We booked this hotel through Priceline and ended up getting it for $67 a night. So that part was good. It's also directly across the street from the Mayo Clinic and connected by the subway. Also good as I was having surgery at Methodist Hospital in February and going outside was less than desirable. The lobby of the hotel was nice and there were several little boutique type stores on the main level, but that's about where the nice ends. The room we had was desperately out of date. The beds were hard and uncomfortable (and to be clear, I'm not a super picky traveler), although there were plenty of pillows. The bathroom sink wouldn't drain, and was dirty when we first got to the room. But when we asked for maintenance, the guy was up to our room literally within minutes to fix it. The shower sprayed in all different directions, and the drain stopper wouldn't stay up. No one came to clean our room. The restaurant attached to the hotel had a pretty good selection of bar type food on the menu, but none of it was particularly tasty. Parking in the garage was $12 a day, and we could come and go as we pleased. Also, the internet was free and reliable. We have stayed in 5 different hotels in Rochester in the last 4 months. This one was by far the worst.
