The Holiday Inn Downtown was the best choice when traveling to Rochester for a wedding! The staff was wonderful. The location is close to the BlueCross Arena. There is a nice bar by the hotel lobby with great customer service. The rooms were very clean, but most importantly the beds were extremely comfortable!!
