The bed was firm, but slept well in a clean room, but the breakfast was all COLD -- eggs, bacon, french toast -- just everything was COLD. It was expensive for what we received. They said we could park "on the street" if we didn't want to navigate down the huge incline and curve into the garage. It WAS convenient... More

What a pleasant surprise! The Kendall Hotel is a charming, unique hotel. The rooms are warm, inviting and spotless. The breakfast was delicious. We plan to make this hotel our home away for the next 4 years while our daughter is attending college in Cambridge.

The Kendall Hotel is perhaps the best boutique hotel to stay in when visiting Cambridge or MIT specifically. The rooms are well furnished and the hotel service is superb. The breakfast at the hotel is delicious and actually has real eggs, bacon, etc. In fact, the breakfast was so good, that I always had seconds and simply gorged on the... More

I have stayed at the Kendall Hotel at least 3 times now, for business trips to MIT. For the price and location, it is by far the best option in the area. The rooms are clean and comfortable, breakfast is included, and you can't get any closer to a T stop. I highly recommend this hotel for anyone staying in... More

This hotel is quaint. It is good it you want an escape from the rush of corporate hotels and the mainstream, such as the big Marriott across the street. The price is also a few dollars less/night than the Mariott across the street, and this includes breakfast. Having said this, it is for slower pace people. During my stay, I... More

This hotel is so charming. There was not a single thing we didn't like about the place. The room was lovely, the breakfast unlike any other hotel breakfast, the staff were so helpful and friendly, and the location is excellent, conveniently located next to a T stop. We stayed for a close friend's wedding, and while much of the hotel... More

I stayed here for 3 nights at the end of July. After enduring the bumper to bumper traffic driving from New York to Boston it was refreshing to pull up outside this charming hotel. Christopher was on the reception, he was very welcoming and friendly and couldn't do enough to make sure we had an enjoyable stay. Our room was... More

This quirky hotel is located a few steps from the T. It is perfect for exploring Boston & Cambridge both by T or on foot. The rooms are spacious, well equipped and spotlessly clean. The bathrooms are a little tired but of good quality. The breakfast Buffett is plentiful & offers great choice. We would definitely use again

We were a family of 16 visiting Boston for the first time. We stayed at the Kendall in Cambridge. It was a perfect hotel for our family. The location was exactly right, the rooms comfortable and spacious. The breakfast was wonderful. Brenda, the manager was more than accommodating. She did her best to meet our every need.
