Just spent a few days in Cambridge/Boston and stayed at the Marlowe. Staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Very clean and nicely decorated. The comforter was divine, however, I found the bed to be rather too soft for my preference (down bed topper) and it sort of felt like it sloped to one side. Perhaps everyone slept on the same side and thus it became lopsided?
The hotel is advertised as pet-friendly. Thankfully, for people with allergies, they have non-pet rooms (people with pets stay on one level).
Location was fairly convenient. Just a short walk to where our course was given on the Boston side. Beside the hotel, there is a shopping mall with restaurants. Nearest metro station was about 10min walk.
We didn't have free wifi (because we had booked through a hotel-booking site). Staff informed us we could either use their business centre or register for their rewards program and then get free wifi. Unfortunately, there was a glitch and we were unable to after all. I think that was the only inconvenience. Most hotels offer free wifi for ALL guests (at minimum in the lobby) to allow you to use your own device, regardless which website you use to reserve rooms.
