    Perfect wedding venue, from planning stages through to the finish

    The Kimpton Marlowe Hotel was the perfect venue for our wedding! Great location, with wonderful photo opportunities inside and nearby, and delicious food and drinks and very helpful staff. Nicola helped us plan everything just the way we'd like -- and had lots of good recommendations for all the decisions that overwhelmed us. We really liked how much of planning and wedding package was done directly through the hotel, vs. having to hire additional outside vendors. The hotel was very reasonable when we were forced to reschedule due to the pandemic (at a time when friends of ours lost their venues and deposits). I couldn't recommend it more highly!

    Couldn't ask for more!

    We fell in love with the Marlowe for its cool details that gave us all of the convenience of a hotel wedding with the charm of a boutique venue. I was looking for a very low maintenance planning experience and the Marlowe was super easy to work with, very response, and helped walk us through the entire process. Ellie Durbin was a dream to work with, very detailed oriented and you can just tell she loves weddings and knows how to manage a lot of personalities! From ceremony to afterparty, there was no issue! Also, the price was WAY more reasonable then any Boston hotel just across the river which is always a plus.
