Great location in Cambridge

Posted Apr 9, 2015
Pros: Location, staff, room, breakfast.
Location: You can get anywhere from here, so close to the T at Kendall/MIT.
We had a wonderful visit to Boston/Cambridge based at the Kendall. What a great boutique hotel! Easy to get around, with the Kendall/MIT T stop just 1/2 block away. Very friendly staff, nice room and terrific breakfast buffet included. Recommended.

A small hotel with big rooms near Kendall Square

Posted Apr 6, 2015
Pros: The spacious, well outfitted room (microwave, refrigerator, coffee maker, wired & wireless internet access). A hot & cold breakfast buffet (Bacon!).
Cons: I could do without the throw pillows on the bed. It can't be improved, but the view out my window was the back of an MIT lab building.
Location: The hotel is next to the MIT campus and the Kendall/MIT subway station. Nearby are book stores, shops & eateries catering to students & tech workers.
Registration was quick and easy. The decor was a pleasant mix of Americana and firefighting memorabilia reflecting the building's origins as a Cambridge firehouse. My room was larger than I expected, clean, quiet and well appointed. It had a queen-size bed, a seating area by the window with a couch & coffee table, a work desk with wired internet access and a spacious bathroom. Having a refrigerator and microwave oven was a nice touch. The area around the hotel is busy during the day filled with students, office workers, businessmen and technology specialists working, studying or visiting at MIT or one of many surrounding start-up companies. At night, it quiets down and is a good place to relax at the end of the day.

Nice Hotel, no frills, but cute and cozy.

Posted Apr 6, 2015
Pros: Cozy, cute. Service staff is super helpful and nice.
Cons: Included breakfast (if your rate includes it) is a bit too simple (a la Hampton Inn). It could use a bit spiffing up.
Location: Legal Sea Foods is right across the street and MIT is around the corner. The T stop is literally across the street and can walk (in a nice day) to BOS
This is really good place to stay in Cambridge. My only not-so-positive comment would be about the garage: it is tight and accommodates only a few cars. Even then, you can always park across the street in a city garage for a few bucks. All and all a very nice alternative in Cambridge, specially if visiting MIT for kids or business reasons.

College visits

Posted Apr 5, 2015
Pros: The hotel was splendid in all aspects! The observatory on the roof provided an incredible view of the city.
Cons: The hotel's heating system was quite robust - needed a little 'coolness' at night which was helped by the cool breeze at night...
Location: Near everything - MIT, Harvard, Boston, all historical sites. Superb restaurant on site.
Great hotel. The staff were very accomodating, the hotel was clean, the decor had a lot character, the breakfast was outstanding, and it is easy to get to with the t-stop just down the street.

A great stay, centrally located

Posted Mar 26, 2015
Pros: Quiet, comfortable, very clean and reasonably priced.
Cons: The Kendall Hotel is not alone in needing a significant upgrade to their television system - it's beyond time to go HD.
Location: Location in tech center of Kendall Square/MIT is very interesting but you will have to travel for a wider offering of restaurants and entertainment.
A warm and welcoming property with easy access to transportation around the beautiful city of Boston. It's location in a refurbished Firehouse adds an extra helping of the history to your visit of one of America's oldest cities.
