guest reviews

guest score: very good | 10 out of 10
by: Betty
The hotel is located in central area of bet. Boston & Cambridge. The route is near to all points and the public parking is convenient. The hotel is just off the Charles River and adjacent to the Cambridge Galleria. The staff was friendly, and cordial. They were well informed and were able to meet an emergency call we needed for the hospital. As it turned out, Mass General Hospital was just over the river and they were helpful to hail a taxi and point us to the hospital directly. We were there in five minutes.
pros: Cordiality. Cleaniness. Allowing our pet w/o additional expense. Accessibility to key points in Cambridge and Boston.
cons: None. Except the rate is going up higher in July/August.

This is an excellent hotel with great services, amenities and staff. The rooms were very comfortable and nicely sized. They hotel is very friendly to kids and pets, which is a treat. The hotel is close to the T line, which you really need to take if you're going into Boston. The Cambridge Galleria is attached and the Science Museum is within walking distance.
pros: The little things were great - like the wine hour and coffee in the morning having those things, but also options for kids. Also, they gave us a goldfish while we were there. The kids love that. The staff was very kind, helpful and pleasant.
cons: Not really. If forced to say something, I'd like it if the curtains blocked out a bit more in the morning.

I know I rated everything ten be this hotel really earned it. We loved the flavored water bar as we entered. Our room was beautifully furnished. The bathroom was large and well stocked. The t.v. was big with a great picture. But what we liked best was the friendliness of the staff. By the way they gave us a complimentary $10 mini bar certificate. Having spent the last 2 decades visiting Boston, if asked by a friend this would be the hotel I would suggest for them.
pros: My wife and I don't like the Marlowe, WE LOVED IT! This is our third visit to the hotel and we believe this is a great hotel at an affordable (for Boston) price. The entire staff is very welcoming, starting with the doorman and front desk.
cons: I wish parking was free.
