Very accommodating and helpful, and the location relative to the Rochester Mayo Gonda Building could not have been better. The room was comfortable; however, the carpet was a little dated and there was some signs of wear. While many hotel patrons are patients of the Mayo Clinic, there were also many physicians and others staying at the hotel for conferences,...

When I walked into the Kahler, I'll even admit it was beautiful. Except the man bleeding all over the front lobby. Now this wasn't the hotels fault and I'm not holding them accountable. What I am holding them accountable for was the fact that after the man had been transported out, the front desk attendent asked me if I was...

Beyond convenient, this is a great place to stay when waiting for that Mayo appointment. The hotel staff takes care of everything. The rooms are comfortable and well kept (the recent remodeling has improved the overall quality and feel of the rooms).

This hotel is very convenient to the Mayo clinic which was our reason for being in Rochester. There are several hotels close to Mayo that would be a better choice. The beds were not comfortable, the remote for the TV was the wrong one. I would not stay here again because of room was sub par and the bathroom was...

WARNING: I returned to my room to find my suitcase in a different location from where I left it and discovered a pair of earrings were stolen. They were in a tiny bag in the bottom of my suitcase and so my entire suitcase was emptied to find them. The manager of the hotel is not taking my report seriously...

Biggest problem- BAGGAGE STORAGE UNRELIABLE We had four bags and didn't notice in collecting them from a baggage storage valet and loading them immediately in a van service to an airport that one bag belonged to someone else. Three days of worry before our bag was delivered to our home by a manager ( a 180 mile trip). Checkin- had...

Closest hotel to Mayo Clinic connected by tunnels so you don't have to go outside! Most courteous staff especially Jennifer sveska! She has gone out of her way to help me so many times. Ask for the newly updated rooms if that's what you like. Coffee shop food is excellent! I just love this hotel!!!!!!

The Grand Kahler has a terrific location next to the Mayo Clinic. I requested a "deluxe" room, for $250. The room was antiquated in decor. The bathroom had pink tile that was cracked in many tile, the basin had a rubber stopper on a chain, and the basin backed up the minute the water was on. The flush handle on...

This is one of the strangest hotels I have ever stayed in, and it will be difficult for me to put into words exactly what the experience was like. Figuring out how everything worked was like a sequence of mini games within a larger game (i.e. my review title, Hotel Dusk Room 215, a fantastic DS game by the way),...
