Very Clean and Lots of Fun! A review of Radisson Hotel Bloomington by Mall of America
We were pleasantly surprised upon checking into the Grand Lodge and Waterpark. I was traveling with my 12 year old, 16 year old and his 17 year old friend. the kids had a blast in the waterpark. There was such a good variety of things for them to do. It also offers a specific area for little ones to play; my sister joined us one day with her toddler, who also had a blast. The website package prices are a great deal, especially if you have AAA. The waterpark only admission is a little steep at $24.95 and $15.95 for observers, but included with some package prices, it is a great deal. We enjoyed the hotel restaurant for both breakfast and lunch; the hotel offers a buffet breakfast at a nice price, and the pizzas for lunch are great! There is also a coffee shop, and a "fast food" style eatery within the park that we did not get to try. Our room was very spacious, everything was brand new. We had a king size bed, a pull out sofa, and a bunk bed, so the room can easily sleep a lot of people, and did not feel cramped at all. I do recommend that you pick a room not facing the waterpark. noise was not a big problem as the doors are quite soundproof, but the waterpark lights stay on until 12am and the cutains are not the blackout type. You also have no clue what it is like outdoors from that side of the hotel. The hotel also offers a nice lounge for the parents to relax in with a full bar, as well as 24 hour workout facilities and a full service spa, all very close to the Mall of America. I would definitely recommend this hotel, and would likely stay here again upon retuning to Minnesota.
