We loved it here! Wonderful staff form the greeting to departure. Very clean and a wonderful breakfast. The rooms were clean and very charming with bottled water for your stay along with tea and coffee.They also provided a wine time as well for the guests. I would highly recommend this hotel! I think there was one bad thing to say...

For great rate and friendly service in the heart of Boston this hotel is a great choice. Parking available onsite.Very quiet but chose a high level room - only 5 floors. No exercise facilities at the hotel but can access fitness center nearby

Stayed here for 2 days last November with daughter. Close to the Kendall Square T and located in a restored /renovated firehouse. Decor reflects its early beginnings and is very cozy immediately as you walk in. There's a quaint area in which to sit and relax near the fireplace. To the right of entryway is the restaurant, which doubles as...

Beautiful restoration of 19th century firehouse. Nicely individually appointed rooms. Eclectic but nice decor. Breakfast buffet was very tasty! Right across the street from MIT coop and Google. I didn't try the restaurant but the food smelled great.

This hotel is nicely designed around the theme of the building being a former fire hall. The breakfast was good, and the staff were friendly. The bed was comfortable and the room clean and quiet. One problem I had was the heating/cooling system has a knob that just says "warmer/cooler" and I found it very difficult to find a temperature...

Although our Boston stay was for a brief weekend, we thoroughly enjoyed our evening stay at the Kendall Hotel. This boutique gem, which was once "home" of a small town firehouse and its crew, was very clean, comfortable and welcoming. We arrived quite early for our afternoon check in and were greeted by a very friendly attendant who provided us...

My wife and I stayed here during the Boston Marathon and we were very impressed with the hotel quality, comfort, decor and location. The general manager, Brenda Anderson and her staff were all very polite and helpful. Lots of smiling faces intent on providing a happy and memorable experience for their visitors. We would definitely stay at this quaint hotel...

I really loved my short (overnight) stay at this charming hotel. I checked in earlier than they expected but they were quite willing to accommodate me, while I enjoyed the terrific hotel buffet, included with the room. The room was really lovely and I was so pleased to see that it didn't look like ANY other hotel room that I'd...

My husband and I stayed last night at the Kendall Hotel. It was a wonderful experience. First of all, we were greeted by a very helpful person at the desk, Carla. She was extremely sweet and very friendly. When we couldn't find parking a staff person moved her car so that we could have her spot. The hotel itself is...
