My wife and I stayed at the Courtyard (which is the only Courtyard in Rochester) in order to see doctors at the Mayo Clinic's Generose Building which houses the Dept.of Psychology and Psychiatry. St. Mary's Hospital and the Generose Building are directly across the street from the hospital. Some guests are visiting the Mayo Clinic's main campus which is only about one mile away. Parking is only $4 per day in the Courtyard's garage and there is an entrance to the garage on the second floor, which is handy in case of rain or snow. On checking in, one has to park in the driveway (easily seen and entered from the street) and get the room cardkey, which is used to enter the garage.
The Courtyard was completely remodeled recently. The rooms feature comfortable beds, flat screen TVs, and a small refrigerator and microwave. Bathrooms are modern with a tub-shower.
The restaurant at the Courtyard serves three meals a day. Breakfast is ordered at the Starbucks Counter in the restaurant and includes choices of oatmeal, eggs, bacon, fresh fruit, etc. This is not a buffet but the food is good (not a creative gourmet event) and served quickly and at reasonable prices. If you have the breakfast included hotel rate, you can have as much as you want as long as you order it all at your initial visit to the counter.
Dinner has many choices of soup, sandwiches, salads, and entrees, along with wine and beer, and deserts including a very good bread pudding. Service was excellent.
The check-in was quick and efficient and housekeeping kept the rooms and hallways, etc. very clean, Although I could hear the air-conditioning cycle on and off, I did not find it extremely loud. We asked for a quiet room and got a room at the end of a hallway at the back of the hotel where there was no noise from the street.
We did not try the restaurants outside the Courtyard. Cafe Presto which features a wide menu and a "healthy food" restaurant called Tonic are very close to the Courtyard as is the "Canadian Honker"., as is McDonalds. Rochester is a small town and the better restaurants are downtown near the main Mayo Clinic. There are also chain restaurants at the exits of Highway 52 which is on the side of town that the Courtyard is on.
There are three computers in the lobby, all connected to printers and some other office supplies. Use of the internet and printing is free.
