Obviously, the location could not be better--short walk across 2nd St. to St. Mary's. Also was close to two good restaurants--Canadian Honker and Presto's Cafe. Room was clean and quiet. Staff was very friendly and very helpful. Shuttle picks you up right at the door to get to Mayo Clinic. King size bed was comfortable, as were the desk chair...

My husband and I stayed at the Aspen Select 2 nights before I was hospitalized at the Mao Clinics St. Mary's Hospital across the street. My husband stayed there 3 more nights. We had looked into other hotels less expensive further from the Hospital but were so glad we chose Aspen Select. 1) Parking is free. Saving the parking charges...

My family stayed at the Aspen Select Hotel for 3 nights while I was undergoing a procedure at St. Mary's. The staff was very friendly and welcoming, and the room adequate for our purposes.

The hotel is located directly across the street from St. Mary's hospital. The staff were great to work with. I did not know if I would be needing a room for an additional night and they were great to assure me "don't worry about it", just let them know when I knew for sure. Free parking and breakfast included. Great...

Located directly across the street from the Mayo hospital, this is a clean hotel with very friendly staff. It is a fairly basic hotel, but if you have relatives across the street at the hospital, this is the perfect place to stay.

This hotel is a great location for St. Mary's Hospital, right across the street. It was clean and comfortable and the staff were friendly. We drove to downtown Rochester for dinner at the Half Barrel restaurant which was very good. We had an early report time of 5:45 a.m. and unfortunately were woken up out of sound sleep to the...

My dad and I spent a week there for surgery that he had at St. Mary's. The location is perfect - literally right across the street!
