With close proximity (1.2mi) to Indiana University, the Hilton Garden Inn was a great hotel for our recruiting trip. Located in the heart of downtown Bloomington, we were surrounded by local restaurants and shops. Easy parking in the lot right behind the hotel. Excellent customer service from everyone we interacted with from the front desk to the custodial staff.

The staff at the Hilton Garden Inn in Bloomington is extremely friendly and helpful. My wife and I were in town for the weekend. They were accommodating and made us feel welcome. We will stay at this hotel every time we travel to Bloomington.

I went to Bloomington on business four times in 2015 and because I like variety I’ve purposely stayed at different hotels on each visit. I chose the Hilton Garden due to its location in middle of so many restaurant choices. Coaches is right on the premises, but many others are in very close walking distance. Parking can always be a...

This was a return visit to this property. The location is great - one block from the courthouse/city square. Several shops and restaurants in the vicinity and within walking distance of the Kirkwood area/IU campus. The front desk staff was extremely friendly and welcoming. She mentioned the request I made at the time of booking and did one even better.... More

The staff is very friendly as they represent Hoosier hospitality well. I love this hotel, it has it all. A great location downtown next to shopping and restaurants. I would recommend this hotel to everyone; family visits, business or just visiting the area.

Great place and a great location. Everything is within walking distance. The hotel bar is okay but there are many other local bars and pubs within easy walking distance that offer great food and drink. Easy walk to IU as well.

Nice location and very convenient restaurant. Best to have a room on the court yard side. Unfortunately during my stay the toilet in the room was not in working order. In addition, it did not help that the mattress was too worn.

This hotel is clean and convenient to the downtown and IU. Staff is great and service is typically good. Nice bar for winding down. Typically good drink/appetizer specials. Room rates are reasonable except on game weekends when all hotel rates are inflated. The only complaint is an unusual occurrence of false fire alarms in the wee hours of the morning.... More

I think that Hilton Garden Inn is overpriced for the service provided. Our room cost close to $100 yet they did not have a simple continental breakfast. While they did not have a continental breakfast, they charged $12 for a buffet in their dining room. Definitely a poor value.
