Loved staying here. The hotel was very clean, modern and hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. Close proximity to lots of touristy things. We walked everywhere or took uber. Perfect spot to stay if you've never been to Boston before. The Boston Duck Tour pickup is a 5 minute walk down the road. Lots of things to do in this area! Loved it, and will definitely be back!
It was a ease staying at Hotel Marlowe, nice staff, very clean room, great service and awesome location(quiet, right by Charles River and easy access to the center of town.) I'd definitely recommend this hotel to friends.
The hotel (along with the area/street near it) is undergoing construction. That provided an early-morning wake-up call and the lobby isn't exactly welcoming. The restaurant-bar was close to empty on a Friday evening. The lights were turned up high and it lacked a welcoming atmosphere. Still, this is a solid hotel in an expensive (hotel-wise) city in a decent Cambridge location only a few short blocks from the T.
Cambridge’s celebrated universities, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Harvard, take full advantage of the scenic Charles River. Harvard Square, at Massachusetts Avenue and Brattle Street, is a hotbed of activity, both intellectual and otherwise. Down the road, Central Square supports a lively music scene. Young bohemians trend toward neighboring Somerville, north of Cambridge.
