The Kendall Hotel, Cambridge
One of best hotel experiences ever! Stay here! A+!
Absolutely LOVED everything about this hotel!!! The decor was awesome, location was just across the river from the start of Boston's Freedom Trail, 2 minute walk to pickup/drop off of Hop On/Hop Off Tour buses, had the BEST hotel breakfast I've ever had, and super friendly staff!!! I wish I could've extended my stay in Boston just to stay at The Kendall one more night! If I return to Boston, I will 100% be staying here again!!! One of my favorite hotels ever!!! Great job making an incredible first impression on my daughter and I and for making us life-long fans of your hotel!

They have good breakfast and very clean. It was a small but well kept hotel. Hotel is only few steps (as in few steps) to the train station. Only 2 train stops to Harvard square. The place have a lot of restaurant nearby like Chipotle, Legal seafood etc.
