Formerly the Fiksdal (which I wouldn't have stayed at), but now the newly renovated Aspen Select right next door to the Aspen Suites. The room is more than adequately sized with a large king bed microwave refrigerator desk and all new euro-modern dark tone colors. I normally stay at Marriott hotels usually, because I am always assured of excellent bedding....

The hotel looks older from the outside but do not let that bother you. The rooms are perfectly remodeled and extremely nice. I like that the hotel is green and only does the extra cleaning upon request. Adam at the front desk was superbly the best employee. Perfect location while visiting St Mary's/ Mayo. Only suggestion- outdoor seating on second...

I remember this hotel from my childhood, but you wouldn't know it's age by how nice it is today. Clean, upscale, spacious accommodations, conveniently located, with friendly, professional staff. One of the best places we've stayed.

The hotel rooms were beautifully furnished, and the rooms and hotel were extremely clean. Very courteous and helpful staff. Simple but delicious breakfast. Nice location if you are visiting mayo - about a 15-20 minute walk to main campus or very short drive. Worth it given how reasonably priced it is relative to hotels directly next to Mayo's campus.

What a warm, friendly place we found in Aspen Select. We had an appointment at Mayo for a second opinion on a critical health diagnosis; we were uptight and worried. The comfortable, clean rooms gave us so much comfort and staff was so helpful. We were there four nights and had two rooms side by side. Two members are back...

We have stayed at the Aspen Select Hotel at every visit to the Mayo Clinic since 2013, when my husband stayed 4 months there while I was a patient at St. Mary's hospital. The staff is always warm and welcoming. They go out of their way to meet your every need. It is like going to visit old friends when...

We stayed at the Aspen Select Hotel during my father's recovery from a stroke. The entire time we stayed at the Aspen Select we were treated extremely well. The newly remodeled rooms were a pleasure to stay in and most of all the staff was extremely courteous and friendly!

This hotel was a pleasant surprise. It's pretty basic on the outside, non descript, and was apparently a hotel that was built in 1965 and recently renovated. I was at a different hotel and went to check this one out in the middle of the night-literally. I wanted to know where I was going the next night and the 3rd...
