    Lonely Planet review

    Once the Engine 7 Firehouse, this city landmark is now a cool and classy all-American hotel. The 65 guest rooms exhibit a firefighter riff, alongside the requisite creature comforts. The place could use some extra help at the front desk, but at least there’s no scrimping at the breakfast table. Indeed, the on-site Black Sheep restaurant is worth visiting for lunch or dinner, too.

    Our independent authors have visited The Kendall Hotel and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Cambridge.

    Description provided by property

    Originally built in 1894, this historic Victorian-style boutique hotel is situated adjacent to the MIT Campus in Cambridge, and features a unique and cozy atmosphere, complete with many modern conveniences.

    Just outside the Kendall's front doors is the area's fantastic public transportation system. This location allows guests to easily access all the areas of the city, including downtown Boston and Harvard University, both only a short distance away.

    After a restful night of sleep in individually decorated rooms, guests at the Kendall Hotel can start the morning with a variety of breakfast buffet items, or work out at a nearby fitness center with complimentary access. A wine hour is hosted each night in the Rooftop Retreat.
