I spent two nights at the Hotel Marlowe over Memorial Day weekend, and I have to say that I couldn't have picked a better hotel. My brother and I took my dad to Boston for the weekend to celebrate his 75th birthday. Originally, we had planned to bring along his dog, so I was looking for a "dog friendly" hotel....

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Marlowe. Our family booked several rooms including a suite for an anniversary celebration and get together. The hotel staff were wonderful and accommodating - several including the restaurant manager and concierge, went out of their way to provide helpful suggestions and advice. Some advice - make time to take advantage of the...

This is the 2nd time I've stayed at this hotel. It's probably been about 3 years, but the place is still great. The staff are just as friendly and cheerful; the rooms just as clean, quiet and comfortable. The toiletries were just fine, and I always appreciate how they haven't skimped like other places. You can still get Q-tips and...

This hotel is a gem, even though it is located in Cambridge you can get into Boston very quickly. Just a short walk from the Green Line stop at the Museum of Science. It's location in Cambridge makes it more affordable, the rooms are nicely renovated and very clean. They accept dogs and do not charge an additional fee, there...

I recently spent the weekend in Boston and stayed 2 nights at the Hotel Marlowe. The decor and ambiance was very trendy and eclectic. The entire place had such a clean smell which I only notice in a few hotel brands. I am an InTouch member so as soon as I checked in I got coupons for free breakfast and...

We drove down from Montreal to Boston the same day the Bruins were playing in town on June 19th. We were tired and excited to arrive at the hotel. The staff at the front desk were all wearing their Boston Bruins t-shirts ! We were so happy to see that as we were in town to watch the game at...

After looking at all the positive reviews about Hotel Marlowe, I chose it in lieu of a nearby hotel where my conference was actually held. Of course, it's part of Kimpton Hotel family, so my expectations were high. The decor was very chic, fun and contemporary, from the lobby area to the guest rooms. It's also right next door to...

For Father's Day, we visited our son who is pursuing a PhD degree in Cambridge. At the last minute, we received a weekend special announcement from the Kimpton Hotels. What a wonderful experience!

This hotel was a highlight of our recent trip back east. The room was lovely. The staff was exceedingly gracious. The location was very convenient and despite the nearby road construction we heard no noise on the 5th floor. I dinged the location slightly, because construction makes travel by car to the airport inconvenient. If you aren't headed to Logan,...
