Beautiful rooms, extremely comfortable beds, helpful and friendly staff. We didn't get a chance to try the bar or restaurant but the little breakfast snack/spread in the morning was a treat (and of course wine hour isn't to be missed ;) ). We try to stay in a Kimpton whenever possible because it's always a good experience, nicely appointed, and... More

We spent only one night at the Marlowe before staying at the Taj downtown, but are glad we split our stay and had some time here. Cambridge was fun, and we found the best way to get around and enjoy the area was on the complimentary bikes provided by the Marlowe (they have kayaks available too!), The rooms were great,... More

What a wonderful place! We had all intentions of being able to see the city after getting off of our cruise, but my husband had pulled his back and wasn't able to. So we arrived way early to drop off our bags and thought we would just have to sit in the lobby until check in time. When checking our... More

It was an awesome hotel! The location is perfect because it's across the river from Boston. The train station is 1 block away which makes getting around easy. On a scale of 1-5 I'd give the hotel, staff, amenities and location a 10! I'd stay there again and again

After back to back Dr. Appts, me and my son needed some fun time. Staying at the Hotel Marlowe gave us that. Steps away from an amazing mall and the Charles River is just what the Dr. ordered. The staff was amazing, rooms were beyond our expectations, and the location perfect. Can't think of a better place to recover when... More

A visit with our son brought us to Boston. Loving exercise, we were thrilled to use their free kayaks on the Charles River just behind the hotel, and also to use their free bikes to tour around the city. Always love Kimpton Hotels: very friendly, clean, free wine hour...

Hotel Marlowe met all my expectations! All the previous reviews that led me to choose Hotel Marlowe were 100% true. We got upgraded to a view room right out of the gate. They were thoughtful enough to print a photo of our dogs to make us feel more at home, and I was surprised with an awesome birthday treat, champagne,... More

Stayed here with my 2 kids for my college 20 year reunion. Booked a suite to allow enough room for downtime, etc. Suite was large, roomy, and spacious. We even had 4 of my sorority sisters hanging out in the afternoon with plenty of room (we were able to shut the doors to the bedroom for the kids to nap!!!)... More

Luxury hotel that is very pet friendly. They will provide you with pet beds, bowls, and treats at no extra cost. There is a park next door for dog walking. Parking is available in the garage which is attached to the hotel and galleria. You can access the garage and the galleria for shopping without going outdoors so it's perfect... More

Stayed at Hotel Marlowe whilst my other half was working in Boston. The staff are amazing and go above board to help, especially Meredith on the front desk. Couldn't recommend highly enough and the mall next door is fab. The restaurant on site has a great menu and are extremely accommodating, I wanted something from the dinner menu which they... More
