The Rochester Marriott Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota Completes
its Multi-Million Dollar Comprehensive Renovation and Redesign

The 203-room Hotel is Operated by Interstate Hotels & Resorts

ROCHESTER, Minn., November 10, 2011
- The Rochester Marriott Mayo Clinic Area has recently completed a comprehensive hotel renovation and redesign that adds casual comfort and modern updates to its lobby, reception desk, lounge, restaurant and guest rooms.

A hallmark of the extensive renovation is Marriott’s Great Room lobby concept, which incorporates adaptable working and socializing spaces. The new design modernizes the hotel’s public spaces, blending natural elements with accents of visually stimulating colors, textures and warm tones to create a sophisticated yet relaxing atmosphere.

“We are delighted to introduce the revitalized Marriott hotel to our guests, clients and the community at large,” said General Manager John Peart. “The transformed spaces and upscale design will enhance our guests’ stay experience, in addition to increasing the comfort level of Mayo Clinic patients and their families who stay with us.”

The new Great Room lobby features the renovated Vino’s Restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, a full bar, and Starbucks® coffee. The overall bar and lounge area was increased to accommodate more flexible seating with several zones for relaxing, working and dining.

Throughout the Great Room, guests will find complimentary Wi-Fi, electrical outlets throughout, a communal table and semi-private seating nooks. These flexible spaces are ideal for working, dining, socializing or relaxing, day or night.  The traditional hotel reception desk has been replaced by three check-in pods, providing a more personal and welcoming experience upon arrival.

A brand new Concierge Level Lounge is now available exclusively for guests staying on the Concierge Level.  In addition, all guest rooms received new, bright and fresh interiors, luxurious pillow-top beds, new furniture, HDTVs, and bathrooms with new vanities, flooring, tile and lighting.  The indoor pool and spa was also updated with new tile, furniture and lighting.

The Rochester Marriott Mayo Clinic Area is located at 101 First Avenue SW, directly across from the Mayo Clinic and connected by an underground subway. For further information or reservations call the Rochester Marriott Mayo Clinic hotel directly at (507) 280-6000, or visit .
