Very friendly and helpful staff

My wife and I stayed here with three young children and had a great time. We especially felt the staff were super-friendly and helpful, and were very tolerant of the kids. The restaurant there, Char, was excellent and they made things off the menu for the children. The hotel is clean and comfortable and in a great neighborhood of Rochester.

A great weekend getaway with the kids!

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
This was a "staycation" for us since we live in the area. We stayed with our 3 kids and went to the Strong Museum of Play, Memorial Art Gallery (1 block away), and Rochester Museum and Science Center (practically across the street). The kids loved the pool, we loved the room service and the close proximity to the museums. We are planning to do it again next year. We got a room with 2 queen beds and a sleeper sofa. They honored our request for early check in and a room with a balcony (it had 2!). The staff was friendly and proud of the hotel's recent complete remodel.

Tired Hotel

Cons: not super clean
This is a tired hotel that had its hey day. It needs some tlc badly. I had stayed here 18 years ago and it was da bomb back then. It is shabby and sad now and reminds me of a cheap New York Tourist hotel. Not worth the money. Great location. Bed was comfy. Room was skeezy. Cleanliness in question. I would not stay here again.I think you can get nicer for the same price--but maybenot the great location.

Great location - great property!

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
The Strathallen is in an excellent Rochester location, walking distance to some museums and in a nice neighborhood. The restaurant was very good and the staff were tremendously helpful.

Great value.

Pros: Free breakfast, Free Internet, Quiet
I have stayed at the Strathallan Hotel on business a few times and vastly prefer the comfort of the Strathallan to alternatives downtown. The rooms are a great value for the price. They are spacious and accommodating particularly for longer stays. The staff has been efficient and pleasant. It is my first choice for accommodations in Rochester.

Pristine linens!

The accommodations are not the most modern. The television is an old crt model. But the room was clean. The sheets and bedding were a pristine white. The bed was made to show the mattress and allowed for easy inspection. I felt safe that the room was bed bug free. Overall the hotel has an old fashion charm.

Would stay there again.

This is not the newest hotel around, but a great value, spacious (real) suites and a wonderful location. A few quirky things like not many hangers but any shortcomings were addressed quickly by the friendly and competent staff. I would definitely stay there again.

Great Stay

Great stay! The service was great, very helpful staff. There is so much to do in the location, and you can walk to all of it which was great since we didn't have a car. The staff are all knowledgeable about where to eat in the area or what to do. Room was nice for the price.

Ran as fast as I could to another hotel!

Wow! Could the front desk clerk have been ruder? I think not. After waiting 10 minutes to check in initially I had to wait another 15 minutes to try and change my room. I was given a converted conference room with no dead bolt and free access for intruders, that is to the parking lot. As a single female I wouldn't recommend staying there. For the budget traveler who is willing to sleep on a lumpy bed and overlook the stray hairs in the bathroom it is probably fine. I went 1/2 mile down the road to the Hyatt, where I was treated like a human being and loved the comfy room, flat screen TV and soft towels. Did I mention the Hyatt was the same price as the Strathallan. So, I guess sometimes you do get more than you pay for....if you stay at the Hyatt!
