Brenda and her team are incredible! The details throughout the hotel are unbelievable with every room doning antiques that represent the true uniqueness of this gem. I cannot say enough about Brenda's willingness to accomodate guests and truly be of service throughout your stay. This is a must experience location.

I RARELY take the time to write a review. But I found myself moving apts this week, and HAD to know what the Kendall Hotel used for pillows and bedding for my new room. They responded with the full lineup - links included. We stayed at the hotel in October, and it was so comfortable, and adorable! I would come back in a heartbeat!

My husband and I stayed at The Kendall Hotel for a long weekend to visit friends we haven’t seen in sometime. It was very clean, the room was spacious and comfortable and the service was great. You are in the heart of Cambridge and easy access to Boston and outside the city. Highly recommend.

The Kendall is my favorite place to stay in the Boston area. They are gracious and accommodating, and the hotel has lots of character. Even visiting during covid was wonderful. They have done a great job accommodating new requirements and still providing a nice breakfast (their non-covid breakfast is the best of any I've ever had at a hotel).

We were blown away by how fantastic the entire experience was. The staff was extremely friendly and definitely went out of their way to make sure your experience was more than perfect. The entire hotel as well as the room were both sparkling clean and had such an interesting, cute, and homey decor. We loved every second of our stay and more than recommend staying here!
