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. When we arrived, they are about to conclude the evening drinking service and so the front desk gave us each one voucher to get a drink...

I really like the Marlowe Hotel...Great boutique hotel conveniently located in Cambridge. Good service. The hotel rooms have unique, artistic decor (not like the other cookie cutter chains). They are right on the banks of the Charles River - great for a jog in the AM. Right next door to the mall for shopping. They have a nice happy hour...

The Marlowe is a welcoming boutique hotel that is small enough to be personal but big enough to offer many amenities and a nice restaurant. The gas fireplace welcomes guests as they step into the hotel. Decor is compass rose/nautical and has a lot of nice touches. The staff goes above and beyond to accommodate and make gusts feel comfortable.

We love to have coffee in bed, so when there was no coffee maker in the room, my husband asked at the desk. A few minutes later we had a coffee maker with pods in our room! There is a mall next door if you need last minute items and it is a 20-minute walk to the Old North End...

My family was traveling from NJ to the Boston area to attend a Celtics game as well as take in some sites. We booked the Marlowe due to its location and price. The only problem for us was that it doesn't offer 2 Queen beds. Since it was 4 of us it was kind of tight. But the Hotel was...

We have a dog and have stayed at Kimpton Hotels before and have been satisfied. However, our last two visits have been disappointing for the same problem. For reasons that I cannot fathom, our Kimpton in Austin and this one in Cambridge suffered the same issue-lack of drawer space. I don't know if this a modern trend but for the...

The room was beautifully appointed and extremely clean, spacious and comfortable. Everyone treated us as though we were the only and most special guests of the hotel. We had one of the best hotel experiences in a very long time--and we have travelled at fine hotels and resorts throughout the U.S., Europe and Asia.
