This place is TOP NOTCH! My husband and I stayed here with our 2 large labs - we (and our our dogs) were treated like royalty. This hotel is ultra clean - don't know how they keep it so spotless with all the dogs there but they do. Large vases filled with dog bones, pet sitting, dog beds in rooms,...

The family used to travel together and stay in different hotels, and we ended up liking some hotels like no other. One hotel we booked online was Hotel Marlowe, a Kimpton Hotel in Cambridge, Massachussetts. This was when my youngest daughter with her family, including her in-laws and me travelled to see Boston, particularly Harvard University. The room that we...

Superb treatment as soon as we pull in. Its our place to getaway from kids/work, for a weekend. Nice rooms, great staff, and worth the extra money for the upscale decor. Only if they had a pool and jacuzzi could it be better.

Hotel Marlowe is the nicest, most dog-friendly hotel I have ever stayed. The room was clean and comfortable (really comfy bed and pillows). The staff was extremely nice and helpful. I have stayed at many Kimpton hotels and love everyone of them. Hotel Marlowe is definitely my favorite. They are so kind to dogs. I have seen big dogs walking...

i explored many hotel options while planning a trip to Cambridge and I kept going back to the Hotel Marlowe website due to the online reviews. Little did I know what an excellent choice it would be. My son was accepted to Harvard and we traveled out here to tour the campus and to help solidify his decision. We ended...

We stayed for 2 nights on personal recommendations from friends and loved our first experience of a Kimpton hotel. A special mention to all the staff as they were so friendly & helpful and went the extra mile to advise.

I'm a huge fan of the Kimpton Hotel chain, and this hotel's exceptional service, unique decor, and restaurant are all on par with Kimpton standards. The room was pleasantly large with a King size bed, yet the room still felt cozy and provided a comfortable stay. Our view was of the interior courtyard; if given the choice I recommend requesting...
