My best friend and I had an excellent stay at the Hotel Marlowe. Wonderful staff, a beautiful room and nice little extras made for a fun getaway! We booked through Priceline "Name Your Own Price" because it was graduation week in Boston which meant every hotel was extra expensive. That made the stay much more affordable. Plus, upon arrival they...

I stayed here last year on a business trip - see review. This time round I was for some reason even more impressed. The staff were unfailingly cheerful and helpful. The room was excellent, with superbly comfortable large bed and soft high quality linen. The shower was powerful, and the food and service excellent. I had breakfast there on three...

We planned a spontaneous trip to the city for the night, and after reading several positive reviews, chose Hotel Marlowe. We were just so impressed- it is worth every penny! The staff are all so friendly and helpful, they could not be any more welcoming or accommodating. My boyfriend called the front desk to ask what channel the Bruins game...

We had friends from out-of-town stay here last week for my son's graduation at the TD Garden. The location was perfect, with views of the Charles River and the Boston skyline. It was adjacent to the Cambridgeside Galleria, which makes it convenient for shopping & strolling, and is within walking distance of Lechmere Station on the MBTA's Green line. The...

I have stayed at Hotel Marlowe at least half a dozen times for business trips, and am always happy to go back.
