“Great place - clean, friendly employees”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

We were in Rochester for medical procedure and stayed at Aspen because it was directly across from St. Mary's Hospital where the surgery took place. They have a shuttle to Mayo Clinic which is one mile down the road where pre-op tests were performed the day before surgery. We flew in from Upstate New York and didn't rent a car, so the free shuttle was very convenient. The rooms were very nice and clean. The employees were all very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good with plenty of choices. The Canadian Honker Restaurant is right next door and we ate at least one meal a day there and they also deliver right to your room for a $3 charge. Laundry room was clean. They have treadmill, eliptical machine and bicycle and a spa. We hope to not have to return for anymore medical issues, but would highly recommend this hotel!

As others have stated, this place is directly across the street from St. Mary's hospital. Friendly people at the front desk. Very nice continental breakfast in the morning. There was an attendant on duty who was constantly wiping table and replenishing items. Our room was clean and beds were very nice. Room had a nice kitchen area. Even in frigid temps the room was warm. Outdoor parking appeared plentiful. Underground parking is not plentiful--limited spots exist but we were able to find parking there. Shuttle service to clinic, etc. No Big Ten network as part of television channels, though. Canadian Honker restaurant was a nice place to eat with friendly people. Great coffee bar there too. Would stay again!

We chose the Aspen Suites because of its easy access to St. Mary's Hospital and because it had a full kitchen which saved us on having to eat out. Also there were plenty of beds for our family. We were there 9 nights. The service and housekeeping was very good. We especially liked having the heated underground parking.

We have been staying at multiple hotels in the Rochester area for the past 10+ years as we need to visit the Mayo 2-4 times a year and this is has been one of the best!!!! Not only did we get a great value (check out their current coupon offer here on trip advisor) but it was super clean, pretty, relaxing and convenient. The rooms are large and quiet suites, beds were great! The breakfast was both healthy and hearty, great coffee bar offered all day too (Wolfgang Puck brand.) We lucked out and also got to enjoy a taco bar they offered later in the day. This is directly across from St Mary's Hospital and a short drive or shuttle bus ride to Mayo Clinic. Free Parking here too which is another bonus, parking comes at a price both at the hospital and the clinic and street parking is almost nearly impossible to get. If you choose to eat out and want a great place you will be literally about 15 steps away from the area famous "Canadian Honker" where we have ate multiple times and have always been impressed, they also have a nice informal bar for drinks. Short walk to McDonalds and Caribou Coffee:) You really can't go wrong with this hotel unless you are set on a pool (they have a really large whirlpool though.)

My wife and I travel to Rochester for medical reasons. The Aspen Suites is the ideal place for several reasons. Directly across the street from St. Marys hospital, shuttle service to the Mayo Clinic, good restaurants close by, and absolutely the best hotel breakfast buffet in town. I must also relay my complete approval of their staff, helpful,courteous, and friendly. With all of the stress my wife and I have with medical issues, we do not stress at all over where to stay in Rochester.

My husband and I stayed there for the first time in December after previously staying at different hotels in the Rochester area. We were very impressed with the service and the accomodations. You could not ask for more as I think that they have anticipated all needs including the shuttle service and breakfast. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the housekeeping was excellent. Needless to say, we will definitely look for the Aspen Suites hotels again.

My husband and I stayed here for a week while I had appointments at Mayo. The rooms were very clean and has a full kitchen. The breakfast that was included with the room was amazing and had lots to offer. Three days a week there is a social that has a small dinner or appetizers. The staff was very friendly. There is a shuttle that runs daily that will get you to the Mayo Clinic if needed. I will stay here again!!
