My company had made a block of rooms and meeting space for a 3 day period. The Director of Sales and the GM were very accomadating. We had forgot to bring a few pieces of electronic equipment, added catered lunches and the staff accomodated us like such professionals. The lunch that the hotel catered was tasteful. Our rooms were 2x the size of a regular hotel room. All rooms were suites! Spacous and comfortable. Our overall experience was wonderfull. Seek out this hotel. You will not disappointed.

Who would think that one of the nicest rooms we've stayed in over the last few years would be in Bloomington, IL?!
We were on our way across the country and decided to stay in here after driving for nearly 11 hours... we wanted something near the interstate and in a safe area. My husband suggested Hawthorne as he had stayed in one in another city. We loved our room! It was HUGE with a four-poster bed and tall ceilings. The bed was super comfortable with lots of pillows. The hotel was very quiet too. Breakfast in the morning was adequate but we had a good night's rest at a very reasonable price. There was a Cracker Barrel next to it which was a perfect place to eat for the weary traveler.

I was looking for a nice hotel for my husband and I to spend our anniversary. After reading the reviews for this hotel and finding a great deal on Orbitz, decided to book. We were pleasantly surprised as soon as we stepped in the door! The front entry, breakfast area, and sitting area were spotless. We were even more impressed with our room. Very cute sitting area and wetbar--loved having a refrigerator! Breakfast in the morning was great--waffles, biscuits and gravy, eggs, bacon, etc. We WILL be back!

Thanks so much to Heather for arranging a lovely room when called with 2 hours notice from the road. We had been traveling for 5 days - a quick out and back with a trailer in tow, to & from Washington DC. Heather's humor & response on the phone were a relief to exhausted travellers, followed by the happy welcome by Alexjandro and even more, his welcome words of "complementary happy hour" (beer, wine, a pot of chili, cheeses, crackers). Walking distance to a family Cracker Barrel restaurant for those dragging trailers, U-Hauls etc. This was our best night on the road-thanks to the kind, smiling, caring employees at this Hotel.

Our group has stayed in other hotels in Bloomington, but none compare to the hospitality, cleanliness and professional, yet warm and welcoming accomodations that we received at Hawthorn Inn and Suites.
Heather, their General Manager, went out of her way to greet our group upon arrival and spent many hours to insure that our group needs were met. Her staff was also extremely hospitable and helpful with our stay.

The hotel is amazingly clean and convenient to everything. The rooms are much bigger then the average hotel or suites hotel with more then adequate parking. The location is just off the interstate and yet, still off the beaten path of most hotels in Bloomington. The complimentary breakfast, again, was a surprise with everything that it offered: eggs, sausage, waffles, cereals, fruit, etc. We were very happy with everything and will be returning to the Hawthorn Suites whenever we are in Bloomington.

WOW! What a shocker in lil' old Bloomington Illinois. We had to go to Bloomington for a graduation. From the moment we walked into this hotel with its marble floored lobby and leather easy chairs, conveniently located minutes off of the highway, we knew we were in for a nice stay. The check-in was quick and effortless. Now we had 2 adults and 3 teenagers in our party. So I had to really check around to find an affordable place to stay. When we travel together (which doesn't happen often due to finances) we have stayed at some run-down, dingy, dark places. But when the desk clerk at the Hawthorn Suites gave us extra towels because there were 5 people staying in our room, the towels were thick, luxurious, Turkish towels - not the cheap crunchy kind we always get at $79.00 motels. They were so nice that, as a Mom, those stupid towels took my breath away. Oh well- let's move on, shall we? When we moved toward the elevator to go to our room, we passed the door to the swimming pool. It was an indoor kidney-shaped pool with a wall of windows looking outside. Being January in the Midwest, the kids were looking forward to swimming in the pool the entire drive to Bloomington so they wanted to take a closer look. The pool room was hot and humid, the water warm. But the best surprise was yet to come. Our room was spacious and large, with a full-sized sofa and two queen beds. At the other end of the room, there was a microwave, a small refrigerator, a FULL-SIZED coffee maker that made 12-cups of coffee, and a couple of cabinets. Being close to the highway, I would have expected noise from the road- there was none. Also, we were able to open the windows about 4". We liked this feature- although because of the cold weather, we closed them right up. There was the requisite writing desk, an extremely comfortable easy chair with ottoman and reading light. The beds were very comfortable with bottom sheet, top sheet, and another top sheet double-encasing the blanket (so that the nasty blanket doesn't chafe your precious skin when you sleep- HA!). Very elegant set-up. I think there were four pillows on each bed. We did have to call for bedding for the couch (and make the bed ourselves). In the morning, they offered you a little buffet breakfast with eggs, sausage, hash browns, three kinds of juice, cereal and milk (no sugared cereals tho), but, to beat the band--- they had a self-serve waffle iron with very simple directions to make your own hot waffles from scratch. We all had fresh, piping hot waffles in the morning for breakfast! What fun, to watch the kids making their own waffles! The only downside to the property that I could see was that the room was heated by an electric heater near the window. It was not silent... But then again, it was NOT the ancient model that you'd associate with a Holiday Inn from the 1970s either. The heater had an LED- display where you would set the temperature you wanted the room. Then the little heating unit would do the rest automatically, turning itself on-and-off as it regulated the temperature in the room. All in all, we were absolutely DELIGHTED with this hotel! What a fabulous value! A business person could live in this room very very comfortably for an extended period of time... You have a small kitchen area and a large room to do with what you will. A large family can NOT find a value like this anywhere. We were just THRILLED. What a shock and a surprise. The hotel employees were polite and courteous, and the hotel really exceeded our expectations. We will look for Hawthorn Suites from now on whenever we travel. And we might just be able to travel a little more with our brood, since we can travel a little more confidently for $79.00, knowing that we can expect to stay at a such a nice hotel chain for a reasonable price.
