First we are Spire Elite with IHG so we stay with them a LOT! We have stayed at this hotel numerous times traveling to Mayo with our daughter. The location is great but it is an OLD hotel. Small rooms and even tinier bathrooms ...so small you have to move to close the door. But our biggest issue with this...

The hotel certainly lives up to its reputation. The room was beautiful and it’s such a great location for walking to so many sights. This was a splurge weekend for my wife and me for anniversary and birthday and the staff went out of their way to provide special little touches for us. It is now our go-to get away...

Just spent 2 nights at this amazing hotel. The staff is incredibly friendly. Arriving back at the hotel is like coming home. Location is great. Many restaurants are in the area for great breakfast, lunch and dinner. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay during our business trip. If you want a moderately priced hotel that is...

We stayed here on our recent trip to Rochester. The room had a great view of all of the happenings on the street below, and was surrounded by a plethora of places to eat, drink and shop. Each and every one on the staff, from the manager to the housekeepers were pleasant and helpful. We’ll definitely be back soon.

The location is perfect, and close to everything. There's so much to do within walking distance. As a business traveler I have seen lots of hotels. I typically stay in nice spots because the company pays for it. The hotel has clean, odor free rooms, fridge, and microwave, lots of plug-ins, excellent quality toiletries, and nice towels.

The staff was friendly and helpful before my stay and at checkin. The room was definitely clean and comfortable but felt old and dated. The whole hotel could use a bit more light and an update. Signage was helpful from the parking garage. You do need to pay for parking.

The front desk and housekeeping were friendly. I would recommend it to businessmen needing a place to stay for few nights. It is in walking distance to whatever you'd need to make your stay enjoyable. The bed was pretty comfortable. The decor was nice and the room was well renovated and clean. Would stay here again!
