1.13km from Tacos El SuenoAspen Select (review is NOT for Aspen Suites) - hotel is directly across from St. Mary’s hospital. Rooms have been recently renovated and very nice – clean, quiet (no adjacent room noise) and comfortable; mini fridge, microwave, single coffee maker, desk. Rooms are cleaned by request only or if staying more than 7 days (non-issue since I personally don’t require housekeeping, I can make my own bed & give these hard-working people a break). Parking is in back – if you’re in a large vehicle (van, truck, XL SUV), you can access via the back way (take the side street behind the hotel) and ample parking. Breakfast is on the lighter side: waffle maker, 4 kinds of cold cereal, oatmeal packets, yogurt, fresh fruit, orange & apple juice, coffee, bread & English muffins, and sweet rolls. Staff very friendly & accommodating! I only heard a little outside traffic during the week, especially buses – on the weekends the traffic is much lighter and few buses -- it shouldn’t be bothersome unless your room is closer to the street – our room was in the middle of the 3rd floor and barely heard any street noise. The Canadian Honker restaurant is just steps away offering breakfast, lunch & supper and small bar menu – reasonably priced and highly recommend Bunnie’s Coconut Cake! Since we were in Rochester for 4 days, we drove to Hy-Vee and picked up deli items for lunch & supper (much cheaper!). We did not eat at the other cafe's in the immediate vicinity so can’t comment; there’s also a Caibou farther down the street and a small market (over-priced but if you’re in dire need of something, it’s convenient). I highly recommend this hotel and will definitely stay here again!
