Confused about the hotel!

so we were looking at Sheraton Midtown but the reviews werent great so we were considering aloft. however, that is also not working out for some reason and is no longer an option. we are left with Sheraton Bloomington. ive been trying to do some research but dont see anything regarding the light rail station near Sheraton Bloomington. Can someone please help me regarding this? what is the nearest light rail station? how far is the hotel from the station? how to go to the hotel from MSP?

thanks for your help

There is no stop next to the hotel. The light rail does not run across the whole metro area. To get to the hotel you would need to take the light rail from the airport to MOA (approx 10 minutes) and then transfer to a 540 bus which will bring you along 78th street, which is what the Sheraton is on (approx 20 minutes)

FYI you can go to the Metro Transit site metrotransit.org and use their "trip planner" option to look up info like this.

Are you choosing hotels based off SPG points?

If so, consider The W or Westin downtown.

How did Bloomington become part of your choices?

Could you elaborate how Aloft was no longer working for you after several of us posters guided you from the Sheraton Midtown?
