Staybridge Suites Rochester University
Ranked #12 of 29 Hotels in Rochester
Reviewed 14 October 2016 via mobile

Our Family went to see our son compete in the Head of the Genesee Rowing Regatta.

This hotel is closest to the finish line but beyond that, the staff are funny, fully engaging and professional every step of the way. We had a river view room and it was late when we checked in and the woman at the front desk confirmed we had one city view room and one "ocean view room" - such clever humour! Pool is great and indoors with a lovely view of the river. Weekend buffet is spectacular with an omelette station and the weekdays buffet is very good but no omelette station. The hotel is very clean, happy staff there to assist with any need you may have. Well done Staybridge and thanks for exceeding my expectations! You kept your promise!

I have spent 14 days (September 2016) in this hotel due to my research/business trip. My room was located in the 4th floor with beautiful view on the river. It was nice to hear frogs and different bird kinds during breakfast from the outside terrace. Room was very nice, large and clean. Perfect addition is complimentary laundry at the basement- detergent can be bought in "Pantry" on reception desk. Breakfasts are good and from Monday to Wednesday they have the "Social" - event aimed to establish communication among hotel guests, accompanied by food and drink. Personel was kind and helpful. Only negative thing was non-functional pool and some quite noisy device above my bathroom (probably ventilation system). But still, this would be my choice again.

We spent the Meliora weekend at Rochester, and the Staybridge was an excellent place to stay. This isn't the Four Seasons, so if you're going expecting luxury or rooms service you'll be disappointed. But the rooms were clean, the furnishings certainly adequate, the bed comfortable and the river view lovely. The bathroom layout was odd, with the sink next to the bed, but we could live with that.The location is perfect for those visiting the University of Rochester; if you're purpose is to visit the city itself perhaps there are better options in the downtown area with more amenities. If you're going to visit your child at college, this is an excellent option. What stood out was the friendliness and helpfulness of every single staff member we met, especially those at the front desk who unfailingly greeted us with a welcome and a smile no matter what time of day.

Great location when stayed here for 5 nights for graduation at Univ of Rochester. We had an excellent time and enjoyed the river views. This is really the best place to stay in town. We had a nice large suite with a full kitchen. There is a very nice fire pit sitting area for drinks and enjoying the views. You can easily walk to the campus from your room. We drove for graduation as it was a long walk in high heels.

This hotel is nice and has a lot of positives but the pool is closed indefinitely for repairs. No one told me that when I made my reservation. When I got there and found out the pool is closed our family was very upset as that is what we were looking forward to. The front desk told me they don't know when the pool will reopen . So if you intend to use the pool call the hotel first before making a reservation. Other than that, rooms are nice and clean and breakfast is good and staff is nice.
