In 2000, local artist Charlotte Forsythe and her architect husband, Gerald Fandetti, renovated and converted the 1895 Victorian Engine 7 Firehouse in Kendall Square into the Kendall Hotel. One of the only Cambridge hotels chosen to join the Historic Hotels of America, this hotel has maintained its historic architecture and ambiance while claiming its place among Boston’s finer hotels.
This hotel is also listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and with its location just a short walk away from the Kendall/MIT Red Line stop, allows easy access to both Boston and the rest of Cambridge.
The Kendall Hotel also offers various guest rooms, including 4 one-bedroom suites. The rooms are styled with a mix of antique and modern furniture, blending the hotel’s past with its present.
While guests will find beautiful antique furnishings throughout the hotel, they can also enjoy modern amenities such as complimentary high-speed internet.
Guests in search of dining should visit the Kendall Hotel’s Black Sheep Restaurant & Bar. Located in the lobby of the hotel, this restaurant’s name references its firehouse past, when the Engine 7 firemen considered themselves the “black sheep” of the Cambridge Fire Department.
Diners at the Black Sheep Restaurant & Bar can expect a wide array of freshly prepared offerings made from organically and locally grown ingredients. This restaurant offers hotel diners breakfast, lunch and dinner throughout the week.
From the beloved art pieces in the lobby to the family-run style of the hotel, a stay here guarantees a unique Cambridge hotel experience. And with its proximity to Boston, the Kendall Hotel is the perfect place to stay during your Cambridge/Boston visit.
