The Marlowe has everything you'd expect of an upscale hotel. The location is perfect for looking at the river or visiting the Galleria, but is otherwise a bit far from both Boston and MIT, but there are always cabs in the courtyard. Beds are comfortable, WiFi works well, furniture is funky (check out the lamps). The breakfast in the restaurant...

I'm a big fan of the Kimpton brand, but my loyalty isn't blind. That said, the Marlowe exemplifies all that you'd expect from a Kimpton - great service, fantastic rooms, and fun and quirky touches. Plus, the location can't be beat - you're a stone's throw away from Boston (by MBTA, car, or even on foot), and the self-parking in...

As a fan of Kimpton's I generally seek them out in cities I know they are. This particular hotel is in an "off the beaten" track location in that its not really walking distance to anywhere I'm looking to go, BUT it seems like its 10mins from everywhere. We stayed here to visit colleges and it was perfect. Rooms are...

We stayed at Hotel Marlowe in the Fall of 2011, for our wedding weekend. I grew up on Cape Cod but now live in Dallas, and our wedding was in Cambridge, MA. Anyway, enough TMI on me...

So, first up, this is a pet friendly hotel. For me, that is sweet energy, but if you do no not like dogs t and cats, best stay elsewhere. My room was great, water views, but the bathtub was small - good for kids or animals, but not the lux soak I has hoped for. Room service was excellent, food...

Hi RCoeli, Thank you for taking the time to write us a review! We are very pet friendly, but we understand that some do not enjoy being around our furry friends and we have thought of them too; just ask and we will keep you as far away from the pets as possible! I agree with you too, the room...

Hello rBryanSHoyle, We love when you all come in for the dance! If you have only witnessed the beds, wait until you sleep in them, you will not want to get out! Maybe the outdoor activities will be enough to get you up and moving! Hopefully we see you sooner than next year!

This is my second stay at a Kimpton Hotel and I know there will be many more to come! The hotel is so nice but is also unpretentious. It's pet friendly and I thought it was so cute that I got to enjoy my elevator ride with a pawed pal. The atmosphere is great, location is close to the subway,...

Many good things could be written about the Marlowe: the atmosphere, the great food at the bar (try the French fries: they are fried together with rosemary and sage, thin and crisp. Amazing!), the cozy rooms and the proximity to the commercial mall. But what really makes it stand out of the crowd is the holistic service attitude of the...
