Staybridge Suites Rochester University
Ranked #12 of 29 Hotels in Rochester
Reviewed 7 June 2013

This a great hotel, one of the best we have ever stayed in. I am 80+ so I have stayed in many. It was very clean and comfortable. We had a 2 bedroom suite with a living room & kitchen between. Three large flat screen TV's - LG a top brand. Kitchen had a small full size fridge, microwave, electric stove, toaster, coffee maker, and even a dishwasher. Dishes and utensils included, even stemmed wine glasses. Beds and bathrooms were very clean and comfortable. Hot breakfast included eggs, sausage or bacon, potatoes, and make your own waffles, besides toast, bagels, fruit, juice, and "Wolfgang Puck" coffee. They also had china coffee mugs and plates, glass glasses, and real silverware. no paper or plastic. The indoor pool and hot tub was great with a window wall overlooking the river.
Would we stay there again? Definitely! All this for less than $200 {AAA rate}. A great bargain!

I have stayed here twice within a month period, both times filling the rooms. (I got the suites with 2 double beds, king bed and sofabed). We were still very comfortable having a "full house". We were not tripping over each other by any means. There was nothing lacking in the rooms.
The property itself is gorgeous! We took full advantage of the pool and the patio with the gas fire pit. The patio and pool overlook the Genesee River and the University of Rochester campus which is pretty by day, beautiful at night.
We were most recently there for the "Stroll for Strong", a fundraising event for the Golisano's Children's Hospital at Strong Memorial Hospital which is within a mile of the hotel. This hotel was the perfect location and the late checkout allowed us to have our 5K runners go back for a shower and head back to the Stroll (walk) and festivities afterwards. Other team members also stayed at the hotel and were also very happy with the experience. We all had a great time the night before, the kids swimming in the pool and then us all gathering around the fire pit. It was a nice, relaxing time!
I cannot say enough good things about Staybridge Suites-Rochester University.
I will go back here again and again.

Staybridge doesn't disappoint - the room are large, beds comfy and good wifi connection. Very pretty location near the university and by a river - walking in the area is lovely. Breakfast is included and was reasonable. Staff are friendly and helpful. Overall, as usual, an excellent stay.

The hotel is located by a beautiful river, walking distance form the University campus. Nice room with all the practicalities of a Staybridge, a kitchen, fridge, washing machine dowstairs. Breakfast is included and is basic but I had worse in similar hotels. My room had a strange smell, like it was not ventilated for a long time. As I stayed for only one night I did not bother to complain. I had bought items via the internet and called the hotel to tell them about this. When I arrived all boxes were waiting for me. Nice.
The elevator is terribly slow, so you'd better stay in a low floor...
The hotel offers a shuttle but the schedule is very restricted.

I stayed at the Staybridge suites in Rochester for a couple of nights last week. The hotel is about a 5-10 minute drive from the airport, and is placed right next to a river. I was lucky enough to get a river-facing room, which provided a wonderful ambiance, with sounds of the water, ducks, etc. The hotel itself isn't fancy, but the rooms are clean, and the bathroom, etc., are pretty typical for hotels of this class. High-speed internet with good connection speeds and complimentary breakfast were provided.

Overall, an excellent hotel, and a really great choice both for staying in Rochester, and even to transit from/to the airport. An excellent value, since the prices are very reasonable, and in fact lower than some of the "airport" hotels.

Stayed at the Staybridge Suites Rochester University for 2 days in early may. Room was comfortable as usual with staybridge properties. The hotel is situated right alongside the river that runs through town which makes for a nice view. There is also a long jogging path that runs along the river all the way into downtown which was pretty cool. It also runs right next to the university so you're able to catch a glimpse of college girls sunbathing, which adds a little motivation to your run. I didn't try the breakfasts and dinner, but there seem to be a good assortment based on the hotel calendar. Friendly staff as well. Will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a river view

Since a number of reviewers have said the hotel has a free airport shuttle, I thought it might be useful to point out that this shuttle does not run between 10:30 AM and 5:00 PM (so I had to take a taxi from the airport). It doesn’t run weekends either, so I couldn’t use it to get back to the airport. So the free shuttle was useless to me. (Cab fare was $11 plus tip.)

The breakfast was fine, nothing special, paper plates, limp bacon. But pretty good coffee!

The view of the river is very nice. There is a terrace that overlooks the river, with steps down to the walk.
