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. I can only... More

This was our second time staying at The Kendall. I absolutely love it here, so quaint, homey and comfortable. Perfect spot for touring Boston and Cambridge, easy access to the "T". We loved the breakfasts, they were great for starting off the day, we also enjoyed being able to eat outside on the patio. Rooms are very comfortable and clean,... More

By far the most empathetic and engaging attendant I have met. I came in late and needed to get coffee in order to do some prep for an interview the next day. All the stores were closed in the area. (it was a Sunday night.) Chris went in and made me coffee himself. I also observed his interactions with other... More

Thank you for taking the time to share your interaction with Christopher - not only is he great with our guests, but also great to work with! He takes a lot of pride in his job. We hope to see you back soon. Cheers, Brenda More

Lovely & good sized room, the staff are so friendly and welcome you as well as being helpful. It was good to stay somewhere with history and a story and being in a fairly quiet area away from the town centre. It was also wonderful to stay somewhere where breakfast in included - a first for us in the States!... More

Arrive early yesterday at the Hotel, coming into Boston to see a Red Sox game for the first time. My room wasn't ready yet when I arrive at 10am. Brandon the Front Desk gentleman was able to get me in my room around noon. He was very well-spoken and pleasant upon my arrival and departure. My room was very comfortable,... More
