We stayed two nights at this Bloomington, IN hotel because we were guests at a wedding. The couple chose this location because it was close to Indiana University, where they met 8 years prior. The location to the downtown square of Bloomington was excellent as well.

The staff is great. They're friendly and go out of their way to accommodate your every need. The hotel restaurant offers good food and a wide variety of beverage choices. The location of the hotel is in the heart of downtown Bloomington and if you choose to go out, there are plenty of restaurants/bars within walking distance

Very good stay. Very friendly staff. Responsive to concerns. Accommodated me by printing a city map for me to use while walking around Bloomington since they were out of their normal map.

Front desk staff is exceptional - friendly, very courteous, helpful. Facility a little dated. Good on-site parking at reasonable price. Room small for price and for Hilton Garden Inns in general. Bed comfortable, cleanliness of facility is good. Breakfast is not included, which is ok, but breakfast buffet was very sub-par (even if were free) - rolls stale, somewhat dry,... More

The staff at the hotel were fantastic. They all were friendly and accommodating. There was a tailgate reception when we arrived. A huge bonus is that our team was staying in the same hotel. We were able to watch them load up on the bus.

Hotel is well placed downtown. Easy walking distance to everything you need in the vicinity. Parking is in the attached garage. Very reasonable rate with IN/OUT privileges all day. Rooms are clean and spacious. Overnight parking is free on the streets around the hotel but becomes pay to park after 9 am. No valet.
