Great location close to MIT, nice informal atmosphere, good size rooms, excellent breakfast, decent customer service.
The location of the breakfast buffet, the limited capacity of the restaurant in terms of tables, the freezing airco all over the hotel (even in places where no A/C is needed)-lots of wasted energy
The Sunday breakfast buffet was outstanding! The night before was a comfortable and classy complimentary glass of wine at the bar. Bed very comfortable. The decor added a warm yet quaint feel to the hotel. Would highly recommend, and looking forward to staying again.
The parking garage is extremely tiny and room enough for maybe 15 vehicles.
The location was very good. The Kendall is a lovely and quaint place.
Everything! Starting with a warm welcome from the staff, to housing our bags while we attended the Red Sox game (as we arrived before check in time), to providing a delicious warm breakfast! The rooms were super clean and absolutely adorable! They had quite a few amenities and even a cute snack bag for the taking...free of charge! Bonus for us was the welcome glass of wine we received upon checking in. ❤ The other great thing was that The Boston Old Town Trolley stops right in front of the Hotel. This was super convenient for our day of exploration! Highly recommend! We will definitely be back!!!
We love The Kendall. It is our first choice when looking for a place in the Boston area. We stay here many times throughout the year. We recommend it to friends and family.
They were having issues with the elevator this past weekend. Other times the price can be pretty high depending on what is going on in the area.
Cambridge, MA is a unique city with a lot of history. Nowhere offers an experience as unique as Cambridge quite like The Kendall Hotel at the Engine 7 Firehouse. Every room at The Kendall is inviting and comfortable. Each one is uniquely designed with an “American folk art” theme and beautiful Victorian style furniture. Every accommodation has a bathroom with a separate shower and tub. The bedding is soft and inviting and the bath amenities provide the comforts of home. Each room and suite also has individual heating and air conditions control and windows that open. Guests can begin every morning with a breakfast buffet. For lunch and dinner, guests can dine at The Black Sheep Restaurant and Bar which serves American style dishes with a fine dining flair. The décor follows the theme of the rooms with the added touch of fireman regalia. The lighting is warm, with natural lighting that is just as inviting as the food. The Rooftop Retreat as a 24-hour business center and a Wine Hour every evening in addition to a beautiful view of the Cambridge skyline. This hotel is perfect for those who want to hit the town and explore all the Cambridge and Boston have to offer. Located near great public transport and beautiful scenery for a stroll, guests will be able to take in the scholarly history of Cambridge due to its proximity to both MIT as well as Harvard.
