HILTON HOTELS & RESORTS BRING CONTEMPORARY DESIGN TO NEW DOWNTOWN ROCHESTER HOTEL

April 10, 2019

Rochester, Minn., April 10, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hilton Rochester Mayo Clinic Area, a breathtaking 19-story, 264-room state-of-the-art, full-service hotel just blocks from Mayo Clinic and Mayo Civic Convention Center, is the latest addition to Hilton Hotels & Resorts,one of Hilton ’s 14 market-leading brands.

The modern hotel was designed to invoke a theme of nature in order to provide serenity for those seeking treatment at Mayo Clinic. To bring this theme to life, public spaces throughout the hotel incorporate many different tiles, stones and woods that give the space a natural aesthetic. Metal elements were also incorporated throughout to reflect the similarity to the exterior of the hotel. A giant master staircase featuring hand crafted wooden rails and granite stairs are positioned as the center focal point of the hotel lobby. All guestrooms feature Cambria counter tops that incorporate a stone pattern that was custom-designed for the hotel.

Entitled “Everlasting Hope”, the visually soothing, large-scale painting featured in the hotel lobby by artist Amy Donaldson, is a beautiful work of art that is reflective of the nature-focused interior design. According to the artist, the piece was envisioned as an expression of perfect love.

“We are thrilled to be introducing this type of hotel accommodation to the Rochester market. Ownership is excited, the local community is excited and our team members could not be more excited,” said Miki Radovanovic, Opening General Manager. “We look forward to April 16thwhen we are able to open the doors and welcome guests.”Additional hotel features and amenities include:
