This venue is great for live stage plays. It's handy, via the skyways, to hotels in the downtown area. We saw Les Mis and had seats close to the stage. Perfect! Rochester is a great city and Mayo Civic Center offers wonderful entertainment.

Attended a Flea market here on Sunday. Center was very clean, including the bathrooms. Staff at the concession stand was very friendly The flea market was well set up and organized. Not sure if that was the Center staff or the organizers of the flea market Will return

Doctors and Nurses are above excellent. They all treat each patient with great care and concern. Nicest thing about all of them they do not guess and they all take the time to make sure everyone understands what is being said-treatment plan-and they call you after hours with results usually same day if possible

The seats were very comfortable, which I was thankful for as we were there fairly early ... so we were there for a total of3 hours and 15 min. Bathrooms were pretty clean. It was a little bit of an older building, but they are remodeling with a huge new addition in another section of the center, and I imagine... More

Not sure where you would park. Saw a couple lots on the walk there from my hotel - you would have to walk 2-3 blocks from those. We were in the North Lobby conference hall; For our 520 predominantly-male audience, there were only 3 toilet stalls, and I had too keep asking the conference personnel to open up for back-up,...

Visited the Mayo for the first time for the Watchtower convention. I found it to be an Excellent facility, with easy parking in semi attached garage, cool and comfortable climate control, comfortable seating and excellent sound in the large arena. The facility is currently undergoing renovations but this was a very minor inconvenience.

Have been going to Mayo Civic Center for WT Conventions, and they are really doing a nice job updating the area. I love the new lobby area and the refreshment stand. Nice touch because we tend to stay inside and now we get the nice coffee and tea there too. Thank You

We were here recently to see a concert. I thought the venue was nice and cozy. The auditorium seated about 3,00 people and was just the right size for who we were seeing. The center was under construction but that did not deter from the experience. I liked being able to go from skyway to skyway to get back and... More
