Nice modern clean hotel. Had a room with two queen beds and it was a little small. I wish there had been a comfy chair to sit and read in. There was only one person at the reception desk so service was slow. No concierge, door person or any other staff in sight no matter the time of day so there was no one other than the desk person to ask for suggestions or directions etc. They did not serve any breakfast and the morning coffee was nothing to shout about to put is mildly. When we did ask about breakfast the best they could offer was dunkin donuts. Luckily we found an amazing place called Tatte a few blocks away. I imagine it would be more inviting under different circumstances.

Overall great, super friendly staff. There was a minor issue with the room I stayed at but Sean the overnight manager went above and beyond to solve the problem. His management skills are excellent!! There’s a shopping mall and a beautiful park near by. Quiet and safe neighborhood. The hotel is about 30min walk from the downtown area and tourist sightseeing.

The hotel is very convenient to the mall that is behind it..and you have to pay for parking in garage next to it. But there is elevator that goes up from garage right I to the hotel which is nice. Room was very modern and stylish we had 2 queen beds and view of canal in room 719. Small fridge and safe..but I thought microwaves were there but had none..no coffee maker in room either..though they had free coffee in restaurant area of hotel..no complimentary breakfast..was so disappointed ..they did offer dry staple breakfast items for a cost...that's the only thing I can say was a serious negative..pleasant staff,easy area..

Very attractive but not well run. We reserved a room with two beds. We called a few days before to confirm. We arrived and were sent to a room. We were surprised that it was a suite, but it only had one bed. We called the front desk and were told they had no rooms with two beds available, gave us the suite for no extra charge and could make up the fold our couch as a bed if we wanted. A fold out couch is not what we wanted, but we accepted it. No offer of a refund. Sunday they had a small breakfast menu; Monday that had nothing, as in nothing. Not even coffee on site. Not even for sale. They repeatedly gave us incomplete directions as to how to use their garage. The suite had a space clearly designed for a computer work desk and chair; no desk; no chair. Even the clock in the room was off, still set to standard time although that ended months ago. Not what we expected.

Thanks for your feedback, I'm so sorry to hear that your stay did not live up to expectations. This is definitely not the norm for us and and during COVID have had to significantly reduce the offerings at the hotel including breakfast hours. We do have coffee available so I am sorry that wasn't communicated to you. I'm also sorry that the upgrade to a suite was not to your liking. Thanks for sharing and I will address your concerns ASAP.

This was our fourth stay at the Marlowe but hadn’t been in years. We had hoped to travel to see grandchildren but Covid limited our options so decided a trip to Boston area would work. We were pleasantly surprised with renovations. We had a deluxe king on 7 floor. Very comfortable and stylish. The bed was extremely comfortable and the towels were luxuriously soft. We felt the safety precautions in place were great and we felt safe while there. Sanitizer everywhere. Easy access to a nice walk along the Charles River. Vallet at the front desk was very helpful and cheerful. Enjoyed the free wine bar both nights. Easy garage parking as the valet service is suspended for now. Would definitely return and look forward to all the finishing touches
