The Kendall hotel is a great boutique hotel set in an old fire house. The rooms are nice with quite a bit of American folk art. Very nice breakfast which was included, convenient parking & the rooms were clean & spacious. T stop is very convenient.

The staff is fantastic, Brian (concierge) in particular was so pleasant, helpful and knowledgeable. They offer a very nice breakfast included in the price. The location is fantastic. The subway - red line - is 100 yds from the door, Harvard is 2 stops away and MIT is right across the street. Likewise the Longfellow bridge to Boston proper is...

Historic hotel with tons of charm! Rooms are comfy and clean. Housekeeping is very nice and does a thorough job. The front desk was very accommodating for my father when he wasn't feeling well and we arrived before check in. The 7th floor lounge is a quaint place to hang out. Super close to the T and surrounded by MIT....

This was a great place to stay. I spent one night here and had a good experience overall. The breakfast buffet was really lovely, and the room was clean and cozy. The business center is just one computer and one printer, but the printing is free. The wifi works well throughout the property. The bar in the lobby is super...

I recently stayed at this hotel while attending a conference at MIT. I wanted to do some shopping, and due to my short stay, I asked the hotel if I could have packages sent to the hotel before my arrival. They were kind enough to accommodate me. When I checked in I asked if I could collect the packages and...

My son and I flew in from Chicago to attend the Cubs/Red Sox games at Fenway. The Kendall Hotel seemed like it wasn't too far away and was reasonably priced. The hotel was very clean! Front desk staff was extremely nice and helpful. I needed to print tickets for one of the games. I tried to use the guest computer...

Check in was an example of excellent staff and service - Carla is a gem to your hotel. bed huge and very comfortable. Room an excellent size with a nice mix...

We loved it here! Wonderful staff form the greeting to departure. Very clean and a wonderful breakfast. The rooms were clean and very charming with bottled water for your stay along with tea and coffee.They also provided a wine time as well for the guests. I would highly recommend this hotel! I think there was one bad thing to say...

For great rate and friendly service in the heart of Boston this hotel is a great choice. Parking available onsite.Very quiet but chose a high level room - only 5 floors. No exercise facilities at the hotel but can access fitness center nearby

Stayed here for 2 days last November with daughter. Close to the Kendall Square T and located in a restored /renovated firehouse. Decor reflects its early beginnings and is very cozy immediately as you walk in. There's a quaint area in which to sit and relax near the fireplace. To the right of entryway is the restaurant, which doubles as...
