Nice new hotel in Mankato. Great service. Very friendly front desk staff. Had a drink at the bar and the bartender was pleasant, and nice to chat with. Good breakfast, and they have Starbucks coffee! Room was clean and bed was comfy. One of the best options for staying in Mankato.

Our daughter's wedding reception was only the third one at this new hotel. The staff was wonderful, the food was very, very good and Carmen Sook, Mariott Wedding Planner, was so great to work with as was Mona Mokoff, Event Manager. They listened to what we were hoping for and they delivered. The family members and friends that stayed over said the rooms were very clean, the beds very comfortable and the staff very accommodating. They really care about you and their friendliness is genuine. I would recommend this facility to anyone planning a wedding, banquet, conference or just needing a place to stay. The lobby area is so comfortable and there are so many gathering areas for either large groups to sit and visit or smaller more intimate conversational areas. Very well thought out.

Very impressed with the friendly helpful staff! They even offered to take our luggage up to the room! Our room was very nice and the bed was comfy. The room's floor plan was well thought out, with a table on rollers that slides in under the desk, access to plug ins for your phone or pc and having a shower instead of a bathtub. The event center and courtyard are laid out to accomodate events small or large! Very modern look and yet a very welcome feeling when you walk into the hotel.

Room Tip: I did not eat at the restaurant or see the swimming pool area so I rated them average, although I he...

Very excited about this new hotel. I usually visit the area about once a year to visit friends and have been disappointed in the lodging choices up until now! This is a great property, staff is awesome and the rooms are really great. Love the layout. Did not use the pool or fitness center, but both looked nice. There is a great patio space that would be wonderful to hangout in during the summer months and even in the cooler months, there was a patio fireplace that looked very inviting.
The only thing that i thought was not the best, was the speed of the elevators, i found them to be very slow and often chose to just take the stairs instead of waiting.
Overall, i am so excited to have this new option in the Mankato area and would highly recommend.

Just completed a two night stay in this very impressive hotel. Given that it just recently opened, everything is impeccably clean and modern. Our room was equipped with a small fridge and microwave. The beds were very comfortable with multiple pillow options. There was plenty of closet and drawer space for storage. The bathroom felt a little small, although the shower was pretty big with a nice full-flow shower head. Water temps were always perfect. Highway noise was noticeable but not a big problem. I cannot comment on neighboring room noise as the place was pretty empty both nights we stayed. The Bistro was very convenient serving light breakfast and diner choices. The full bar was also a plus! Prices were inline with what you'd expect to pay for the convenience. My burger was just OK but everything else we ate was good. Service was very prompt and friendly. The pool was somewhat small but the whirlpool was fairly large (although a bit cooler than we prefer). Both the indoor and outdoor common areas were very nice! The outdoor fireplace was a cool feature. The hotel is next door to the River Hills Mall and about a five minute drive to downtown and ten minutes to the MSU campus.

Room Tip: Rooms facing south would probably have less road noise from the nearby highway.
