Tis hotel is clean, comfortable, quiet and all just a nice place to stay generally. We're in town for a family function, and this was a great place to relax. The beds and linings were very comfortable, and e air conditioning system was just right. Other places we've stayed in Mankato, haven't been up to e same quality level as this hotel. Rooms and bathrooms a big and functional.

Dear Mr. TrevorNYC_11

I appreciate the review you were so nice to write on Trip Advisor!

I am pleased you found our hotel of high quality and you were able to relax while staying with us We do take great pride in our beds presentation and upkeep because ultimately it is a very important factor for travelers when staying at a hotel, getting sleep. I agree with you I love air conditioning and what we do is keep our filters extremely clean so you get clean, fresh air every time you check into our hotel.

Thanks for the recommendation!

I've always thought of these "type" of hotels to kind of be all the same. To some extent that's right, but there are some aspects that make a difference. This hotel is one of those. The rooms are quite comfortable, reminding me more of a hilton level. That was a nice surprise, though nothing to put it over the top. What made the most difference for me was the real friendliness of the staff members. From the front desk to the patio/bar area, the folks seemed genuinely eager to please and quite friendly. Almost took me off guard actually.

Overall very pleasant simple stay. There was even a wedding during our stay, but barely noticed it. One word of warning is there's no free continental breakfast or anything, so be prepared to pay a bit for morning food.

Room Tip: we were fairly near the elevator (3rd floor), but still quiet and very convenient. Elevator a bit s...

Dear Mr. C,

I have read your review of our hotel and was excited that a guest who travels often found our staff to be very friendly, this is what we call the Spirit to Serve. We appreciate our guest whether here for business, a tournament a wedding etc. because without our guest we would not have the jobs we do. Marriott brands of hotels have many concepts and at Courtyard we offer made to order breakfast the way you like it hot fresh and delivered to your table. If you were not aware you can order anything as little as a side of toast, banana or an entire breakfast with eggs, bacon, potatoes and toast. Please introduce yourself the next time you stay with us and I would love to have you try the Sunrise Starter for breakfast which is my favorite on the house.

Thanks for your business and we hope to have you as our guest in the near future!

Sincerely,

Preston Lougheed
General Manager

I really appreciate the upscale, quiet, comfortable accommodations this new Courtyard By Marriott provides me while working in the Mankato area! It is spotless clean, the rooms are spacious, great work spaces are provided throughout the hotel in and out of the guest rooms, cozy bedding, and the glass doored showers in the King Suite are a retreat! Plus, there are friendly smiles quick to serve! All this right next to River Hills Mall! Courtyard By Marriott is Mankato's finest!

Hello WNatsha,

I hope your able to stay cool during these dog days of summer!

I read your review you were kind enough to share with Trip Advisor and their followers and It felt good to read but even felt better to share this review with our staff. Other than the location and of course the strong Marriott name our associates are what makes this hotel and it is rewarding when a customer takes the time to share their experience with others.

Thank you-Thank you- Thank you for your business and we can’t wait to see you on your next visit!

Much appreciated!

the elevator was painfully slow but the property was clean and modern and the room was really comfortable. the outdoor patio was a nice place to relax with a glass of wine (and they had a great selection from CA), a book and friends. i didn't go to the pool/spa but i liked that they were open 24hrs a day.

the bed was comfortable, the room was dark and quiet, the bathroom was huge and really clean. the wifi connection in the room was easy to access and use.

breakfast choices were plentiful and reasonably priced. it was nice to have starbucks coffee available BUT i didn't like that they automatically put the coffee in a to go cup. i was eating in and could have easily used a mug and not a paper cup.

Room Tip: the elevator is painfully slow (in a 3 floor hotel mind you) so maybe ask for a room on the 1st floo...

Green Features: see above for my comment on the coffee cups. otherwise, there was plentiful signage for reusing towels and sheets. that made me happy.

Dear harbss,

To have a Top Contributor rate us so high is very gratifying-Thank you for your business and for the time it took you to write the review.

I'm glad to hear you enjoyed the patio and our wine selection in the Bistro. I was also pleased to hear you found the room very comfortable and spacious. I do agree with you and wish our elevator was faster and I will pass your comments onto our corporate office. In regards to the coffee we are following brand standards and are not allowed to offer real coffee cups as an option, so please accept my apologies.

If you find you way from California again we hope to see you at our hotel.

Safe travels,

We stayed here during a softball tournament in New Ulm. Beautiful hotel, helpful staff. Despite being very busy (Softball Tournament guests and a Wedding), they offered to place us next to another family we were travelling with. Rooms were nice, location is good, not complaints!

This is a beautiful hotel! The rooms are very spacious and the beds are an A+ for comfort!! The swimming pool and hot tub were very relaxing after a long day and we had it all to ourselves! The Bistro offered a nice variety of breakfast sandwiches and they were delicious! Then to top it all off..... They served Starbucks coffee!!! Nothing like sitting in a booth with my OWN T.V eating my breakfast and drinking my Venti Carmel Macchiato!! We will definitely be back!!! Thanks Marriott for a great nights sleep and the best weekend ever!!!

Anytime someone gives someone else an A+ the experience most have been extremely positive - so thank you for the nice rating but more importantly thank you for staying with us!

We do proudly serve Starbucks 24 hours a day and I agree the Carmel Macchiato are delicious and one of my favorites as well. We look forward to having you as our guest again in the future or stop by anytime for a hotel cup of coffee.

With family in Mankato, it's great to have such a wonderful hotel in the area. The pool and hot tub were terrific and just right for us. Our room was beautiful and very comfortable. We were made to feel welcome and staff went out of their way to be sure we had a pleasant stay. We will definately be back!

Room Tip: If you enjoy the pool and exercise room, be sure to request a room nearby.
