Critic Reviews


With large, playfully furnished rooms, the 236-room Hotel Marlowe is one of Cambridge's most family-friendly hotels.



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.



This hip, upbeat, cutting-edge and whimsical property is part of the Galleria Mall and is within walking distance of the Museum of Science.
