This is not a 5 star hotel in the sense of, say, the Moscow Sheraton Palace or SAS Radisson in St. Petersburg. But I definitely rate the Bloomington Hampton Inn 5 stars on the value/comfort scale.
The hotel's outside is vintage 1970s, and the interior furnishings are a little bit dated too. But the rooms themselves are quiet and the beds are comfortable. I'm a very light sleeper, but I conked out every night and snoozed like a rock. The breakfast is pretty good for its kind, but if you want something more substantial, there is a Denny's on the north side of the motel. Again, this place is QUIET! As I walked out into the hallway to check out, I could hear the kids in the room next to me going nuts. But I hadn't heard a thing while in my room with the door closed.
The staff was unfailingly friendly, from the desk clerk who greeted me at check in, to the guy who held the door for me while I was leaving. Dee at the front desk not only gave me a bandage for my torn fingernail, but managed to put it on in such a way that it stayed on for days! Her restaurant suggestions were also excellent.
The location is also excellent. 5 minutes from the Mall of America, 10 minutes from the airport, and 15 minutes from downtown Minneapolis. I will definitely stay at the Bloomington Hampton Inn again the next time I am in the Twin Cities.
