Visiting family in Cambridge, had great stay at Kimpton Marlowe. There are many hotels in Cambridge, most are somewhat drab and tired but not the Kimpton Marlowe. Contemporary styling, modern decor, attentive and friendly staff and modern conveniences make this a great choice. We really like the Kimpton brand and try to stay in a Kimpton hotel if possible when...

Popped over for a quick business trip. Reception staff were attentive and polite. Room was fine. Bar was lively and welcoming and dinner was good. Connected to the shopping mall which was good at a time when the exchange rate was attractive.

The hotel provided a very high standard of accommodation with a luxurious bed and spacious room. However, unless you have a car it's location is not ideal. It is attached to an anonymous shopping mall a long walk from both downtown Boston and Cambridge. The tram to Boston is a ten minute walk and it is an infrequent service at...

Thanks for the feedback, so sorry you felt the location wasn't great. We are only a few minutes from public transportation and Boston/Cambridge are very much walking cities due to all the city traffic. Joe Capalbo General Manager joe.capalbo@kimptonhotels.com

Choose this room on a whim. Somewhat pricey but was blown away with our room. Probably one of the nicest room we have ever had. Service was very attentive without being to in your face and just an overall great experience!

This hotel has it all. Great staff, great bar, great decor and great dining. I stayed here for my first trip to Boston and was a little concerned with the location but it's a 5 minute Uber to just about anywhere. If you like swanky digs without the swanky price, The Marlowe is a great choice.

This is such a nice place to stay. The location is fantastic - you can walk to Beacon Hill neighborhood in minutes. The staff is friendly and more than helpful. We had dinner in the restaurant and loved it so much, we stayed for breakfast in the morning. A really hidden gem and great value.

I loved every little thing about our stay in Kimpton Hotel Marlowe! Upon arrival, we asked if our room can be moved to the city view and since it was available, they were happy to do so! Everyone was so approachable! Free wine and beer from 5-6pm, very dog friendly, and very close to the Museum of Science! We would...

This was my second stay here and I absolutely love this hotel. Clean, funky and great service. Wonderful location too. Near to t-stop and attached to a mall. Send them a picture of your pet and it will be waiting in your room. Thanks for another great stay.

We came to this hotel after having a terrible experience with another hotel in the Boston area. This place is very unique and fun to stay in. Free wine happy hour and friendly staff.
