Hotel Marlowe, Cambridge, MA = More of the same

August 18, 2010

Dang.  Twice in a row.  My guess is that the poor beleaguered Kimpton chain has become so popular that they’re getting too full. Always. Last time I was here, I was lost in the crush. This time too. Been here before? Sure, maybe 15 times…  Um, got a computer?

Everyone at the front desk is sincerely nice about giving you a room that you don’t actually want. But guess what? It’s a room you don’t want. Even the Marlowe, a long time favorite, is in need of replacement.

I’m in town for a meeting in Bedford, but instead of sucking it up and staying at the Doubletree there, I hoofed it back to Boston to stay here. Why? Good question.

No new pictures, because the old ones will do just fine.

Time to find a new Boston hotel.  Hotel Marlowe barely squeaks by with four showerheads (bordering on three).
