This hotel is located on the lake shore and very close to restaurants and shopping - although the boutiques were not really of great interest to me. The room was very clean and spacious - 4 of us stayed in the room with no problem. The continental breakfast every morning was amazing - the kids always found something different to... More

We are frequent visitors to the North Shore and Duluth, but have never stayed here because it is always booked on the weekends. Now we know why -- Very nice hotel. Super friendly staff accommodated our every request starting with very early check-in because my husband had to work all day, Spacious well-decorated rooms, nice beds, great location. Lovely lounge... More

Stayed the weekend of 4/27/12. Room was spacious and clean, breakfasts were hearty, and service was exceptional. Everything was done right. We would not hesitate to stay here again.

We stayed at this place last weekend, 4/20/12. What a great experience. Our room was very clean. They are environment friendly, which is nice to see. Loved the lodge feel of it. The lounging area over looking the lake was nice. I loved the location as well. Everything was within walking distance and lots of fun shops and bars to... More

Very nice, newer hotel with a comfortable, lodge feel to it. It was close to everything we wanted to do/see in the Duluth, and everything in Canal Park is walking distance. Great view of the lake from our small balcony. Really enjoyed lounging, reading and playing board games (we brought our own) in the big lodge like are on the... More

wow - Can't say enough about this property! Loved it! We stayed here in March - came to Duluth to go skiing. The hotel itself is very clean, very new, beautful property. The rooms are standard size, not huge, but had a frig/microwave, some rooms had balconys - that would be really nice and probably a must have in the... More

This is a very nice hotel with an awesome view of Lake Superior and a walking path just outside the door. Everything about our stay was great except for what the hotel calls Happy Hour. Lukewarm mini mozzarella sticks with an empty bowl of marinara sauce are an insult to the guests at this hotel, especially one hour into a... More

Canal Park Lodge is my absolutely favourite hotel to stay when we are visiting Duluth. They have great "Canadian" specials where at different times of the year the rooms are 50% off. The breakfast in the morning is great, with waffles that you make yourself, hot items (eggs/sausage/bacon etc.) cereal, fruit etc. and a wonderful coffee bar. Coffee (Caribou) and... More

We stayed at this hotel for my daughter's figure skating competition at the end of January. We were impressed with the customer service from everyone. Walking down the hall going back to our room after breakfast we were greeted with Good Morning! from every staff member we saw. The rooms were big and clean, and if you pay for a... More

I was able to obtain a special rate for my extended family that made a difficult time a little more pleasant. Our beloved uncle was dying from pancreatic cancer and we arranged to converge on Duluth to say our goodbyes. We arrived 3 days before his departure and we are grateful to the Canal Park Lodge for their kind hospitality.... More
