Great place to stay for an IU visit - very convenient and nice rooms. Rooms are large and well equipped with anything you need. The concierge was helpful with directions and maps to places on campus and food.

Great location and memories of staying here previously. Room was in need of updating -- old, worn furniture, very poor lighting (except in bathroom) and just an overall dated look. However, we would always choose to stay in the Union when we visit the campus because of the location.

Thank you for staying with us and thank you for rating our service and cleanliness so highly! Being a part of the Indiana Memorial Building is a great feature of the hotel and provides us with a lot of history and charm.

Everything was outstanding, except the room service breakfast. It was cold and not very good. The hotel was very courteous when we told them, and completely took it off of our bill, and gave us a discount on the room. I felt they went above and beyond to make it right.

Great location on campus, free parking, great rooms-and still convenient to Kirkwood and Downtown activities. I've stayed at IMU Biddle Hotel numerous times since graduation and rooms/beds are great but most enjoy staying comfortably in the center of the Indiana University campus.

The location can't be beat! No stress of traffic or parking--we walked to all graduation events. Downtown is a short walk away. The Starbucks in the Union started our mornings off-- a beautiful hotel.

Biddle Hotel is a great place to stay; it's the heart of the IU campus, but near the cute shops and interesting stores of downtown. the IMU is always my first choice when in Bloomington, and I felt very fortunate have been able to stay here during a busy commencement weekend.

For a 2 night stay not having room cleaned till we called and requested at 4pm was very unacceptable . Also air conditioning never cooled room 362, thank goodness for windows that opened. Not having food available before 8 am in the Union that we could find was disappointing

Staying at the Union made our daughter's graduation weekend the best. As always, comfortable, cozy with a great location. The Union is one one of my favorite places to stay. It is an incomparable combination of nostalgia and the present.

We stayed for two nights. Beds were very comfortable and hotel was quiet. Maid service was not adequate for the $159 per night fee. Not all trash picked up, cups and toiletries not replaced which makes you wonder if the cleaning was done adequately. The sink stopped up when you used it and the door kept shutting on the tv,...
