Take a look at the most romantic hotels in Bloomington.
The 233-room Country Inn is a mid-range chain option conveniently connected to the Mall of America by a skybridge (there’s also a free shuttle). Most guests are families who want to shop, and family-friendly rooms sleep up to six and feature microwaves and mini-fridges. Past guests have reported damp odors in the bathrooms and inconsistent housekeeping. The free breakfast gets rave reviews, and a TGI Fridays and IHOP are on-site. Two indoor pools, two whirlpools, a 24-hour gym, and laundry facilities round out the features. Other perks include mall discounts and free round-the-clock coffee and cookies -- plus free parking, a free 24-hour airport shuttle, and reliable free Wi-Fi. Downtown Minneapolis is about a 15-minute drive away. For something closer to the city center, consider the Hilton Garden Inn Minneapolis Downtown.
Radisson Blu Mall of America is an upscale hotel that attracts families and business travelers. The 500 rooms and suites are diverse in style with comforts like mini-fridges, though the Suites and Mansion Rooms are the most spacious with extra amenities like separate tubs and extra toiletries in the bathrooms, and separate living spaces. The four-pearl hotel has on-site amenities like a pool, fitness center, and a spa with a full-service salon, though its biggest attraction is the skyway that connects the hotel to the Mall of America. A free shuttle to the nearby airport and easy access to the light rail station that travels to Minneapolis’s most popular areas makes the location of this hotel superb, an aspect that is reflected in the high prices.
Sheraton Bloomington Hotel is a four-pearl business property located in a suburb of Minneapolis, about a 25-minute drive from the city center. The 282 rooms are consistently sleek and modern, with big flat-screen TVs and a minimalist, gray-dominant color scheme found throughout the property's common areas. The main clientele are business travelers, which is reflected in the amenities: a Club Lounge with free breakfast, a business center, free and fast Wi-Fi, and -- most of all -- a huge variety of flexible meeting spaces ranging from meeting rooms to a 500-person ballroom. There's also a fitness center with modern equipment, but the lack of a pool or spa might put some people off of staying here. Those keen on swimming should look into staying at the Hilton Minneapolis/Bloomington nearby, which has a small indoor pool and a hot tub.
