You enter a friendly little paradise once you arrive at Marlowes. Doors get opened, free drinks offered and all that in a charming manner. The rooms are large, bed and flatscreen as well and the meeting facilities as good as one would hope for. Nice restaurant at bottom level swrving excellent breakfast.

If you are tired of overpriced Boston hotels and want something light and airy, stylish and with only $20 for self parking over night, Marlowe Hotel in Cambridge is for you. The room is big and spacious. We had a King size deluxe with views of the Charles canal on the Galeria Side.The only thing that I did not necessarily... More

Thanks for the kind words! Just to note, self parking pricing increased to $25 as of February 1st. It's our first price increase since we opened in 2003 and well below the cost downtown. Thanks again! Joe Capalbo General Manager joe.capalbo@kimptonhotels.com More

Booked 2 nights ahead, and our last-minute Kimpton Karma rate was $104/night! $104 for a nice sized room with king size bed and Frette sheets. For another $9, we upgraded to a room with a beautiful view of the Charles. I would happily have paid way more. (We've paid $500 at the nearby Charles for a mediocre, disappointing experience.) Karma... More

We travel frequently and are fortunate enough to have stayed in many of the best hotels around the world and this hotel rivals them with their amazingly nice staff.

My husband and I have stayed at Hotel Marlowe at least a dozen times over the last few years. We have family in Boston, with limited housing, so this is our lovely little "escape" for some down time. From the minute you arrive, and the doorman holds open the door, and bellman is there to help with bags, as needed,... More

We've stayed in other Kimpton Hotels, and have always been so impressed with their high quality accomodations and service. This was our first trip away with our new puppy, and she loved it too. The Hotel Marlowe may be our new favorite Kimpton. Every detail was perfect - from the personal touches, welcome note and treats, to the puppy accomodations,... More

We visited in January and really were quite impressed. Our rate was super competitive at $130. Rooms are very well appointed with mini bar and comfy beds. Bath was on the small side but upscale in design. I'm sure you can upgrade to a higher level. This hotel is in Cambridge just over the river from downtown Boston and adjacent... More

From the moment we drove into the hotel courtyard it was clear that this hotel is committed to extraordinary customer service. Every single member of the staff was friendly and looking for ways to be helpful, including offering to deliver a Keurig coffee maker to our room so we would be assured of great coffee before our early departure.

This wasn't our first visit to the Marlowe, but it was exceptional. Our room was upgraded to a "room with a view", which was really nice, and the view changed depending on the time of day and the amount of sunlight. The sun on the water and Mass General Hospital was really impressive. The hotel staff was helpful and knowledgeable.... More

We have stayed at this hotel many times and it continues to be wonderful! There have been many staff changes but the new staff is as exceptional as the past. Everyone wants to please and is very friendly. They go the extra mile to ensure that everything is enjoyable and they make an effort to get to know their guests.
