    We have a very nice experience working with Cynthia at the Courtyard Marriott in Mankato, MN. She was responsive and helpful with many details including other vendor recommendations. We stopped by when it was decorated for another wedding and was sold on the space. We had 185 guests and we heard positive reviews from them as well.
