Excellence in Mankato! All aspects of the hotel were great. The rooms were clean, service was quick, the attendants were polite, respect and enjoyable. The restaurant was one of the best restaurants I have ate at for a barain price. The only drawback was the pool was small. However, it was clean and delightful atmosphere.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 1 week ago

I am a Diamond Member with Hilton properties, and I usually have great experiences with Hilton Garden Inn's. My recent stay at the Hilton Garden Inn in Mankato was a confirmation of my loyalty to this brand. I was in town for a conference. Checked-in to my room early, then spent the day working. When I returned to my room...

This hotel is centrally located for all Mankato downtown and old town attractions. You can park your car and walk to anything you need to get to. The Hotel entrance is on what most people would consider the "back-side" of the building so it can be a little hard to find the first time. The signage is very small.

A family trip from a hockey tournament. Nice rooms, not a lot of common space to socialize with other families, very small pool. The hockey team filled the area and not good with handling noise in the pool area. Good place if you are on your own but larger groups struggle. Convenient to the Verizon center and within walking distance...

Staff pleasant, hotel well maintained for most part. Restaurant at hotel tasty. Was expecting an interior with gardens based on name. Entrance hallway from the skyway smelled pretty bad. Also no sign in conference center indicating the way to this hotel.

Hello Margaret, I appreciate your feedback as we continuously work to improve our guest's experience. With that, I will look into the bad smell in the skyway and speak to the Verizon Wireless Center to ensure proper hotel signage is in place.

The exterior signage at the entrance to the hotel features the name of the restaurant (Olives) but not the name of the hotel. We drove around the block before guessing correctly that it was also the entrance to the hotel. Guests have to check in before entering the hotel parking ramp, however there are only three obscure parking spots near...

We had never stayed at this hotel despite being in the Mankato area for business several time. The staff was friendly and the rooms were clean and modern. It was snowing and cold, but convenience to the convention center was excellent thru the skyway system. Wish the bar would have stayed open longer in the evening.

This hotel had a great location to downtown eateries, pubs, and bars. The hotel was clean and rooms were good sized. Being attached to skywalk was a plus. Hotel had a restaurant attached. We didn't go in as it was full but I would take that as a good sign. Attached parking garage was great too.

Great location to downtown activities, restaurants, Verizon center, etc.. Clean, comfortable and dependable--what I would expect from a Hilton property. Very walkable to downtown attractions and a short drive to campus.
