Along the Charles River across from the hustle and bustle of Boston sits the AAA 4-Diamond Hotel Marlowe. Offering immediate access to both Boston and Cambridge, the hotel is a five-minute walk to the T (Boston’s subway system), making for an ideal resting place for business and leisure travelers alike. The hotel also welcomes pets, who stay for free.

Grab a bicycle and spin through the city or cruise the Charles River by way of kayaks, both provided for complimentary use to guests -- first come, first served. At the end of each day, unwind where drinks are both free and free-flowing: at the hotel’s hosted wine hour 5-6pm in the lobby.

Packed with personality, Hotel Marlowe employs a “discovery” theme with the following motto: “Columbus, Magellan, Dora -- they’ve got nothing on Marlowe.”

Contemporary rooms are spacious with cozy embellishments such as plush pillows, deep armchairs and dimming lamps. Upgraded suites feature floor-to-ceiling windows and telescopes.
