The Marlowe exceeds our expectations every time we stay. We have tried a few other hotels in the Boston area but none came close to the Marlowe. The hospitality there is unbelievable, and their rooms are luxurious. You would never know that dogs are permitted in the Marlowe, as it is always spotless. There is a large mall next to... More

We recently began staying in the Kimpton line of hotels and this one is our favorite so far. The front desk staff and housekeeping were all very polite and friendly. My kids loving having access to the fruited water all day and they enjoyed the candy at turndown. The hotel was well located for us, with walking access to the... More

My husband and I stayed for New Year's and had a wonderful stay. We brought our dog and she enjoyed it just as much ;) Great hotel with a wonderful staff. Rachel is a total superstar! She showered us with wonderful amenities, even cookies for our dog. Thanks for a great stay!

We have been for 4 days at the hotel to visit universities in Boston and couldn't have made a better choice to stay at the Marlowe. The metro station was just in walking distance and I loved the direct access to the mall next door! The staff was super friendly and helpful. The hotel is new and modern in design,... More

I am traveling for the past 8 years couple times a year to this hotel and I wouldn't change it for any other one. The employees (at the door, reception, restaurant, housekeeping) are all very nice, helpful and service oriented. If you ask something you don't have to repeat and wait at all. In fact they do it with an... More

From arrival to departure this hotel was fantastic, from check in we were treated very well and the staff were all friendly and helpful, the hotel is also joined to The Galleria shopping mall, which has...

I cannot say enough good things about this hotel and its staff. Leading up to our visit, Hotel Manager Ryan Parker checked in with me via e-mail to see if there was anything we needed to make our anniversary trip more special. Brendan the doorman was so personable and quick to take care of us. Taylor at the front desk... More

Contrary to the reviews, this hotel is not 'minutes from Harvard.' Getting to Harvard took 30 plus minutes (to go 3 miles with construction and traffic) so I wouldn't recommend this hotel if you're visiting Harvard. It's located next to a mall and there's no where you can walk nearby so not great if you want to explore Cambridge. The... More

Thanks for your feedback, although it does sting a bit to read your comments. We are only a few miles from Harvard, but road work can play a part unfortunately and it sometimes takes a bit longer. I drove there today and it was about 10 minutes (30 minutes is true for rush hour)... Also, to clarify, we do not... More
