Manhattan isn’t your ordinary downsized meeting location. You’ll learn quickly that our friendly outlook on life captivates our guests. Many small-to-medium meeting places also don’t have the enhancements of a regional airport with daily inbound and outbound flights connecting to Chicago and Dallas. Many of the same places do not possess a vibrant restaurant scene with independently-owned dining locations and our very own dynamic foodie scene.
That makes Manhattan, Kansas – Gateway to the Flint Hills in northeast Kansas – a Midwestern gem with unique charms. Meetings here are well accommodated at spacious and extremely new hotels, with a high percentage closely proximate to restaurant and entertainment districts with nighttime offerings.
