If your Minneapolis trip is meant to be a Mall of America-focused getaway, you might want to consider staying in Bloomington, the Minneapolis suburb that’s home to the famed megamall. We recommend the Hilton Minneapolis/Bloomington because of its convenient location (it’s oh so close to Mall of America) and family-friendly amenities. From two-room suites to kids’ movies to an indoor swimming pool, there are plenty of on-site perks to please guests of all ages. The price is right too (which, of course, will please parents), as kids ages 18 and younger stay free. When it’s time to shop, a complimentary shuttle carts guests to and from the Mall of America.

The location is great! An easy drive from the airport. Very close to shopping and restaurants. Free parking (both covered and uncovered), good WiFi. The bed was comfy. Our room was clean - not meticulous, but clean. Very friendly and polite staff checked us in; however, the other staff (who was standing next to this friendly one) did not have a smile on her face and didn't try to have eye contact with me even though her name was mentioned during the check-in process. I didn't feel welcomed because of that. But other than that, it was a very good stay.
The Staff was extremely efficient and also very friendly. It took a maximum of 5 minutes for me to check in and get to my room. The room was very clean and the bed comfortable. Good location- near restaurants and shopping. Short drive to the airport.
