My husband and I stayed at the Kendall Hotel during a recent business trip and I was delighted with it. It's a small hotel attached to a historic fire house--lots of Americana around, a delicious breakfast is included and it's hard to resist an afternoon sit-about in its comfortable lobby with fireplace. They didn't complain about or charge for the 20 boxes we had delivered (Christmas presents you know) and our room was very nice. One small drawback was weak water pressure in the shower but I forgive them given everything else being fantastic.

About a block from the Kendall T station, a long walk to Central Square (I tried, since the only thing missing around there was a pharmacy which I needed) and there are a number of casual restaurants nearby if you don't feel like getting out too far--a slushy Sunday meant Legal Seafood for us, right across the street.

Great place. I'll be back!

We have stayed at The Kendall some 10 times in the last 1 year - and each stay's duration ranges form 5 -8 nights .I recommend this hotel highly - friendly staff , professional housekeeping - the rooms are very well cleaned ( consistently ) - everyone is personable and you know they are happy to work at the Kendall and happy to make the guests comfortable. If you do not expect a business class type hotel eg bellhop service, doorman/ lady etc - this is a perfect choice. Eg,And if you do have a lot of luggage or shopping to cart into the hotel...simply ask the front desk they will surely help if they have the resources and if not - they will suggest options .Safe , Clean, Friendly, Convenient for Business and Leisure and Very Pretty !!!

Lovely, boutique hotel, each room is different, nice big wooden bed with quilts and loads of cushions, homy feel, quiet, bathroom is ok with a bath nothing special here but clean. Coffee machine which is good for the coffee addict. Nice breakfast, you can sit by the fire :). Recommended if you want something different from the huge Hotels in Boston and that you are visiting Cambridge. Also close to Kendall/MIT stop so you can take the tube.

Everything down to the wonderful included breakfast was way above what you normally encounter in this price category. Beautiful rooms in a former fire station turned hotel. Best hotel I have stayed in in US.

The hotel is close to Subway station just a few stops from downtown Boston. Parking at a fair price.

Whether on business or pleasure, this restored fire station is an utterly relaxing and fun place to stay. Throughout lobby, halls, and rooms the decor is like a fine inn, not like the surrounding "formula" hotels. Great location near to T stops, MIT, and restaurants. Room includes ample buffet breakfast, storage of luggage without cost, and a small restaurant if you want to eat in.
