The Deluxe King Room at the Kendall Hotel
Hotel is 100% non smoking, but it’s on a Main Street so I’m sure you could go out to the sidewalk/driveway area to smoke as long as it’s away from the front area.

Same answer as others. You can call hotel and ask for early check in but they do have a room off the lobby where you can check your luggage if room is not ready. Nice restrooms just off lobby to use to freshen up.

The Kendall Hotel has 77 Guest Rooms. We have the original firehouse section within the front of the hotel, then the remainder of rooms within the tower.

"All the rooms are exceptional with every thing you could ask for."
"Choose a room on a higher floor away from street noise."
"We could slightly hear the subway when on the 2nd floor. If you were a very light sleeper you could ask for a room on a higher floor."
"Rooms to the rear of the hotel may be quieter as they are at the back, but we never noticed any road traffic during our stay."
"I always like rooms on upper floors looking out to street; no exception here."
US$185 - US$539 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
