What can I say other than excellent location, excellent service, gorgeous rooms. The staff were wonderful, the food was divine. I have never stayed in a better hotel and I probably never will. This was close to everything I wanted to do, or a quick cab ride away. Beautiful views, beautiful grounds. Valet parking was quick. In-room spa services...need I...

Hi amyislu, You don't have to stay in any other hotel; you can always stay with us! I am sure this is not possible, but when you find yourself in the area we would be more than happy to have you! Thank you!

My college (Threshold-Lesley) hosts its annual dance here every year, and even though Ive been graduated a while back, its always a lot of fun to come back and see old friends that i have not seen for a long time.

Hello rBryanSHoyle, We love when you all come in for the dance! If you have only witnessed the beds, wait until you sleep in them, you will not want to get out! Maybe the outdoor activities will be enough to get you up and moving! Hopefully we see you sooner than next year!

This is my second stay at a Kimpton Hotel and I know there will be many more to come! The hotel is so nice but is also unpretentious. It's pet friendly and I thought it was so cute that I got to enjoy my elevator ride with a pawed pal. The atmosphere is great, location is close to the subway,...

Hi Connie W, I am glad you enjoyed your second stay! As you and others have noticed the location is perfect, you find yourself right on the fringe of everything here. You were not misinformed when you were told about the kayaks! As soon as it warms up a bit we will break the paddles out and get you out...

Many good things could be written about the Marlowe: the atmosphere, the great food at the bar (try the French fries: they are fried together with rosemary and sage, thin and crisp. Amazing!), the cozy rooms and the proximity to the commercial mall. But what really makes it stand out of the crowd is the holistic service attitude of the...

Quite simply this is a great place to stay. I couldn't find anything negative to say about the place. The staff is amazing, the location is perfect, the rooms are beautiful. The on site restaurant has great food, wine and service. It is connected to the mall. Right across the street from the river.

Hi jpaq68! I am sure the other Kimpton's will not disappoint! Just as you did, I enjoy having the mall and the T right next to the hotel too. Not only can I get in and out easy, but I can get in and out easy with all of my shopping bags! See you soon and enjoy the other hotels!

We recently stayed here for 3 nights. The room was comfortable and well decorated. The service was outstanding. There is a $30 a night charge for valeting your car though, so be aware. We did not try the restaurant as we were visiting family in the area. We highly recommend.

Hello travelplan24, Of course we take dogs...we will take cats and whatever other pet you can manage in your room! We are close to Harvard, but it is not a short walk; it would be more of a cab ride; however, with the nicer weather coming our way it could be a nice walk if you are up for it!...

Hello rufuschuckabutty, Thank you for the review! The cab drivers in Boston/Cambridge can be hit or miss and we usually do get good ones in the cab stand in the courtyard. Outside of Cambridge's cab drivers I am very happy you enjoyed your stay! Thank you again and we hope to see you soon!
