We had a fantastic stay. The room was beautiful, the view was gorgeous, the beds were comfortable and the staff was friendly and attentive. The room came with a blutooth speaker built into the clock radio, which I can't understand why more places don't do that. We actually forgot our at home and were disappointed until we found one in...

I'm glad you love the bluetooth speaker, it's my personal favorite in the room, but then again, I picked it out so, I'm a bit biased! Thanks for the great review and hope to see you soon! Joe Capalbo General Manager joe.capalbo@kimptonhotels.com

This is a beautiful hotel with nicely decorated rooms and friendly staff. You can tell that folks working here have pride in their jobs and the hotel.They have many nice touches including a guest wine hour between 5 and 6, and coffee in the morning.

I travel to Cambridge on an almost weekly basis, and without a doubt, my favorite place to stay is the Marlowe. From an attentive doorman to the excellent front desk staff (who make every effort to call you by name whenever they see you) to the very personable bartender, everyone goes out of their way to make your stay as...

This was our first stay at a Kimpton hotel, suggested by a friend who made reservations there for Super Bowl Sunday. The draw was that it is pet friendly and they were offering a nice package for Super Bowl. We both brought our dogs. Yes, it's awesome you can bring your pet and have them treated like kings/queens (bed and...

Had a brief stay here while in Boston only for a couple of days, but loved it! The hotel has a wine hour every evening from 5-6 wherein they serve complimentary wine and cocktails to all the guests as a way to facilitate interaction between guests. The staff were all extremely helpful and went out of their way to attend...

This was my first time staying at a Kimpton property and I will certainly be back to one of their many hotels! It was the little touches that really made the stay fantastic, they let me check-in early (with a view upgrade), sent up a lovely welcome amenity that night, helped me with questions, and the staff always seemed like...

I absolutely love this hotel. The service and staff are top notch; they literally do everything to make certain that you have the best stay possible. This was my 2nd visit to this hotel and there was a "welcome back" note and fruit plate waiting for me in my room. Their attention to detail is really impressive. Bambara, the restaurant...

My wife chose the Kimpton for our 20th anniversary weekend stay. The hotel was beautiful inside and out and spotless. Service was 5 star and the attached restaurant Bambara also impressed. Add-one like a free daily wine tasting event were exceptionally done. Highly recommend the kimpton for any special occasion or business trip.
