HCW LLC and the City of Manhattan, KS have begun construction on an additional 11,550 SF of convention space to the current 30,000 SF Hilton Garden Manhattan Conference Center. The development is located along South 3rd Street, just off Route 18 in the Downtown Entertainment District of Manhattan, KS.
The 11,550 SF addition includes 8,700 SF of meeting space, including a large 3,375 SF meeting room and three additional rooms averaging 1,300 SF. 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 SF +/-. The addition also includes expanding the pre-convention corridors along the new meeting space. This expansion in to be completed by winter 2020.
