The title says it all, or almost. This hotel is exceptionally clean with even the stairwells glistening. The beds are very comfortable and the air conditioner worked so well I think you could have made ice in the room if you kept it on maximum (Rochester temps were in the 90s while we were there).
We were only a 5 minute walk to the Mayo clinic. I assume the subway system would be even faster as there would not be any lights. We didn't try it as the weather was perfect for walking outside.
The elevator system is a bit odd if you are on the 4th (top) floor. From within the building you first take one elevator to the 3rd floor and than another one to the top floor. However, there is one from the parking lot (parking is free) that will go to all 4 floors. That is the one we usually took and then walked inside to the lobby if we needed to. I assume they added on to the hotel at some point in time which has resulted in this configuration. For us it wasn't a big deal because the only time we went to the lobby was for breakfast. If this may seem like it may be an issue for you I suggest asking for a room on the bottom 3 floors.
Breakfast was basic. One watch out is the microwave in the breakfast area. It is very powerful and you will likely boil over your oatmeal if that is what you choose to have (learned the hard way). We switched to getting hot water out of the coffee machine and that worked perfectly.
Wifi worked perfectly for us and we had full signal strength in our room. Staff were friendly and helpful.
There is no pool, hot tub, restaurant, or gym at this facility so if that is what you need this is not the place for you; however, if clean, comfortable, convenient, and economical are what you are after this is a great place to lay your head. Note - there are plenty of restaurants nearby.
If we return to Rochester to revisit the Mayo Clinic, I won't hesitate to rebook this facility.
