Conference trip to Boston

No disappointments from this hotel chain. The hotel is located adjacent to a shopping center - Cambridge Galleria and close to MIT and Harvard. I felt very comfortable walking. Also, the public transportation, the T, is great (crowded at time during peak hours) and within walking distance at the Leachmere Station ($2.00 fare to downtown). The taxi fare to downtown is $10.00. The taxi fare from the airport (Logan) is $30.00. The taxi rides can be an adventure - skilled taxi drivers. The restaurant served a fantastic meal, offering a chef's summer menu. Do not forget about the afternoon tea or wine offering. The variety was excellant and the atmosphere was fantastic. The hotel has views of the downtown Boston skyline or the canal and walking areas. The hotel staff is very accomodating. I would choose this hotel again if I return to the area! You will enjoy your stay whether for business or pleasure.

nice and cozy

that's a very nice and classy place, in a good and convenient neighborhood -- 15 min taxi drive to the heart of Cambridge, 5 min drive or 25 min walk to North Boston with all the Italian restaurants and cafes. There are also a few good quality restaurants within a short walking distance. Just next to a big mall, so it's easy to grab a quick breakfast and lunch. The hotel offers free tea in the morning, and (I believe) wine tasting in the evening, which was quite appealing. In short, choosing between a few hotels in the area, I would recommend [...]

Very friendly staff

Good location, close to subway. Location Nice area with a mall connected. Staff were very friendly. Happy hours were an extra perk with free wine from 5-6 p.m. daily. Very helpful staff.

Hotel Marloe-boutique at its best!

Enjoyed the hotel very much. We were greeted warmly and cordially. Great first impression. Loved the decor. Rooms were good size, but there was a lack of drawer space. Great shower head pressure. Afternoon wine hour was nice and a good way to meet other hotel guests. All the staff was friendly and helpful. I would stay here again and would recommend it to anyone who doesn't mind the short commute to the sights of Boston.

Go to the North End and the Aquarium area for great choices in food and ambiance. Quincy Market is nearby. Learn to use the T. Great bargain.

Good, quality hotel

This is a very good, well run hotel. The only difficulty is the complicated traffic pattern approaching the hotel from the West.

Boston Marathon

Stayed in the hotel for Boston Marathon weekend. Everything was great and the staff was friendly and helpfull. The location close to the T made getting around the city very easy. Next time I'd stay another day to enjoy the hotel after the race.

I never knew I could like leopard print

Leopard print -- I'm not usually a fan, but it works in this hotel (seriously). The decor is definitely different, but it fits the personality of this hotel and makes it interesting. Hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. Hotel restaurant is good. Within walking distance of some great places to eat (try the Hungry Mother and Friendly Toast in Kendall Square and East by Northeast on Cambridge St.). We walked in to Boston fairly easily.
