This was our second stay at The Marlowe and we were, once again, very happy with the choice. The room was clean and very comfortable (one almost disappears in the mattress topper!), the staff friendly and the location handy for the mall (which can be accessed from the hotel) and not too far to walk to the subway station to...

Hotel Marlowe is our absolute favorite! The staff couldn't be any more warm and inviting- they always make us feel right at home. My boyfriend graduated from the Police Academy, and we came to celebrate with a night away before his schedule gets too crazy. Upon our arrival, they congratulated my boyfriend and welcomed us back. Everyone was so sweet,...

Our stay at the Marlowe was extremely pleasant. The friendly staff went out of their way to make us welcome and seemed eager to do everything they could to make our visit enjoyable. The afternoon hosted wine bar was an appreciated perk. The view from our window overlooked the Charles River and the city of Boston beyond it. The MTA...

What a beautiful hotel with handsomely appointed rooms. While the hotel is on the road next to the river, you cannot see the river from the hotel. If you have a room overlooking the park, you can see the inlet. A great view it is. There are bikes and kayaks to borrow (we did) a mall attached (Galleria) and walking...

There for one night. Great location,friendly well trained staff. Room was very nice and very clean. Will definitely stay there again. Bathrooms were very clean, which is always very important. Room was large and had great views of the City of Boston and Charles River. Ask for higher floors for better views.

I've stayed at various upscale hotel properties including Fours Seasons, Gramercy Park Hotel, InterContinental, etc., and have been very happy with the service at the Hotel Marlowe.
