We we in town briefly. We chose the Kahler Grand, only because of location which I did rate a 5. It is directly linked to the Mayo Clinic through tunnels and is right across the street to walk in good weather. It is prime for shopping and food close by and is the hub to the underground shopping tunnels which are awesome.
The hotel itself has rooms that are very small, with lots of cracks in walls, ceilings and bathrooms. The lobby and main level, and exterior do not reflect the severely dated rooms.
The bathroom had 1 outlet the barely held a cord tight. It was almost impossible to shut the bathroom door while standing in the bathroom, even for my skinny 12 year old.
The Starbucks was the best thing going at the hotel.
I will stay elsewhere next time.
