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...

My husband and I had a lovely New Year's Eve Eve stay at the Kendall Hotel in Boston. 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! From the moment I walked in the front door, I felt home. The holiday decor was...

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. Real thought had clearly been put into the craftsmanship when they converted this from a firehouse into a hotel. Nice materials, and tastefully appropriate antique furniture selection. A wine and cheese plate was waiting for...

Thankfully this hotel was recommended by a friend! It is a quaint boutique hotel with a fun firehouse themed decor. The staff were friendly and courteous. The rooms were comfortable and clean. We stayed in a one bedroom suite with a kitchenette and were very comfortable. Very nice breakfast buffet every morning and warm cookies waiting for you after a...

Our stay could not have been better. The hotel was recently remodeled. It looks great. The attention to even the smallest detail is impressive and appreciated.
