Hotel's Favorite
We arrived in Boston on a Sunday around 12:30pm after a 3 hour drive...My wife called the hotel and asked if we could get an early check-in...Woody told her yes, and upon arrival he couldn't have been any nicer...My wife asked if there was any way we could get a room with a view as it's been a while since we were able to escape from the kids for a few days and Woody put us on the top floor with a view of the canal !!! Since the nearest subway stop was approx 10 mins away we walked to and from Faneuil Hall / Boston Common each day (about 25 mins each way) along side the Charles River...Wonderfully scenic and peaceful walk. It was also nice having the Cambridgeside mall connected to the hotel. The self parking fee of $30 kinds of sucks, but when you go to a major city that's actually not too high compared to others, and since I'm not a fan of waiting / tipping for my vehicle every time I want to leave the hotel it was a great option to have...The parking was a bit confusing when we first arrived, but after the first day it was easy to figure out after familiarizing ourselves with the layout. My wife pointed out, and I have to agree, that this was the cleanest hotel room we could recall staying in. If we went back to the area we'd certainly stay here again.

From our first interaction with the valet, the experience was less than ideal. The valet was very curt and told us we couldn’t unload our luggage in front, we needed to pull over on the side. The check-in was painfully slow and interrupted by the gentleman helping another guest in the middle of my check-in. The room was fine. Unfortunately there was an adjoining door with the next room. Next door was a little dog who barked-and then the owner would yell at it to stop. Even at 10:00 pm. I’ve stayed at Kimpton before and this is not what I’ve come to expect.

I'm so sorry for the experience you encountered with us, staffing levels remain a challenge as we try to ramp out staffing back up. There is no excuse for a curt welcome, I'll personally address that. Thanks for sharing. Joe Capalbo, General Manager

Amazing property with fantastic staff. From valet, to check-in the staff is very good. The property is beautiful and in a great location. The restaurant on site is fantastic. Really enjoy that Kimpton property. All employees seem to really care about providing a great guest experience.

I will start with the positives about the hotel. It is a really lovely, well kept hotel, with really attractive and comfortable and big rooms in a great location. The beds are comfy, linens upscale, bathroom updated, views (at least those that face the river) amazing - definitely a top hotel experience!! The minor negatives are: one or two unfriendly front desk staff (they did nothing wrong, but just weren't terribly welcoming), extra charge to use their computer for 15 min to print out 3 pages of a legal document and a weird entrance, currently surrounded be scaffolding (not their fault). That said, I would absolutely stay here again .

We (husband, son, I, and two dogs) came for one night while visiting the area for college tours, staying in a two queen bed room. We preferred this Cambridge location and hotel to the Nine Zero in Boston. I’ve found that hotels that have recently become part of the Kimpton family lack the funk factor I cherish. This property, while not creatively themed, was very nice. You pull off the busy main road into the circular inner courtyard to check in. We valet parked for $40 cash with in/out privileges. The lobby is large, clean, and inviting. The people working here were great, offering our dogs treats and tennis balls. Our room, which faced the canal, was large and spectacularly clean. Beds were comfortable. There was adequate storage space and an empty fridge. My son appreciated the large SMART tv on which he could stream his shows. We didn’t hear any noise from connecting rooms. The bathroom was spacious and basic. One reason I didn’t award 5 bubbles is bc they were stingy with towels and no wash cloths were provided. There was a lipstick-looking mark on the shower curtain. My other issues were no dimmer light in bathroom and no discernible fan to cool room. We all remarked we’d appreciate air circulation. The windows do not open even a crack. Breakfast at the attached Bambara restaurant was good and priced at what you’d expect for a hotel restaurant. For dinner we got take out at the close by Cheesecake Factory and ate at the lobby tables. In addition to CF, the attached mall has a small food court. I walked all over with the dogs; there’s plentiful green space by the canal next to the hotel. There aren’t many restaurants or cafes in quick walking distance. A pick-up only Starbucks is a 5-minute walk. We wouldn’t hesitate to stay when traveling again with our dogs.

I checked in real late during a company event & Monte was able to help guide and assist with everything professionally with ease and sophistication . Walking through the front entrance of the hotel, my eyes were pleased by the lighting and colors of how the lobby is put together . Overall, I felt I was well informed and taken care of. Thanks , Monte!!

Stayed the weekend for a Celtics game & an art show. The hotel was clean & the staff was great. Tara, the hotel manager, greeted us at the desk as she was putting together a welcome package for some guests. Sophie checked us in & filled us in on the amenities they offered. The room was great, mix of modern & retro decor. We especially liked the bathroom. I’d definitely stay there again.

The Hotel Marlowe faces the Charles River, is an easy walk to Kendall Square, MIT and is a favorite hotel of mine in the Boston area. It’s an easy walk over the bridge, past the Science Museum and you will. be in Boston in 15 minutes walking time. I love the outdoor drop off area and gathering space, the Kimpton Marlowe offers bikes for an early morning ride or kayaks if you want to try your hand at a water adventure. the rooms are well done, the suites have a great size bathroom, shower and tub space, it’s always quiet, the staff is friendly, efficient and if you are an IHG member you will probably be bumped up to a nicer room. The parking garage is easily accessible and offers reasonable parking rate if you stay at the hotel ($30). I have stayed at many Boston Hotels but the Kimpton Marlowe is my favorite. Easy to walk to Fuji Restaurant, EVOO and Tatte Bakery. My bed was super comfortable this last visit and I also had a very cool and enjoyable view of the bridge at night.
