A new twist on the club.

I've stayed at the Crown Plaza Bloomington several times. I've always had a great experience. This time I had breakfast and lunch at the Restaurant inside the hotel. Wow, the breakfast was wonderful and generous portions. However, the lunch was unexpected. I ordered the "North Club" and was plently... read more

Service was expedient and friendly. The wild rice soup is good and creamy and a nice way to end my trip up north. The hummus was alright but the accompanying veggies were really good.

I had the breakfast buffet for 3 days any was happy with the selection of foods presented. All hot foods were fresh and steaming!!! The Brioche french toast was the best I've ever had. All foods I tried were good. Plenty varieties of fresh fruit and neatly presented. Staff replenished items as needed in a noninvasive fashion. Wait staff was... More

Three of us went for what we hoped was a nice evening meal in the restaurant. The service was horrendous, failed to provide drinks ordered, food was terribly poor, I had fish cakes that frankly were frozen fish cakes and well I did not eat them. I then ordered the local fish and it got worse, the fish was over... More

Lunch buffet was great for on the go lunches. Staff was great and very professional. Vicki and Mario rock the service. Julia keeps it moving like a rock star!

Nothing special, the service was good, the food very average. I would not make a special trip here. There are places easier to get to with far better food. The Dining room itself felt like a school cafeteria. The furniture left a lot to be desired.

The food was adequate, and the prices were fair. What we found lacking was any warmth or atmosphere. I would recommend it if you did not want to go out, but if you want to have a nice meal with some good atmosphere, go else where.
