Inexpensive and Convienent A review of Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites Bloomington / Airport / Mall of America
The Hospitality Inn and Suites, Bloomington, MN was inexpensive and offered convenient access to the Mall of America and the interstate (to Minneapolis and St. Paul). The HIS offers the budget family traveler a safe and clean alternative to more expensive hotels or the often questionable quality of other budget motels/inns/suites.
While the hotels exterior is reminiscent of drab-boxy Russian 70s-90s Russian hotel/government building architecture, overall the HIS is a bargain for the money ($45 a night Sunday-Thursday). If you're looking for a place close to the crass commercialism that is the Mall of America, if you are on a family road trip simply seeking a place to sleep comfortably, or if you want to save your vacation dollars for souvenirs and not accommodation amenities then the HIS is a welcome deal for the family traveler.
