If this is the best hotel in Cambridge, consider staying in Boston.nothing wrong, but not at all a charming spot or hotel. Staff at best is ok. Animal skin replica robes must turn some people on. We would not go back.

Stayed at the Hotel Marlowe from 8/16-8/18 with my family (husband and two kids, ages 9 and 13). Hotel was beautiful and clean and only minutes from the Trolley (which was a 2 minute ride into Boston). Located next to a mall with plenty of "family friendly" dining options. Staff was helpful and friendly. Would definitely stay again!

I enjoyed another excellent stay at the Hotel Marlowe last month. The service and accommodations were as strong as they were on my first stay: the room was actually a bit better, as I was on the outside of the hotel, facing the river, rather than facing inward towards the courtyard. As predicted, visiting in warmer weather made the hotel...
