Terrific place to stay! Good value for Boston.
Location, Rooms, Restaurant, Service, Rates...all excellent. We have stayed at several hotels in Cambridge and Boston but like the Kendall the best, having found it by walking by it in a previous trip.
Convenient location next to the MIT campus, near a "T" stop so you can get to downtown Boston or to Harvard in about 10 minutes. Restaurants (Legal Seafoods, etc.) and shops are all around. Plus you can walk across the MIT campus and over the river into Boston in about 15 - 20 minutes.
The rooms were new and beautifully done in a New England style with all the amenities and about the cleanest we have ever seen. The lobby and restaurant are in a real firehouse built in the 1890's and the rooms are in a new building attached to the rear, so you get both century old ambiance and modern plumbing!
The included breakfast is absolutely terrific! Different flavor pancakes or French Toast are offered every day along with eggs, crisp bacon, fresh baked goods including scones, fresh juices and excellent coffee, etc., etc.. We tried many restaurants in Boston but the best food was the dinner we had in the Kendall's little restaurant. The fresh scallops were especially nice and so was the Boston cream pie. Nice wine list too.
The front desk people were friendly and gave us maps, sightseeing directions, and restaurant recommendations. The manager "Brenda" was very nice and very helpful.
Rates were a good value for the area. We have paid a lot more for a lot less at other hotels. We enjoyed the Kendall very much in both of our visits and recommend it as an outstanding choice for a Boston hotel.
