Outstanding service with Rachel B

The Marlowe is a cute boutique hotel in a beautiful location overlooking the Charles River. Now I’ll shift gears to shouting out Rachel B. The wedding specialist. She was nothing short of amazing to work with. She was very responsive and accommodating. She paid attention to details and brought my vision to life. I can be a little bit of a perfectionist but she was patient with me (great fit for me). She went above and beyond to ensure I had everything I needed to make my wedding a success. I highly recommend the Marlowe, Rachel and her team. The chef is amazing as well and I highly recommend the Statler chicken as part of the menu- it was delicious. In my opinion, it was affordable given the location and of course the wedding specialist adding the extra special touch. Thank you again Rachel.

Beautiful, fun, and personalized wedding at the Kimpton Marlowe Hotel

Rachel Barlaam and the team at the Kimpton Marlowe Hotel recently coordinated our wedding there on December 16th. We had our ceremony, reception, and after party all at the hotel. From the early planning stages through day/night-of facilitation, Rachel and the Kimpton Marlowe staff were amazing to work with. The hotel is beautiful and in a great location if you have many guests coming in from out of town. Our guests loved their stay and the whole event felt personal and intimate thanks to the hard work of Rachel and her team.

Superb hotel and hospitality for a wedding!

I recently held my wedding, reception and post-wedding brunch at the Marlowe Hotel. From the very start, Rachel and the planning team was welcoming, professional, accommodating and super friendly to work with. They offered great suggestions, were extremely communicative and responsive, and on top of every detail.

On the day of the wedding, Kristen was a superb coordinator of all the set up, expertly working with us and staff to ensure all went smoothly. And it did! The rest of the staff were extremely professional, gracious and helpful throughout our stay. They made us and our guests feel right at home.

And the food? It was exceptional! Our guests are still raving about the reception appetizers, entrees and brunch (the following day)! The presentation and quality of food was excellent and the portions were generous.

Everything and everyone exceeded our expectations and the entire weekend couldn't have gone more smoothly. These will be lasting memories. The Marlowe Hotel is highly recommended for a wedding, special event, dinner or overnight stay!

It's always inspiring to work at Hotel Marlowe - the planners are consummate professionals and have provided clients with seamless experiences at every wedding I've covered there. Plus the place has great style and is in an awesome location, with city views and green space on the banks of the Charles for portraits.
