Always a bice stay here. My go to placein Rochester. I love the outdoor uncovered pool in the summer and the beautiful water side views. Lots to do downtown close and the bar and resturant are great too. Love the access from the parking garge. Too bad its per day parking though. Only bad thing! But still great.

Retirement Celebration for my Pastor

I was pleasantly surprise at the Radisson Hotel and its connectiveness to the Rochester Convention Center. I appreciated the hotel's downtown location and parking facility. The hotel's restaurant made eating a pleasure, especially its buffet breakfast. The hotel room was not a disappointment, instead it turned out to be everything that it had advertized to be.The microwave and refrig and large scale TV made it feel like home.The queen size beds were comfortable as well. I can see the pride and work the hotel staff puts in maintaining the facility. When I have a need to be in Rochester, New York, I will surely seek out this hotel for my stay.

Patronize the hotel restaurant for the breakfast buffet. It's worth checking out before you venture out.

Strange

Know Rochester was very strange experience. The Hotel is very well located. Look's a old fashion hotel, but it is ok. The only thing that I haven't like was the noisy that comes from the bathroom. To much noisy!!!

Old Building, Worn out feeling

Good Points: People were very good. Bed was fine, Shower was fine. The Bad Part: Old worn-out carpet - gives an impression of old building. Did not find it adequately lighted Separate knobs for hot & cold water in the basin (old building) Food was expensive - A 5$ soup on menu would cost $12 if served in the room?? Pathetic Internet

Last Minute Stay

We decided to book here at the last minute to extend a stay in Rochester. The staff was very accomodating. The room was nice enough for the price. It did have a great view of the city. The hotel restaurant/bar leaves much room for improvement.

very comfortable

The room was very clean. The bed was wonderful. I was on the 15th floor and had a nice view of the river and city. All the staff was very friendly. The legends restaurant in the hotel was overpriced for the quality of the food but I guess that is typical for hotel restaurants.

Great Value and Very Good Room

Upon arriving and unpacking I discovered the room's manual safety lock was broken. Once notified, the hotel staff saw to it, it was corrected with a few hours. They even offered a room change, but I declined since the repair was scheuled, and occurred, very quickly. Room was clean and well appointed. Low floor location had the potential of being noisy, but the room was located at the end of the building well away from conference rooms or elevators. The hotel was located near numerous bus stops and right across from Rochester's Conference Center. The stay was very pleasurable and a great value. I will be back the next time I am in Rochester.
