    Great stay at The Kendall Hotel. Location is perfect because it's sits right in the middle between Cambridge and Boston. The T (subway) is a 30 second walk and the hotel is cute and full of character!

  • 4.0.Fair

    Do not recommend overall

    Pros: 1. Convenient location. 2. Clean room and carpet. 3. Comfortable beds. Cons: 1. Breakfast gave me bad diarrhea. 2. Weird noise throughout night, possibly coming from the pump system nearby. 3. Parking is $45, very expensive. The hotel staff claimed parking nearby is all around this price. 4. No bottled water. Hotel claimed it was for environmental reasons. Well, there should have been substitutional plans and putting bottled water in the venting machine is not one of them.

    Lovely to Look At, But There Are Problems

    If you want on small, intimate hotel in the heart of the MIT campus, The Kendal will suit you fine. A one-time firehouse, it's well-appointed and comfortable, but be aware: The Queen room we booked through Hotels.com was much too small and eccentrically shaped for a couple. We asked the manager what else she had available, and she upgraded us, for an additional cost of $25 per night, plus tax. Our new King room was quite nice. We also discovered that, because of our third-party booking, our on-site garage would be $45 per night, plus tax, instead of $25 per night. In the end, between the room upgrade and the garage fee, we spent an extra $222 for our three-night stay. But wait--there's more: The hotel's service and friendliness was indifferent at best. For the most part, we felt we were on our own. Finally, The Kendal's eco-friendliness was non-existent: for breakfast everyday, plastic cups, forks, spoons, and plates were discarded without any effort to recycle them, at least none we could see.

    Convenient to Marathon & Cheaper than Boston

    Clean, nice hotel. Was there for the Marathon, very convenient to the T for going into Boston. As it's nestled in the area of MIT, not a real touristy area, estaurant choices around the hotel are ok, but not great compared to the Boston side or even elsewhere in Cambridge. Would definitely stay here again.

    Excellent experience wish restaurant had been open or I had known it wasn’t, she needs a restaurant in the hotel so she had to eat a boxed pizza that’s the only negative

    What a wonderful hotel this is. Everything was perfect, from checking in, to the beautiful decor, to the special wine tasting, how helpful they are with ideas on where to go eat, to the yummy breakfast. I really didn’t want to leave. It truly was the best hotel so far on our 26 day road trip by far.

    Great Hotel Experience!

    We had a great visit to the Kendall Hotel! We were in town to visit MIT with our son and picked the Kendall Hotel based on price, location, and included breakfast and it did not disappoint! The décor was beautiful, the beds were comfortable, and the breakfast was great. The biggest surprise was that the hair dryer included in every room was a Dyson! We will definitely stay here again if the opportunity arises.

    Tight quarters

    Beds were comfortable and water pressure in shower was awesome! Room had slanted ceilings so had to watch where you stepped or would hit head on the angle. Parking garage was hidden and hard to get to at first but recommend to keep car at hotel garage and walk to downtown area because parking in dowtown area sucks
