Our team here at the Hilton Garden Inn are thrilled to join other leaders in the city as we move Manhattan forward in the new decade. Partnering with Crossland Construction, the first phase of expanding the Manhattan Conference Center an additional 11,000 sq. ft. went underway just before welcoming in 2020. Ahead of schedule, the expansion space is set to open by late Summer - early Fall which will help welcome individuals from all around to our city and see why we were awarded the #1 walk-able meeting destination in Kansas. As we spend time reflecting on years past, we are eager to see where this next chapter will bring us. The 11,550 sq. ft. addition includes 8,700 sq. ft. of meeting space, including a large 3,375 sq. ft. meeting room and three additional rooms averaging 1,300 sq. ft. When the conference center is configured as one large ballroom, the existing corridor becomes part of the overall grand ballroom for an additional 1,750 sq. ft. +/-. The addition also includes expanding the pre-convention corridors along the new meeting space. This expansion in to be completed by winter 2020.
Rick Huffman, HCW’s President & CEO stated “We are very excited the convention center and hotel have been so successful to warrant this expansion. When complete it will be the best facility and nicest rooms west of Kansas City.”
Following the start of the conference center expansion, construction will begin on expanding the 135 room Hilton Garden Inn. An impressive 40 rooms will be added to the hotel, and a full remodel of the existing rooms and Lobby, making the 175-room hotel the largest in Manhattan, KS.
Project team includes HCW and the City of Manhattan, BRP Architect out of Springfield, MO and Crossland Construction.
