I traveled for 2 1.2 hours for a business trip. There were three employees and at the last minuet I could not physically drive so my husband went with us to drive, When we checked in I inquired about late check out so that my husband had someplace to stay while we where in the meeting. I was told we...

We were upgraded to a suite however with a single king bed in the suite, it simply wouldn't work for 2 men travelling. Front desk found us another room and while not a suite it was a very large corner unit with 2 queen beds, fridge and microwave and plenty of space. The beds were incredibly comfortable with high quality...

Came here with my daughter for a mini getaway. Was pleasantly surprised at the room as it was clean, spacious and the beds were very comfortable. The only thing I might suggest is they add to the room a couple chairs to sit in and maybe another table with a lamp. The bathroom was clean and had nice towels. The...

We had a couple days off in Rochester in December... yikes! Not a lot to do that time of the year, but the front desk staff helped us find restaurants, shopping and a theater to watch Star Wars IV. I can't say enough about help friendly & helpful they were. And the rooms were great too!

This is my first trip to Rochester and the experience was a good one. The room and service was great, but there was very limited parking due to some construction. Overall good experience, but I will stay outside of the city next time unless I have need to be downtown early.

The previous hotel, Rochester Plaza, has been hosting our association's annual Christmas party for years - it's a BIG group, but they somehow always managed to provide good food (better than average buffet, with plenty of options for those of us who don't eat red meat), and usually more than enough for the several hundred guests. The Holiday Inn bought...

I have been following this hotel since it was built in the 80's. It was really a jewel. Then it seemed to fall on hard times, going through many different managers. It's recent reincarnation as a Holiday Inn is certainly an improvement. Even though is has gone through a renovation, there is still a feeling of things being unfinished. The...

The reviews had me nervous, but this is a nice hotel. Not sure what it looked like before the renovation, but the room was immaculate and well appointed.
