Very Good8.0
Stayed at the Kendall for a long weekend. Very quiet, clean and comfortable. The only part that was a little disappointing was there was no air conditioning because they had not changed the heat to air yet. We opened the window and they had a good ceiling fan but it was still a little to warm at night. There is a subway enterence next to it and an easy walk to many tourist sites. The breakfast is fantastic. Overall I enjoyed it very much and without hesitation stay there again.

Excellent hotel and enjoyable stay!
The hotel is so interesting with all of its artifacts. I liked that it was not your standard franchise hotel. The hotel was very clean and well maintained. The service was excellent. Staff was friendly. The breakfast buffet is excellent. I enjoyed the wine happy hour as well. My room was spacious for a queen size bed including a sofa and desk. Bathroom was so clean. I loved the location. I travel to Boston frequently and this has been the best hotel stay so far for me. If I can I will only stay at Kendall Hotel for all of my future trips to Boston.

Unique historical building at the center of Kendall Square. Public transportation (Boston 'T") is just steps away. Friendly staff, along with nice accommodations and complimentary breakfast are topped up with apples and fresh cookies at the reception all day long. I will definitely come back!

Great escape from the kids for a night
The service and hospitality can't be beat. This hotel doesn't have all of the amenities of the larger hotels, but the style and charm make up for it. We planned to stop by the bar for a drink before heading out on the town and ended up never leaving. We had a great night at the hotel and then woke up to a great breakfast. We would recommend this hotel for a couples/ romantic night out.
