I am in the healthcare industry and normally stay at the Marriot right next to Mayo when in town on business, which can be pricey. But we were here for a week while my husband was having tests and decided to try the Courtyard. We were not disappointed. Hotel staff was extremely accommodating and we had the fastest check in I have ever had at any hotel - bar none! The rooms are typical Courtyard and appeared to have been recently redone, although the beds were a little lumpy. The Courtyard is directly across the street from St. Mary's, making it a good alternative if you having treatments there. It is about a mile (15 minute) walk to the Mayo Clinic and downtown area, but there are a couple of free shuttles that are easy to catch and the public bus is easy to navigate. This is MInnesota and a mile hike in the middle of winter won't be for everyone. Other reviewers have indicated there was a charge for parking. We decided not to rent a car and took a shuttle from the Minneapolis airport, which I highly recommend if you don't believe you will need a car while in Rochester. If you are here to visit the clinic, you will want to use the shuttles anyway. The Courtyard is a regular stop for the shuttles and there is one that can even get you door to door to St. Mary's across the street if need be. I should note that Rochester is not a taxi friendly town. If you are going to need a taxi, plan ahead. It can take a while to get one - even if you are at the Rochester airport. The Courtyard has a Starbucks on property, along with a bar and grill that is a full serve restaurant. Room service is available. However, I'd recommend the Canadian Honker just down the street (less than a block). It's open for Breakfast, lunch and dinner and has a full bar. So if you are a "Marriot" person, this is a great, and cheaper alternative, to the Marriot downtown. There is also a Marriot Fairfield Inn just down the street from the Courtyard, which is another option if you are on a budget.
