Great location, very attentive staff, I loved the free loaner bikes -- high quality. Not the standard business hotel -- clean, friendly, different. Kimpton frequent stay program lets you raid the minibar -- a $10 credit, another plus.

This was my family's second stay at the Marlowe. I again had business to conduct in Boston. Attentive staff, location and the quality of accommodation for the price was the reason for our return visit. Amanda greeted us at the front desk at check in on July 20, 2014. She was happy to see us, politely professional and eagerly accommodated... More

Very funky and convenient, yet not "cookie cutter" wedding venue. Food was delicious and the hotel staff pleasant and accommodating. Excellent set up for ballroom and smaller lobby and function rooms on private floor with ample bathrooms. Block reservation rate was fair. If using outside park facing canal, which is lovely for a ceremony, ask that grass is mowed.

Chose this hotel as it looked family friendly even offering free bicycle rentals. Travelled with 2 kids. I was told that the hotel had only 1 bicycle in the entire hotel. This hotel seems better geared for the business traveller. On a positive note, valet was friendly and helpful (even more so than the conceirge). I would consider staying here... More

I stayed for one night in a King Deluxe View Room. Key problem: the hotel restaurant is currently undergoing some extremely noisy renovations. Non-stop banging till 5 pm. Not sure when this will finish, but I won't be back until it's over. They really should warn guests in advance about this. Of course, if they had done so, I would... More

Thank you for the feedback and I am sorry that our restaurant renovation disturbed you during your stay. We are excited to unveil our new restaurant in August, but there's always something unexpected when you are doing any sort work and we did not anticipate the noise we had last week. WIth that said, the loudest is behind us and... More

If I could give this hotel 4.5 stars I would. Everything was great. The service at Kimpton properties is really top notch and this was no exception.

The hotel is simply excellent - not a single fault. Spacious rooms, one of the best beds we slept in in a long while, parking in the adjoining Mall inexpensive - location is great - close to Green line, but also within walking distance to Beacon Hill and old Boston - avoid the more expensive and lower quality/price ratio downtown...

This was our first time at this particular Kimpton property. Just one night as we were in town for a funeral. Short cab ride from Logan to hotel. Lovely arrival area, attractive lobby and hallways. Very nice decor. Room was very clean and up to date. Great view of Charles River from room.
