Centerstone Plaza Hotel Soldiers Field - Mayo Clinic Area
Ranked #22 of 50 Hotels in Rochester
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 February 2014 via mobile

I stayed there for 3 weeks while my son had surgery at the Mayo Clinic. Rooms although had dated decor they had a kitchenette complete with a dishwasher. The shuttle service was excellent. No time schedules. They came when you called. Very convenient. House keeping was also good. The only compliant I have are the prices. Alittle high even with the mayo rate. Would like to see weekly rates for mayo patients. They do offer monthly rates but not everyone needs to stay that long. They do give you 5.00 discount after 7 nights but the rooms before tax are 109.00 . Think weekly rates given a larger discount for mayo patients would really be wonderful.

Could not ask for better accomodations if you have to visit Mayo Clinic or Hospital. Transportation from the hotel to Mayo is Outstanding and very individual, they get you in the right place at the right time. Will not stay anywhere else on my return visits to Mayo. Clean rooms, caring staff and good restuarant and hot breakfast.

Staff is very helpful and friendly. Only a few blocks to Mayo Clinic with free shuttle service. They do not use a schedule for shuttle. Call and they come, same with taking you. We have stayed several time the past few years in the suite rooms, not part of the main building and love it. Wish they had pillow top beds. Quiet, and plenty of room. Twiggs Grille is also good.

Room Tip: No elevator in out buildings. Outside access.

For the price we pay when we stay at this hotel as a sports group we definitely get a great value. Twigs restaurant always accommodates our groups even on arriving back from tournaments late....excellent food!! Not the most fancy hotel we've stayed at but very clean and comfortable, I would really have to say that the restaurant is much more upscale than the hotel that it is in. Also love the fact that now in 2 blocks walking distance is the new organic superstore called Peoples Organic....love love love it!!

My wife stayed in this hotel 10 years ago when she was traveling to Mayo Clinic and she did not hesitate to choose BW Soldier's Field when we needed to come back to Mayo Clinic in 2014. It was no surprise that the hotel was as wonderful as I remember it from 10 years ago, the staff was very friendly and the shuttle service and drivers are top notch. The décor is updated and the rooms are clean and spacious.

When I checked in the gentleman that assisted me was rude. He stared me down because I wasn't wearing fancy clothes. Little did he know that I was on a road trip traveling 12 hours each day on my own so yes, I will not dress up. Any who once I got to my room it was extremely noisy and it seemed like a college frat party was going on outside. I had no sleep and for the price I paid I was not happy. The only plus side was the room itself (despite the lack of silence).
