I have enjoyed the Kahler Grand on many mayo trips. This time I was having surgery and inquired about the Towers. Ms. Florien spoke with me and booked room 1120 for me. I must say , I will never be able to go back downstairs . Ms. Florien attended to my every need including running down to gift shop to... More

Lots of history here folks. Really cool place with style and grace. Love the lounge for anything your heart desires. Ross could not be more helpful. Great location for Mayo clinic visit and close to great restaurants and shops.

We recently stayed at the Kahler Grand Hotel in Rochester. Be sure to ask for an Executive Suite if you are there for longer than two nights. The hotel is old and tired and the bathrooms are extremely small.

The hotel itself is quiet comforting, It wasn't my first time at the hotel and I always liked it. The employees are respectful especially one named Paola. She is very kind; even though we requested a lot of services, she never complained or said no. She always smiles at people which is a very important thing. I believe that she... More

The Towers at the Kahler Grand are conveniently located directly across the street from The Mayo and Gonda buildings. If you're doing anything at Mayo this is the place to stay. Our room was in the 10th floor, it was quiet, comfortable, and clean. The Tower's staff were there to please. They are there to make sure your stay is... More

Stayed at the Towers for a week while visiting Mayo Clinic. All levels of service were excellent. This is the ' luxurious' area of the Kahler Hotel where no area of service is skimped. I was especially fond of the amenities in both the common area and in the guest rooms.

Visiting Mayo Clinic for your annual check up or an unexpected visit? Staying at The Towers, located in The Kahler Hotel, makes everything less stressful. It's connected to the Mayo Clinic campus via the "subway" or lobby level for easy weather free access in an often blustery Minnesota season. Pull into the Kahler hotel and ask for directions to the... More
