I would definetely recommend for both business and pleasure. The restaurant (Olives) was fantastic. Check in and check out were both fast and efficient, excersize room was great, and Internet worked well even on 5th floor.

This is a nice hotel along the river in downtown Mankato. Definitely ask for a room high up that overlooks the river. There is easy access to the downtown area and a nice restaurant on the first floor called Olives (reviewed separately). If you are in Mankato we would definitely recommend this hotel!

After numerous stays at this location, plus having tried other options in Mankato, this is by far the nicest, cleanest, most accommodating hotel in the area. The staff is helpful, the rooms comfortable and the location for anyone doing business or pleasure in Mankato cannot be beat.

This hotel is excellent! Great food, wonderful drinks at the bar, very helpful and attentive bartenders. Check in and out was a breeze. Only draw back was they have a very small pool, so if you are looking for a big pool look somewhere else. I didn't need to use the pool so it didn't matter to me. Would stay... More

Beautiful and fresh hotel with a superior staff that treated us as individuals, not just reservations, and answered our questions about Mankato as if we were friends visiting their city. Try the cheesy potatoes and muffins at breakfast!

I travel to this area frequently for work and have stayed at this hotel several times. Staff and amenities are wonderful. Hotel is newer and very well maintained. The restaurant Olives has incredible food, but their breakfast offerings are a bit expensive for a business expense report.

I am hhonors diamond member for 3 years. Great hotel. This was under construction but unnoticeable to me since I came in at the third floor garage. Ratt and Dokken was at the Arena next door but it was quiet in my room. The attached restaurant was convenient.
