Hilton Hotels & Resorts Brings Contemporary Design to New Downtown Rochester Hotel

Travel Agency News for Hilton Hotels & Resorts

ROCHESTER, Minn. – Hilton Rochester Mayo Clinic Area, a state-of-the-art hotel located just blocks from Mayo Clinic and Mayo Civic Convention Center, opens its doors today. The 19-story, 264-guest room hotel is the latest addition to the Hilton Hotels & Resorts portfolio, one of Hilton’s 17 market-leading brands.


This modern hotel incorporates a nature inspired design, bringing serenity to those seeking treatment at Mayo Clinic. To bring this theme to life, public spaces throughout the hotel feature a variety of tile, stone and wood elements that give the spaces a natural aesthetic. Metal elements are also incorporated throughout to reflect the exterior of the hotel. A giant master staircase, featuring hand crafted wooden rails and granite stairs, is the center focal point of the hotel lobby. Additionally, all guestrooms feature Cambria counter tops which incorporate a custom-designed stone pattern.


The hotel lobby features a visually soothing, large-scale painting entitled “Everlasting Hope,” by artist Amy Donaldson. This beautiful work of art reflects the nature-focused interior design of the hotel and, according to Donaldson, was envisioned as an expression of perfect love.


“We are thrilled to be introducing this level of hotel accommodation to the Rochester market,” said Miki Radovanovic, opening general manager, Hilton Rochester Mayo Clinic Area. “Our ownership, local community and team members greatly look forward to opening our doors and welcoming guests.”
