“Great hotel. I would highly recommend if you are in Rochester”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

My wife and I stayed at the Doubletree in Rochester during a visit to the Mayo Clinic. What a great hotel. Due to multiple appointments at the clinic, we ended up staying for five nights, including the weekend. The hotel has quick indoor access to Mayo. Every single employee of the hotel that we had contact with during the stay excelled at their job. There are plenty of good dining options within walking distance of the hotel. Pescara is the hotel restaurant. I tend to think of most hotel restaurants as average at best. This place is fantastic- probably the best hotel restaurant I have ever dined at. It's not cheap, but if you are looking for a fantastic meal, give it a try. Overall, we had a great experience at this Doubletree. We are headed back to Mayo later this week, and are looking forward to our stay here again.

I strongly recommend this hotel. It is hands down the best hotel in the vicinity of the Mayo Clinic. Its newly renovated, clean, with a pool, gym, business center, sauna, great service, skywalk connecting it to Mall and Mayo Clinic. Also home of the best restaurant in Rochester, "Pescara."

Room Tip: Higher floors are more luxurious, executive level and above.

If your in Rochester to visit the Mayo Clinic, the Double Tree is an ideal location with great service and friendly staff. I highly recommend the hotel. It is ideally located with several restaurants in the neighborhood. The best value in the the area.

Wow... did we luck out! This hotel has it all - location, attentive staff, great amenities, great food! We just landed here by the luck of the draw and by perusing the reviews and we couldn't be happier. First trip to Mayo's and this hotel makes a stressful situation so much better. We feel like this is our home away from home. Starbucks, a great restaurant, a beauty salon... all within the hotel and all just a 9 minute walk indoors to the Gonda building at Mayo's. Fabulous! We will always stay here!

Great experience at this hotel. The rooms are spotless and the bed linens smelled as fresh as when I pull mine out of the dryer. (If you've read any of my other reviews, you know clean linens are a must!)

Good sized room, with fridge & microwave. Bathroom was also spotless and it was nice to have robes in the closet.

Attached to the University Mall with some expeeensive shops and a Starbucks.

My only beef? No Coke, only Pepsi.

This is a perfectly located, beautiful, well-managed hotel with an excellent restaurant. We stay there every time we come to town; we cannot imagine being in any other hotel in the Gonda area. No matter what our need, the staff does its best to help out. I use supplemental oxygen and the folks at this hotel see to it that the oxygen tank is in our room as soon as we arrive. We always have a room on one of the HHonors floors, which tells you how often we show up in Rochester.

Room Tip: Many rooms have a walk-in shower instead of a bathtub; ask for one if that is your preference.

Bellmen, front desk, and executive level staff were all outstanding. They took care of all our needs including having a wheelchair for my Mom during her entire stay. I was extremely happy with the hotel.
Note: we had three meals in the hotel restaurant. All were seafood, all were also outstanding. We experienced no issues whatsoever with any of the staff, nor did we believe that the prices were higher than any other hotel restaurant. Service was again, excellent.
Also note: It may be true that the skywalk does reach the main Mayo buildings, but I would suggest using the Hilton's car service for visits to Mayo. It's first come, first serve, but everything is five minutes away so that it is efficient.

Room Tip: The Executive level is well worth the few extra dollars for the meal service in the evening and morn...
