Had a brief stay here while in Boston only for a couple of days, but loved it! The hotel has a wine hour every evening from 5-6 wherein they serve complimentary wine and cocktails to all the guests as a way to facilitate interaction between guests. The staff were all extremely helpful and went out of their way to attend...

This was my first time staying at a Kimpton property and I will certainly be back to one of their many hotels! It was the little touches that really made the stay fantastic, they let me check-in early (with a view upgrade), sent up a lovely welcome amenity that night, helped me with questions, and the staff always seemed like...

I absolutely love this hotel. The service and staff are top notch; they literally do everything to make certain that you have the best stay possible. This was my 2nd visit to this hotel and there was a "welcome back" note and fruit plate waiting for me in my room. Their attention to detail is really impressive. Bambara, the restaurant...

I have lived in the Boston area for years now, and as a Bostonian, I know many of the great hotels in the area. I picked Kimpton Marlowe. I took a lot of time to make plans for a special occasion (I had just gotten engaged, and had been away from home for a while, and wanted to surprise my...

My wife chose the Kimpton for our 20th anniversary weekend stay. The hotel was beautiful inside and out and spotless. Service was 5 star and the attached restaurant Bambara also impressed. Add-one like a free daily wine tasting event were exceptionally done. Highly recommend the kimpton for any special occasion or business trip.

Our stay was just 1 night but I would love to find a reason to go back and stay here again. We only live 45 minutes from this location so there's not usually the need to book a hotel.

This is a good place to go for business or pleasure. It is not a luxury 5 star hotel with all of those services but it is more like a marriott or Hilton, but a step above. First it has a great look inside and out. Sort of Asian inside , hip outside and it is very well kept up....

This hotel satisfied us completely. The staff made us feel good, helping us whenever we needed. The hotel offered us a very comfortable room: big, clean, with a great view. Nothing was missing, neither the morning service because the hotel offered coffee, tea, warm chocolate for all its guests. The fitness center was very well organized with clean fitness equipment....
