The Courtyard by Marriott in Aggieville was the site of a Manhattan Area Chamber of Commerce ribbon cutting Thursday evening.

McNeill Hotel Company CEO Mark Ricketts tells KMAN there was so much that made sense when the company was approached about building on the former city-owned parking lot along Bluemont Avenue.

Ricketts says the hotel sold out for last weekend’s game against Nevada and is already on mark for bettering it’s expected income by the end of next month.

The hotel includes a parking garage after being built on a former city-owned parking lot. Ricketts says it offered some design challenges.
