Perfect hotel to stay at for sporting events at Blue Cross Arena or Frontier Field. Only negative which can be avoided is don't part in the smallish covered parking area. Every spot has a pillar on each side making it narrow and difficult to negotiate. Park in an outside spot and you'll be just fine.

Stayed on the fifth floor in a very clean up to date room. wifi was a little slow but other wise no complaints.Staff was very helpful all weekend. The hotel shuttle made it easy to get around the city.

Thank you to Mrs. Joan and Mr. Kremp, for accommodating me and my family while our power was out over the course of these last few days. Your hotel staff was amazing, patient and kind.

We stayed there since it was a 5 minute walk to Blue Cross Arena for a concert. Check in was very quick, but we did find out there was a $4.00 charge to park our car. No biggie- its the city. Our room faced the street and was very clean. After the concert and the quick walk, we got back...

Please don't let all the negative reviews steer you away from this hotel. I have stayed at the Doubletree and this Holiday Inn and they are very comparable in room size and furnishings. However, the Holiday Inn is more economical. It is a tad longer to get to Mayo via Skyway and Subway, but still accessible without ever going outside....

We stayed overnight after attending a wonderful performance at the Little Theater. The location was perfect as everything was close by. Lanell at the front desk was very kind and helpful with our check in. Lisa, our server in the lounge, went out of her way to serve us well after the lounge was to close. Our guests, who happened...

Clean rooms and public areas. Free morning coffee in the lobby was a nice touch. The bathroom is quite small. Check in and out was average. It is so much nicer when greeted with a smile and to feel welcomed and appreciated. While the hotel was extremely busy, I wondered why there were only two people available to check people...

En route from Vermont to Toronto stopped here for a night. Hotel seemed almost empty. We had a meal in the restaurant which was fine and breakfast the next morning. Typical Holiday Inn, clean, efficient, friendly and comfortable..

Stayed one night here to visit the Rochester Red Wings baseball team and then do a little shopping in nearby Victor. Nice hotel, very clean, very comfy beds & pillows. Located in a great spot, easy to walk to everything. For a quick getaway, you can't go wrong!

Stayed here as part of a team. Hotel is nice and quite. Rooms are clean and appear renovated at some point in the past. The staff was courteous. Visited the gym which was the usual hotel gym but was clean and in order. The beds were very comfortable. The parking was easy and cheap. I would add a mini fridge...
