    Spectacular hotel in Beantown.

    The Kendall is one beautiful hotel-most beautifully decorated in Firehouse motif. Truly spectacular with daily wine served (gratis) and excellent breakfast buffet. MBTA is 30 seconds away to anywhere in Boston. This place is a 10!

    Overall very pleased with the stay. Check-in was quick and friendly. The common spaces are tastefully done, bright and cheery. The room as well was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was pretty good for complimentary buffet. Parking was not well-marked and took some effort to find. It’s a basement lot but down a narrow ramp that turns sharply at bottom. But nice elevator from parking straight up into lobby. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

    Top Notch

    Our stay was amazing. The wife and i flew in from Texas doing a road trip. Staying in 9 different hotels this trip alone. Hands down the best. The emoyees were amazing. They treated each customer as if we were a celebrity. They went above and beyond for us. The hotel was very well put together. The bed was the most comfortable out of all the hotels. Whoever decorated cared alot and it shows very comfortable vibe and atmosphere. Highly satisfied. Loved saff and hotem.

    Cute hotel

    We loved the hotel. Nice to have breakfast again. We were given passes to the workout facility and when we walked over there, it was closed. That was unfortunate!

    Happily surprised 😲

    The hotel is delightful with historically themed decorations, & warm, comfortable reception plus dining areas. I was happily surprised at the size of the room as it was much larger than I expected with it being a boutique hotel. All the staff were friendly, polite, & extremely helpful on all fronts. We would absolutely stay there again & highly recommend The Kendall to friends, family & everyone visiting Cambridge, MIT, & Kendall Square area; it’s convenient for app-drop offs, very close to the T transportation, & easy walking to food, cafes & the like. An A+ experience for us.
