We loved this hotel! Very authentic and comfy cozy! Each room is different and has memorabilia from the firehouse days. Staff super courteous and responsive.. we walked to Fenway for a game and took a cab back to the hotel. Super fun. Parking a bit tricky but manageable.

The Kendall is located in the tech square of Cambridge near several restaurants and the "t" . We had a reservation for a king room and planned to watch the Pats game but the tv did not work. Crystal from the front desk tried to fix it but was unable to. She solved the problem by moving us to a...

Let’s start with the positive points. The hotel is very conveniently located for visiting MIT, Cambridge but also Boston in general: about half an hour from Logan Airport by bus and underground, just outside Kendall/MIT station. Another good point is the breakfast buffet. The old style of the Kendall Hotel has its charm but also some important drawbacks. We had...

Thanks for taking the time to give us some feedback. Yes, our location is fantastic! Just moments away from the T which takes you into Boston or further into Cambridge. Our breakfast buffet is quite extensive with such a variety to choose from and I'm happy that you enjoyed it. Regards, Brenda

I'm a Boston native living in Los Angeles so I really appreciate The Kendall's location; perfect for getting to & fro any destination in the city!

I am happy we had the opportunity to host you while we celebrated the new year. Yes, the few steps from the T make it very convenient for both our staff and guests to get to and from the Kendall. Alas, the holiday decor has now come down (it had to at some point, right?) but I am glad that...

My friend and I, along with another couple, participated in the Kendall Hotel's New Year's Eve dinner/overnight package. I've had delicious lunches and dinners here many times but this was my first overnight stay. Everything was 5 star, from the friendly greeting at check-in, to the incredibly comfortable room, with a bottle of celebratory champagne waiting for us to ring...

My wife and I entered the welcoming lobby dressed in tasteful firehouse associated americana, and felt instantly cozy. Our room was impeccable, and extremely spacious.
