Mall of America
Mall of America Offers Hotel Guests Shopping, Dining and Entertainment
Right across from the Country Inn & Suites in Bloomington, the 4.8-million-square-foot Mall of America boasts over 500 stores, 50 restaurants, a 14-screen movie theater and seven nightclubs. Set aside a few days to explore this massive complex, where you can experience thrilling rides, live comedy shows, an aquarium and endless shopping options, all under one roof. Enjoy tax-free shopping at clothing stores like Macy’s, bebe, Gap and lululemon, and then let the kids burn off some energy at the Nickelodeon Universe theme park. While the hotel's location next to the Mall of America is convenient, hotel guests love the complimentary shuttle even more since it makes it easy to get all those heavy shopping bags back to their comfortable accommodation.
