We selected this hotel as one of us ran the Boston marathon. We enjoyed our stay from the moment we checked in (nicely welcomed by Carolina) to our leaving the hotel. We appreciated that all staff would say hello when meeting you. We enjoyed the complimentary glass of wine during the happy hour and the coffee in the mornings. The...

I really like posting reviews like this. I was originally planning to stay at another hotel in Cambridge but after reading reviews here on TripAdvisor, I decided to switch to the Hotel Marlowe. I sought the lowest price online and with some mobile travel apps but while I found a low price, it didn't allow me to confirm that I...

Visited Boston with my wife and daughter for college visits. Thought that visiting during Easter weekend might be harried, and that the hotel staff would be preoccupied. Couldn't have been more wrong -- the hotel was in great shape, is in an awesome location, and the staff was superb.

The hotel was comfortable and especially accommodating to runners and family of runners for the Boston Marathon. The staff provided complimentary pre-race food, like bagels, granola bars, fruit,etc. The location was near public transportation (Green line).

Reservation was made through a third party, who made a mistake in the reserved dates. When we arrived, we encountered the problem. The hotel Staff went the extra mile to fix the problem even though the mistake was not theirs, and make sure we had a great place to stay. They went well beyond what was expected and our stay...

Second time I've stayed and am impressed with this hotel. Very comfortable bedrooms - nice bed and comfy pillows, plus good temperature control and quiet. Desk easy to work at and good plug Points. Options for dinner felt limited as a non fish water but staff were very accommodating. The pasta and grilled asparagus were perfectly cooked. Highly recommend the...

This is not a review of the rooms because we didn't stay over. We had our daughter's Bat Mitzvah celebration at the hotel this past Saturday night, and everything was fantastic! The hotel could not do enough for us and for our guests. Some of our guests did stay at the hotel that night and raved as well, but I...

This was my first visit to Boston and I knew nothing about the city, where to stay, what to see, let alone what hotel would be clean, close to everything etc. So I looked to see if there were any Kimpton hotels in Boston because every time I've stayed in one - I have been very happy. Their decor is...
