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! The rooms look like they have been recently renovated - the decor and furniture were nice. Having a recliner chair in addition to the beds / desk was a plus. The bathroom was spacious;...

We called about 10 minutes before to see if they had availability for a Wednesday late night stay. They were nice and confirmed they had availability. We showed up and drove to the Aspen Suites next door because it is confusing as to where to enter the Hotel and if there was a difference between the two. We got checked...
