We recently stayed at the Rochester Plaza for a wedding. It was a clean hotel with a nice staff. I thought all of the rooms had been renovated in the last 18 months but I think they missed our room. It was clean just looked outdated and definitely worn. The lobby and ballrooms were fine. They certainly need to invest... More

This hotel isn't too bad. My room was clean and modern, except the bathroom seemed to need an update. The front desk that greeted me when I arrived was very nice, but when I returned at night, there was man there that just wasn't nice. He didn't want to answer any of questions and just didn't seem happy to be... More

This hotel is quite dated and furnishings look like they have seen better days! I think the Hotel has gotten their moneys worth, time to replace the carpet, drapes and update the bathrooms. Cleanliness was OK, not spotless. Beds were better than expected. I was warned not to accept a room above the Ballroom on Sat. nights as they have... More

Room was basic but clean. The beds were comfortable and the wifi was fast. Had some nice waffles for breakfast the next morning at the hotel restaurant. We really had no complaints. Overall it was a pleasant stay.

I ordered a room with 2 queens. When I checked in the staff gave me a king - This is not enough room for 4 adults. I insisted the front desk (manager! I later learned) named Robin give me a room with 2 queens or just cancel the reservation. She said she had no room (the hotel was empty you... More

We were in town for a wedding and this was one of the hotels selected by the bridal party. I wish I had stayed at the other hotel. Parking was a disaster. After the first day we never had space in the lot again. We arrived back at the hotel Thursday night to discover that the lot was full and... More

We picked this hotel because it is right in town, plus for the last 14 years, it hosts a nightly jazz jam session during the entire Rochester Xerox International Jazz Festival, from 10pm to 2-3am in the bar. The location was ideal for walking to the jazz festival site, to restaurants, to the river, to the Genesee brewery. We stayed... More

Great staff!!! This could be a great hotel if; 1. Update sleeping rooms and bathrooms 2. Update hallways they look dirty 3. Nice pool but need to resurface deck areas and provide towels. 4. Repave parking areas and offer valet option ($10/day) 5. Full time trained security team These 5 things would make this a premier property that could fetch... More

I stayed here for a night to attend my girlfriend's 50th birthday celebration. It was a 4hr drive from New Jersey. Upon arrival (a Saturday) and check in, there was nothing special about checking in. Receptionist was average, no smile, no welcoming attitude. Went to my room and saw that I had a view. View of a couple of other... More

The location in downtown Rochester near the Genesee River and Main Street is wonderful. You can get South to UR and RIT easily and get to Charlotte and Lake Ontario to the North. The room rug was a bit shabby but the room was clean and the floor to ceiling windows had an awesome view. Did not use the pool... More
