Melanie at the front desk was extremely accommodating and made sure I was happy with my rooms and locations. There was a miscommunication with my request for adjoining rooms, but Melanie fixed it within minutes of my concerns and went above and beyond to make sure I was happy!

Had a great stay over the weekend. Michelle at the front desk was very personable and professional. Also pleasant. The location was in Downtown Rochester, we were going to an event at the Blue Cross arena, and this hotel was so close.The only thing that I was disappointed was

We were in Rochester for a lacrosse game and we looked at other hotels and decided on this one. It was definitely the right one. We got a "lake view" room, it's a river view. The free breakfast was amazing. It's a buffet style and it's the first hotel that I've ever stayed at

If I were to stay again I would call and find out if something is going on across the street at the convention center. The hotel was Over Run with kids and loud teens who were running through the halls all night. You think that they would assign them to one flow instead of

Dear valued guest, Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your feedback. I am sorry to hear you were disappointed to find our hotel fully booked with a group of youth. Unfortunately while we would have loved to assign the youth to a few single floors, we were sold out with this particular group, which is why they were throughout the entire hotel. I am sorry for the inconveniences you experienced as a result of this. We strive to provide every guest with a comfortable and relaxing stay, and while many guests find our sleep number beds to be extremely comfortable, I very sorry this was not what you experienced. We hope to see you again the next time you find yourself in Rochester, as I am sure your next stay will be better than your last. Warm wishes, Breanna Young, Operations Manager

The hotel sits along the river.
Is there a hot tub?
I don't recall seeing one.

Does the underground fit and f150 truck?
Hi Steve, we also have an F150, and there was not enough clearance. The problem is the exposed pipes and low hanging plumbing lines etc. There are a few spots out front for trucks, otherwise you need to find your own parking. You can also see if the hotel will validate your parking pass and go to the Hyatt up the street. But their parking is only slightly better. Hope that helps.
