So the truth is that if you're visiting Rochester, Minn., you're probably there for the Mayo Clinic, which means you're already a bit stressed out, right? The Doubletree is a really comfortable stay, and it's connected to the Mayo Clinic by the over- and under-ground walkway, so it couldn't be more convenient. (Plus, in the terrible winters you can still easily get your exercise steps in by walking the walkway. Get some shopping in that way, too.) So they give you a warm cookie when you get there, which isn't that big a deal except that I love cookies, and then the king-sized bed is really, REALLY comfortable. Best bed in a hotel ever. They are really conscientious about getting you what you need while you're there -- they're used to Mayo Clinic patients, so they are used to dealing with all kinds of health issues. And they're great at it. The hotel rooms are typical for this kind of a chain, but they, for some reason, do not smell like a typical chain hotel room. You know that special, weird but not totally offensive smell? It's just not there. I've stayed there twice in two years, and it always smells fresh. That's saying something. After the bed, the best part of this place is the restaurant, which is amazingly good. Pescadero, it's called. Great fish entrees. You can go there, and have a fabulous meal. All the rich patients of Mayo are eating there, too, so who knows who you're run into.
