My husband and I got married on 10/24/15, and our wedding was beautiful, fun, and full of incredible memories. We felt completely supported and well taken care of from start to finish. We signed up for our wedding 7 months before the big day, and the event coordinators at the Marlowe made the planning so easy. We loved the package that we were offered. A ceremony on site (either indoors or outdoors in the park); delicious food catered by the hotel's restaurant, Bambara; a suite for our wedding day; valet parking for guests; and room blocks at a great rate. You get so much more than that though. The hotel is chic and gorgeous and recently added a lovely piece of new art. The new steam-punk styled armillary named Celeste is a unique and beautiful sculpture that adds a colorful glow to the entrance of the hotel. The hotel is also in a convenient location along the Lechemere Canal overlooking the Charles River with plenty of parking and quick access to the T and airport.

My husband and I honestly could not have asked for a better wedding experience.
It was important to us that the night have a fun and laid back flow. The team at Hotel Marlowe went above and beyond to take care of us and make our wedding special. We will be sure to keep spreading the word about how amazing it is to have an event at Hotel Marlowe. Thank you!!!

Nicola & Hotel Marlowe were incredible hosts for my October wedding. When looking for a venue, I wanted a place that was 1. In our price range, 2. Fun & funky, 3. Conveniently located. Marlowe was all of these, and so much more! Working with Nicola was a breeze. She is professional, sweet, personable, and easy to communicate with. Whenever I had a question, she would get back to me right away. At our food tasting, we felt like royalty when we saw a sign with our names outside the conference room and were waited on by courteous and professional staff. (PS. THE FOOD WAS AMAZING and everyone complimented it after our wedding!) When we checked into the hotel, everyone was super friendly -- valet, front desk, etc. They made us feel really special and every minute I was there, I felt so happy that I chose Marlowe for our venue.

On our wedding day, Nicola was there the entire time, completely prepared for everything-- when the hook on my dress popped open, she was right there with a safety pin! When my husband forgot to cut the tag off the sleeve of his suit, she found scissors! She kept the day flowing and when things got behind schedule, she was there with a smiling face to remind us what to do next. I felt constantly at ease because I knew she was there if I had a question about where I should be or what I should be doing, and I was able to relax and enjoy every second of the wonderful day.

Marlowe is also exquisite and unique, making for wonderful photographs. Our photographer was a family friend and was initially the person to tell me about it. I had asked him his favorite place to take pictures in the area, and Marlowe was at the top of his list. The forecast predicted rain (it was wrong!) but I didn't freak out, because the inside of the hotel is so glamorous and beautiful that I knew we would get gorgeous shots, even if we couldn't go outside.

To summarize: Nicola & Hotel Marlowe are phenomenal and I recommend them to everyone!

My husband and I were married at the Marlowe on August 15, 2015. It was an amazing day that we wish we could live over and over again.

Although our contact at the hotel left for another position elsewhere after our tasting dinner, we felt confident and taken care of with all of the staff. Our contact, Amanda, was professional and courteous. She was incredibly patient and accommodating with a few of our sillier asks.

We were married in the park adjacent to the hotel and used the AV services provided by the hotel. Everything was perfect. My husband was hesitant to choose an outdoor venue in case of inclement weather, but the Marlowe has the amazing option of moving inside for the ceremony should anything happen. It helped to put his mind at ease and we did not have to fret about the weather. Our ceremony went off without a hitch and thunderstorms rolled in during the reception. We had the best of both worlds - a gorgeous outdoor venue and rain for good luck!

Highly recommend the Marlowe to anyone looking for solid customer service, wonderfully accommodating staff, and gorgeous event space.

Hotel Marlowe was the venue for my daughter's wedding last weekend. We worked with one of the catering sales managers, Ellie Lucash! She was phenomenal. Her attention to detail, her follow up, her positive attitude and pleasant demeanor made the entire experience absolutely foolproof! She cared about everything that was important to us and did not miss a single detail. We were thrilled. The hotel staff was spectacular. Our guests could not stop raving about the customer service. The food was delicious, and the rooms are lovely. We highly recommend Hotel Marlowe for a wedding venue. It exceeded our expectations!

I really wish I could give 10 stars for each category! Ellie Lucash and her team at the hotel were beyond fantastic. They were very accommodating and so easy to work with. Ellie always made herself readily available for any questions we had and provided quick responses. She genuinely loves her job and that really shows through in how she interacts with her clients. By the end of the experience, she really felt like a friend. We couldn't have gotten through the whole planning experience and wedding day without her!

If you're considering the Hotel Marlowe for your wedding or any event, you can do no better. We were told our wedding was the "wedding of the century", and indeed it was. Every single person at the Marlowe in Cambridge went out of their way to make us feel special, and our guests could not stop raving about the great time they had.

We did a lot of work to transform the ballroom into a beautiful ceremony and reception room, and worked extensively with our amazing coordinator, Ellie Lucash who held our hand every step of the way... literally. Ellie advised us on every aspect of the wedding, giving her expert opinion on what would and wouldn't work in their space. She answered every question we had, and was on call pretty much 24/7 in the days leading up to our wedding. We can't thank her enough for making our day so perfect.

Everything about this hotel, from the decor, to the food, to the exquisite service was 5-star. Seriously, amazing!

We loved the decor from the minute we walked in but it was the friendly, responsive and knowledgable wedding coordinator (thanks Ellie!) that really sold us on the venue! Throughout the whole process Ellie was on top of everything, answered all of my questions immediately and made all of the accommodations that we requested. Since the wedding I've been complimented the most about how amazing the venue was and how helpful the staff were. Also the food is AMAZING and will wow all of your guests! Just as a tip for pictures... As per Ellie's recommendation we went to a little park across the street from Marlowe where there is a great view of the Boston skyline! My husband and I would recommend the Marlowe to anyone!

Super cool/funky decor, great food, helpful staff, VERY accommodating (eg when forecast called for possible rain, event coordinator offered to set up an entirely different room for the indoor ceremony, if needed, to avoid flipping the reception hall, and they were very willing to make substitutions eg swapped apps for late night snacks and swapped beer selection per our preferences)

The Hotel Marlowe was the PERFECT space for our intimate 75-person wedding. Since we had a few guests who were mobility impaired, we wanted to ensure our entire wedding was easily accessible, so the second floor of the Marlowe was perfect. It was spacious, so our guests never felt cramped, but we also ensured no one got lost between ceremony and reception! The staff was AMAZING. They listened to all my concerns and helped me create a perfect day. Mainly, we were worried about the space feeling TOO big for 75 people, but our coordinators helped us set everything up in a way that made the rooms feel like they were made for us. The grounds are perfect for photography, and the space is so beautifully decorated that you don't need to worry about bringing in lots of decorations. If you're looking for a great place in Boston, definitely check out the Hotel Marlowe!

The Marlowe is a beautiful hotel that has a very intimate feel. Amy was WONDERFUL, and helped us plan a perfect wedding. She answered all our questions right away and always got back to us. I never felt like"just another customer", I felt like a friend. The room looked gorgeous and the food was delicious. We felt so special. Our out of town guests were treated like VIPs and the rooms are beautiful. I can't say enough good things about our entire experience at the Marloew.
