I go to Cambridge a lot for business meetings and corporate missions. Rooms here are spacious and very clean and very well decorated. Staff is always there to help. The hotel is simply amazing. Will def stay here again. Very close to the mall in a convenient location.

The next time I’m in Boston I know where I’ll be staying- The Hotel Marlowe. The Marlowe is a great looking hotel with a very stylish lobby area. The staff was friendly, accommodating and very helpful. The room was clean, spacious and comfortable. Great location attached to the Galleria Mall with only a short walk to the T station. The...

Hi jpaq68! I am sure the other Kimpton's will not disappoint! Just as you did, I enjoy having the mall and the T right next to the hotel too. Not only can I get in and out easy, but I can get in and out easy with all of my shopping bags! See you soon and enjoy the other hotels!

We recently stayed here for 3 nights. The room was comfortable and well decorated. The service was outstanding. There is a $30 a night charge for valeting your car though, so be aware. We did not try the restaurant as we were visiting family in the area. We highly recommend.

I love Kimpton properties and the Hotel Marlowe does not disappoint. Great staff, cool lobby, nice rooms and bathrooms. And they take dogs! My only complaints are that the restaurant is so-so and the website is a bit misleading on location. I am not familiar with Cambridge and relied on the website description of the "fascinating and easy" walk to...

Hello travelplan24, Of course we take dogs...we will take cats and whatever other pet you can manage in your room! We are close to Harvard, but it is not a short walk; it would be more of a cab ride; however, with the nicer weather coming our way it could be a nice walk if you are up for it!...

Hello rufuschuckabutty, Thank you for the review! The cab drivers in Boston/Cambridge can be hit or miss and we usually do get good ones in the cab stand in the courtyard. Outside of Cambridge's cab drivers I am very happy you enjoyed your stay! Thank you again and we hope to see you soon!

The Hotel Marlowe is one of those places I love returning to every time my travels take me to Boston. The doormen and front desk are welcoming, rooms spacious and quiet, and nearly anything I could need is within walking distance. (It should be said that Bambara, the hotel restaurant, could be better, but I'll address that in a restaurant...

I recently returned from a 10 night stay at the Hotel Marlowe. The hotel is smart and clean and my room was very comfortable. The best thing about this hotel, though, is its staff. They were consistently warm and friendly, while remaining highly efficient and helpful. An extremely well-run hotel which I would heartily recommend to others.

Just a quick story to demonstrate how dedicated they were to having me as a customer. It was 11:45 at night and my 'neighbors' were still quite loud (a gaggle of teenage girls I believe) so I called downstairs and asked them to talk with them about it. Long-story short it wasn't the best night dealing with these neighbors but...

Hi presidentsdaddy! Sorry about the gaggle of teenage girls that kept you up! We knew that must have been annoying and thought you would enjoy the drinks, a few more and maybe you would have forgotten all about the previous night! I kid, I am glad you enjoyed the drinks! We hope to see you soon for a quieter night!

What a gem! The rooms are lovely and very comfortable. Nice Wine reception in the evening. Front desk staff very professional and helpful. Pets are welcome and there are dog biscuits at the front desk! Gym should have sanitizer in it and they could use a few more treadmills. Had lunch and dinner at the restaurant. Lunch better than dinner....
