Wellness Travel + Outdoor Activities in Boston

Find a focus on wellness in captivating Cambridge

Let’s all say it together – it can be really tough to stay fit while on the road. Removed from that familiar elliptical, neighborhood jogging path or around-the-corner yoga studio, even the most disciplined of road warriors can lose their fitness bearings. When traveling, wellness convenience and accessibility are paramount, and that’s what we’re here for. Kimpton Marlowe Hotel’s indoor and outdoor wellness activities make it easy to stay healthy in any season (no weather excuses accepted here!).

We live and breathe yoga, that’s why you’ll find a yoga mat in every guestroom.

Candace is an E-RYT 500 yoga teacher, personal trainer, and best-selling author of the book, Namaslay. She’s also curated an exclusive Namaslay® wellness package with a Mantra Box® for our guests.

Run With The GM

With the Charles River running path across the street, treadmills are only for rainy days. The loop takes runners past stunning photo-worthy spots – from Boston Back Bay’s Esplanade to MIT’s iconic Great Dome. During warmer seasons, Kimpton Marlowe guests can enjoy a morning #RunWithTheGM twice a week for a leisurely run with our hotel team’s local expertise for a 3-4 mile route.

Our water activities are suited for all levels and are available on a first-come, first-served basis during warm weather months.

In-room Workout

Personal trainer Candace Moore offers an in-room, 30-minute workout suitable for all fitness levels. Ten repetitions of each exercise for a total of three sets will have you energized and ready to go in no time!
