The Hilton Garden Inn was very comfortable, very quiet, and the restaurant has some of the best food I've had in a while. The staff/bartenders/food servers were very friendly and accommodating... I look forward to visiting again.

Will be back. Room was quiet and food at Olive's is great. Only complaint I have is that there was a dumpster pick up at 5:30 AM which woke me up. Other than that I enjoy staying at this property. Just remember to take your room key with you in order to leave the parking ramp. If you don't you... More

Parking is at adjacent city garage. Need to park several levels up, go down to ground level, cross street to hotel entrance. So not easy to get back into hotel, no skywalk to hotel. No complimentary breakfast.

Thanks you for choosing to stay with us and for your comments. As the parking structure is owned by the city we are only issued a limited number of Hilton spots in the ramp, and they are located between the 2nd and 3rd levels. There is ample parking in the structure, but make sure to not park in the "RESERVED"... More

Hilton properties are the best. I always look forward to staying in Hilton properties. This location provided excellent service and the employees were always smiling, happy and friendly. Thanks for making my stay away from home a very pleasant experience.

This is a high quality hotel in a good location. Rooms are clean and quiet. The restaurant on site is good but pricey. There are better restaurants in walking distance for same or less money. I stayed here before and would stay again.

Room was clean and comfortable - though a little dark. Front desk staff were amazingly nice both when I called directly to make my reservation as well as when I checked in. This hotel is right downtown Mankato so you have access to everything from grocery stores to fast food to many other dining options - including Olives - which... More

Our stay at the Hilton Garden Inn was going just fine, up until Sunday August 24th around 2:30 AM. My girlfriend and I were returning back to the hotel from being downtown, and were appalled to see a guy power washing air duct vents near the garage entrance/lobby entrance. Our room is on the seventh floor, and was directly above... More

Thank you for your review and for letting us know how your stay with us was. Although the service that was performed was necessary and unaviodable, the response you received was completely unacceptable and very unprofessional. We specialize in customer service, and anything less then creating an outstanding customer experience is a failure on the part of this property. I... More

I've stayed at this hotel many times in the past and haven't had an issue. Recently, I was in need of a late notice place to stay. It was after midnight when I booked the room, so I didn't reserve it for the day prior, but needed it that very night. After getting a taxi from a neighboring town, I... More

Wasn't thrilled with the 'adjustable' beds, but was a clean enough room. Very quiet hotel, nicely appointed. Clean laundry and fitness rooms. Very attentive staff, always willing to help out and extremely friendly. Surprised that breakfast was not included with the room rate, but it happens I guess.
