Gorgeous lobby, great staff, adorable rooms. Only stayed one night but I come to Boston every few years and I am already looking forward to my next visit. Missed a couple of things in the room — a fridge and a hook on the bathroom door for a towel — but the Kendall Hotel had enough other thoughtful details going for it that I didn't mind. Really loved the spacious bathroom with the handheld shower head. Tub even had a seat for those who can't stand too long. Breakfast eggs and muffin were both delicious, and loved the fruit options as well. All in all a very cute and cozy place in a quiet area!
