Approximately 2,200 hotel rooms are connected to the world-renowned Mayo Clinic and downtown convention center, as well as many shops and restaurants, via the skyway and subway (underground climate controlled walkway) systems, making it possible to enjoy downtown Rochester without having to step outside during unpleasant weather. The Mayo Civic Center is home to 120,000 square feet of flexible meeting space with 25 breakout rooms available for smaller functions. Seven hotels, many of which connect to the skyway or subway systems, provide additional meeting and gathering facilities to accommodate a variety of conventions. At the same time, the Mayo Clinic and IBM Corporation, two of Rochester’s largest employers, give meetings access to a business environment and workforce known for innovation.
