My husband recently had heart surgery at St. Mary's Hospital, and I booked a room at Aspen Select because of its convenient location to the hospital. During the course of the week I stayed in the hotel, I discovered that convenience was only one of the highlights of Aspen Select. My room was very comfortable....lots of great pillows on the...

Great location!! The hotel front door is by the crosswalk to St. Mary's hospital. Very convenient if you or a loved one has to have surgery. Our suite had a recliner, sofa, microwave, frig & coffeemaker. Beds are very comfortable! Breakfast was simple, but good. Coffee available all day long and cookies at 6pm! Free shuttle to the Mayo Clinic!!

I found the Aspens Select comfortable, clean and convenient. St. Mary's is right across the street and I was able to come and go without driving while my spouse was hospitalized. We were greeted kindly the minute we arrived and I found the staff responsive and friendly. I will likely schedule our next stay in Rochester at Aspen Select.

Having been to the downtown Mayo before I was hesitant to book a hotel near St. Mary's location. I chose Aspen Select due to the location and price. I can say all went well. Parking underground is a bit tough but there's ample parking outside. The breakfast is simple but great if you're on the run. The rooms a great!... More

Clean, well-appointed hotel and furnishings, not trying to be a luxury site but completely comfortable and pleasing. They are right across the street from the main entrance to St. Marys hospital, the closest hotel to that institution. Friendly and helpful staff. They are our go-to place if we return to Rochester.

Alright so the summary for people who don't want to read through my rant: They lost my reservation, did not apologize once, and did not offer to do anything to fix it. Long version: I booked my stay with Aspen Select about a month ago on Hotels.com, when we arrived at Aspen Select around 5PM on Wednesday night, the front... More

This place was very handy for family given a brief hospital stay at St. Mary's which is directly across the street. They offer a 24 hr. coffee bar and cookies from 6-8pm in the lobby. We had a room on third floor that had loud water pipes behind the wall, so much so that we requested at 11:15pm to switch... More

The newly remodeled Fiksdale is excellent- now called the Aspen Select. Rooms are spacious and well appointed. Three rooms from the original layout have been converted to breakfast room and gym. Free WiFi is included. I walked to the downtown civic center for the meeting- during a downpour I hopped on the Mayo employee shuttle to St Mary's. I believe... More
