I rented a 2 bedroom suite for my friend and myself. Suite was excellent. We had a window in each bedroom, 2 bathrooms and it was perfect for our get away. We had a great view of Canal Park and the Canal where the ships come into the harbor. Staff was very pleasant at check in, and in the surrounding... More

We rented a suite with a view of the lake on the 3rd floor. The room was very ugly and dated. The bathroom had poor ventilation. Although it's convenient I was disappointed for the price. Not a terrible cost if sharing with 4 adults but would not stay for a couples weekend. An up side is that it's pet friendly.

Funky hotel that got it's start as an industrial building in the canal park area of Duluth, MN. Our radio station staff was in town on business, and we opted for rooms at this hotel due to it's great location and the ability to walk to many attractions and dining options. Our rooms were large, clean, comfy, and quiet. The... More

Large suites with kitchens and sitting areas are the hallmark of this hotel. The rooms are well kept and the location in Canal Park is within walking distance to many excellent restaurants and shopping. Breakfast is typical hotel food with hot and cold offerings - nothing special here. Free parking is available across the street.

Unique hotel in a converted warehouse. I was glad we had a window room since it can be dark inside. Our suite was very spacious and it was nice to have a kitchenette although when we tried to use the electric burners to heat up soup there was a very bad electrical burning smell and the soup would not heat...

Location is the selling point here but that is about where it ends. Being down in canal park is ideal and you can walk to most attractions. The hotel itself is old and our room was in the middle of the building so there weren't any windows. We were staying for a wedding so it wasn't a huge deal to... More

This renovated warehouse hotel is very cool looking from the outside, and the inside is pretty nice. Room was mostly clean and roomy, but the price per night was extremely inflated. Given, we waited until the last minute to reserve a room in the Canal Park area, but most hotels were in the $250 per night range. For that price,... More

The rooms are very spacious with tall ceilings and good AC. Friendly staff. Nice kitchenette and fridge. Standard TV's, one in both rooms. Good breakfast. Downfalls: louder street notice, echo in your room because you literally have a bed with really not much for decor to nock noise down. These rooms could be beautiful if they were decorated. Loud AC.... More

The lobby is dated and uninviting. The swimming pool area needs to be cleaned and the swimming pool is so cloudy that you can't see the bottom, even where it is only 3 feet deep. And why do they have the flag of North Korea displayed over the swimming pool?! They realize that North Korea threatened as recently as last... More

This hotel is located in a renovated warehouse about a block from the Duluth waterfront. Convenient to Canal Park dining and attractions. The rooms were spacious and clean. There is some legitimacy to the "don't check in on a Sunday" claims. The staff has a difficult time turning over the 100+ rooms from the late-staying Sunday guests, and our room... More
