Kimpton Marlowe Picnic Basket for Two
Kimpton Marlowe Hotel, 25 Edwin H. Land Blvd., Cambridge
When: Available through September 3, 2018
How much: $40 in addition to regular room rates

International Picnic Day might not be until Monday, June 18, but picnic lovers can enjoy this travel deal just across the Charles River all summer long. Guests staying at the Kimpton Marlowe Hotel can give the staff a 24-hour heads up if they’d like to add a picnic basket to their room. (The picnic package is $40 in addition to regular room rates.) Take our advice and pair the basket with complementary use of the hotel’s kayaks, bikes, or paddle boards, for a scenic afternoon along the river.

The basket includes two sandwiches made by Bambara Kitchen + Bar Executive Chef David Bazrigan, sparkling water, and two homemade Bambara cookies. If you’re interested in bringing along your dog for the trip, the hotel will also throw in a small basket for your pet that includes a travel water bowl, gourmet treats, and more. Plus, you can take the basket home as a keepsake, and use it for many picnics to come.
