I recently spent just over a week in the States with my boyfriend, and as well as visiting New York we wanted to explore some of the surrounding areas. After a bit of research we decided Boston was definitely on our hit list, and we were lucky enough to enjoy our first night in the city at the beautiful Hotel Marlowe. Not only is The Marlowe the perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle of busy Boston, but it’s plush, lavish interior is enough to make anyone want to stay for an entire lifetime. Here’s my experience at The Marlowe, Boston…
After a short bus ride (around four hours) from New York, we arrived in Boston and took a ten minute taxi ride to the Marlowe, costing around $10. If you’re flying, Logan airport is only four miles away.
LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION
Whilst in the centre of Boston, the hotel was north of the Charles River so was around a 10 minute walk from downtown Boston, and a less-than-five-minute walk from the Museum of Science. The positive to this is that the beautiful Charles River is right on the hotel’s doorstep, as well as some of Boston’s most beautiful parks.
CHECK IN AT THE MARLOWE
As soon as we arrived, our bags were whisked off us by the charming men on concierge and taken into the hotel reception. As you enter the hotel you can’t miss the room directly opposite, full of plush red cushions and lavish furniture – you really get the feeling of grandeur and luxury the moment you walk in.
We received a warm welcome from the reception staff, namely Jeff, who talked us through the facilities of the hotel and provided us with restaurant recommendations and the best things to do around the city. He suggested borrowing the hotel’s bikes or kayaks and exploring Boston that way (we opted for the bikes).
