Why We Love This Hotel

  • One block from a T transit stop, the property is rated the #2 hotel in Cambridge by TripAdvisor members
  • Rooms are clean and spacious, with accents of vintage Americana to jazz up the traditional vibe
  • Sip complimentary wine 5-6pm on weekdays, then check out the skyline from the rooftop lounge
  • Occupying a former firehouse, the hotel offers a bountiful complimentary breakfast buffet “fit for a fireman"


Explore Boston’s coveted Cambridge neighborhood while staying at The Kendall, a boutique hotel and former firehouse. A five-minute walk from MIT’s campus, the hotel seamlessly links guests to Boston with a prime location on the T’s Red Line, two stops from Harvard Square.

The Kendall serves a complimentary full breakfast buffet billed as “fit for a fireman,” with fresh daily offerings such as eggs, bacon, homemade granola, scones and more. The hotel’s Black Sheep restaurant serves up organic and locally sourced American fare three meals a day.

Business travelers benefit from the hotel's location and amenities. Guests can spy skyline views from the hotel’s Rooftop Retreat, which doubles as a 24-hour business center. Clink glasses with other hotel guests at the hosted wine hour 5-6pm Monday through Thursday, or finish up some work with the city of Boston as your backdrop. Complimentary Wi-Fi throughout the hotel keeps guests in touch.

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, The Kendall offers older, Colonial-style rooms with quilts and antique décor.
