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

This hotel is far from a 4 star. The rooms are small ( unless you are lucky enough to get a corner) the bathrooms are small and have outdated fixtures and the decor is outdated. The shower, however was enjoyable, despite the small tub. I was travelling for a girls getaway weekend.... The small bathroom was a problem with limited... More

I stayed at this hotel one night to attend a wedding. The ladies at the front desk were very pleasant, helpful and made for an easy and smooth check in. I had called previously with a room request and all was just as they'd promised. The room key was a little twitchy and took some a time of two but... More

This hotel has a decent location but definitely shows its age. Think worn out bathrooms, uninspired public spaces, a joke of a fitness center and a consistent theme of dark, dingy wallpaper. However, what prompted this review is the heating system. Which doesn't exist, apparently. I got to my room last night and it was 60 degrees in there, which... More

Stayed for 1 night in a room on the 6th floor that had ants in the bathroom and stained carpet. Walking in from the parking area, you're greeted with signs warning to remove everything of value from your car, which sets the tone. The front desk staff were very friendly. Walking from the front desk to the elevators was a... More
