I stayed here two nights on business. I had previously stayed here before for a business trip also (about a year ago). The hotel is conveniently located approximately 7 minutes from Rochester Airport.

The rooms on the back of the hotel face the river and have a gorgeous view. Th

Staff were friendly and responsive. Skyler (at the front desk) and Dina (the van driver), provided lots of useful advice. The gentleman who was refilling the evening buffet, spontaneously went to the kitchen to find me a cookie when there were none left.

Great staff with clean rooms. Free social hour as an added bonus with beer, wine, and light fare. Was very impressed and would absolutely stay again in the future. Not to mention a nice pool and fitness center. Great stay.

Hi , I would like to know if the pool is in open? I have read on some reviews that it hasn't been.
Today the pool is open (they wanted me to sign a waiver not to drown) The hot tub is closed today.

Is it safe to walk around near this hotel? One of the room tips said not to wander too far from the hotel. A reviewer at a different site said the neighborhood is not good. The message boards at various places-rated sites say the close-in west side of town is sketchy. My husband plans to walk over the nearby footbridge to the university, but he sure doesn't want to be mugged!
The neighborhood is not great, but it is safe during the day. There is a lot of foot traffic on the pedestrian bridge...mostly students and faculty...and it's a lovely walk. We were there for over 2 weeks and I walked my little dog over to the campus every morning and afternoon...never had a problem.

Looking for a room with 2 queen beds but none listed for the date I need. I see a suite with 1 queen and 1 sofa. Sounds like sofa might convert to bed, but not sure. Has anyone used the sofa bed option before? How comfortable/uncomfortable is the sofa bed?
"River view rooms are quieter and have better views"
"Ask for top floor river view for best views and to avoid hearing footsteps on floor above."
"Most rooms have view to the river."
"Stayed on 4th floor with excellent view of the river."
"Next time we will book a riverview"
$103 - $173 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
