We've been coming to Rochester since 2007: often twice a year and have tried a number of cheaper options but have returned. The reception staff and drivers are friendly and helpful with a sense of humor. The shuttle is dedicated (runs 6:30 am to 7:45pm on the half hour) and you do not need to take a tour of other hotel parking lots. The breakfast is good with precooked cheese omelets, substantial sausage patties and fingers of french toast. Cereal, waffle maker, yogurt oatmeal (with cranberries, brown sugar and almonds) and danish complete the offerings. Fresh apples, pears, bananas and oranges are available during the day and evening. "Soup therapy" in the evenings. The coffee is great. Packaged breakfasts are available to take with on request.
Over the years the hotel has underwent major remodeling: the latest revamped the lobby and dining area maximizing the usable space. The beds are comfortable (we have bad backs) and we avoid noise risks by asking for rooms away from potential noise sources. The AC and fridge were quiet...almost unnoticeable. The bathroom was clean and well maintained: nothing noticeable to this picky eye. The exercise room was recently updated. Pool is available but no one used it: have to remember to bring swim gear next time!
Mayo clients like us seem to be dominant guests with a few younger business travelers thrown in. There are special Mayo and AAA rates which vary during the year. I found that you are better off to make your reservations directly.
