We were in town for the university graduation. The hotel staff went out of their way to be helpful and make the weekend as special as possible. The rooms have an empty refrigerator, awaiting anything you want to pick up, a microwave, and a coffee maker. In the lobby, there was a large refrigerator with water for the taking, various snacks, coffee/tea and ice water scented with strawberries and melon. The ballroom downstairs had an extensive breakfast buffet - not gourmet, but a good start to th... Read more

What a lovely visit! The rooms were very nice & clean! The desk staff were wonderful! They greeted us with a sincere smile and with an attitude to serve! They were proactive in every way which eliminated the need for reaction! The food was great! This was the perfect place for a Toast Masters Conference!

Everything was great. Front desk staff couldn't have been friendlier. My only minor annoyance was having to feed the parking meter when I was checking in (but that is the responsibility of the local municipality) as I never carry coins.

Staff was incredibly friendly, the location was absolutely awesome to walk around the city and explore. There was awesome oat-white chocolate cookies in the lobby one evening and there were always people chatting and lounging in the lobby. It made me feel like I was in a city center--it was nice!

Very nice hotel in good Bloomington location. Clean facility and extremely friendly, efficient desk staff. They made us feel very welcome. Beds were comfortable - the pillows were plentiful and just what I like. Breakfast buffet had a good variety. Would have preferred to be able to order from a menu. Parking is in a city lot and self park is still $10.00 per day.

The Hilton Garden Inn has alot going for it. Indoor parking,exterior courtyard, downtown access near the courthouse and comfortable rooms. But the best thing about it is the people. Courteous, smart knowledgeable. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who plans on staying in Bloomington. Oh there is one other thing, the breakfast buffet was pretty good.

We stayed here as a large family for a wedding. Our rooms ranged from queens, kings, and handicapped. The staff were willing to help us change rooms to have a more realistic handicapped room. The parking garage is very easy to get to and the hotel is within walking distance of a great places in Bloomington. The only disappointment was not having a complimentary breakfast.

We used this hotel for a week for an Indiana University project and found it perfect to meet our needs. The staff is outstanding--several were students in the hospitality field. They watch out for things to please you and volunteer services. The room was clean and well kept. When we had a minor issue with the TV, help appeared immediately and provided us with a glass of wine for our troubles.

Perfectly situated in the square near many shops, restaurants, and bars. We were able to walk two blocks to the Irish Lion for dinner. In the morning we walked 2-3 blocks to the Uptown Cafe for breakfast and shopped in several boutiques along the way. We arrived late and found meter parking right across the street (free from 9pm to 9am). So we only had to feed the meter once from our phone app in the morning. The hotel was very welcoming and nice.

This is the premier hotel in Bloomington, Indiana. The rooms are clean, lavish, & comfortable. The staff are friendly, hospitable, & ask regularly if anything can be improved. You are pampered & made to feel welcome. We were there over the July 4th weekend & they even provided chairs outside to watch the parade. There is a good restaurant on the premises and parking behind the hotel at $10 daily. Although the rooms are somewhat pricey, it is worth the value.

This is a very nice hotel located in downtown Bloomington. Walking distance from the University, as well as Kirkwood Avenue and many downtown bars and restaurants. The hotel is very clean and modern and my room had a fridge as well as a microwave. The pool, however, is really too small to be called a pool. Don't bother bringing your suit.

The rooms are clean and reasonably decorated. Room costs are reasonable and a good value. The location is excellent within walking distance to a number of restaurants. We prefer... Read more

I stayed at this hotel during my child's two day orientation at IU. It was a place that was recommended to me. Nice hotel and staff very nice. There is a restaurant inside, however I did not visit while there. I did look at the fitness center and pool area but did not use. The pool area seemed to be small and not a place I'd want to be if many were using. I would stay here again.

I have stayed at this hotel at least 2 dozen times and never had an issue. Rooms are clean, staff is friendly. There is nothing particularly special but clean rooms are a deal breaker and they are always above standard, the resturant is solid for bar/hotel food, the staff is always accomodating. Great food within walking distance as well. They get 5* because everything is always above minimum acceptable level, it has never been a problem.

Perfect location for our Son's wedding, being held at the Well House on the University of Indiana campus. You could walk a few blocks to the campus or it was a short shuttle bus ride.

Very nice hotel with exceptional staff. Many of the employees particularly front desk staff are hospitality students at IU and they go above and beyond to provide top notch service. We had a room on a high floor facing College Ave and had no issues with noise but it was a quiet Monday night. The view was nothing special and on a return visit I would probably opt for the ugly but quiet courtyard/garage view to assure a quiet night.

I would definitely give this a 5 for excellent HGI experience. Every HGI should take notes. It was evident from the front desk staff, service providers, and manager that everyone was striving to ensure each and every guest was happy during their stay. This HGI is in the heart of the IU scene and close to everything most people would do in Bloomington. From regular questions from the staff like, "how is your room," "is there anything I can help you find," and "can I get you more bar snacks?... Read more

I like staying at this property because the hotel is in a great location on the Bloomington square with walking distances to many great restaurants. The hotel staff is outstanding!

This hotel was alright. The room cleanliness was average. It almost looked like they didn't really vacuumed the room after the previous guests. The blanket sheet had some stains and the bed sheet was inside out, which made me wonder if some one just flipped it. We asked for both of those to be replaced, and they did. They also accommodated us with a last minute request for a crib. The bathroom was very clean.

When we check-in now, the first thing we do at any hotel is to check our bedding before we settle in. This is because of a bad experience in the past. This time, bedding was stained and we were immediately able to change rooms when calling the front desk. We just think housekeeping is slipping in their duties all across the industry. After the change we had a clean, comfortable room. Rooms are small. Rates are outrageous on weekends. Be prepared!! We did enjoy the breakfast. Even though ... Read more
