Have MRI on 1 Dec and consult with neurosurgeon the next morning. I have a meningioma and cavernoma. Wanting closest hotel. When I call the Marriott number it’s not the local number. Trying to speak with someone at that Marriott, not a call center. Have questions like… how close is it to the clinic? Safe to walk to at night? Shuttle if needed? Hope to get best rate? I was quoted $170 with tax by reservation service but i know sometimes you can get better rates if calling directly to hotel. Any hints? Suggestions? Just suck it up and pay it because of closeness to Mayo? :). Thank you so much!! I have AAA, AARP and am retired Army Corps of Engineers civilian. It will be me and two friends.
