North Cambridge. Close to everything with very pleasant rooms and public spaces and extraordinarily friendly service. Great food and drink too. It is like coming home every time you return. Highly recommended.

I think I just found my favorite hotel in Cambridge. Very nice and clean, and the hotel staff are super friend and accomendating. The beds are soft and comfy, and the hotel has everything I needed. I've stayed at a lot of hotels in the city, but nothing matches up to this.

The best hotel ever! My 2 grandgirls and I stayed one night this weekend visiting Boston. I've been her numerous times before, but this time with the kids, it was terrific. They sent up snacks for the kids as a surprise, and were helpful, kind and as the girls said, made them feel like they were Eloise at the Plaza!... More

It is now a tradition to get together with the cousins for a weekend to celebrate Christmas together, and part of that includes staying at the Marlowe! Being a member of the Kimpton family I never have to worry about bringing my dog. They even babysit at the Front Desk, or you can arrange to have them takes your fur... More

Very comfortable and upscale hotel - the rooms are cozy, with excellent furnishings with an eye to comfort. I was here for a meeting held within the hotel itself and the small size of the establishment made the whole stay very enjoyable.
