“Happy Holidays at the Hampton, Bloomington-Normal!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 December 2012

Our family had a quiet and enjoyable stay over Christmas for 2 nights while we visited family in Bloomington. The hotel was clean, the staff was courteous and we had the pool and hot tub to ourselves. We were very happy with our experience.

Our family of four spent the night at the Hampton Inn while visiting family in Bloomington Illinois this Christmas. Check in was seamless, our room was spotless, and we had a great stay. We had the pool & hot tub to ourselves on Sunday evening, which was unexpected - and very relaxing! The pool temperature was comfortably warm, too :) I enjoyed the fitness room on Monday morning before breakfast (again, had it all to myself - it was like being at a private resort!) Breakfast options were plentiful at the included buffet, and the coffee was good. We'd definitely stay here again.

My family and I just returned from Bloomington, where we spent the night at the Hampton. The young lady at the front desk, that checked us in, I believe her name was Jen. She was very helpful and courteous. She told us everything we needed to know.

Also this morning at breakfast the apple juice had ran out. I informed the young lady, Betty, that is was out. She filled it immediately. She was very gracious that I let her know and made sure we knew that it had been filled. Very polite. We will definitely be returning to this hotel.

A two nights' stay at the Hampton Inn & Suites was about visiting with my daughter and granddaughter. Richard, the manager, remembered from my last review, the suggestion that a stepstool be available for those who need the extra height at the sink. A stepstool was "waiting" for us in the room and it really helped! Every step from check-in to check-out was so delightful, it felt like a vacation in an exotic location!
There is a lavish breakfast every morning available, with an assortment of cereals, coffees, an egg dish such as egg and cheese omelette, muffins, bagels and yogurt and juices. My granddaughter enjoyed her fruit loops, 2 % milk and banana, while I chose the omelette, orange juice and coffee.It was all delicious! Everyone from the the kitchen employees to Richard, the general manager was very attentive and respectful, with genuine smiles that makes people feel truly welcome and glad to be there. If you are going to Normal, Illinois, book this hotel for a "paranormal" experience!

Spent a night here on business. What a nice hotel! The lobby is very inviting and the hotel staff are friendly and welcoming. The breakfast/lounge area is large, bright and extremely clean. You can help yourself to the beverages and fruit provided anytime of the day. The breakfast selections are generous, there is something for everyone (hot and cold) and it's a great start to the day. This cozy area is also great to just watch TV, have a brief business meeting or catch up with a friend. My room was very nice, great linens and bed, bathroom was modern, clean and spacious. I will likely have to travel back to this area on business and this is where I plan to stay. I would recommend this hotel for business and leisure travel, for singles and families alike.

Room Tip: It's a good idea to ask at the desk for a room with a tub, mine had only a shower.

We stayed here as part of our 30 yr ISU dorm floor reunion. The staff was wonderful. Great location, clean, comfortable, microwave and fridge in the room was an added extra.
I would definitely stay there again and recommend it to everyone.

We arrived on a Sunday after an ISU alumni weekend, so our room wasn't ready. They called from the front desk immediately called up to housekeeping to let them know we were there. She apologized profusely for the delay. It was no big deal - we opted to wait in the lobby and watched TV while we waited. They were amazingly fast, as we only waited about 15 minutes before they came to tell us that our room was ready.

Our room was amazing!! We had the two room suite, which was huge. Looking at the hotel layout, it looks as though this is the only room like it in that hotel. This room had the standard mini refrigerator, microwave, and wet bar that we always have in the normal king suite. However, this room has an extra large bathroom with both tub and stand alone shower stall, very large bedroom with desk area, (there is another desk in the living room), AND a half bath off the living room! There was so much room to spread out.

The breakfast was great, as is the norm with Hampton Inns It is located in a shopping area with lots of different restaurants that are close by. I also wanted to recognize Gina at the front desk. She was wonderful to work with and very, very nice!! Great first impression when you walk in!

Room Tip: For a group traveling together, there is an adjoining room off of the living room, so a heads up if...
