We have stayed here many times and it's nice to see things are the same. It has a good location, is comfortable and the staff is always great. You're only one block from the main Mayo buildings, four blocks from the Mayo Civic Center and within 1-2 blocks of the best restaurants.

Not impressed, especially for the expensive weekday rates. Great location for Mayo Clinic visit, but that's about it. Outdated rooms, including inconvenient bathrooms (door misses hitting toilet by centimeters). Stayed on concierge level and it's not really worth it. Rooms facing pool area quite loud. This hotel needs to hit the restart button and not just rely on it's location for getting and keeping customers.

When we arrived we had to extended our stay for tested. We were told that they were book full and they could not give a room. They next day John was able to find us a room. We finished our visit with no more surprise. Marriott comes through again.

I'm always grateful to have the stay at when I need to come to Mayo Clinic. The accommodations are very nice and the staff if so welcoming and helpful. It's always my home away from home when I'm in Rochester

We recently spent 12 nights at the Mariott Mayo Clinic Area and were pleasantly surprised. After reading many Trip Advisor reviews, I wasn't sure what to expect -- reviews either were from people very happy with the stay or had nothing but complaints. We were there for appointments at Mayo Clinic, and while the room rate was expensive, the location couldn't be beat. Billed as the closest hotel to Mayo, and for us, in the Mayo and Gonda Buildings, this couldn't have been better. My husband used a wheelchair (and wheelchairs are everywhere in this area) because of all the walking, and the hotel elevator down to the subway couldn't have been eaiser. 5 minute walk from the elevator to the appointment floor at Mayo. Now about the hotel : the Front Desk staff, and their manager, Tim Brown, couldn't have been more friendly or responsive. We were greeted everytime we entered or left the hotel. We were asked how our stay was going and if everything was ok. Mr. Brown solved a reservations problem for us when we had to extend our stay. It was most appreciated! The bellmen/valet staff were most accomodating too (we also valet parked). While several of them helped us, Sean was especially accomodating. He gave some good tips on where to eat (in cluding Newt's for burgers). The rooms were refurbed in 2016 and it shows. Our room was on the Concierge level and very pleasant. The most important thing -- it was very clean! Our housekeeper was Ashley, and she was very congenial and helpful. She too offered tips on eating options. We did have a medical incident one day and needed to call 911 for emergency assistance. Ashley happened to be in the next room, and came and comforted my husband while I was on the phone with 911. Hotel Management came up to the room with the EMTs, and called down to the valet to have my car ready for me to drive to the hospital. It all happened so fast and several hotel staff were just there to help. It was awesome! As far as complaints -- I agree with most reviews, the bathroom is very small. But there's lots of hot water and great water pressure! The AC worked really well too. Room Service (Daniel took our order several times) was used a few nights, and the food was good, as ordered, and delivered in 20 minutes. Prices were typical room service prices - not cheap. Nothing normal in our stay: we had trouble connecting our Apple TV and we spoke to the Marriott Tech Support Desk on 4 different nights -- but they made it happen. We even had Maintenance up and the gentlemen replaced our room safe! Again, being in a new place for medical appointments and tests, and finding such a comforting environment was a pleasant surprise. We also learned the immedaite area around Mayo basically closes down on Saturday and Sunday. It's a good opportunity to head to Mall of America! It's necessary for us to return to Mayo, and we'll be happily returning to the Marriott Mayo Clinic Area!

Room Tip: Concierge Lounge is on the 8th floor.
