Fresh from a new room renovation the Hotel Marlowe a luxury boutique hotel combines contemporary style and neoclassical architecture is perfectly nestled in the heart of Cambridge near the banks of the Charles River and only moments from downtown Boston. Home to MIT Harvard the Museum of Science high-tech and bio-tech centers and Faneuil Hall TD Garden Newbury Street and Logan Airport. The hotel conveniently places the business or leisure traveler minutes away from key areas of interest. Our new room renovation combines soothing accommodations with a playful mixture of styles. Rich golds crimson reds and deep blues mix with details like plush velvet fabrics and high-end finishes making for ideal Cambridge accommodations.

Museum of Science trip

Staff is extra friendly - sometimes seemed a little forced in the friendliness. Hotel was comfortable, really appreciated the robes to use. Very well stocked and accomodated rooms. Good size, clean. Easy walk to Cambridge Galleria for shopping and dinner, Museum of Science right across the street. Really appreciated the call from room service to warn that delivery was within the next couple of minutes. The only down side was on the morning of check out (which is posted for noon) was that starting at 8:30 a.m. housekeeping knocked on the door about every 20 minutes.

Good but bit far from the city central

I was satisfied with the stay at this hotel, but it was little bit far from the city central. In early morning and later in evening, there were not many T (Boston subway) running from/to the most closest station for this hotel. Especially at night, Green line T trains only run to two station before our destination, so we had to wait about 20 minites or more to get the train runs to our station. We did not take our dogs with us, but this is a pet allowed hotel, so it is good for someone who wants to take their pets.

Very Nice

We attended a wedding in Boston and stayed at the Hotel Marlowe. The hotel was very elegant, but I thought the bar/restaurant workers were not as hospitable as they should have been, especially when a large group of us showed up to an empty bar, but they didn't want to let us sit at the tables.

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.

Boston

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!)

Perfect for romance

The Hotel Marlowe was luxurious while maintaining a sense of humor. The room is decorated with faux mink and leopard prints, though doesn't quite cross the line into tacky. The room was spacious and very clean and I felt right at home. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful. The hotel is adjoined to a shopping mall with fun places to eat and shop around. The hotel is also only a short distance from downtown Boston--without the prices.

Excellent Boston getaway

Front desk were great at check-n and wonderfully helpful. Had breakfast in the restaurant and they were also very pleasant and helpful. Our room was great and very comfortable. The room staff were very polite. Can't wait to stay there again. I am happy to say that they are a dog friendly hotel and the location is great for dogs.

Amazing Hotel

The hotel was located just outside of Boston but in the more relaxed area of Cambridge. A great place to walk around and a very safe and pleasant area away from the city but only 2 minutes away across the bridge. A truly amazing room with one of the most comfortable beds i have ever slept in. Great staff that were truly accommodating!!!
