Five nights here almost wasn't enough. Perfect two room suite, about 600 sq ft. Furnishing, service, staff, all superior! They treat you with genuine concern. This is a posh, pricey place which you need to indulge in every now and then. Great location! Can walk easily to subway. Stay here and you'll be very pleased.

The Kimpton Hotels are an amazing value... the Hotel Marlowe was our first experience of their boutique hotels. They have the best toiletries... Aveda products - so you don't have to bring your own shampoos, and conditioners. Loved the animal print robes! :) If you are a member of the Kimpton club you get wifi as well, we couldn't find...

We have stayed here several times on the way to Maine and also while visiting family in the area. It is a lovely, boutique hotel. The amenities are very nice and they offer you a list of additional free amenities - more than most large hotels. No complaints and I usually can find things to complain about.

I will be relocating to Cambridge and used the Marlowe and as a base of operations for exploring the area and neighborhoods. The service was terrific and friendly, the room comfortable, and they are clearly prepared both host people and pets with elegance. I highly recommend this hotel.

Everything was top-notch from the minute we arrived to checkout. We arrived very late, by plane. The first contact was the valet allowing our daughter to park as we settled in. He even suggested it. The beds are incredibly comfortable. The rooms are updated and spotless. The water pressure is wonderful. The view we had of the city and river...
