I looked for places that would be suitable for those wanting to access the nearby hospital and find a quiet and comfortable place to rest, which would also not 'break the budget'. Glenrose Rehab Hospital is near to downtown and as such there are a lot of good hotels in proximity to the hospital, but many of them are quite expensive.

After comparing all the hotels below for room rates, extra fees and customer satisfaction, I found the following two hotels that could work for medical purposes. Cleanliness, comfortable surroundings and amenities that work, quietness and friendly staff are important considerations in these cases. Also on-site dining can be an important aid to save on time and resources.
