MANKATO, MN -- (Marketwired) -- 05/02/14 -- Of course it's always an honor to be nominated, but for the Courtyard Mankato, winning a 2013 Platinum Award from Marriott Hotels was both recognition and confirmation of a job well done.
This business hotel in Mankato ranked in the top 5% of 897 Courtyard hotels around the world based on guest satisfaction surveys and its rating on Trip Advisor as the number one hotel in Mankato -- none of which would be possible without the outstanding performance and dedication of the staff.
"This is a very exciting accomplishment for the hotel and our associates," Preston Lougheed, general manager, says. Adding to the award are the hotel's first quarter standings for 2014, which place it among the top 2% of all Courtyard properties worldwide.
Being at the top means these Mankato, Minnesota meeting rooms offer more than the standard stay, and guests get cutting-edge and comfort in one convenient location. The property is the first LEED certified hotel in Minnesota, featuring a sustainable design that includes more than 190 locally made solar panels. Its state-of-the-art lobby offers a flexible space to meet, eat, work and relax, with The Bistro at its heart. The new dining concept offers casual seating, healthy, quality food for breakfast and dinner, and snacks, wine, beer and Starbucks® coffee for a quick pick-up. The Market offers snacks, beverages and sundries 24 hours a day to accommodate every Traveler's own schedule.
As a popular business hotel, the Courtyard Mankato also offers full-service catering and modern event space, with a large ballroom and outdoor courtyard for meetings, weddings and social functions.
