Room was great and they have a nice bar. No room service and slooowww elevator. Fast check in but you can't park till you get your room key! Nice area for walking around. You can park outside the structure and walk back but if you want overnight parking you need a key (free parking).

Stayed for 3 nights while on a business trip, this location is fabulous, free ramp parking was an unexpected bonus, so we didn't have to scrape snow off the vehicle!

We had a large comfortable room with 2 beds. The lighting was dim, non-existent by the microwave, mini-frig. We made good use of these appliances as breakfast was not included in the rate. Complementary parking ramp. Staff quickly handled our questions, requests.

We went to Mankato, Mn. to watch Michigan Tech play hockey, used this hotel since is was connected to the arena. What we received was 5 star service for the most competent staff we have encountered in a long time. Kudos to Hilton for doing in right!

The hotel is in downtown Mankato, and the town is very quaint and nice. The hotel was clean and centrally located to everything in town. We really enjoyed our... More

We stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn in Mankato for a conference. Very nice hotel. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and clean. I will definitely return again next year for our conference. The hotel restaurant was excellent.
