Have stayed here many times while going to appointments at Mayo. Hotel is very clean, staff is friendly. Have never had a problem with room or staff. The lady that died the happy hour reception is very nice. Recently stayed on 3rd floor and has been updated recently. My only complaint or suggestion is to move the smoking area away from the front door. The “ashtray” and smoking bench are right at the front door. With so many patients staying here for appointments at Mayo it works be helpful not to have to walk through smoke to get into the hotel.
The staff at this hotel are very accommodating and kind. The rooms that have been remodeled are lovely. WE did find the beds too high but the manager assured us that the height was being remedied as they risers were the wrong ones. The driver that took us to and from Mayo Clinic even came into work early to get us to Mayo for our early appointment. We are staying at this hotel each time we visit Mayo. I highly recommend it.
