My husband and I got married at Hotel Marlowe this November, 2017. I am an architect, so I thought "I plan complicated construction projects for a living, how hard can planning a wedding be if you're organized and stay on schedule". HAA...I learned, but I was still so spoiled by Hotel Marlowe. We absolutely fell in love with the steampunk-esque aesthetic throughout the entire hotel. We love Kimpton's in general with their funky boutique interiors, but Hotel Marlowe is one of our favorites. They have a beautiful garden in back along a small inlet to the Charles River with gorgeous weeping willows and a stunning stone bridge.
When we met with Ellie, our wedding coordinator, We felt immediately at ease and like we could be our goofy selves and that everything was in good hands. Even I, an OCD, organizational nut, always felt like things were under-control because Ellie was always there with a quick response or suggestion to help guide us throughout the entire process. On the day of the wedding, I (the OCD control freak) was told I was the calmest bride anyone had ever seen. This is entirely because of Ellie, I knew she had it and I didn't have to worry about a thing!!! So I just got to enjoy the day!!!
THE FOOD! People are still talking about it. Rack of Lamb or Roasted Chicken with Mushroom Risotto, or Mushroom stuff raviolis...each one amazing! The staff was so nice, and accommodated everything we asked for. It was super special that when we sat down to eat dinner, we had a sample tray of all the hors d'oeurves and a tray of oysters (amazing)!!!
Honestly, if you want a unique experience, someone you can put your trust in, a stunning location, and to just surround yourself with amazing people, go with Hotel Marlowe and ask for Ellie Durbin! Love you guys! Thanks for making us feel so special, and making the weekend go so smoothly and beautifully! - Images below by Hinkley Photo

Beautiful boutique venue with fantastic event support
We held our wedding ceremony and reception at the Hotel Marlowe and it was absolutely wonderful! The venue itself is fun and unique and made for great photos. The space was very convenient - having the whole floor dedicated to the wedding, with different sized rooms so that we were able to adjust which rooms we used as our guest list grew... On top of all that, the food was great - we got a lot of compliments - and the location was incredibly convenient. But one of the key factors that won us over with the Marlowe was our hotel/event coordinator, Ellie D. From our first meeting, she was so on top of all of the details, gave great suggestions when we asked, helped us work through budget/package options, and was fantastic to work with throughout all the planning and the event itself. Thanks Ellie D and the Marlowe for helping us make our wedding so wonderful!Sent on 01/31/2019

We had our wedding at Hotel Marlowe recently, and we cannot recommend it highly enough. First, Ellie is incredible. She was on top of every part of the day, and she was incredibly responsive to all our emails and requests. She was everywhere on the day of, and the entire wedding went off without a hitch. Second, the entire staff was always responsive and professional. Third, the location is fantastic - the interior is great for a wedding, the outdoor space looked fantastic in photos and was easy to get to, and the rooms are excellent. Everyone talked about how much fun they had at the wedding, how much they liked the location, and how delicious all the food was (people were particularly big fans of the short ribs). We didn't have the ceremony at Hotel Marlowe, but we had photos along the canal and cocktails in the courtyard, and everything was perfect.

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.
Hotel Marlowe is such a unique and modern location for ceremonies and receptions. Elegant and fun inside with lovely spaces nearby for an outdoor ceremony. The staff is excellent, I always enjoy working at Hotel Marlowe.
