We stayed here for my re-check at Mayo. I have had many of these so have stayed at a lot of places in Rochester. Our room cost $139 which is high given it's worn condition. The phone did not work, the electrical outlet by the sink did not work, the bathroom is small, out of date and grubby, there was... More

I have stayed here a couple times. The first was a regular room. It was too small and outdated. This time we chose the executive room. It was newly furnished and spacious. A Remodeled bathroom. Only issue is we like it cold in the room and since it was winter I don't think they had the Ac available. However the... More

I was in Rochester for a very scary procedure and the manager David Fischer was more than just casually concerned, he went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable, going so far as to personally buy me pineapple slices when the hotel restaurant didn't carry them. He is more than just a manager, he's a friend, and I can't... More

I can put up with almost anything, but trying to sleep in a very hard uncomfortable bed is impossible. Like most people I am visiting this hotel because I am a patient at the Mayo Clinic. I am in pain and need to get a descent sleep. I needed to take additional pain medication in order to get any sleep... More

My family has been coming up to the Mayo Clinic for over 30 years. We have our choice of many hotels in the Rochester area, but we always select the Kahler Grand. The people are so friendly, the hotel is so well-furnished, and above all, it is so very conveniently located. We wish them the best as they continue to... More

Yesterday, I went onto their website to book some rooms. Because of some unique requirements, I also called to speak with an agent. For the very same room that was showing on their website, she quoted a much higher price $189 vs. $129 online. I thanked her and just booked it online at the lower price. I promptly received the...

We stay at the Kahler Grand when we travel to Mayo. It is perfectly located for walking to all appointments. The Kahler is an older property but pretty well maintained. Check in is usually quick as they store our info. We were on the 6th floor this trip on the Peace Plaza side. It was quiet as nothing is happening... More

First, the positive: the beds are comfortable, the room was large enough and quiet, there are lots of towels, the elevators are fast, and the downtown location is very convenient. I didn't pay personally, but the reading I did told me my room at around $100 was not exorbitant. The roof-top pool was clean and classy. Water pressure was good,... More
