The staff was very nice and friendly. I missed the happy hour and they gave me a free wine voucher, which I greatly appreciated. The restaurant staff made me feel at home.

Great hotel. Location is good for Science Museum but a little walk to Government Center area. Stayed here before and would again! Staff exceptional! Restaurant was closed under construction. Hotel made every attempt to make up for that! Pet friendly BUT is you are not you really don't know they are there! (we don't have any pets!just kids!)

Heavily used items apparently not monitored

Our mattress was very worn out and should not have passed an (assumed) systematic inspection. Restaurant booth cushion also shot. No fun sitting on a cross board! A systematic review of heavily used items doesn't seem to be in place to catch this sort of thing. Relying on initial customer complaint sets customer up for conflict, also no fun. Great staff though!

Good place to stay in Cambridge

I have now stayed at the Marlow twice and have found the amenities and staff to be great! The only room for improvement would be a better gym and an microwave available in the room

One night stay, very nice

My family came into Boston for 2 days to do some museum hopping and decided to spend the night in the city. The Marlowe was an enjoyable experience for all of us. The staff was proactively friendly, the hotel is lovely. We had a "courtyard view" which I was initially disappointed with, but even so, it was sunny and relatively attractive. I wouldn't pay extra for a city view. Our first stop was the Museum of Science, and the only thing I would change about our weekend is that I would have checked into the hotel and then walked to the museum and back. I'm sure we spent FAR longer driving around the corner than it would have taken to walk. We had dinner at the hotel restaurant, and it was very good food, not spectacular, but very comfortable for the whole family. Our sushi-loving 12-year-old loved the tuna tartar. Room service breakfast was huge, lots more food than I expected. We were well stoked for the day at the Aquarium!

Nice hotel that is not directly by the Charles River but has a view of it and the canal. MY girlfriend and I had a King Suite with a view of the canal. The room and staff were all nice and we were given free complimentary wine at the bar when we arrived. The room was somewhat small and didn't have much in extra amenities for what I paid for, but we did have a nice view.
