We decided to stay at this hotel because we had appointments at Mayo Clinic. The underground access to Mayo makes this this very convenient and we also enjoyed the underground parking. Front desk staff was friendly and helpful and our room was very clean. Appreciated the fact that there was a Jimmy John's connected to the hotel. We were on...

Rooms are outdated but clean, so close to the Mayo clinic if you are flying here for an appointment. A shuttle will pick you up from the airport, so need to rent a car. It is closed to many restaurants within walking distance.

This historic hotel is both welcoming and charming. The staff are caring and efficient. The pool is large and relaxing. The rooms are comfortable. The location in downtown Rochester and the connection through the tunnel system to the Mayo is convenient. This is where we stay every time we go to Rochester. It reminds me of the Stanley Hotel without...

After living away from Rochester, MN for 11 years we did a nostalgic visit to the 100 year old Kahler Grand Hotel across from Mayo Clinic. We stayed in a very small economy room with no closet or view from window for three nights for under $100 / night. Very pleasant and service-oriented staff. The lobby was great place W...

Let's be clear. This is NOT a great hotel. it's old and tired. My shower was 6'6" and 28"x30" - no kidding. A joke! I could barely fit in the bathroom. My bedroom was European scale and so, so out of date. The lobby feels like its last update was in 1950. BUT .... good value (not great) which is...

We couldn't have asked for kinder treatment from the staff of the Kahler Grand last month! Though the property is somewhat dated, that lack is made up for by those who run the hotel. The common areas, restaurants and bar area are quite accommodating. When visiting the Mayo Clinic in the future, we will most certainly continue to stay at...

My husband and I were pleasantly surprised staying at this grand old hotel after seeing so many bad reviews. We asked to see our room first and then to see an upgraded room and even though the economy room was small it was clean and nice. The economy upgraded room however, was slightly nicer with a bathtub and view so...

I have stayed at the Kahler several times. It needs some upgrading but is very convenient to the Mayo Clinic. The staff is helpful and friendly. They should only use their own booking system as on two occasions a third party system was a major failure.

While the hotel appears to be nice in the common areas, it is a bit more on the old side, instead of quaint. The rooms are sparse, and the furniture is dated. A great location, however, being adjacent to the Mayo Clinic.

I have been staying at the Kahler Grand on visits to Mayo for the past 20 years. Each time I am treated to an affordable and pleasant experience with all of my needs being met. The guest rooms are clean, comfortable and well appointed. Staff are incredibly friendly. Underground subway (walkway) to Mayo is a huge advantage. I do not...
