We spent 4 nights here with family. Our daughter has 2 little boys, and the hotel brought in a goldfish as a pet for them. The staff is wonderful, very helpful. We had hoped to use the free bikes and kayaks, but had no time. The location was perfect and we walked everywhere. There are two subway lines very close,...

This was a great location for exploring Cambridge & Boston.

If you enjoy boutique hotels, this one is a bit larger than most, but the decor is nice and service is great. The beds are comfy, the benefits of their loyalty program include free wi-fi, amenities include free bicycles and kayaks. The location has the drawback of being crosstown from MIT and Harvard, but is convenient for leaving Cambridge and...

This hotel is just super nice: big rooms, very nicely decorated. Hotel is quite close to the lechmere T station, so getting to downtown is easy. Also running trails along the river is just across the street. There is even a recommended running route map in the room. A tip for parking; the hotel has valet, but self parking at...

I got to stay in the Hotel Marlow for a conference in July, 2013. Before the conference I had a chance to walk around Cambridge and Boston. The location was great, since it was a short walk into Boston. Also, the trolley green line was right around the corner, so it was easy to hop on and travel around Boston...

We checked in 30minutes ago and already have had service issues. We booked a room for our anniversary and we're put in a room with separate beds.

Got a deal on this hotel through Hotwire. It was located in Cambridge right across from everything. The T is a 10 min walk to the red line and a 10 min walk to the blue line.

The service at the hotel was memorable and the staff was very friendly. As our room wasn't ready when we arrived they offered us a free continental breakfast at their restaurant and were very helpful with all our requests. There is a big Cambridge Mall connected to the hotel to the parking which made shopping (even for groceries) very easy....

Everything about our stay was wonderful, from the greeting as we pulled into the courtyard, the welcoming front- desk staff, to the complimentary cocktails, and appetizers.
