Branson, MO (PRWEB) July 18, 2010
The city of Manhattan, Kansas, and HCW, LLC, a real estate development company, are excited to announce they have begun construction of a new Hilton Garden Inn Hotel & Conference Center. Both the hotel and conference center will be located along South 3rd Street, just off Route 18 in the Downtown Entertainment District of Manhattan. The upscale, 135-room Hilton Garden Inn will be connected to a 30,000 square foot conference center. This project is part of Manhattan’s South End Redevelopment Project and is scheduled for completion Fall 2011. The hotel will be managed by Kinseth Hospitality Corporation (KHC), an Iowa based hotel development and management company.
“HCW Manhattan, LLC is proud to be a partner with the City of Manhattan on what will be the finest conference center and hotel in all of Northern Kansas. We look for this entire project to be a huge success for the City of Manhattan,” says Richard E. Huffman, CEO - HCW Manhattan, LLC.
The full-service hotel and conference center will be the premium meeting facility in Manhattan. The Conference Center will feature flexible meeting space, the latest audio visual services, and professional catering for events with up to 1000 guests. The modern design of the conference center will create a unique atmosphere for event guests. A variety of colored, energy-efficient, LED ceiling lights in meeting rooms and light boxes in the grand hall will be interchanged to enhance the mood of each event. The Conference Center anticipates accepting event reservations starting this Fall.
Bruce Kinseth, Vice President - Kinseth Hospitality states, “We are delighted to partner with HCW and the City of Manhattan in the development of this high quality hotel. We believe the hotel and conference center will be very successful given the continued growth in the commercial development of Manhattan. This project signifies the city’s long-term commitment to the success of their convention and tourism industry.”
The Hilton Garden Inn Manhattan South Hotel & Conference Center will connect to a three-tier, 440-space parking garage via a climate-controlled indoor walkway. The new Manhattan Conference Center garage will have the area’s first state of the art energyefficient LED lighting. Outside and across the street from the hotel & conference center, the city plans to add landscaping, sidewalks, streetscaping, decorative lighting, and an outdoor water feature.
Also new to the third street corridor will be the Flint Hills Discovery Center scheduled to open Spring 2012, featuring exhibits as early as April 2012.
