The Kendall Hotel, Cambridge
Excellent hotel. Great location, right near a T-stop on the Red Line. The room was roomy, very clean, and the bed very comfortable. The breakfast buffet had a nice variety of items and all were delicious. The staff all were very friendly and helpful. We will definitely stay there again.

New favorite hotel in the USA
This is my new favorite hotel in the U.S. and I can't wait to stay there again. Staff was great. Little extras like apples, cookies, and slippers are awesome. I loved the robe so much, I ordered two as gifts for Christmas. The location is perfect with the train within 200yds, MIT next door and many food options. Great place to walk as well.

lovely boutique hotel, spacious room, comfortable room, good breakfast noise of a rodent in the ventwork woke up my wife at 2 AM. Effective staff response--moved her to another room. Get some traps.

Beautiful historic hotel and great location
One of our favorite places to stay in Boston. Quick check in. There is a small parking garage below the hotel, but it is tightly packed. Noticeably fast closing elevator doors; but the stairwell is also a great choice, being clean and bright. Our room was on 4th floor this time, 2 comfy queen beds and pillows, a desk area and cushy chair, TV, Fridge, coffee maker & safe. Bathroom clean and bright, Good shower water pressure & bathroom equipped with extra shelving and a Dyson hair dryer! This hotel is located adjacent to MIT campus; Google and T stop are located right across the street. Great location with plenty of things to do in Cambridge, walking distance to many restaurants, bars, cultural activities. But one of the best benefits of the Kendall Hotel is their breakfast! Delicious offerings of eggs, bacon, freshly baked goods, fruits, arugula(!), cappuccino & coffee, mueslix, freshly squeezed OJ and grapefruit juice--and more! Unlike any other hotel breakfast ever. A beautiful, historical and interesting hotel and a great place to stay while in Boston!
