“Exceptionally convenient to Mayo Clinic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2013

Wonderful hotel overall. Staff are very friendly and go out of their way to help. Surprisingly nice pool and hot tub. Compact but well equipped gym. Comfortable room which are spotless. The one downside is that food in the concierge lounge is very uninspiring.

This is the best location to stay if you have appointments at the clinic. You can leave your room and go via the subway floor and be to the clinic in 5 minutes. We were there in a March snowstorm and never had to go outside, from clinic appointments, shopping across the street in a mall, or eating at several downtown restaurants. It is connected via skywalks and the subway to all the main places downtown. We stayed in a "Pure" room which has all non allergenic materials, special air filters, etc. Really nice. We also had access to the concierge lounge so that is where we ate breakfast and evening snacks which was also really an added value. Service is really friendly and they go out of their way to help for special requests.

Rooms and bed clean and comfortable. The breakfast service and food is not that great. No buffet, and the service is a little spotty and not so friendly.
Location is excellent for meetings with Mayo Clinic staff and for finding restaurants and shopping. Connected via the Rochester "subway" to many other places, so bad weather is not a problem. Many wheelchairs available for those that need them.

Easy to find.

Central location near shops, restaurants, and bars, not to mention public transportation. Parking can be difficult so unload car at hotel first. (See bellhop below for more info.)

Bellhop staff was phenominal. Always smiling and more than willing to help in any way. They let us know about how/where to park and found out with our wedding attendance we had parking included already so we didn't have to pay for it. $16 - self. $19 - valet.

Check-in was good and easy during off hours.

Rooms were clean. Comfy beds, but I don't like feather pillows. Had difficulty getting room cleaned early, but if I put in a request it always got cleaned in less than an hour. Can hear everything in hallway and doors close hard even if you try to keep them quiet.

Lots of towels in room, workout, and pool areas.

Internet available, but only two computers so access was hard if people were waiting. WiFi didn't work in lobby for me on my tablet.

Lobby bar is big and staff worked hard to keep everyone satisfied during happy hour. Great appetizers here and good food/drink prices then as well.

Overall I would recommend and stay here again.

Room Tip: Upper floor away from street noise (if that is even possible).

Stayed here for a conference in March, and it was OK. I guess I was expecting more from a Marriott, but it just seemed a little run down and given that, the price was a little steep. The location is great, downtown, on the subway and skyway system with access to everything you need. For parking, trust me pay for the valet, it's worth not having to haul your luggage through the skyway system, as parking yourself isn't exactly convenient. The room service was very good actually, I highly recommend the tuna melt. Again, nice hotel, but not what I expected, and there are better options in downtown Rochester in this price range.

This hotel is by far one of the nicest hotels in very close proximty to the Mayo Clinic. The handicap accessible shower was my 84 year old Mom's nicest surprise, she truly enjoyed it. The room service was excellent and rapid. The house keepers do a wonderful job, everything was clean and fresh each day. After a day full of medical visits this hotel is a nice respite from all the waiting. The bellhop service as excellent and very friendly.
There are several great places to eat nearby and in the subway system the weather is never a problem for anyone.
This is the place I will stay for every Mayo visit. Excellent facility!!

Room Tip: Each room is a good room!
