I can't believe this place has ever gotten a bad review period. This is the coolest, cleanest unique place I have ever stayed at. I am a world traveler and always stay at 4 and 5 star places.

I travel to Duluth quite a bit for work and always stay at the Suites. It is a spooky hotel (in a good way), sometimes it seems you might turn a corner and see the ghosts of twin girls. It is very inexpensive, and has a good loyalty program. If you are traveling for work, ask about the corporate rate.... More

Our son is in college in Duluth, and he wanted us to bring our dog for the weekend. This hotel is pet friendly, but I never saw another pet. The hotel is older, and the rooms show signs of wear. It is located in canal park, which was fabulous. The staff was very professional and polite. The breakfast in the... More

I went back and forth about this hotel as some of the reviews weren't fabulous, but I am SO glad we stayed. It wasn't perfect - the room had a bit of wear to it, but it was clean and huge for our 6 person family. Two large bedrooms were perfect for us and the pool was well used by... More

We stay her with a group, the rooms reminded me of the places I've stayed in Europe. It's so close to shopping and the pier as well as many restaurants. If you are looking for a great cozy place to stay this is it, we had a fireplace which was great to warm up in front of after a cool... More

Did not book this hotel myself but was a guest with another couple and was not impressed overall with my stay. Liked the location but the hotel left little for me to like. We checked in thought the lobby was okay as it is spacious though a bit dusty (the fake plants had tons of dust on them). Went to... More

I don't like to be completely negative about a hotel or restaurant. I think it is good to offer something positive to those reading the review to help them make a rational decision regarding their choice for a place to stay or dine. Unfortunately I can't think of anything positive to say about the Suites Hotel in Duluth. The venue... More

Thank you for writing! We do have an amazing location inside a historic building, but with the foot and a half thick concrete and brick exterior walls, increasing the widow size would have been difficult. We do apologize for you not having housekeeping during your stay, we were just honoring your do not disturb sign that was on your door... More

Great location in Canal Park, several restaurants close-by, parking across the street. The check-in process was quick and smooth. We rented a 2 bedroom condo, room was spacious and included kitchen, dining area, living area, 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, fireplace and jacuzzi. Our suite overlooked canal park and had windows in the bedroom that opened. Pool was cloudy but nice.... More

My husband and I chose this hotel for a one night stay on our way up the North Shore, and it was perfect for our purposes. We wanted to stay in the Canal Park area. However, because we'd be staying right on the water for the rest of our vacation, we chose to cut costs by staying the block+ off... More
