I am late in writing this review but I can't say enough how awesome the Hotel Marlowe way.
I stayed at Hotel Marlowe for New Year's Eve 2014. This was a last minute stay to extend my inner circle status for 2014 but I couldn't have had better service or a nicer staff. The booking process was easy and a last minute deal made it really affordable for New Year's Eve so off from New York City we went.
At check in I we were greeted nicely and told by the front desk that we had been upgraded to the Presidential Suite. The hotel had heard about a rough year I had personally so they wanted to take extra special care of me. I've been to many Kimpton properties 10+ but I've never received an upgrade like this, the room was amazing. It was huge and had everything you could want. The views of the river were fantastic. I had a pet goldfish Emeril Lagasse already set up in my room. I went out for a bit and was welcomed back with an amazing welcome amenity and 2 cards from the staff of the hotel. I've never felt more appreciated as a guest of the hotel. For New Year's Eve we went to dinner at Bambara the food was very good. We could also see both Boston fireworks shows from our room.
As for the neighborhood the hotel is in itself it is outside Boston in Cambridge so it isn't in the most active area. It is connected to a mall which you can get to through a shared parking garage which is good for when it is cold. The mall also offers a shuttle to the T which comes in handy to get around the Boston area. We were able to explore around without driving which was nice. I would recommend Hotel Marlowe to anyone who is looking for a place to stay in the Boston Area.
Thank you again to all your awesome staff for a great stay.
