Charming hotel. Lovely room, very quiet and very comfortable. Enjoyed the little guest surprise ( little bag of goodies) when we returned after a full day out and about. Staff were very attentive and helpful.

The hotel is in a really good location if you want to go to MIT for business. That is the only good thing about this hotel based on my experience. The hotel room itself was not good. You cannot control the room temperature from the thermostat, so it was so hot one night. Besides, the room was old and it was not as impressive as what you expect after they charged over 400 dollars a night

The Kendall is a beautiful hotel. The rooms are large, tastefully decorated, with thoughtful touches like robes, cookies, bottled water, even fresh apples. The beds are very comfortable. My family enjoyed the breakfast buffet and the ambiance of the living room. I highly recommend The Kendall and will stay again during my next trip to Boston.

The only thing that was challenging is that the first night of our stay there was something wrong with the heat and it was unbearably hot in our room. However, they did fix it the next day so they were very responsive.
