Whenever my husband is in St. Mary's hospital we stay at the Aspen Select. It has always been a great experience. Sheila and Adam are great employees I seem to always have more interaction with Sheila because she works days. She makes you feel very comfortable and is great

I have real mixed feelings about this place. The staff is terrific. Very friendly, warm and helpful. But they are not able to overcome some of the inherent design deficiencies of the building. The room was recently remodeled and the furnishings and mattress upscale and comf

Hello and thank you for your review - it helps us to improove. You are absolutely right - the building is extremely unique and has challenges - we do our best to overcome them. We are looking to replace the door on the connecting rooms and hope this will solve some noise challenges. However, our fitness room has two treadmilles, and elliptical and an exercise bike - plus a few free weights. We are looking to add more free weights in the future. Cooling a building that runs on a boiler is a challenge - great for our guests that like a warm cozy room - but challenging if you like it cooler. I am glad we were able to help you out with a fan. Our executive Queen rooms do have a large exterior window - it does not open - but it is a window with a view of Saint Marys. Our View Two Queens rooms have a side window that would allow natural light as well. Thank you for your comments, we hope to improve on some things that we can. Thank you for staying with us - we appreciate your business. Warm Regards, Laurel.

Thank you for this great 5 Star review and for sharing your experience so completely with other travelers. We do run very busy - so always recommend that our guests book for the maximum possible stay - you can always leave early as long as you book directly with the hotel. I am glad that we could help you out during a difficult time. Thank you for your business - we appreciate it very much! Warm Regards, Laurel.

I need to be sure that there is a full kitchen (i.e., full fridge, cook top, microwave, sink) and am wondering about laundry facilities -- is there a washer/drier in the room? Is it on property? If the latter, is there an additional cost to use them?
Hello, The Aspen Suites has kitchenettes in all of their rooms, the Aspen Select does not. With this said, the Aspen Suites is directly across from St Marys hospital - all of their rooms have a Full Size Fridge with Ice Maker, Microwave, Dishwasher, Two Burner Stove top and small sink. They do NOT have ovens. We supply a set of stainless steel pans, silverware, dish soap, dishwasher soap, Kitchen towels, mixing bowl, plates and glasses and coffee mugs. There is also a coffee maker in every room. Laundry facilites are free to use, just need your own soap and we provide a laundry basket. The Guest Laundry is on the first floor. If you have additional questions, feel free to call the property at 507-289-6600.

We have 3 small, well-behaved dogs. Could we stay with all 3 pets at your property?
We do accept pets, we do not normally accept three in one room - but if there is no issues with barking we are willing to give it a try! Our pet fee is $75 a week for the first week, an additional $75 for the 2nd week and it caps at $150.00 a month.

I'm 74 and want to know if there is a hotel shuttle that can take me to St. Mary's across the street.
Hello, Yes - we have a shuttle that runs Monday thru Friday and starts at 6:10am. The first stop is at St Marys, then it continues down to the Mayo/Gonda building. Warm Regards, Laurel.

"5th and 6th floors"
"The inside rooms are quieter than the city view rooms due to bus traffic on the outside rooms."
"get the king bed"
"Room with city view gives you your own window, instead of a hallway window."
"The setup is somewhat strange with windows facing the hallway but we had corner room so it was quiet."
