“Exceptional hotel in Rochester”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

In our recent trip to Mayo Clinic we stayed at the Aspen Suites Hotel. The one bedroom suite was quite spacious and very nicely put together - offering a separate bedroom and kitchen. The room was very clean and spotless. My son and I have made frequent visits to Mayo and stayed at various hotels in the Rochester area. This hotel ranks above the other hotels at all price points. The staff was very courteous and very concerned about our comfort while in the hotel. As another reviewer said this hotel definitely felt like a home away from home. One unexpected and very appreciated extra - especially in the middle of February - was the indoor heated garage. I have already made a reservation to this excellent find for our next trip to Mayo.

They've upgraded their accommodations since my last visit and I was very pleasantly surprised. It is lovely, comfortable, welcoming -- everything one needs when dealing with a medical situation at St. Mary's Hospital (just across the street.) Their generous breakfast selections, both hot and cold, were so good; as was the beef stew offering at the mid-week pm social/snack hour! In mid-winter the heated garage is a life saver. The best thing about the wonderful place is the staff. They go out of their way to be friendly, welcoming, helpful and caring. Kudos to all the staff And to their customer service trainer! Job well done.

Large, clean, well-organized, Friendly & Helpful staff.. Making the guest feel very welcome seems to be the main objective of all the activities & servies..
This review is required to be 200 characters... and I'm given my review... So I'd say the only negative comments I'd have is that there is such a requirement when giving a review..

Room Tip: For a single person or couple.. the studio room is perfect size... There was a pull out bed if need...

Excellent service. Suites are very nice. Location is across the street from St. Mary's Hospital. Newspaper and breakfast every morning and "get acquainted event in the evening". Heated garage. Shuttle to Mayo Clinic. A restaurant, Canadian Honker, is just a few steps away and they deliver! We stayed four nights. If you have a favorite pillow, bring it!

Being far away from home for a devastating diagnosis for our 20 year old son was more than we could bare. Our heads were in a fog and finding a hotel where we and he would be comfortable for the next week of medical care was of the utmost importance. We found it at Aspen Suites in Rochester. The hotel is newly remodeled and very beautiful with a modern, rustic, homey feel when you first walk in. Our one bedroom room was spacious and perfect for the 3 of us with it's separate living area and kitchenette (home cooked food!).The staff was above and beyond helpful and friendly. Especially Jayden, who went out of her way several times for my son and us, especially when issues arose with our billing. She was quick to correct the problem and even compensated us for the inconvenience. I would highly recommend the Aspen Suites.

We had a fabulous stay at the Aspen Suites at the end of January! We had been in Rochester for medical reasons in December and had stayed elsewhere in December, so were very wary. I had researched and found great reviews of Aspen Suites, and decided to stay here as I would be having surgery at St Mary's across the street.
What a wonderful place! Oour room was very clean, had a great layout and the kitchenette had a small sink, large fridge, toaster, microwave, full size coffeemaker, two burner stove- and even a dishwasher! There were dishes, silverware and pots & pans, even sugar & creamer for our coffee. There is a comfy recliner, couch & very comfortable office chair, as well as two desk/tables. The bed was very comfortable and the maid service was outstanding. My husband got to enjoy the room while I was in the hospital and was very happy. I was able to spend the first night, then two more after discharge. It was a wonderful place to stay & I cannot recommend it highly enough. The complimentary breakfast is something else: fresh fruit, muffins, cereal, lots more tasty choices, and you can even make your own waffles. My husband enjoyed the mid-week evening food as well. The heated parking was a godsend; we had two days of freezing rain during our stay but our car stayed dry & warm in the basement.
We are coming back to Rochester in the Spring and will certainly stay here again. Five Stars!!!!

Room Tip: we stayed in 406, just down the hall from the elevator. nice view & quiet.

We chose this hotel because it looked like it was newly remodeled. As stated, it is beautifully decorated and the rooms are very spacious. We had 6 guests in the 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom suite and it was more room than we anticipated. We wanted to just sit and catch up and it was the perfect place. We only stayed one night but the employees made us feel very welcome. They do not have a public ice machine but when my sister asked for ice they opened up the kitchen ice machine and let us have as much as we needed and told us to come back for more if need be. The kitchen had a full size fridge w/ dishwasher. The counter tops are all granite. The beds were very comfortable. The showers had lots of water pressure. The elevator will take you to the heated underground parking (which we did not figure out until we were leaving!) I would definitely recommend this to friends and family. Would have loved to stay longer. At the special rate we got it was even more enjoyable. The breakfast area is welcoming and had many options. I really can't think of anything we didn't like about our stay.

Room Tip: some of the rooms are a bit of a jaunt, if you need something close to the elevator is might be wort...
