Hotel Marlowe Review

If Alice in Wonderland dreamed up a hotel, it might look a bit like the Marlowe—vivid stripes, swirls, and other geometric patterns lend the decor a wild, lively aesthetic. The unique, slightly over-the-top spot manages to be both luxe and wacky, with guest-room accessories like Frette linens, Aveda toiletries, leopard-print pillows, and fake-fur throws. Many of the generously sized rooms overlook the Charles River, and the property offers complimentary wine receptions each evening and free use of bikes and kayaks in summer. Book readings and other literary events are often held in the lobby.

    tucked away treasure

    We stayed in the Marlow for three nights during our visit to Boston. Kimpton had been referred to me by a friend, so I knew what to expect but the Marlow was even better than that! Lovely rooms, staff, and location. They really made my first visit to Boston enjoyable and memorable.
