Like most Kimpton properties, the Marlowe is a fun design statement, hip but not overbearing. It's in a good location in Cambridge, just across the river from Boston, so it's a better value than the 4/5 stars over there. I got a good deal via expedia and couldn't have been happier in my deluxe king view room, overlooking a side...

Hi Papi6022! "The Merry Marlowe"! I love that! I'm sorry you missed our hosted wine hour upon your check in, but you know we would never let you go thirsty! I'm so glad to hear that you enjoyed our amenities in the room, especially the minibar! (It's my downfall too!!) We can't wait to see you again on your future...

This hotel is definitely above average. It is a perfect Cambridge location, close to many of the Biotechs, close to river and attached to the mall. It is a great boutique hotel. The rooms are nice size, decorated with a travel theme flair. The wireless works perfectly. As Kimpton travel member you get some nice perks. It is a short...

Doesnt look too fancy from the outside but it is really,really something. Excellent staff, very helpful and polite. Bambara is a great place to have your breakfast, a snack or dinner. The winehour which is complimentary is a great ting to make guests come together. Even if I didnt bring my own dog I love that its a dogfriendly hotel....

We were in Boston for a long weekend and stayed at the Marlowe - the rooms, the location, the staff - everyone was so nice and helpful! The rooms have obviously recently been redone, and are beautiful and comfortable. The coffee service and afternoon wine were extra touches. It was easy to get to everywhere from here - we will...

Stayed in this hotel in November 2012 while on a long weekend stay in Boston. It was outstanding from the minute we entered the front door. The staff were so helpful 24/7 and very friendly.

Kimpton hotels always impress me. This hotel is as great as the other kimpton hotels. They helped us get reservations for a duck tour, they had knacks which we took out . They are always friendly to our dog. If you are in Cambridge this is the place to go.

and it is still a very nice, friendly, quiet and reasonably well located Hotel. The rooms appear to have been refreshed and I was price was surprisingly good. Traveling for business I am often forced to stay in chains, mainly Hilton, and while they're not bad, Kimpton is almost always better.
