My honey surprised me for our one year anniversary... and boy was I surprised! This place is absolutely remarkable, especially the views we had from our balcony! We really enjoyed that we were within walking distance of everything we wanted to see and do. I recommend this place for couples looking for a nice get-away, although it is quite expensive.

This was a great hotel. The staff do a great job at keeping the rooms neat and clean. The decor is very cozy. We always look for a place with a nice pool and enjoyed this one as well as the hot tub. It was nice they had a cash bar and app's in the early evening. We slept in... More

Happy to hear you noticed our new lobby décor. We will be finishing completion of our lobby renovations this week after the new carpeting will be installed. Also glad to hear you were able to take time to enjoy our fire pit and patio expansion that was new as of last summer. We look forward to your return visit. More

Canal Park Lodge is a great little place just as you enter Canal Park. There are several hotels and restaurants clustered together here with stunning views of Lake Superior. The lobby is really stunning with the look and feel of a traditional lodge. Nice stone fireplace, vaulted ceilings, and a breakfast area where they serve a full spread each morning.... More

I stayed here while on a business trip to Duluth. The property is well maintained and is in a nice setting, right on the shore of Lake Superior. There are great views of the lake and city from the rooms facing the lake. Upon check in the staff was very friendly and accommodating. I had a third floor room (no... More

I had a great stay at the Canal Park Lodge. The staff is very nice and accommodating. The swimming pool is warmer than most and has lots of windows around it. The breakfast is really good and offers something for everyone. The best hot continental breakfast around! We were able to check into our room early. The rooms are clean... More

I have stayed in Canal Park on many occasions, but have never tried this hotel before. I was pleasantly surprised at how excellent it was. The lobby has a comfortable, relaxed feel to it and the service is prompt and friendly. The rooms are spacious and clean. There is a microwave and a refrigerator in the rooms. The wifi is... More

This hotel went ABOVE my expectations. Our suite was overlooking Lake Superior and was furnished with an amazing whirpool tub, large comfy bed, huge bathroom and a refrigerator. It was so relaxing, my husband and I stayed in our suite one of our evenings there, just relaxing in the whirpool with a bottle of wine. The staff was wonderful and... More

We have used this place for 5+ years now and although it truly excels at nothing, it never fails to get 4 out of 5 in all the things that matter to us. Very friendly, welcoming, decent rooms, lovely lounges, great location and fine value for money (if you choose your dates right). I was heading north up from Tennessee... More

My family loves to stay in this hotel whenever we visit Duluth. The proximity to the Canal Park shopping is wonderful. The hotel is also right next to Canal Park Brewing Company which has good food. My husband and I upgraded to a Whirlpool suite upon check in. The suite was gorgeous and worth the additional money. It had a... More

Nice and clean and very close to the 'action' in Canal Park. It is a tad pricy, but the location makes up for the extra price as you are within walking distance of entertainment (restaurants, DECC, etc). Rooms are updated and clean. Continental breakfast is above average. Would highly recommend this hotel for anyone staying in Duluth.
