The Hilton Garden Inn is a Hilton brand hotel located in downtown Bloomington on the corner of College Avenue and 7th Street. It is in the location previously occupied by the front half of the old Regester Parking Garage. The address of the hotel is 245 North College Avenue and their phone number is 812-331-1335. The hotel opened on Thursday April 13th, 2006.

The Hotel has 168 guestrooms including 4 suites. There is over 5000 square feet of divisible meeting and banquet space to accomodate up to 350 guests.

For years prior to the construction of this hotel, there was questionability as to whether there would be enough of a market for a second upper class hotel downtown. At one point, Holiday Inn was considering putting a hotel in this location, but they pulled out. The Hilton has been fairly popular in its first year.
