My wife and our dog stayed at the Hotel Marlowe from December 25 - 27, 2013. This was our first stay at a Kimpton Hotel and our third stay at a hotel in Massachusetts with our dog. The hotel is very dog friendly. They have two dogs bowls, one for water and one for treats, at the front door. Our room also had two dog bowls. There were a lot of dogs of various sizes staying at the hotel. We have a 12 pound shih tzu. The staff was very friendly, even those who found themselves working on Christmas Day. The hotel was clean from the lobby to the elevators to the corridors to the rooms. There was neither a dog smell nor a disinfectant smell. The hotel is next to Lechmere Canal Park, a good place to walk a dog. The hotel also provides doggie cleanup bags. The hotel does also have non-dog amenities. The room was a standard good sized hotel room with an interesting design scheme. There is a wine reception each evening in the lobby and coffee and tea each morning in the lounge. The hotel has a restaurant. We ate one breakfast, one lunch and one dinner at that restaurant. The food was very good, better than a typical hotel restaurant and akin to a stand along restaurant. There is free wi-fi for Kimpton Hotel loyalty club members. The hotel is next to the CambridgeSide Galleria Mall which also had the hotel's parking. There is inside access directly from the hotel to the mall through the parking deck. Our parking pass was good for a few hours after check out, always helpful in Cambridge/Boston where parking is difficult. The hotel is across the street from the Science Museum and a 10 minute or so walk to the Lechmere Station of the Green Line. Kendall Square/MIT, Harvard Square and Boston are a short cab ride away.
