Had a very nice stay here. Just one night but I'd definitely go back. The front desk staff was terrific, the rooms were very nice, it had strong, fast, and free WiFi, and the included breakfast was excellent (eggs, bacon, pancakes, has browns, pastries, etc.). The firehouse theme is fun and quite different than the chain experience. Highly recommended.

I stayed six nights at the Kendall Hotel while teaching/mentoring at MIT. This is a really nice, homey place that pretty much has everything except an exercise room (a five minute away). It is right next to the Kendall Square T station and almost on the MIT campus (key for me that week). Even the food is good although it... More

From the moment Bryan warmly greeted us we felt so relaxed in this exceptional hotel. It was such a treat to find such a treasure in Cambridge. The rooms and all facilities had been lovingly and uniquely furnished. The restaurant was excellent and the breakfast was also of a high standard. Will return!

Everyone at the Kendall was so friendly and helpful. It was like staying with old friends. The breakfast was top shelf and the wine hour was great. We met other guests during wine hour and traded ideas about places to go.

I felt I was stepping into the foyer of a friends beautiful New England home... full of warmth and comfort and Christmas each time I entered the Kendall; my temporary... More

We stayed two nights without our kids and catch a Celtic Game while in the city. The hotel was quite a wonderful experience. My husband and I really felt like we did during our honeymoon. Christopher, in hospitality, was informative and helpful. He hosted the wine bar professionally and was always present and cheery in the lobby when we needed... More

Fortunate to get a room for four adults on New Years Eve. Quaint setup in an old Cambridge fire house. Nice T-stop location. Rooms spacious, comfortable warm and clean. Parking a challenge 77 rooms and 20 spaces. Have been promised a parking charge refund. Also was told while booking breakfast was part of the fee. Not sure if it really... More

Definitely recommended, Cool place, cool designs. Laid back, yet professional staff, you feel like place is your home. Great spacious, clean boutique rooms. Nice location, next to transport. I liked the bigger fridge and microwave in room touch, so you can save money and not be tied into paying for certain foods like in most chains.
