I stayed at the Marlowe based upon previous experiences with Kimpton hotels. I love the way the staff makes you feel at home while at the same time provides a luxury atmosphere without being snobby. The Marlowe is about a 10 minute walk to the T stop and cabs are easy to get. It is right next to a small...

I stayed at the Marlowe for 7 days. Despite trying my best to stay positive, I just can't help but leave with a rather average experience. In the spirit of staying positive, let me start with the good things. The hotel staff are friendly. The services are in line with what you would expect of a 4 star hotel. And...

Our family really enjoyed our stay in this hotel. A special thanks to the front desk staff and the concierge, Meghan, who brought a surprise champagne for my wife's birthday!! One note of advice: If you are reserving a room with a view, I would recommend that you ask a room higher than 4th floor. There were large flags right...

Was there for a quick trip for a wedding this past weekend. What's to say that hasn't been said.

Five nights here almost wasn't enough. Perfect two room suite, about 600 sq ft. Furnishing, service, staff, all superior! They treat you with genuine concern. This is a posh, pricey place which you need to indulge in every now and then. Great location! Can walk easily to subway. Stay here and you'll be very pleased.

We have stayed here several times on the way to Maine and also while visiting family in the area. It is a lovely, boutique hotel. The amenities are very nice and they offer you a list of additional free amenities - more than most large hotels. No complaints and I usually can find things to complain about.

I will be relocating to Cambridge and used the Marlowe and as a base of operations for exploring the area and neighborhoods. The service was terrific and friendly, the room comfortable, and they are clearly prepared both host people and pets with elegance. I highly recommend this hotel.
