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

Recently stayed here for a weekend in Boston with friends. The service was fantastic, in fact, upon arrival, they switched our room to a water view, despite the hotel was quite full. The staff also sent a bottle of champagne and fresh fruit to our room for my birthday. We were provided with a parking pass as well to come... More

I appreciate the kind words and definitely agree with you about the barking dogs. We have a dedicated floor for your 4 legged friends, but sometimes one slips through the cracks and ends up elsewhere. Not often though, and we are do our best to ensure our guests are not disturbed. Thanks for sharing... Joe Capalbo, General Manager, joe.capalbo@hotelmarlowe.com More

If you are looking for a most enjoyable experience when visiting Cambridge, this is the best place to stay. Extra effort to make you feel at home - including a photo when you arrive (family, pet, etc)

The Hotel Marlowe continues to be a magical experience even after being a loyal guest at the hotel for over four years now. Each and every member of the Marlowe team or Marlowe family is warm, friendly, caring, and professional. The rooms and suites are delightfully appointed, clean, and bright with large windows and gracious bathrooms. Many deluxe rooms and... More

Our family of four spent four great nights at the Marlowe. We were in town to take in two Celtics games and to see other sights in Boston. The location is perfect for an event at the TD Garden as it is a short walk to the T and only two stops to North Station. We were surprised on the... More

The hotel is an excellent cross between a boutique and big box hotel. The staff is very friendly and responsive. My husband and I were travelling on business as well as for a family event. The experience was so good that The Marlowe became a contender for my son's rehearsal dinner and wedding partying overnight stay before the wedding. We... More

Our fourth visit to the Hotel Marlowe and once again, an exceptional experience. Friendly and helpful staff, comfortable rooms (and beds), quirky decor, wonderful wine hour and morning coffee service - all contribute to making this feel as an upscale home away from home. Location on the edge of Cambridge (which is worth exploring) and across the river from Boston... More

I have had 4 stays at the Marlowe. Each stay has had its wonderful and unexpected surprise. The staff treats me as a welcomed returning guest. Aidan O'Kennedy and crew gave much love.
