...but not so bad if you like early 20th century Americana, or have ever traveled in Europe. This is NOT your "contemporary" chain hotel, but an old mid-town building typical of what one would have found in the 1920s, with "new world" amenities, with an attached restaurant and old-style bakery. FUN! If you want modern, boring, glass and chrome, beside-the-Interstate... More

This is an old hotel with a lot of character. Facilities were pristine clean and comfortable. Staff was friendly and helpful. Loved our room and that the location was so close to Mayo Clinic. We will return and encourage others to not overlook it just because it is an older facility.

If you're looking for an elegant place to stay in Rochester, look elsewhere. If you're content with an older, but clean and functional room in Downtown, then this is a real value. You won't find amenities like a pool and continental breakfast, but they do provide free parking (a real plus downtown!) and a nice restaurant adjoining the hotel. Also,... More
