“Excellent Stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

Very nice new Hotel- It was very clean and the staff were most helpful and friendly. I would highly recommend this to any business or leisure traveler. Plus, the rates were great for a brand new hotel and a Marriott hotel!

Thanks

Was on business trip and lucky I chose this hotel!! Checked in was quick and fast especially after long hours of flight to get here. Really pleasant with the condition of the room. Super super clean. Bed was really comfortable, had to drag myself out for my work the next morning (in a good way) due to the high level of comfort the room offers. Nothing to complain about. Really a nice hotel with modern feelings. Had microwave in the room and coffee machine which was excellent! Would recommend to anyone visiting Mankato. Staff was friendly and helpful especially the guy from the cafe.

Room Tip: I believe any rooms in this hotel would satisfy just about anyone...

Hello AzrinPMJ -

We are so pleased you liked our bedding package and found the condition of our hotel to your liking. Even though we are brand new we take cleanliness very seriously and our housekeepers take pride in their work and your comments confirm that. I will share you review with the entire housekeeping department and I'm confident it will make their day!

Our Bistro where you can EAT.Drink & Connect otherwise known as our cafe serves breakfast, dinner, beer, wine & cocktails is our in house restaurant. I will also pass along your comments to the staff there.

Thanks for choosing the Courtyard by Marriott.

You can definitely tell this was a new hotel. We decided to stop in Mankato, on our random road trip this summer. The GPS was leading us to Fairfield Inn, but I decided to stop at Courtyard instead. It was a little tricky getting to the place, I had to drive around a shopping mall, going on a hunch (I'm sure there was an easier way, but I went by "sight"). I think this is the first time we stayed in a NEW hotel. The rooms were very nice, comfy beds, roomy bathroom... The kids loved that we were just a couple doors down from the pool and spent a good amount of time there. It was SO nice to sleep in a room where you couldn't here all the comings and goings of other guests, as well. We would definitely stay here again.

Dear Michelle B,

Thank you for choosing the Courtyard by Marriott on your recent visit to Mankato, MN. Our hotel is not even 11 months old and just as everyone likes a new car, I'm glad to hear you liked the new hotel! Compared to a traditional Courtyard we expanded the pool and whirlpool area and upgraded our outdoor area for more soft seating and green space. We are very family friendly and love children here. Please tell your friends and family to consider our Hotel if needing lodging in the area.

Enjoy the rest of summer!

As a business leader, we use hotels all the time. We were all very impressed with the level of detail the hotel staff exemplified. The friendly and professional service, the food, the facilities and the flexibility were all excellent. And the outdoor area impressed our clients with the water feature, fireplace and well appointed furniture. We will be using the Marriott a lot more. Tim

Dear Tim S.

Courtyard is a hotel brand built by business travelers for business travelers and were excited to hear that our facility met and exceeded your expectations. Our outdoor Courtyard is the only of its kind in the Greater Mankato area and I pleased you and your clients enjoyed yourselves in that space.

Thank you for choosing our hotel!

We stayed here in May of this year for 2 of my best friends wedding. We live outside of Mankato a few miles, but still always choose to stay in a hotel for weddings. This is by far the nicest hotel in Mankato, brand new. We have stayed at other Courtyard's before and this is no different. Excellent clean room, nice decor, beatiful bar and lobby. The only complaint I can think of is from the bride and groom, not from me. If you are thinking of having a wedding here, be sure and be frank with the bar staff!!!! Promised the couple 2 kegs of Busch Light and then 2 kegs of an imported beer, I can't remember the name.. the 4 kegs were paid for bu they didn't have taps for the other beer. Then they told the couple they would swap out another 2 kegs of Busch Light in exchange, even though busch light was WAY less expensive. Also they wouldn't serve wedding guests until the bride and groom arrived at the reception...?! and made the GROOM go to the BACK OF THE LINE at the bar at the reception! I was shocked! He PAID for it! I am hoping that due to the newness of this hotel and ballroom they were just learning and taking things easy, but I know they were very dissapointed in that. But from me, again the hotel stay was great and I reccomend!

Dear dreay,

Thank you for your response on Trip Advisor. We always value feedback from our guests whether staying in our hotel or attending an event in our Event Center. I was not aware of the issues stated, I will certainly look into these issues and make sure they never happen again. This is certainly not Marriott Standard. We strive to make sure that we achieve excellent service, and unfortunately we may have fell short in that area. Thank you for bringing this to our attention.
I am glad you enjoyed the wedding you attended and we hope to see you in the future.

Kind Regards,

Rachel Mattison
Sales & Events Manager

Our frequent travels to see family members brought us to Mankato and we again enjoyed the service and atmosphere at this property. We stayed in an upper room this time and enjoyed the modern decor and the clean facilities. The room was well-appointed and the front desk staff were friendly and called us by name several times during our check-in.

We did not eat a meal here and the only sub-standard event during the stay involved the Starbucks staff who had some difficulty creating a regular coffee with steamed skim milk. After several failed attempts, my wife finally received her coffee and off we went. We will always stay at this property, it is the very best in this community!

Room Tip: We love the upper floors!

Dear GOmaha,

Anytime a guest stays a second or more nights at any hotel it is a strong indicator that they enjoyed their previous stay. All of our associates really appreciate your repeat business and look forward to having you as our guest again and again.

We have had some turnover in our Baristas and I can ensure you we are learning and getting better every day and do appreciate feedback we get from our guest to improve your Starbucks experience.

Thanks for your feedback and your business!

Stayed at the Mankato Courtyard by Marriott in Mankato, MN last weekend for a wedding reception that was at the hotel. We had a double queen room. The hotel room was very nice and modern in this new hotel. The staff was friendly and fun. Beds were comfortable and clean. Glad that there was a small refrigerator and coffee maker in our room. Will definately stay again. Walking distance to the Mankato shopping mall.

Room Tip: My room overlooked the courthyard.
