            This hotel is well located (1 minute from Kendall/MIT t stop), very nice and historical. The stuff is nice and the breakfast (complementary) is delicious!

          • Family with children
            9.6

            We enjoyed the hotel & amenities. Traveling with 2 small children, we brought snacks & milk in a small cooler with ice packs. We had a small fridge with freezer box (great to refreeze our packs), microwave, 4-cup coffee pot & clean room. It was perfect for our needs. It was also only a few feet from the red line train into downtown Boston. We were able to leave our car & get right on the train. Very convenient!

            The night staff working when we arrived (around 12am or so) was not too helpful. The parking garage that cost $20 a night was very small & only had one entrance & exit. We had to go down a long ramp & make a sharp turn into the garage only to find no spaces available. With no room to turn around, we were forced to back out of the small opening, cut a sharp turn backwards & back up the ramp. It was very difficult! I would not advise parking down there unless you have a very compact car. We had a full size sedan & almost got stuck down there.

            Good location when visiting MIT. Free WLAN. Nice historic building.

            One-bed room quite small and noisy. The breakfast space is a bit too small.

            The decor was beautiful and thoughtful. The service was always kind and genuine. The facilities and rooms were always impecanly clean. Overall one of the best experiences at a hotel I ever had.

            The Kendall Hotel in Cambridge, ma is absolutely fantastic!! It is housed in a 19th Century Victorian Fire Station and has been decorated in that style. Both the public areas and the rooms are so tastefully decorated and interesting. I did not find it cluttered at all, and I am an "anti-clutter" person. The beds were very comfortable. My husband and I were extremely impressed with everything about this hotel: location, decor, breakfast (hot), and value.

            Low lighting in the bedroom was my only complaint.

            The hotel is convenient to the subway system and to most of the places I needed to go. It is quiet, clean and quite nice... not like your chain city hotels. And the breakfast buffet was excellent.

            unfortunately my room did not have a closet... it was o.k. for me because I was alone but it would be akward to invite someone up with clothes hanging from a wall coat rack. That is the only thing I did not care for. Everything else was fine.

            great character, nice people and hotel amenities. Didn't get to eat at the restaurant but looked cute. Close proximity to Meadhall.

            didnt love being close to the elevator

          • Family with children
            9.6

            The historic surroundings and appointments were engaging and made the hotel homelike. The Black Sheep motif for the restaurant was a clever nod to the past history again. I liked the history booklet in our room and read the whole thing. But what was truly noticeable was the staff's attitude - all seemed very proud of their hotel. I will recommend the hotel, something I usually pass on. I hope to stay with you again some day.

            I was displeased with the car service. Not the staff member who called them or who came out to dismiss a renegade cab driver, but the car service itself. The driver was not prepared to take a credit card and I had zero cash. Then he wanted to add $5 to the price the Kendall clerk had given me "for the toll he would have to pay on the trip back" I felt he was attempting to bamboozle me. Also I asked for a taxi, but the Kendall clerk told me a "car" was being arranged, and that the fee would be $30. I would liked to have known that a cab costs less. Actually, I wished we had taken the subway.

            The rate was #1, location #2. Ambience was wonderful. Cleanliness was important. Comfortable beds. Very good breakfast.

            Wine server during "rooftop happy hour" was not cordial or welcoming.

            The hotel is like a time capsule that transfers you 100 years back in time. Very beautiful design, friendly staff, nice breakfast and good location - very close to T.
