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.
