Fodor's Review

You might think a place in such a high-tech neighborhood would be all stainless steel and chrome; think again: the Kendall Hotel is homey and ultrafriendly, bright-hue and lively—and it's convenient, with a T stop just one block away. Based in the former Engine House 7 fire station, it is stuffed with related memorabilia. Full of collectibles, an antique Chinese checkerboard, a ceramic Dalmatian, and a whimsical grandfather clock contribute to the mishmash decor. Rooms are done up in Easter-egg hues, and a seven-story addition includes an enclosed rooftop lounge, eight deluxe rooms, and four suites with kitchens perfect for families. On Monday through Thursday evenings the hotel hosts a wine hour on its seventh floor. Bonus for workout buffs: free guest passes to a nearby gym, Fitcorp.
