Indiana Memorial Union Biddle Hotel and Conference Center
Ranked #5 of 24 Hotels in Bloomington
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 December 2013

If you are travelling to Bloomington for the first time, you probably already know that the town's centerpiece is Indiana University, and the center of Indiana University is the Indiana Memorial Union. The Union's Biddle Hotel and Conference Center is the best place to stay in Bloomington, period. Within five minute's walk there are numerous restaurants, coffee shops, bars and general shopping. Kirkwood Avenue, which runs east-west adjacent to the west end of the Union and the Sample Gates, will take you there. Nature lovers will love meandering around and through the campus; it's worth the price of admission alone. Enjoy.

Enjoyed our time here. The service we very good. The room was very clean. The overall facilities was very good. My husband really liked the coffee which is very important to him. You do need to put in balance bars or security bars in the tub area.

If you LOVE Indiana University, you've got to stay here at least once! The hotel is part of the Indiana Memorial Union which has every amenity you can think of (from bookstore to bakery to bowling alley). Brings back so many wonderful memories of my years as a student at IU. Beautiful view of the campus from our room and easy access to walking through the campus, IU Art Museum and Auditorium are both just a short distance away. Convenient parking at lot adjacent to hotel. There's a mid-grade fitness center on the Lobby level for guest use.
Unfortunately, on this trip, because the campus was closed for the semester break, many of the businesses in the Union were closed as well.

Room Tip: Ask for a courtyard room to get the best view of campus.

The hotel is clean and historic with beautiful tile in the bathroom. Our bed was comfortable and the staff were very accommodating. We needed adjoining rooms, and they fulfilled our request. Great deal

It has always been a pleasure to stay at this outstanding IU facility. Thank you for your warm, friendly service. We requested no fragrancies used in cleaning and were told at check in that our request was sent to housekeeping. This is an important issue with us as my wife is very sensitive to strong cleaning agents and fragrancies. The rooms have always been perfect over our many years visiting IU.

We came to town for our daughter's IU Commencement. We came in after 8 pm and left before 8 am. Everything went smoothly, check-in, room nice, check-out. Parking is convenient. Enjoyed the accommodation.

This is a great facility and nice hotel. Best location for easy walking to events at IU. Old time hotel charms with plenty of modern touches. Our stay was made even better because we chose to stay at the Union.
