I was looking for a Hotel for my stay in Rockester, MN., while I attended the Mayo clinic. The Kahler Grand was just that, GRAND. The Hotel is right across the street from the Mayo clinic, includes free parking while you stay, and it is connected to the "under ground" subway which makes the hotel very convenient for travlers during...

We went to Mayo. Stress level dropped from the moment we walked in the door of the Kahler. Comfortable and comforting. Highly recommend. Easy, easy access to medical campus and cool restaurants and shops.

I recently was scheduled for appointments at Mayo Clinic and once again made a reservation at the Kahler Grand Hotel. Over the past three years, my family and I have stayed there when in Rochester and have been very pleased with the quiet, clean and friendly atmosphere. The staff always makes you feel like they are welcoming you home when... More

If your traveling to Mayo this hotel couldn't be more convenient. The Gonda building is right across the street. Service at this hotel was excellent. An example of outstanding service was the morning of our first appointment at Mayo we were approached by a staff member asking if we needed help (we must of looked confused). We asked him where...

We stayed in 408 for a conference. The room was so run down and I'm not sure when the bathroom was last updated? 1921? Tiny bathroom, old fixtures, rust around the medicine cabinet in the bathroom and the kleenex metal box and the ceiling light. The carpet was teal green and grimey looking. Wallpaper was peeling in spots and had... More

Dated is not the word for this old, dorm room style hotels. Mink coats for sale in lobby shops but the room looks like 1920. I was flabbergasted that the worlds finest medical center had this hotel to stay at. What a dump. Small, like 200 sq feet rooms with tiny bathrooms. Love the 80 year old fixtures that make... More

Stayed at this hotel while attending my son's conference. Nicely done rooms, large and clean bathroom, decent enough breakfast. A convenient, well located, well priced hotel for my needs. But given it is a corporate type property - unlikely ever to be a 5*!!!

I've stayed here a number of times over the years when I've been in Rochester for Mayo Clinic appointments. I have a consistently good experience staying here. This hotel is clean, inexpensive, and perfectly located right by the Gonda Building and Methodist Hospital. The service is very friendly.

Recently stayed at the Kahler Grand. I booked a Deluxe two double bed room. This was much more up to date and nicer than a room I had on a previous business visit. The room size was acceptable. Room was clean, staff we dealt with were friendly. Waitress in the Grand Grill was super nice-we were just coming in for... More

Came to Mayo for a conference & was looking for a place close to the conference site. This hotel definitely met that requirement, but the room was VERY small with only a full size bed, which was very lumpy. The carpet and drapes were very old, and the room smelled quite stale. The wallpaper was literally peeling off the wall,... More
