Stayed here on first leg of our trip. Good size room overlooking courtyard. Usual facilities including in room safe, dressing gowns, iron and ironing board. Small but adequate bathroom - shower only, no bath. No coffee/tea facilities in room however available each morning near reception. Hotel is across the Charles river in Cambridge so you need to travel to see... More

We enjoyed a weekend at the Marlowe, in a room on the 6th floor overlooking the Charles and the city of Boston. A fairly large property in a prime location, with a good restaurant/bar. The staff are helpful. Very comfortable hotel overall although we both got back-pains from the bed!

I recently stayed here for a quick business trip and needed to be walking distance from where I needed to be, and this property was in the perfect location. The room was quiet and faced the inner courtyard, so no view or anything, but when I'm traveling quiet is often more important. The bathroom was nicely stocked, the bed and... More

We recently took advantage of a trip to Boston to take a long weekend and visit Cambridge. I was looking for a restful, no stress and somewhat spoiled respite from our hectic pace. Hotel Marlowe was a great fit. Right across the Charles River, we pulled into the courtyard and were greeted by a smiling valet. He quickly explained the... More

Staff are warm, helpful and knowledgeable. Room very good - location is very good close to train, water and downtown Boston. Rooms are quiet. Only note is that breakfast is expensive and tea at $4.00 is too pricey in the restaurant. Loved the choice of posters and the sculpture in courtyard.

They do everything they can to make you feel at home, and they've thought about lots of little things -- some I hadn't even thought of before. Just terrific. I especially appreciated the dog bowls and pad.

We enjoyed the Kimpton in Cambridge. We spent only one night. The room was good size and very clean. The hotel staff were friendly at check in. There is an additional charge of $25 for parking. The area around the hotel was very nice with a walking/ running path along the river.

The outdoor area was rather uninviting with basically couches sitting on a driveway and lots of dogs. It is a doggie hotel, so if you like dogs, you'll like it. The wine hour was a nice touch but no inviting place to sit to drink the wine. The restaurant was expensive for breakfast...no breakfast could be included. Good location though... More

We booked two rooms for college tours - promising to be a beautiful hotel in a lovely location - was nothing but.

Thanks for sharing your experience. So sorry about the AC, will get that looked into ASAP. As for the cable channel, unfortunately that was something beyond our control and was a dispute with a local channel and the larger service provider.
