We have experienced a number of unfortunate delays in processing room requests with the Double Tree.
In the next few weeks, those with Double Tree room requests will receive a confirmation email from the Double Tree for your actual room reservation. Once you receive that confirmation, please be sure to contact the Double Tree and guarantee your room. You can do so via credit card and nothing will be charged to your credit card until you check out. NOTE: If you do not guarantee your room, your reservation may be cancelled without notice.
If you use a debit card, the hotel will pre-authorize the amount of your stay when you check in, and those funds will not be available to you. This is standard hotel procedure. Also note that if you guarantee the room via credit or debit card, and abandon your reservation without calling to cancel, the hotel will charge the first night’s stay. This too is standard hotel procedure.
If you have not heard from the Double Tree by May 5, 2013, please contact us and we will investigate for you.

When making a reservation at the Hilton Gardens, please be sure to let them know the reservation code of CONVERGENCE (HGIB).
Please be aware that any decorations or signs in the guestrooms must be attached to the wall with Scotch 3M #2080 Safe-Release Painter’s Tape.
This can be picked up at most hardware/home repair stores for about $7/roll. It is the painter’s tape with the orange label on the inside.
In the past guests were allowed to use regular beige masking tape. We have tested the masking tape several times on the grey painted areas of the hotel and the beige masking tape pulls up the paint job.
If a guest uses anything other than the approved Scotch 3M #2080 Safe-Release Tape and the grey painted areas of the guestroom are affected, then an engineer will need to assess the room for damages and the guest registered to the room will be charged. This includes 3M Command Hooks; these also pull up the paint job.
DoubleTree by Hilton Bloomington – Minneapolis South
This tape is to be used in place of the beige masking tape and is the ONLY tape to use. Signage attached with any other tape, even this tape in different colors, will be removed and disposed.
