The Kendall Hotel has the charm and simplicity of a B&B, with the ease and modern amenities of any big-chain hotel. If you're looking for a place with easy access to the Boston downtown area, as well as the city of Cambridge, AND do not want to feel like you're on a work trip, then The Kendall is the place to be! Extremely close to the T (you can get to the Harvard campus or downtown Boston in under 10 minutes) and is a short walk from the MIT campus and a scenic path along the Charles River. The breakfast buffet is quite good for a hotel breakfast (and better yet, is included!) and internet access is free as well. The staff is also very helpful and always courteous. When I return to the Boston area, I would not hesitate to stay here again!
