Location, great breakfast, very comfortable bed & pillows!! Friendly staff- Really enjoyed the complimentary glass of wine each evening.
Had to wait 90 minutes after checkin time (3 pm) before our room was cleaned and ready. Had requested early checkin prior to arrival as we arrived at 1:30. We had been up since 3am and were ready to relax in our room.
It’s beautiful and unique. The staff is very friendly and the breakfast was amazing. It was nice and quiet too! We will definitely be back!
We truly liked everything!
The staff, the restaurant, the breakfast, the room was very charming. Great decorations following the firehouse theme.
Location right in between Harvard Uni and MIT. Easy access from airport and to Boston city centre.
Small bar/restaurant area Rooftop seating area was closed (being renovated). But this one of the reasons why we choose this hotel. Some service was really good, other was mediocre.
The breakfast was wonderful. Love all the decorating in the hotel. The staff was friendly, helpful, and very nice. Would definitely return. Also enjoyed the wine in the evening.
Bathroom a little small and hard to navigate with two people.
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.
