The best part of the Kimpton Marlowe is the staff - very friendly and accommodating. The rooms are nice but the bathrooms are only ok. The location is not the best unless you are visiting one of the new office buildings in Kendal. It is a short walk to the green line metro but not close to much other than...

We stayed in a Kimpton in Chicago and decided for our Boston trip we would again. Best decision! First, I received an email a few days before our stay asking for a picture of something or someone special so it would be waiting when we arrived. Nice touch! Check in was a breeze. We were welcomed with the most awesome...

We facilitated a management conference at the Kimstpon Marlowe during December. The hotel amenities are great, and the conference facilities were wonderful. We found the rental of equipment such as a projector, flip chart, screen to be very expensive and opted to take our own which was allowed. The hotel is not centrally located if you wish to explore Boston's...

My husband & I stayed here overnight for a company event held a few blocks away at the Museum of Science. What a GEM of a hotel! The hotel is very modern/ eclectic designed; we loved our room. We even received a surprise champagne & chocolate covered strawberries tray delivered to our room (they knew it was our wedding anniversary)....

I stayed at the Marlowe for three nights, although I reserved and paid for four nights. The hotel staff was generally inexperienced and seemingly indifferent to the quality of my stay. Certainly this is only my personal experience, and perhaps I am not the right type of guest for them. I have stayed at Kimpton properties for over a decade,...

My husband and I stayed at the Kimpton Marlowe Hotel during the Thanksgiving holiday and were made truly comfortable from the minute we left our car with the valet/bellman to the check in process with Sean to walking into a beautiful, clean and spacious room with a great view.

Stay here because it is walking distance to our Cambridge office just on Canal park. However, it is convenient to get to various places like Lechmere T station and North Station and Logan Airport. As you'd expect with Kimpton hotels this is no exception. Well run, great service, beautifully decorated and great rooms. They also do their 5-6pm Happy hour...

Stayed here for one very short night on a business trip. Was greeted personally when I arrived (since I was the only woman left to check in that night). Had a nice welcome treat in my room from the hotel. Loved the early morning coffee in the living room. Not a five because room and bathroom setups are not luxury...
