Healthy Travel: Feel OM-azing Package at Hotel Marlowe in Cambridge

Hotel Marlowe's Feel Om-azing package review -- great option for healthy travel in Boston/CambridgeI had the best mini staycation last week! Hotel Marlowe in Cambridge recently started offering a package for those looking to maintain a healthy lifestyle during their stay. The Feel OM-azing package includes an overnight stay in one of their gorgeous suites; a personal in-room yoga lesson provided by Melissa Milling of Live Sano; a healthy breakfast from Bambara (the hotel’s restaurant); a cold-pressed juice; and their Yoga Mat Rollout Service, which provides you with a mat, blocks, towels, water and a healthy post-flow snack of fresh fruit and mixed nuts. With the stress of my knee injury and a busy work schedule, this overnight was exactly what I needed! 

The Hotel & Room

Hotel Marlowe's Feel Om-azing package review -- great option for healthy travel in Boston/CambridgeKimpton hotels are known for their bold design elements, and Hotel Marlowe is no exception. I love the fun patterns and stand-out decor throughout the hotel and room. I was given one of their executive suites and I was blown away at how big it was. Literally larger than my apartment (not that that’s saying much since I live in a studio haha). You walk into a living room space with a desk and television and then that opens up into the bedroom, complete with a second tv and day bed. Connecting the two in a loop fashion is a large bathroom with full-sized jacuzzi tub. Hotel Marlowe's Feel Om-azing package review -- great option for healthy travel in Boston/Cambridge Hotel Marlowe's Feel Om-azing package review -- great option for healthy travel in Boston/CambridgeHotel Marlowe's Feel Om-azing package review -- great option for healthy travel in Boston/CambridgeMy room had a view of the Charles River, which was gorgeous at night with all the lights from the buildings along Boston’s skyline. Hotel Marlowe's Feel Om-azing package review -- great option for healthy travel in Boston/Cambridge Hotel Marlowe's Feel Om-azing package review -- great option for healthy travel in Boston/CambridgeFrom the lobby to the suite, I thought the hotel was excellent and wished I could have stayed longer!

The Yoga Lesson

Hotel Marlowe's Feel Om-azing package review -- great option for healthy travel in Boston/CambridgeShortly after checking in, it was time for my private yoga lesson. I scheduled it this way so that the room would still be clean (an hour into being in a hotel room, my clothes are EVERYWHERE, I can’t help it). I also love doing yoga at night/in the late afternoon as opposed to first thing in the morning because it helps any stresses from the day fade away. Hotel Marlowe's Feel Om-azing package review -- great option for healthy travel in Boston/Cambridge

My yoga instructor, Melissa of Live Sano, was an absolute sweetheart. I loved the one-on-one attention because I was able to tell her what areas are tight (holy shoulders) and she adjusted the lesson to include lots of poses and stretches specifically for me. I felt amazing at the end! Hotel Marlowe's Feel Om-azing package review -- great option for healthy travel in Boston/CambridgeEvery evening from 5-6pm, Hotel Marlowe does a wine hour in their lobby–hello, perfect timing. I finished yoga and wandered down to the lobby to grab a complimentary glass of red, which I enjoyed in my room while cozied up in one of their signature animal-print bathrobes.

The Food & Drinks

Before yoga, room service stopped by with a healthy snack, water and a sweet welcome note. Hotel Marlowe's Feel Om-azing package review -- great option for healthy travel in Boston/Cambridge

Joe didn’t join me until late that evening so I decided to order room service for dinner. The menu has lots of healthy options, and I ended up going with their chopped salad and a side of roasted brussles sprouts. Both were delicious! Hotel Marlowe's Feel Om-azing package review -- great option for healthy travel in Boston/Cambridge

As part of the Feel OM-azing package, you get a complimentary cold-pressed juice. The next morning, I went with their green option which I sipped on in bed while doing a little blog work. Snow was falling outside and it seriously could not have been a better way to start the day.

Other Ways to Be Active during Your Stay

It was small but had everything you’d need–cardio equipment, weight machines and free weights, foam rollers, BOSU balls, benches, etc. Hotel Marlowe's Feel Om-azing package review -- great option for healthy travel in Boston/Cambridge Hotel Marlowe's Feel Om-azing package review -- great option for healthy travel in Boston/CambridgeWith the Charles River and its awesome surrounding bike path right in the hotel’s front yard, they also offer free kayaks and bikes for your use. I’d absolutely recommend taking advantage of them if you stay during the warmer months. The views of the city from the Charles are awesome and the area is always teeming with activity when it’s nice outside. Had my knee not been bothering me, I probably would have gone for a run along the river during my stay.

All the staff were so friendly and helpful throughout my quick, but awesome stay. A big thanks to Kimpton for having me! I actually shot a workout in the hotel room before I left (checkout isn’t until noon so I had some time to work there Friday morning) and that’ll be up on the blog tomorrow. It’s great for doing while traveling or any time you’re short on space and equipment.

  1. i’ve never done a wellness package but have been impressed with kimpton hotels and their fitness centers and yoga mats in the rooms. very cool they offer this package definitely something i would do for a personal trip…business trips thats probably out of the budget range lol

  2. Whoa this sounds like a phenomenal package! The hotel looks gorgeous and a private yoga session would be heaven. Thanks for sharing such a great find!

  3. This looks great! I’ve never done a health retreat but would love it if hotels would provide more healthy options. It would be great to have just a mat available just to do some yoga or bodyweight exercises.

  4. Ive never thought about doing a wellness staycation but its an amazing idea. just some time to synerize with your body and mind. That would be amazing.
