“wedding”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2013

in town for a family wedding; hotel is well-located, close to mayo via street and skyway; walking distance to most of downtown rochester, many nearby restaurants, olmstead county courthouse, arts center, zumbro river along which one can walk or run breakfast buffet was standard fare, but the waitstaff and the chef were friendly and most helpful the fitness center is small, but adequate for the hotel's size; decent pool area indoors

This hotel is very close to Mayo Clinic as well as many restaurants in Rochester. The hotel is clean. The staff is friendly and accommodating. I'd recommend this hotel to anyone going to Mayo Clinic or just to Rochester in general.

this hotel is connected to the mayo clinic. easy access to all of the buildings. if you or your loved one travels in a wheelchair, suggest that you take the skyway to/from the hotel to avoid the sidewalk traffic

We love Hilton Garden Inn! Flew in for appts at Mayo. Took the skyway some but also got shuttled to and from by the hotel! Didn't miss having a vehicle at all! Very accommodating! Highly recommend.

The breakfast you pay for but it is absolutely AMAZING! A chef prepares your omelet fresh. Totally worth the $10.95 because you have a grand buffet to choose from as well!

It was a great experience staying at the Hilton Garden Inn. The staff was very welcoming!I would definitely recommend it to anyone visiting the Mayo Clinic. They could not have been more accommodating. The rooms were clean and the facilities were very nice including the pool and hot tub.

I stayed at both the DBl Tree Hilton and Hilton Garden Inn during my week stay in Rochester. I found the staff at the HGI to be exceptionally friendly and happy to help in anyway possible. Upon arrival I was given a delicious treat and two bottles of water and shown the amenities. The Hilton's car service was ready within 5 min. each time I needed to be taken to and from Mayo. The hotel was clean and it was apparent that the employees enjoyed their jobs.
