I stayed at the Bloomington-Normal Marriott for a church conference in July, 2016. The overall experience was excellent. There was an initial snafu with my family getting a room with a single queen bed, rather than the two doubles we requested, but that was quickly rectified when the staff provided us with a rollaway bed that served our purposed fine....

I've stayed here many times and they always impress....from the valet out front (although self-parking in the garage across the street is easy) to the staff at the desk (manager Fily is as professional, efficient, and honestly warm as any front desk staff in any luxury brand I've stayed in including Ritz, Four Seasons, and St Regis) to the rooms...

We recently moved and we needed a hotel to stay at when we came to visit. We have had great experiences at weddings and dinners here before, but this was our first overnight stay. The room was great, the bed was fantastic, and the manager Sara who helped us was friendly and helped answer questions about the facility and made... More

This hotel is an asset to our community as an upscale quality location for guests and events. The contemporary decor is a strong point, the rooms are nice, the catering and conference room services reliably good. The overall hotel staff may be a bit on the disorganized and inexperienced side when it comes to hosting higher-maintenance clientele or guests who... More

Thank you for the great review. I have to agree that our Presidential Suites are one of a kind in Bloomington-Normal. They are also great for small gatherings. I appreciate the notes for our restaurant as well. We always strive to become better and that is easier to obtain with honest and objective feedback. Thank you. Steve M., AGM More

Each encounter at this privately owned and operated property has been great. We have stayed at this property on two occasions over the last few months and our both experiences (week night and weekend) were everything you could ask for with respect to service and comfort. While the property is a bit aged, the beds are comfortable, rooms are spacious,... More

The hotel staff was very professional and friendly. The rooms were very clean and spacious, I have stayed here in the past and the quality had been kept up from when it first opened. The room was quiet even with the train rolling by at night, you were unable to hear them from the room.

Outstanding hotel, even for a Marriott. You simply won't do any better on location. The best shopping and fine dining are steps from the hotel. You can also find bars, desserts, and a museum outside. It has a nice salt water indoor pool which we enjoyed.
