I have rarely been in a hotel where I have felt there was some new coolness every day in different ways. I will definitely select the Marlowe for all my Cambridge trips in the future. Room, staff, atmosphere, all the pampering...Wicked Awesome!

Great weekend near MIT

Would recommend Mon, Oct 12, 2015
I spent the weekend up with the kids in Boston since my son had a weekend event at MIT. It was a quick 10 min drive to MIT which was perfect. We were 1-2 blocks from the Museum of Science, which is where we spent most of our time. Breakfast was delicious, not included in price. Valet parking was prompt and efficient. Check in and out efficient, staff very friendly and helpful. Beds very comfortable, bathroom was spacious with all the amenities. Room very clean. Kids and I loved the ambience of the hotel, and we all loved the room. They kept saying how this is the best place we have ever stayed! One funny story--my son went up in the elevator by himself to grab something from the room. He took too long to press the button, so the elevator shut down to conserve energy--environmentally friendly. Soon, he got stuck in the elevator until another couple got on.

Luxury hotel in a great location. Attached to a mall which did not impede on the quality of the stay and added some convenience. Lovely, affordable boat tour leaves from cambridgeside exit of mall.

Delightful stay at the Marlowe Hotel

Would recommend Wed, Aug 12, 2015
It's a large hotel but doesn't feel so. Beautiful public spaces and quite, comfortable, spacious rooms. The staff is terrific - doorman, reception, restaurant, cleaning - all are friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. We love Kimpton hotels - we've stayed in three of them and every one has been a great experience.

Great location, friendly staff

Would recommend Mon, Jun 22, 2015
This is a fantastic hotel! We arrived in from a red-eye flight for a four night stay. Upon arriving, we asked if we could leave our bags. The friendly front desk staff allowed us to check in early and helped us with our luggage so we could get some sleep. The bed and room are very comfortable, and the air within the hotel is fresh and clean. The hotel is within a block from Penn Station and a short walk to the Empire State building, the theatre district, Grand Central Station, and more.

Very helpful and courteous staff nice size room and excellent bed. Location was very good for us, easy auto access and nice access to path along the Charles We walked across the bridges to North end, the Common, Beacon hill and up to Kendell Square. Only downside was there is no business center to use but the staff was happy to accommodate.

A restful oasis during a difficult trip

Would recommend Wed, Mar 18, 2015
My flight was delayed and I didn't arrive in Boston until 2am. I had only a brief time at the hotel before an early morning meeting. The staff and amenities at the Marlowe made my brief stay comfortable and easy. Nice breakfast at the attached restaurant as well.

Awesome Location

Would recommend Mon, Mar 2, 2015
This hotel is located near to everything, especially Macy's which has everything we wanted for the trip. The hotel is beautiful. My friends came and waited for me at the hotel lobby and they impressed with the decoration. However, my boyfriend prefers sleeping with the thin pillows and this hotel has only think ones that my boyfriend ended up sleeping on the bed itself without using any pillows.
