“Residence Inn or Brentwood Inn are Great!”
Reviewed 11 August 2005

Residence Inn by Marriott is an excellent pleasant hotel- chose to stay here with in a 2 bedroom/2 bath suite during a Mayo Clinic visit. New, very clean rooms with nice grade finishes, thoughtful touches, and great staff, top to bottom. Full kitchen in our suite came equiped with everything we needed. Great free breakfast with 6 or so hot items plus the usual cereal/pastries/fruit. Free "finger food" on Monday through Thursday nights- the night my brother arrived they had Bratwurst with complimentary beer, which made him proclaim that he "loved this place!". 2 short blocks to Mayo Clinic, and is connected to the "subway". Rooms are discounted with longer stays.
A woman connected with the Mayo Clinic also recommended the Brentwood Inn & Suites one block away for a less expensive option. She said it isn't fancy, but it is very clean. The friendly front desk let me look at four room types, and I think her assessment is correct. It is also connected to the "subway".
I also checked out rooms in the Rochester Marriott Hotel and the Hilton Garden Inn, but neither were as nice as the Residence Inn by Marriott, and the Brentwood Inn beat them both if price is important.
Also, found a shuttle service called Rochester Direct which goes roundtrip from the Minneapolis airport to Rochester hotels every hour or so for about $50. The driving time is 90 minutes, and it is a lot cheaper (and about the same amount of time) than hoping on a commuter flight from Minneapolis.

My husband and I were very satisfied with our choice of this hotel where we stayed here from July, 6th to 9th 2004. Be sure to ask for the AAA rate. If you are visiting the Mayo Clinic, this is an excellent choice. We were deciding between the Kahler Econo Inn/Executive Suites (same place)
and then discovered this wonderful brand new jewel. Both are run by the same organization, are one block away from eachother and have caring, friendly staff. Residence Inn staff are trained to
go one step further to go out of their way to please you, the customer.

This hotel is also connected to the Mayo Clinic by an underground walkway (subway). The walk is about 5 min. This Residence Inn does not have an indoor pool or a restaurant. It does share privileges with Kahler next door. You can use their indoor pool or have lunch there and still bill it to your room. The buffet breakfast at the Residence Inn is excellent. You can even make your own waffles. In the evening, hamburgers and other foods are offered buffet style on a rotating basis.
You will also get a nice suite (we stayed in the studio) with a fully equipped kitchen and brand new appliances.

If you are looking for a new, clean, friendly place to stay in a suite very close to the Mayo Clinic at a reasonable price, I would highly recommend the Residence Inn due to its hospitality and location. You may write to me at HEW19@aol.com.
