The hotel is clean and the staff were very nice; however for the price you pay you get nothing. Small rooms, tiny tiny bathrooms. The bar closed at 9pm. No snack options...not even a vending machine for chips. Terrible. Be prepared to order out.

Hotel is very convenient to Mayo Clinic. Wheel chair was provided for my 92 year old mother and clinic can be accessed by a tunnel. Grand Grill had good food and service so we did not have to leave the building to eat, and many restaurants and shops close by if you wanted to go out. Paid for executive suite...

We stayed for 3 days for a convention. The room was dirty upon arrival with a layer of dust and towels left over from previous guests. Bathroom lights were burned out, "clean" linens were stained and grey from overuse, the room looks as if it has not been renovated in over 30 years with fixtures rusting in the bathroom. I...

Old, smelly, poor service, and way overpriced. The rooms are tiny and smell awful. Our room was not cleaned once during the stay and the hotel blamed it on a blizzard, yet two days later there was still not enough staff to clean it. The restaurants didn't have enough staff or food to accommodate us. I will never stay here...

What a disappointment!!!! Never, ever would I stay in this dump again!!!! It was poor service, the room was not what was described on the internet where we booked. Had I known what we were getting I would have booked at the Double Tree or Hilton Garden Inn where we usually stay while traveling.

This is the place to stay if you are doing business in Rochester or going to the Mayo clinic. Centrally located: easy access to subway walk and sky walk by elevator which connects you to all the nearby restaurants, shops, etc and most of the Mayo clinic. The staff is always friendly and accomodating. We have been there twice and...

My daughter and I stayed for 3 nights for a convention. I reserved a standard king room at a rate of 149.00 per night average. We had about 50 other people staying with us in the hotel. I was not pleased at all with the accommodations. Everything was extremely old and worn. Bed had no duvet, just a thin fleece...

The hotel is a great place to stay, the room was big enough for the price and the staff was wonderful. It´s across from the Mayo clinic, so it is convenient for the medical appointments. The pool has an awesome view and the fitness center is 24/7
