The Inn was wonderful in many ways! First of all, as I was trying to decide what to do, I did the "hotel chat" twice, and Carolyn answered me both times. She was so informative about The Inn AND went the extra mile to help me with questions about Duluth and our planned trip up the North Shore. I got... More

We stayed at this property for 2 nights. The location is within walking distance of boutiques, great restaurants and breweries. There are beautiful views from a few different directions/room locations including the lake/lighthouses and of course the Aerial Lift Bridge. The best amenities? Breakfast. It's included! Don't miss it. VERY well done and well attended. Beautiful view! One word: yum.... More

Between the room with a balcony overlooking the Lake, the s'mores, the pool/sauna/hot tub, the location near so many fun shops and restaurants, the Inn is a perfect get-a-way spot for families. We return yearly for the experience and also to take day trips to Gooseberry Falls, the point, and other beaches and local attractions.

We came for a family trip and chose our room type because when in Duluth you must have Lakeview! The room was clean, modern, and spacious. The room has a fridge, microwave, and a balcony with seating. The staff are very friendly and catering. We enjoyed our stay at the Inn!

At this Canal Park inn, you get first-class accommodations and the most awesome views of Lake Superior and Duluth Harbor. From the moment you walk into the lobby, you feel the gracious ambience of a continental hotel, yet you also feel the comforts of being at home. The Inn is my favorite place to stay!

What a wonderful hotel. I have nothing negative to say about this hotel. The staff was friendly and accommodating. The nightly s'more bar was a great idea. It's a fantastic hotel for both couples and families.
