Rumble in the jungle in your leopard print robes which match the carpeting in this East Cambridge Kimpton hotel. The rooms are colorful, luxurious and fun in a quirky way, the staff is ultra attentive and helpful, there is a daily wine social in the lobby, a lively bar scene, an on-site restaurant, while the hotel is overall canine friendly.

    Staff was very accommodating and friendly. Nothing was too large a task for them.

    Beds were not very comfortable, and my allergy to down was not noted. Room was also extremely hot. Additionally, our room was listed as a double room (2 double beds), but we were given a king size bed. This was fine, as the only reason the double room was booked was because it was the last room available and we actually preferred a king, but if someone else who had needed two doubles was to find they only had a king, this could have been a huge problem.

  • Group of friends
    9.6

    Pretty much everything. Bed was amazing, had pretty good nights' sleep (see below), room was very quiet, very clean. Had a dinner and a buffet breakfast in restaurant, dinner was over-the-top good and breakfast was great.

    I wish my room could have been cooler at night. My guest's room was also great except that he had a very, very loud neighbor who was making phone calls at 3 and 4 in the A.M. using his outdoor voice.

  • Older travelers

    This hotel diffidently has the "WoW" factor. The staff were so friendly and helpful. The bed was so comfortable, it felt like you were sleeping on a cloud. I would certainly Recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Boston.

  • Group of friends
    9.6

    I find the hotel was very feel located. The design of the hotel is really beautiful. The room was very clean and good looking. I will for sure look at this hotel next time I go to Boston.

    This hotel is surface posh with little attention to detail. Sit in the booths in the restaurant - they are terrible. Why do the doormen have the ridiculous panama outfits? Again sit in any of the lounge seating, is there someone that it is comfortable for? Music at the entrance to add a little atmosphe of excitement is fine - if it is aimed at the entrance the speakers are poorly placed and the insipid music fills the atrium and pounded through my third floor window. When I asked to be moved the desk explained there where no rooms to move to and did turn the music off. At first rate manager notes that a customer is that upset and offers to change on the next night. Nothing. First and last for Kimpton for me. There's no way this is worth the price. Hotel Marlowe needs to figure out what it wants to be.

  • Family with children

    A very elegant, modern, well located hotel offering bicycles and canoes, complementary wine and very safe and comfortable rooms.

    Nothing, just a bit pricey but worth every penny!

    Convenient location, efficient and friendly staff, reasonable rates, ideal for short business trip and would consider returning for family / leisure also.

    Second staying and it exceeded my expectations again. Fantastic staff and location

  • Family with children

    Pet friendly, luxurious coffee/wine area with plush pillows, friendly concierge, nice place to stay!

    The location was not as convenient to mit as we were led to believe. Would stay closer to a t station next time.

  • Family with children
    10.0

    Interesting decor, helpful staff and safe convenient location. Wine reception and onsite restaurant/bar offered easy opportunity for relaxing drink and meal without having to seek beyond the hotel after a full day. Although I didn't travel with a dog, I was impressed at the enthusiastic and meticulous care I observed the staff giving to the animal guests... Very kind and compassionate. If you hadn't seen the dogs... You would have never been aware of their presence. Everything was very clean.

    The food in the restaurant was good, but not exceptional. For the price, it should be better. We ate there twice for convenience, but I would not recommend it to others based on the food.

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    Great looking/staff very nice/proximity to mall was an unexpected advantage/decent price for the accommodations

    The food in the restaurant wasn't that good. Tea and coffee service stopped at 10 A.M. water service in the living room area was often empty

  • Single

    The bed was very comfortable. The wine reception was a nice idea. The bathroom was small but very nice too although the water pressure in the shower was poor.

    Poor water pressure in the shower.

    Hotel staff is well trained and friendly. also, our room's cleaning lady was so nice! We were very happy to talk with her!

  • Group of friends

    The service is perfect.

    I did not find probably because I only stayed at there one day.

  • Single
    7.8

    Hotel is in decent location, front-desk staff are efficient and courteous, and all is clean and fine, generally.

    This particular hotel completely overuses the "compass-rose" motif virtually everywhere you turn-- and in (again overused) golds and browns. The breakfast was just adequate for a hotel of this price and caliber, and window blinds/curtains simply do not hold out sunlight in the A.M.'S.
