Where to stay in Bloomington

Most of the accommodations in Bloomington lie along Interstate 494 with easy access to the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport. The Mall of America lies just south of the airport, so most of the hotels around the airport provide convenient access to the mall as well. Consider staying in one of the hotels on Killebrew Drive, which serves as the mall's southern border, to get away from the interstate.
