The Perfect Hotel

Would recommend Wed, Apr 6, 2011
I needed a room for my brothers and I to crash while we visited Boston for a family reunion. The staff here are kind and helpful. The room was spotless, roomy, with outlets all around for our phone and camera chargers. Everything in the room was great, from the beds to shower to TV - even the view of the courtyard from our 8th story window (I think this was the top floor). The hotel is attached to the Cambridge Galleria, so you merely walk through a private mall entrance and through the mall parking area, never exposed to the cold outdoors. We ate at their restaurant, too, and the brunch was delicious, and the service was excellent. The entire hotel is first class. The worst part was the cost for parking (less expensive than what we paid on Beacon Hill), but you have in-and-out access - and the valet service was quick and friendly. We didn't use the complementary wine tasting service, but we did have coffee in the morning. It was perfect. The location is great, a block from the water. From the hotel we had quick access to Boston, Harvard, Logan Airport, etc. A perfect 3 days and nights.

Shopping hint

The Cambridge Galleria is attached. The restaurant is perfect. The city is close.

Funky and Fun

Would recommend Tue, Apr 5, 2011
Went to Boston to see my son in a performance at Harvard. The hotel was not in the best location for access to Harvard but it was manageable. The room had no dresser. Hairdryer was hidden in a canvas bag in the closet instead of being readily available. There were no shower caps. Bathroom was very clean and the bed was really comfortable. Staff, very nice and helpful. Decor was funky and fun.

Dining

Lots of good restaurants in Harvard Square area.

Love That "Dirty Water"

Would recommend Sun, Mar 27, 2011
We were in Boston (Cambridge) visiting MIT and Harvard as prospective schools. I wanted a hotel near the schools - not just for convenience to walk to - but as a way to provide my family with a good sense of what it's like living here. The hotel did not disappoint in any way. The bellmen were friendly every time we arrived, the front desk answered both big and little questions like the pros you'd want them to be. Best of all, the staff on the floors were continually courteous and friendly ... even the construction workers who were on another floor doing an upgrade were friendly with every encounter. PS the ref above is not to the hotel's water, it's the Standell's song about Boston from the 60s.

Dining

Check out "Master of Science" ... a nice, casual place to lunch or dinner. Also, I love taking the "T." The Lechmere station is a quick walk around the block to get just about anywhere in town.

Pleasant Stay

Would recommend Mon, Feb 14, 2011
This is a luxury hotel with out the price tag! There were many other hotels in the same Boston area with the same or higher rates but not nearly as nice. Spacious room, Lots of extras in the room like iron, hair dryer, all lotions, newspaper. Nice upscale restaurant downstairs. About a third of a mile walk to the subway, but still worth it. So nice to come back to at night!

Shopping hint

A good sized mall is right beside the hotel and you can walk to it under ground

Great Stay!

Would recommend Mon, Jan 3, 2011
We stayed at the Hotel Marlowe for a special occasion holiday date night. We have been guests at other Kimpton Hotels and had a nice experience, so we thought we'd give this one a try. Upon arrival, we were automatically upgraded to a room with a view. Our room was clean, nice, and we enjoyed the floor to ceiling windows and the plush robes. It wasn't the fanciest hotel, but it was a comfortable stay, especially for the price, and very close to everything. We had drinks at Rumbara, the restaurant off the lobby, and they were fine, though overpriced for what they were (typical of most hotel bars). We had no problem getting a cab to our restaurant, and after a nice night's sleep, checkout was easy. This stay prompted us to become members of the Kimpton rewards group. Bottom line: we'd stay here again.

Shopping hint

If you forget anything, the Cambridge Side Galleria mall is only steps away.

Beautiful hotel with great employees!

Would recommend Sat, Jan 1, 2011
The staff was very friendly and the hotel was in a great location. Hotel itself was beautiful. My boyfriend and I just wanted a quite room to relax for the night. Our room was nice. The only bad thing was finding a random sock by a window and a pair of shoes under the bed. Overall, by far the best hotel I've been to.

Dining

There are lots of places to eat that are a very short drive away.

A wonderful experience!

Would recommend Tue, Nov 9, 2010
The hotel was amazing! The staff was always available to answer any questions, to get you anything you need, and help you find your way.

Money saver

I made the mistake of renting a car. Do not do this in Boston. It costs $20/night to park at the hotel, and much more to park downtown. There is always a cab at the hotel waiting to take you wherever you would like.
