We stayed at the Holiday Inn Downtown from July 19 -21, 2013. The location was perfect for us, because it was 3 minutes from the Rochester Recreation Center where my daughter had a club swim meet. She was able to warm up in the pool at the hotel, before heading over to compete. The hotel is 3 minutes to the Recreation Center.
The room was clean, but small. Only 1 person could fit in the bathroom at a time, and there was no counter space with a mirror or sink outside the bathroom. Very poor design planning. I can't imagine a family of 4 trying to get ready with the layout of the bathroom.
There was only 1 floor with the ice machines too, which I thought was odd. Usually there are ice machines in the lobby or every floor.
The front desk service was slow, but they were all friendly. We were able to walk to several nice places to eat and shop. We would stay here again for the location, however, I would ask about different room types with bathrooms.
