"Nice for a get-away."
Very comfortable and clean room. We were on the top floor and it was very quiet. There's a nice viewing/common room for an evening gathering. Front desk person not as welcoming as could be expected, but we didn't really interact much. The parking garage use for $30/day, was worth it for us, but to get into it and park is a tight fit, even for a compact car. The attached restaurant has good food for $$$. Overall a nice place.

"Weekend in Cambridge"
My husband and I were looking for a nice night away from the kids and wanted to stay in a less-than-traditional hotel. This place was really beautiful. The rooms were spacious, beautifully decorated, clean, and the breakfast in the morning was killer! We'd definitely stay here again.

"February Visit"
My wife and I regularly visit Boston to see our adult son. This visit was during another snow storm. We feel the Kendall is an oasis in the city. A great place to relax. Our room was small but the bathroom was generous. The room space was nicely organized and very comfy. We parked our car under the Hotel safely upon arrival and didn't worry about it until we left. The staff is always low key, friendly and talkative.

Overall I like the charm of the Kendall and the location. However, I have issues every time I stay. This time my shower didn't work which ultimately caused me to miss a couple of my morning meetings while I waited for it to be repaired.

"fix the TV"
Everything was fine except that it was Australian Open time so we actually wanted to use the TV. Despite the sign right with it that said don't touch the controls because it is been set up for the hotel's cable service, it wasn't set up properly. Those tennis folks had fat legs. The picture was stretched wide and didn't go to the top or bottom. They need to reinstall it. Otherwise, perfect location, very nice room. Would have liked to eat in the restaurant, but didn't have a chance (time). Great breakfast.

Stayed for 3 nights. The hotel is very nice and neat, design is authentic, the room and the bed was comfortable, the breakfast - everything was very good. The location is convenient - next to subway station and walking distance to many attractions (if you're not afraid to walk for 20-30 minutes). Would love to stay there once again if I have a chance.

"Old creaky furniture but I would stay there again"
Got stuck in a room with a large framed picture right in the way of the heater. That frame creaked constantly anytime I turned on the heater. Continued to creak loudly throughout the night, even after I turned off the heater as the frame adjusted to the ambient temperature. Some of the furniture was pretty old but everything was clean. Breakfast was pretty good. Centrally located. I would stay there again despite the creaky painting.

"Mostly excellent."
Hotel and room was excellent. Great value for money. Good, clean room and great breakfast. I would have give this hotel a straight 5 out of 5 if it wasn't for the arrogant and unprofessional guy on reception. Parking was not included in the price, so don't forget to add the $30 that the hotel charges to any quote you get. Also, this is a VERY quiet place of the town, and not many bars around. We did go for NYE, so maybe this would not have bothered us on any other night. Having said that, it is a 50m walk to the T, which is 4 stops from downtown. Overall, a great stay, apart from finding out WR had to pay for the parking from said arrogant receptionist.

"Loved the Kendall"
My husband and I were excited to stay at the Kendall after having walked past it several times in previous years. We were attracted by the price and the included breakfast. We liked it very much. It felt very much like similar hotels we have stayed at in Europe. The room was in the old part of the hotel and was a bit small but clean and comfortable. The bed linens were superior and the bathroom was well equipped. The hotel lobby and rooftop solarium were great and the breakfast was excellent, with varied, high quality choices. We hoped to try the restaurant but it was closed during our stay. The hotel location was excellent. There are several good restaurants in the immediate neighborhood and the T stop is right outside. We will certainly stay here again.

The Kendall is a quaint place with the feel of a B&B and all the amenities of a fine Hotel. The staff was warm and friendly. The decor from the moment you walk in the door to the lobby and hallways, guest rooms and even the stairway to the garage is a treat for any art lover of any medium. I look forward to staying here often as it is now my choice hotel for Cambridge visits.

"Charming Hotel!"
We were looking for a hotel reasonably accessible to Logan Airport and Boston University (where our daughter attends) via the "T". With Expedia's help, we found The Kendall Hotel--and what a great find it was! The Kendall is an absolutely adorable converted firehouse that is charming, cozy and very welcoming. Bryan, at Reception, was very friendly and very kind. He went out of his way to make sure we had everything we needed for a wonderful stay. Our room was immaculately clean, including the spacious bathroom. Breakfast was very hearty and delicious, and included a great variety of items. I especially appreciated the gourmet tea selection. The hotel is no more than a 3-minute walk to the Kendall/MIT "T" station, and from there you can get just about anywhere in and around Boston. Also, the hotel is Wi-Fi equipped and while Wi-Fi is not a deal-breaker, it certainly was a nice bonus. From now on whenever we're visiting Boston, we will definitely be staying at The Kendall Hotel.

"Love the Kendall, Has Character and Charm"
We would definitely stay here again. The location is perfect, the rooms are comfortable and have character. The front desk personnel provided excellent service when we needed it. Only complaint is that my room would not warm up, not sure why (thermostat?) and the elevators were out this weekend, which didn't affect us- we are fit and room was on the second floor, but for others on higher floors, it was probably a pain.

We had a corner room which afforded us nice views of the area. Parking was easy and just $15 compared to much more at chain hotels! We loved the breakfast which was extensive and included unusual offerings like figs and dates, plus the wonderful croissants and scones and several hot choices.

"Historic hotel close to the T"
We returned to The Kendall again this year while visiting our kids and grandchildren for Thanksgiving. I expect we will return next year. The location is great, roughly halfway between downtown Boston and Harvard Square. The Silver Line takes you to South Station from Logan Airport. There you buy a Charlie card and take the Red Line to Kendall Square. Nothing could be easier. A portion of the hotel is in an old firehouse, giving it historic charm but still providing modern creature comforts.

"Close but off the beaten path"
A hotel with a lot of character. Close to all the Boston sights but in the quieter environs of Cambridge. The parking garage is tight, but I really liked the convenience of coming and going without dealing with a valet. A surprising amount of nearby dining options and a movie theatre, due to the MIT population.

The Kendall hotel was charming and comfortable. Small details like the quilt on the bed, the antique furniture, makeup remover towel, and so much more made this place really feel like home. And the breakfast was incredible, too. The location also couldn't be more convenient, walking distance from a lot of great attractions (esp. MIT) and right next to the Kendall T stop so you can get anywhere easily. Thanks for a great stay!

Always enjoy the Kendall, rooms are clean and comfortable. Enough room to do some yoga with a little creativity. Bed was very comfortable. Free breakfast was great. Loved being able to walk less than half a block and access the T. Also, bathroom was huge. Probably because there was no closed closet, but plenty of space on hooks and hangers to store jackets and suits.

"Tiny room, big price tag, few amenities."
The room was tiny. Hard for two people to move around each other. The only redeeming factor was its location, but given its price tag and lack of amenities, there is no reason why a traveler would prefer it over the Marriott just opposite.

"A nice hotel, convenient to many places."
This is a very nice hotel, traditionally decorated and furnished, clean and comfortable. If you are looking for modern, hip and trendy, this isn't the place. The bed was very good, wifi is free and fast and the breakfast is all you could ask for. This is a great location for Kendall Sq and environs, but also a short, one mile walk to Inman Sq from the hotel. Harvard Sq is two miles up the road and Boston proper is a short walk just over the bridge. The subway entrances to the red line (one inbound and the other outbound) are extremely close. Kendall Sq is deathly quiet at night but there are some very good restaurants in the area. The downside: the water pressure in my 7th floor room was low and the shower was barely adequate some of the time. Hot water was in short supply a couple of times during my five day stay. There is one, slow elevator that you find yourself waiting for a bit too often. The wifi node in my room showed good signal but rarely worked so I connected to other rooms instead but performance was fine anyway. Once I power cycled my node and it worked blazingly fast (30-50 megabits according to my speedtest app) but then after a while it stopped working again. I had them arrange a cab to the airport but what I got was a private, meter-less cab. The fixed price of $35 was about what I paid with the metered cab I took on the way in but they should have warned me in advance. I left at 755 am and arrived at the airport at 810 with no problems.

For the price, this was a very disappointing experience. Should have staid at the Marriott down the street. You all need to lower your prices. The rooms are small and out of date. The air system needs updating, the whole hotel just feels dingy. I get that you are going for the 'historic' feel but you sure are charging modern prices. Where is that money going, exactly? I suspect not into the business.
