“Another Really Good Hilton Garden Inn”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

Stayed here for two nights at the end of a two week vacation to spend a day at the Minnesota State Fair before our flight home. Room was nicely appointed and well-maintained, with adequate electrical outlets. Had dinner at the hotel the first night - everything was as advertised and well-made, and Sue the bartender/waitress was delightful, and a great source of information on the Fair.

Rooms are a little smaller than some of the other Garden Inns we have stayed at, but still of a decent size. We had one issue with a lamp that was difficult to turn on and off. The manager came up and tried to fix it and provided a workaround when she couldn't; the problem was resolved by maintenance the next day.

One thing to note - the hotel shuttle is very busy, and there is no room on the schedule for unscheduled trips, except for airport pickups. So if you are planning to use it to the airport or the Mall of America, you may want to check in advance so you know it will work for you. (But note that the shuttle leaves for the airport at the top of the hour from early morning to late evening, and it is not difficult to to get from the airport to the Mall via light rail.)

Business travel takes me to this part of Bloomington/Minneapolis several time each year. Whenever possible, I will stay at this Hilton Garden Inn. The property is clean (freshly updated), convenient and the staff is particularly helpful and friendly.

My daughter and I stayed here for one night as we shopped with her college roommate for supplies/furniture. We selected it because it's convenient to the Mall of America and easy to get to the U of M campus. Very clean rooms/hotel, comfortable beds, spacious rooms, easy to regulate room temp., overall wonderful experience. Would definitely stay here again!

Was there on business for a week. Great location, close to corporate offices and places to eat. Although the food at the hotel is really good. Susan the bartender was great! Loved her friendliness! They also have a great indoor pool!

Excellent hotel with the greatest staff in the world. You will find your experience here to be the best. I stay in a lot of Hilton Hotels, this one always exceeds my expectations. I love the location just off I494 only a few minutes from downtown and close to the airport. Again it is the staff that keeps me coming back.

The hotel was very nice!! I would highly recommend staying here. The room was very clean and the linens seemed to be all new. We used the pool while we were there also, it was a little on the small side but was enjoyable. It was nice to have a refridgerator in the room to keep drinks and snacks cold. If we go back to Minnesota I will be staying here again.

We stayed here in one of the whirlpool suites for a night away from the kids. We had tried another whirlpool suite in a different hotel in the Twin Cities area a couple of years ago, and it was really kind of trashy. This room was just a normal hotel room, but the whirlpool is located in the bedroom portion of the suite, as opposed to the front room. I liked that just because it felt a little more private to me. The bedroom is separated by an actual door, not just a wall, and that also felt more private. The bathroom was quite large, but the shower was pretty small and had very little shelf space for shampoo and soap. Really nothing "special" about the room, but the whirlpool tub is a plus. Very relaxing, and large enough for two! And, although this hotel is in the vicinity of the MSP airport, we never heard a plane during our entire stay. In fact, this hotel is just enough off the beaten path that it was very quiet.
