ROCHESTER, Minn. - It is a project years in the making, and now the work on the Hilton Hotel in downtown Rochester is finally done.

The grand opening was held Tuesday for the hotel which features more than 200 rooms and is within walking distance to Mayo Clinic.
That's beneficial for many who make regular trips to Mayo.
Ron Carpenter and his family have been coming to Rochester for treatment at Mayo Clinic for years, and he says he is always looking for more places to stay near the hospital.

“We like staying within walking distance of Mayo Clinic. so we've stayed in a number places here.”
