The Kendall Hotel is the gem of hotels in the Boston area. Rooms are spacious, quiet and very clean - the hotel is obviously taking additional steps to ensure the well being of their guests. The continental breakfast offers a lot more than what we anticipated. This will be our go to hotel when visiting our son at Northeastern - great location and easy access to all parts of Boston.

I wish I found this gem, when I first started my frequent travels to the Boston/MIT area. The rooms are lovely (in love with the decor) and very clean!!! It's also very quiet and great location. The staff are extremely friendly and attentive, and when I visit it feels like home. I can't wait until my next visit in May. My only hesitation with reviewing is that I it will be totally booked up when I try to go again :). Wonderful place. 5 stars.

The entire staff and experience at the Kendall Hotel is what one hopes for at a big 'luxury' brand hotel. They do everything they can to accommodate your wishes from clean and quiet rooms (they have an extra sound deadening window in all rooms), a simple yet wonderful breakfast, coffee (crucial) and help at every turn. The rooms are always in great shape and when something isn't right, you just need to text their service and voila! Here they come to make something to your liking. Parking is right underneath the hotel and access to MIT is right next door and Harvard a short drive. Kendall Square and all its innovation is right outside your door. Plenty of food and drink options both at the hotel and nearby. The rates are fantastic for this area and I can't really think of a downside. I used to stay at the Marriott across the way but the local feel of this hotel is really incredible while not sacrificing quality. It's a boutique hotel with the amenities and service of a big chain. And you'll never hear them tell you 'it's not something we have' it's always - we'll see what we can do and then ta-da they deliver. Brenda runs a great place and I will only use this hotel going forward.

I have stayed at this hotel nearly a dozen times over the past year. This is a perfect location for anyone visiting the companies around Cambridge. It is a lovely quiet, clean and very well run hotel. The service is terrific and very attentive to all your needs. Onsite parking is available and it is in an ideal spot for anyone visiting downtown Boston with the MBTA/T less than a block away and just a few stops from downtown highly recommend this beautiful hotel.

They’ve done such a great job with the old fire house very nostalgic for me. The staff especially Mark could not have been more gracious even with his Dorchester accent . The rooms or a nice size with all the amenities you would like. Even with Covid Mark was able to get us an evening glass wine. The location is perfect a short walk to the red line and the MIT coupe is around the corner. Lots of great restaurants to choose from.
