I traveled weekly to Bloomington-Normal for work for about 18 months and always stayed at this Marriott. I loved the full service (as compared to the nearby Courtyard or Hampton Inn). The staff is professional and courteous.
I liked having access to the concierge lounge as a platinum member, but was somewhat annoyed that I was rarely able to get on the concierge level (as it was always fully booked).
The only other complaint is that sometimes my room was not throughly cleaned. For example on multiple occasions my trash was still full after my room was 'cleaned'. This isn't a deal breaker, but definitely something to make note of.
The location was perfect with plenty of nearby food options (even within walking distance), as you are pretty much right on ISU campus.
If I was back in the area I would stay here.
