Barbie Dream Blades program at Kimpton Marlowe Hotel
In light of what’s likely to be the summer’s biggest and “pinkest” blockbuster movie opening on July 21st, Kimpton Marlowe Hotel in Cambridge will “roll out” a new Dream Blades program that offers guests access to rollerblades to use while staying at the hotel.
Partnering with nearby Beacon Hill Skate Shop, Boston’s oldest skate shop, Marlowe guests will be offered reduced rates when renting rollerblades for the day. This means guests can easily rent and then rollerblade along the scenic Esplanade, along car-free Memorial Drive on Sundays during the summer, or in the Lynch Family Skatepark which is an easy blade from the hotel.
The cherry on top, Marlowe will also offer guests complimentary use of some fashionable (and safe) accessories including neon fanny packs and bright-colored padding to ensure the adventure is as vibrant as the iconic doll that inspired it.
When: All summer long
Where: Kimpton Marlowe Hotel- Kendall Square; 25 Edwin H Land Blvd, Cambridge, MA 02141
