My wife and I stayed at the Marlowe for one rainy night on our way up to Bar Harbor, but it was well worth it. We chose the Marlowe because it was a Kimpton Hotel - we've stayed at their hotels in San Francisco and Vancouver - and we love the style, the fireplace in the lounge, the wine tastings before dinner, the music in the rooms, etc. The Marlowe did not disappoint. The staff is very friendly and helpful.
The Dante Restaurant across the street was excellent for dinner. And the Marlowe is connected to the CambridgeSide Mall which made shopping very convenient. Located right across the road from the riverfront, there's easy access to the recreational trail for running or cycling. Being in Cambridge rather than Boston seems to keep the price a little bit lower but access to all of Boston is very easy by either car or T. And, of course, it's convenient to MIT and Harvard.
The room is very comfortable and stylish, in a bit of an edgy way, which we like. Call it a W Hotel without the attitude. We loved it.
