We had a great time for new years. This hotel has a lot of history and is downtown, next to several night spots to go for a cocktail. We walked around downtown and didn't have to worry about driving for new years. The room was great and roof top enclosed pool and hot tub was excellent!

This hotel has character. It is dated, but it is well taken care of. The lobby and some other areas are very pretty. The fitness area and pool is great! The water temperature was perfect and the dome over the pool is really nice. Our room could use a facelift...very 70's. The underground connection to the Mayo Clinic and all of the shops is really a benefit, especially in winter. There are many wheelchairs around for those who need it. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: My daughter and I had twin beds. This was a nice alternative, we were there a long time, and it was...

This place is in a great location. You can get to everything by tunnel or skyway from here. Right next door to Mayo Clinic if that is the nature of your stay. Great restraunts and shops very close by. The hotel is old but that adds character, the hallways look old, the rooms look brand new. The rooms were very comfortable. Staff was great. Parking was free. The pool area isn't as nice as the pictures make it out to be, but it is still pretty cool. Price was right too!

The Kahler Grand is of good value for patients going to the Mayo clinic - the hallway & subway access makes it worth the value for the stay.

Room Tip: The highest floor is the quietest (prior to the International Suites floor)

The hotel is old but with much renovation. The rooms can be small and many bathrooms have limited counter space. It is a good value and close to the Mayo Clinic. The underground connects to great restaurants and local shopping. We always stay here.

Room Tip: You get what you pay for in room selection.

In downtown Rochester, I believe that the Kahler cannot be beat. It is a grand old hotel with style and grace and the staff provides a level of service that I thought could o longer be found. Don't let the price fool you as the service and value is first rate. The standard rooms are a little dated but are clean and contain all the amenities that you will need. The restaurant and bar are both priced very affordably and everyone on staff throughout the hotel will do their best to make your stay as easy and pleasant as possible. I definitely recommend the Kahler and you will too once you have stayed with them.
