Mayo Clinic Rochester MN: Where to Stay? Shuttles? Parking?
I will be coming to Mayo Jan 23 for my initial eval. Right now I'm booked at Brentwood Inn, which allows cancelation day of by noon, should I not need the full reservation. Of course as new patients we're told we can be at Mayo anywhere up to 5-7 business days. However, I've since started looking at other hotels, with more amenities. Staybridge Suites is 3.5 miles away. Bigger rooms, bedroom, a living area and full kitchen, indoor pool and whirlpool. They also have a free shuttle to/from Mayo, if needed, tho I will have a car anyway. The immediate area around the hotel looks like there's restaurants etc also.
Has anyone stayed here? Your thoughts if so. Do you think it's an issue to drive to/from for appts / tests etc? What is parking like at Mayo? Easy to find? Convenient? Any parking fees?
Any info about Staybridge or if there are other hotels with indoor pool/ hot tub closer that you'd recommend, that would be appreciated! thanks much and happy new year!
