Nice hotel in Cambridge

Posted May 4, 2015
The hotel was charming and comfortable with a very good breakfast buffet. The one convenience missing from our room was a place to hang clothing aside from the coatrack. Being in an old converted building has some limitations.

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.
