This was our second stay in the past year and we love it. Nice location, pleasant staff and very helpful in every way. We plan to stay here again in the future. It's also close enough to the clinic that we get some needed exercise.

Clean rooms and convenient to the Mayo Clinic and St Mary's Hospital. Evening dining is just next door or down the street. Continental breakfast was very complete and a great way to jump-start the day. The hotel staff was helpful and the shuttle service to Mayo's was much appreciated.

My family chose Aspen Select for the proximity and ease of getting to St. Mary's, but had to cancel when our circumstances changed at the last moment. We didn't get to stay, but Laurel, the general manager, was very kind and took care of our needs. For others in this situation, be sure to get a cancellation code when cancelling.... More
