You Gotta Experience the Crown Plaza Bloomington A review of Crowne Plaza Hotel Minneapolis - Airport West Bloomington
Business travelers and family, you won't be dissapointed. I typically stay in Hotels 4 evenings per week in my business travel. I cover a five state area including Minnesota, Michigan, Wisconsin, North Dakota and South Dakota. I have not experienced a more friendly and "feel like your home" hotel than the Crown Plaza in Bloomington. The reception desk personnel, bar and lounge, restaurant, hotel management staff, waiters and chef are all unbelieveably personable and friendly. The first time you stay you will want to come back. The Hotel reception welcomes you with friendly, helpful, knowldegeable staff always asking how can they make your stay better. You have to see the reception desk which is unlike any other as there is a full wall computerized screen to keep you up todate while you check in. It is great for things like the weather with a radar screen providing weather patterns that can actually help you plan your flight arrangements. Additionally you can review highlights of the daily news which come on screen. Don't be surprised if you walk in and actually see a personalized greeting with your name on the board. The main lounge is off the recpetion area with a warm friendly staff where you can sit in front of the fireplace have a drink, read the paper with a large flat screen TV where you can watch all of your favorite sporting events or reality TV shows. You will also be served exceptional tasting food either in the main dining room and or bar/lounge. The rooms are exceptional with large comfortable beds with all of the ammenities you need in this high tech world. You will have availablitly of high speed and wireless connections throughout. They have a large clean swimming pool and spa with a exercise room. Above all the number one thing you will experience is the hotel staff. They have many long term employees and new employees all of whom will make it a point to get to know you and introduce you to other guests. I have been staying at this hotel almost weekly for about 7 years and would not stay at another hotel along the Bloomington 494 area. There is no reason to as you have it all at this crown Plaza. I see a lot of familiar faces on each stay which backs up my own experience and feelings about the Crown Plaza.
The hotel was under remodeling for about 7 to 8 months this past year at which time it closed. I had to find another hotel in the area and I could not wait to return. The main reason was the accommodating staff they employ. So, go see for your self and do what I do. Tell everyone you see about the great experience.
