The hotel itself is beautiful and in a great location. What makes it such a stand out is the amazing staff. They are all and i mean all wonderful people and go above and beyond to accomadate all of one's wishes and needs. I even had tea sent from the front staff because I sounds like I had a cold....

I gave the Marlowe every chance to be average...requested an early check in ( like 6 am early), special requests not on the menu from the restaurant, asking for additional items for my room, move rooms, blah blah...and not only did they deliver they did so flawlessly. Every single time. I will admit due to a hectic work schedule I... More

I found this to be one of the nicest hotels I have stayed in. And I have stayed in plenty - all over the world. The staff was friendly, helpful and attentive. I love that they allow dogs. Attention to details throughout the hotel were obvious. From the yoga mat to the free wine hour....I will definately be back!

I would like to start off by saying I have never been to a hotel that is pet friendly, and is amazingly well decorated and clean. After being on an airplane for over 12 hours, getting stranded in Boston, (where I have never visited before) and carrying a 2 month old puppy for 8+ hours, your hotel was literally a... More

I feel compelled to write this review because I have seen so many positive reviews that somehow I feel we were punished because we booked through priceline. So I guess this is a buyer beware. We decided to try the Marlowe because we were looking for a fun hotel to bring my nephews on future visits to enjoy the Museum... More

Thanks for sharing your feedback, I am so sorry that you felt this way. Regardless of how you booked, you should have received the same level of service throughout your stay and I am sorry we let you down. It's definitely not the norm for us. Thanks again for sharing.

It was such a pleasure to enjoy the warmth of hospitality despite the colossal amounts of snow outside Boston. The comfy bed (for us and our dog), friendly staff and ideal location keeps this hotel one of the area's gems.

Hit Boston/Cambridge as they were digging out of snow; we had tickets for a Garden event the next day which was still on. Met by an enthuastic valet (not sure many guests were showing up with the weather), mirthful front desk folks leading lobby games for the snow bound during wine time and a handwritten note in the room, nestled...

Hotel Marlowe is a wonderful boutique hotel located in Cambridge. The room we stayed in overlooked Boston and was particularly breathtaking at night. The finished and details in the room were very nice and eclectic. I highly recommend staying at the Marlowe, especially since it's only a short train ride to Boston.

I stayed here for Valentines Day this year... The service is wonderfully, they're very hospitable and prompt. The rooms are a nice size & very quiet. The bed is one of the best I've ever slept on at a hotel. The location is awesome, around the corner from the mall and Cheesecake Factory. The cocktail hour is also a nice... More
