The Hilton Rochester Mayo Clinic Area hotel is now open in Rochester, Minn.
The 264-room, 20-story hotel is one of the first completed projects in Rochester’s Destination Medical Center initiative – a public-private partnership to position Rochester as the world’s leading destination for health and wellness. The hotel offers a blend of dining, hospitality, conferencing, and wellness options for area residents, the business community, and medical tourism.
The 371,000-sf, L-shaped tower’s first five floors offer visitors retail options, two grand ballrooms, a 24-hour fitness center with a heated infinity pool, a spa, and an outdoor terrace. Two restaurants will also be included.
A two-way steel truss system and specialized vibration analysis methods allowed the design team to stack two 9,000-sf ballrooms on top of each other to create more space for conferences and programs. The solution lowered the height of the building by 10 feet compared to a traditional truss system, resulting in significant cost savings.
