My husband & I stayed here overnight for a company event held a few blocks away at the Museum of Science. What a GEM of a hotel! The hotel is very modern/ eclectic designed; we loved our room. We even received a surprise champagne & chocolate covered strawberries tray delivered to our room (they knew it was our wedding anniversary)....

I stayed at the Marlowe for three nights, although I reserved and paid for four nights. The hotel staff was generally inexperienced and seemingly indifferent to the quality of my stay. Certainly this is only my personal experience, and perhaps I am not the right type of guest for them. I have stayed at Kimpton properties for over a decade,...

My husband and I stayed at the Kimpton Marlowe Hotel during the Thanksgiving holiday and were made truly comfortable from the minute we left our car with the valet/bellman to the check in process with Sean to walking into a beautiful, clean and spacious room with a great view. I happened to ask Sean as we were heading out for...

Stay here because it is walking distance to our Cambridge office just on Canal park. However, it is convenient to get to various places like Lechmere T station and North Station and Logan Airport. As you'd expect with Kimpton hotels this is no exception. Well run, great service, beautifully decorated and great rooms. They also do their 5-6pm Happy hour...

Stayed here for one very short night on a business trip. Was greeted personally when I arrived (since I was the only woman left to check in that night). Had a nice welcome treat in my room from the hotel. Loved the early morning coffee in the living room. Not a five because room and bathroom setups are not luxury...

As hardcore Kimpton fans, my wife and I decided to try out the Marlowe for one night during Thanksgiving weekend and were not disappointed in the least. We were granted an early check in and upgraded to a spacious room with a scenic view of Cambridge. The service was extremely friendly and responsive and the hotel was nicely appointed. As...

This was our 6th or 7th stay here. The decor is creative (wacky?), the rooms are well-appointed and comfortable. We love the service mentality here.... any staff member we talk to leaps to help us. Free food and wine in the lobby, when a cup of tea took a little too long to produce, it became a gift before I...

Right from the valet,bell desk, check in to super comfortable rooms this is an exceptional property with reasonable parking rates and walking distance to the mall,Boston Public market and Faneuil. The lounge area at the hotel is very comfy and the complimentary wine glass is an added bonus!

We stayed here while in Boston for the Yale-Harvard football game. The location is a nice trade off between Harvard Square and Boston. You head across the bridge and are near the TD Garden and a short Uber ride to downtown Cambridge. I've stayed at Kimpton's before and enjoy them. This one I would rank just a notch lower than...

We came here for business. This hotel really has a personal touch. When we arrived, we found a table offering beverage (wine etc) next to the check in counter. Immediately I liked this place.
