traveled to the Mayo-it is directly across the street.You can not do a better location or nicer people. Stephanie at eh front desk is knowledgeable and genuinely friendly. Clean rooms for 1920's motel

If I could -negative rating I would have. Overpriced for 2015, Its like stepping back in time. No Breakfast included, Parking charge of $17.22 that wasn't advised. Avoid this place. Obviously taking advantage of people who are visiting the Mayo Clinic..Please do yourself a favor and stay somewhere else.

This was our second Mayo visit and first stay at the Kahler Grand. My husband and I prefer historic hotels. We had a nice comfortable room on the 9th floor. All staff we dealt with were courteous and helpful. I love the location as well as the plaza outside where there are restaurants and shops along an outdoor street that... More

This hotel is conveniently connected to the MAYO network through skywalks and underground walkways. My room was clean and was overlooking the Square and it being Thursday they were celebrating the Thursdays on 1st street fair. Excellent music and food throughout the street fair. Mandy at the front desk was always cheery and great at checking me in and out... More

We went to Rochester for medical treatment. I made a reservation at the Kahler Inn and Suites but when we arrived at 6:30 p.m. they had overbooked and sent us to the Kahler Grand Hotel. We had stayed at the Kahler Grand before, and found the rooms small and the free (with a "Mayo Clinic Guest" reservation) parking garage sufficiently... More

Ultra convenient to Mayo Clinic, helpful staff (especially Mandy front desk and Deb in room service). They also have nice rooms for a very low price and some beautiful rooms for only a slight increase.

We had a family member we took to the Mayo Clinic. This is definitely the closest and most convenient hotel to the Clinic. It's an old hotel and rather elegant. It's well taken care of, but ask for a tower room or a room more recently renovated. Most of the staff was polite. The concierge was a college student or... More

I keep reading reviews for this hotel, which range from "great" to "ugh". I can only guess it depends which building your room is in, our room #770, was an oversize king bed room. Clean, spacious, super comfortable bed, ok the bathroom was on the small size, but with a wet bar, under counter refrig, microwave, lots of drawers, closet... More
