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-hued 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 historic hues, and a seven-story addition includes an enclosed rooftop lounge, eight deluxe rooms, and four suites with kitchens perfect for families and visiting professors from neighboring MIT. 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.
