Rochester IHG Dual Brand Hotel EVEN + Staybridge

Mayo Clinic’s world famous care attracts large numbers of visitors which created a demand for adjacent, quality modern hotel accommodations in Rochester, Minnesota. With an ideal corner right across the street from Mayo’s St., the developer carefully worked with the neighborhood, the hospital, and the city planning department to make a high density but appropriately scaled hotel, Dual Brand EVEN + Staybridge, that would be best in its class in Rochester.

At the busy corner a block of guestrooms cantilever over the entrance to a prime retail rental space. On the quieter North side the massing is broken up into lower scale volumes with pitched roofs precisely designed to avoid casting a shadow on the adjacent residences. The 250 guestrooms are split between a new brand EVEN Hotels that emphasizes health and wellness and Staybridge Suites, an extended stay flag known for their hospitality and comfort. Amenities include an indoor pool, an upgraded gym, a bar with full kitchen, and meeting rooms all connected by the spacious lobby and a courtyard plaza.
