The Kendall Hotel
Great base to explore Boston. Very comfortable with lovely, quirky decor. Perfect for our family to stay in one room (2 queen beds) The breakfasts were delicious - especially the raspberry/blueberry scones.

It is my second time coming here since 2009. The hotel is still just as good, and I love its homey feel -- the free cookies, the wine. It would be good though for breakfast you guys also offer kosher meats besides bacon and ham.
