This hotel was just okay. We love Kimpton properties so are always excited when there is one during a trip to visit. Unfortunately this property is just so average. There is nothing exciting as we're used to with other Kimpton locations. There is no fun decor, no pool, the shower was old and very small, the room was very blah... More

We would highly recommend Hotel Marlowe for a stay in Cambridge Boston area. The staff was extremely gratuitous and accommodating. The room was luxurious with a superlative view of Boston at night. A truly magical stay. A shame that there are no more than five stars for this rating!

I have zero complaints about this hotel. It's in Cambridge and not Boston, which we knew and which was completely worth it. Decor was absolutely gorgeous, room was bigger than expected, and the bed was so insanely comfortable. The staff was outstanding, and we were really thrilled with how welcoming the atmosphere was. Great, great experience.

I chose this hotel based upon Tripadvisor's rating and its proximity to Harvard University, where I was attending a class. Definitely the right decision! The hotel was beautiful, spotless, and upbeat. The staff was awesome. Very friendly, professional, and competent. They were constantly asking about my comfort and if there was anything else I needed. Concierge gave great tips on... More

Marlowe is a stunning boutique hotel, although it's boutique in size, it is boutique insofar that it's a specific kind of stay. In the past we chose not to stay here because it does not have a pool, our last stay was a quick pass through Boston, and we got an amazing rate so we chose the place to crash... More

I spend a single night on my way to a different destination. I booked based on reviews and I have to say that I'm disappointed. Not necessarily with the hotel itself but the location is not so great. The Marlowe is a nice property, well kept and staff is very friendly and attentive. My room was spacious and comfortable, I... More

The good news is that everything within our control you liked, that makes me happy. The bad news is that you don't like malls, Uber or our location right on the water overlooking Boston. I guess that's a win right? Thanks, Joe Capalbo, General Manager, joe.capalbo@hotelmarlowe.com More

The Hotel Marlowe was a great base for two days in Cambridge with easy parking right under the hotel and an easy drive to Harvard Square for dinner and entertainment. The hotel staff greeted us with wine, a regular evening ritual and a big beautiful room. We requested a quiet room and were rewarded with an interior room overlooking their... More

We stayed here for one night. The hotel is very unique in style. Room was satisfactory but not the best I've seen. Bed was horribly uncomfortable and woke up sore. While in the shower on the am I noticed I was accompanied by some other guests stray hairs, a few of them. Ugh. We had a late breakfast in the... More

The staff is attentive, friendly and experienced. The hotel is beautiful and clean, and dog-friendly. There is a complimentary wine reception in the hotel lobby every evening, and the hotel is connected (through the parking garage) to the Galleria Mall.

We love staying at Kimpton hotels, but this was by far the nicest of them all. We were traveling with our 3 children for 5 nights and had reserved a king studio suite. Upon check in we were upgraded by Rachel R. to an executive suite, which made our stay that much more special! It was an absolutely huge room... More
