They called and cancelled room on me even though I was given a confirmation number - at 8:30 pm the night of check in! I had to try and find a room standing on the street corner - totally unacceptable.
As an old firehouse, this hotel has great character and is a nice respite from typical chain hotels. The breakfast was excellent and afternoon wine was a nice touch. This hotel provides a wonderful experience for guests and is a very good value.
Parking was very tight
Friendly, eclectic, cool
The hotel, a former firehouse, has a beautiful feel. The very opposite of a cookie cutter chain hotel. The staff were very friendly, and the room was large and comfortable.
The location, in the center of Kendall Square, is difficult to park in. The hotel does have a small underground lot (which is great) but the fit is right. Despite a warning from front desk staff, we still managed to nick the front bumper...
Such creative design!
We went for the 4th of July holiday and felt so comfortable in the small and warmly decorated hotel. Being such a crowded weekend, we never felt overwhelmed due to the hotel being near MIT and no school in session over the summer.
Great location near MIT, near the MBTA station, hi
Friendly staff, great location, Wi-Fi hotspot in every room.
It is quiet, especially on weekend stays.
We feel we did not really get the "Delux" King Room, but just a regular "King" size bedroom. So we are not really sure if we got what we had booked and paid for.
responsive staff, comfortable and quiet room.
Although close to a "t" stop, the immediate area is bleak.
clean smelling, nice decor
Great location. Spacious room.
Comfortable boutique hotel in a great location right next to the MIT Red Line Stop. Excellent breakfast. Nice 7th floor lounge. Great value!
Fantastic rooms - incredibly comfortable, large and provided everything we needed. Great location - right near the subway and 10 minutes maximum from either Harvard Square or the centre of the city. Very generous buffet breakfast and above all, a wonderfully courteous and friendly staff. This is a comfortable and extremely well run hotel. We will definitely be returning!
Our only criticism (and it is small) is that the restaurant in the hotel was a little expensive and had a rather restricted menu. However, given the huge range of other places to eat and drink in the vicinity this was not a problem.
Design of the hotel. It is very cosy to stay in.
Very slow elevator. Absence of a teapot.
The Kendall Hotel offers confortable, silent and clean rooms very close to the Kendall Subway Station.
Clean, comfortable room at a reasonable rate that included breakfast. Hotel is conveniently located near subway stop, and is across the street from Legal Sea Foods, one of the great seafood restaurants to be found anywhere.
The atmosphere was so charming and the rooms were so comfortable we absolutely loved it!
Not tanything hat we discovered on our trip there
