Rochester Serviced Apartments
Although perhaps not as famous as its namesake in New York, the city of Rochester, Minnesota is a charming urban center nestled on the banks of the Zumbro River. Referred to affectionately as "Med City" by locals, Rochester is home to a vibrant business and technology community and also boasts several areas of historic interest.
The future of business
According to data from the U.S. Census Bureau, Rochester has a population of approximately 108,000, many of whom are employed by the Mayo Clinic. In fact, aside from the state government, the Mayo Clinic is the largest single employer in Minnesota. This world-class healthcare organization occupies several buildings in Rochester's downtown area, and attracts more than 2 million visitors every year. In addition to the city's dynamic healthcare industry, Rochester is also a technological hub, and is home to one of the largest IBM campuses in the country.
Other than these two commercial powerhouses, Rochester is home to many smaller companies. There are almost 9,000 businesses operating within the city limits, more than one-quarter of which are owned by female entrepreneurs. This makes Rochester an excellent place to do business. For executives traveling to the city, Rochester serviced apartments are an ideal alternative to corporate suites at chain hotels. However, this type of accommodation is also an excellent choice for tourists spending time in Med City, and the area certainly has plenty to offer.
Arts and culture
Sports fans will not be disappointed by a stay in Rochester, as the city hosts more than 50 amateur sporting events every year. In addition, tourists visiting the area can learn more about the city's history on the popular Mayo Historical Trolley Tour, a guided excursion around some of Rochester's most important landmarks including Old City Hall and St. Mary's Hospital.
Seeing everything that Rochester has to offer can be hunger-inducing work. Fortunately, the city is home to more than 165 locally owned restaurants, many of which are renowned for their innovative cuisine. Eateries such as 300 First, Bilotti's Italian Village and Dooley's Pub & Restaurant are popular with locals and visitors alike, and are perfect for grabbing a light bite or something a little more substantial after enjoying the sights of Rochester.
Whether visiting Med City for business or pleasure, Rochester serviced apartments are the perfect way to combine the comforts of home with the service and quality guests expect from high-end hotels.
