Helpful hotel amenities:
Usually when we go to Rochester, it involves the Mayo Clinic. The experience at Mayo can be stressful, not because of Mayo, but because of the reasons we go to Mayo. Not only is Mayo a top-notch facility, Country Inn & Suites, Rochester South ranks right up there with Mayo when it comes to "customer" care.
