We have stayed here before because of the hotel's proximity to the Mayo Clinic, shops, and restaurants. The good stuff first: our room was big and comfortable, though plainly furnished. The housekeepers were excellent, and kept our room clean and neat; and the corridor was quiet. The elevators were pretty prompt. The restaurant food was acceptable and the portions, ample.... More

If you are visiting Mayo in Rochester and convenience is your highest priority then this is a good choice. The rooms are small but well appointed. I have heard that there are some rooms recently remodeled so I asked from one when I made the reservation. Our room had heavy stains on the carpet and the bath fixtures were antiquated.... More

The bathrooms show the age of this hotel. But it is a "grand" place to stay. The ambience reminds me of the great hotels of yesteryear. I have stayed here frequently. Except for one occasion, I have always found the rooms well cleaned, The beds in excellent condition, plenty of pillows, excellent room size, etc.

I have stayed here at least 20 times over the years. I have used other hotels but came back.The Mayo rates are wonderful and they will attempt to accommodate your every need. The efficient, professional staff make you very welcome.

I was in room 752. The bedding seemed new, & the carpeting relatively new. The bathroom was clean. And, like other people have mentioned, at 6:30 a.m. when I took a shower, there was a fluctuation in water temperature: which I've experienced at other hotels when a lot of people are showering. The heating system seemed to have one setting:... More

The only thing the Kahler Grand has going for it is location, which could not be more convenient. I stayed her 7 years ago while going to Mayo and head a decent experience. However, the place has not been cleaned or updated since then. The rooms are tiny and the bathrooms not even to navigable for one person, let alone... More

So much about this hotel to like: convenient location, easy to get to off of the highway; well kept for an older hotel; we were able to get to Mayo and shopping via the Skyway and Subway, never had to go out into the cold; very nice health club and pool; discount off of your room if you do not...

My husband and I recently stayed there for my trip to Mayo. They have underground walkways to Mayo but that was the best I could say about it. After a LONG wait to check in we were told that since I didn't make the reservation under the Mayo rate we would have to pay for parking--- in their old garage.... More

My husband and I stayed here for a wedding, and boy did we wish we had stayed somewhere else. To say this hotel is outdated is an understatement. The room had an odd, old smell, and the bathroom was particularly out of date. It didn't feel (or smell) clean. The toiletries were cheap, and very little thought was put into... More

It's great that this hotel is connected to the underground network of the Mayo Clinic. The staff is lovely and the hotel is always spotless. The rooms are quiet and perfect for a good nights rest. The only thing I guess I find is the decor could use an update.
