This scheme lies at the heart of Aggieville, placing it a short walk from Kansas State University, as well as various dining and shopping options. Nearby sights include Bill Snyder Family Stadium, Bramlage Coliseum, Flint Hills Discovery Center and Fort Riley.

Courtyard Manhattan, led by general manager Tyler Stevens, boasts an innovative lobby space and the brand’s latest contemporary room design, offering hybrid zones for working, sleeping and relaxing, plus mobile check-in and digital keys. During their stay, travellers can also make use of an array of amenities, including a fitness centre and guest laundry.

Meanwhile, both guests and locals can dine in the Bistro and Bistro Bar, serving American-style cuisine, along with Starbucks drinks, cocktails, beer and wines. The hotel also benefits from a terrace with outdoor fire pit and seating area, plus 1,100 sq ft of meeting space.
