We've stayed at the Kahler Executive Inn which is directly across from the Charlton Builiding (Methodist Hospital) and one block from the Gonda and Mayo buildings several times. Its very convenient and we ate most of our meals in the Methodist Hospital cafeteria which is actually in the Eisenberg building. (800) 533-1655. $100 category.
This last time we stayed at the EconoLodge on Broadway out just south of the fairgrounds. The shuttle service was convenient for all appointments at the Clinic. 2008 rates put it in the $51 -$100 category. This is where we plan on staying in the future. (800) 55E-CONO.
Plan on w/in walking distance or using the shuttle service as parking near the Clinic is expensive and inconvenient as ole billy heck.
My neighbor has liked staying at the Days Inn Downtown. Just a block's walk from the Gonda and Mayo buildings. It is said to be the oldest building in Rochester. Its attractive, the staff is pleasant, there is a restaurant in the same building. I wasn't comfortable there. My husband is an electrician and the wiring made me nervous. I'm sure the wiring was up to code, do not misunderstand me. But ... I'm not comfortable w/more than two plugs to an outlet.
For years we stayed at what was once Centre Towne motel but that was bought out and became the Executive Inn on 5th St SW. It was a nice 4 block walk to the Clinic. But the last time we stayed there the chain had let it run down and it was not clean. We went to the Kahler Exectuve Suites and Inn the next couple of times until my last visit. My neighbor and I compromised and agreed on the EconoLodge which we both liked.
The town has changed a lot thru the years and I'm hard pressed to recommend reasonable priced, convenient restaurants. All have been bought out by chains and outsiders where once we had delicious food at reasonable, almost cheap, prices in locally owned cafes and restaurants.
My computer says I need to upgrade my brain to be compatible with its new software.
