My "guy friend" and I stayed at this hotel two weeks ago, and we cannot say enough good things about this property. Upon entering our room, we agreed that we have never smelled a hotel room so clean and fresh. The kitchen was great, and we even had an oven. I used the grocery shopping service, so that I could...

The rooms and grounds were clean. We had the great Marriott hospitality shown to us. I used the mobile app to check in and they had our keys ready when we walked in. The complimentary breakfast was filling and delicious. We used the free shuttle to go to Mall of America. It left at the top of every hour and... More

We just returned from a weekend stay at Residence Inn Bloomington. The new renovations look great and really are a nice update to the hotel.

Just did a 3 week stint in Minneapolis and have to say we were all very happy with the choice of hotel - it was a home away from home!

We stayed here for President's break with our 2 kids and their friends. When we checked in, we were impressed by the friendly receptionist. She spent some time looking for a good room location for us so we would be the closest walking distance to the very nice, warm pool (the hot tub was great too!) Everything was good the... More

Stayed there about 15 days in 3 separate rooms, both remodeled and old rooms. Even the new remodeled rooms are done half hearted, just some paint, new carpet and furniture, but same old bathroom and other things. LOL who puts carpet in a bathroom area??
