In Rochester for a July wedding, we followed everyone’s recommendation and stayed at Woodcliff. Nearly everyone during our three nights there was involved in a wedding, some of the ceremonies conducted on the hotel’s verdant grounds. This gave the place a festive atmosphere. Amenities were in every way excellent. Although a lot of partying was clearly going on, our room was soundproof. From the outside Woodcliff looks a little like a corporate HQ (planting trees in and along the parking lot, California style, might be worth a thought), but the interior is well designed and smartly appointed. Woodcliff houses a swell old-style hotel restaurant (great view of Rochester and hills south of the city) and the breakfast buffet is worth every dollar. Woodcliff is not inexpensive but hardly extravagant. You definitely get full value and there’s no nickel-and-diming, as in a Hyatt. The pool and fitness center are on the level of a private club. Just outside there are forested trails and the concierge is happy to provide a map. The staff are unfailingly polite and helpful—but not obsequious. All in all, Woodcliff is very endearing, a word usually reserved for small boutique operations. This four-star hotel situated southeast of Rochester will be the place we stay in future trips to that part of New York State. Woodcliff’s proximity to I-490 makes the New York State Thruway and downtown Rochester readily accessible.
