For the second year in a row, the Hilton Rochester Mayo Clinic Hotel won the Connie Award as the top Hilton hotel in the nation with 500 rooms or less. Managed by Rochester’s Croft Hospitality, the 264-room, 19-story hotel has 20,140 square feet of event space, including two ballrooms. The hotel is two blocks from Mayo Clinic and connected to the clinic via skyway. The hotel also won the Connie Award in this category last year. The award, named after the chain’s founder Conrad Hilton, is bestowed based on overall experience and service.
