Guest Recommendations
"It was a little bit stuffy in the rooms and they wanted to charge for internet access. I think that should be part of the room price."
Verified Guest from Grand Rapids, MN US rated Embassy Suites Bloomington 9 out of 10 on November 29, 2011
Verified Guest from Stevenspoint, WI US rated Embassy Suites Bloomington 10 out of 10 on September 06, 2010
"the last night we were there the parties went on to 3:30 in the am. Very noisy and couldn't sleep. They need to fix the toilet and faucets because all of them leak. The toilet runs because it needs a new fixture. This will save lots of water monthly. the drivers to the mall were soo nice."
