The Hilton Minneapolis/Bloomington is a good-value hotel with a solid reputation, accommodating staff and well-maintained rooms. Set just south of Minneapolis in Bloomington, you’ll find the hotel off American Boulevard, making it convenient for speedy access to the interstate and St Paul Airport. Unsurprisingly, this makes it popular for business travel and stop-overs -- there’s even a free shuttle within a five-mile radius for guests (which includes the Minneapolis/St. Paul Airport).
For in-house dining, the reliable Bloomington Chophouse Restaurant specializes in grilled steak and seafood, while the Olive Lounge serves high-end diner food like lobster mac 'n' cheese and mini Wagyu burgers. Other desired facilities include a 24-hour gym and a heated indoor pool and hot tub.
The rooms are quiet and have comfy beds and large windows to let in plenty of light. There are no fridges or microwaves, but coffeemakers are standard and there are free newspapers available on weekdays. Upgrade to an Executive room for access to the lounge, where breakfast and free snacks are served throughout the day.
Make time to visit the Mall of America, the largest shopping mall in the nation with hundreds of shops and restaurants, plus movie theaters, a mini-golf course and an amusement park. It’s an eight-minute ride from the hotel via the shuttle service and there are connections to downtown Minneapolis via the Hiawatha light railway.
