Highly recommend this hotel. Customer service is exceptional. We were made to feel very welcome. Our Lakeview room was nice & bright with a great view of the Aerial Lift Bridge. Enjoyed the continental breakfast & afternoon coffee & cookies. Easy walk across the bridge to plenty of shopping & restaurants. Will definitely stay here again if we are back... More

We stayed here while on a winter get a way. The staff was very nice and accommodating to all of our needs. We had a problem with the TV in our room and they switched us to another room. I liked the fact that there is not a long hallway to go through. Convenient parking.

Recently stayed here after reading trip advisor reviews. This was a quiet stay, easy access to lots of Duluth. It was winter, so we weren't walking anywhere but it would be an easy walk across the lift bridge to restaurants. The rooms were clean, quiet and the staff very nice. Would stay there again!

This place is beautiful and a little piece of heaven away from home. I have never in my life seen a more beautiful yet peaceful establishment. Again, feels like a piece of heaven away from our home.I would recommend any one I know to stay in this gorgeous place.

We love this hotel! It is so nicely designed and comfortable, and the staff is exceptional. The views are lovely and the location is perfect. We walked to canal park for shopping and dinner, and it was great - even in Duluth in January!

My boyfriend and I spent last weekend at this hotel and I cannot say enough positive things about it! We went with the suite and it was such a treat to have a fireplace and whirlpool in our room. We were in room 201 and had such a great view of the lift bridge and the water, even for being... More

This is a very nice place to stay while in Duluth. It is privately owned and the owners are often present. The front desk staff was friendly and courteous. Our room (#502) was comfortable, and well maintained. The room included a coffee maker, small refrigerator, whirlpool tub and a gas fireplace. They have wi-fi but in our room it did... More

Our visit was brief; we stayed only one night as our destination was the ice caves. That being said, the rooms are very clean, bright and very comfortable. The thread count as well as bathroom towels were above average. The morning we were to check out my car wouldn't start and the receptionist was nice enough to call Dale (one... More
