“Elegant piece of history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

Fitger's is wonderful and unique location ot stay when you are visiting the beautiful North Shore of Minnesota. Fitger's offers shopping, dining, and individually designed rooms all in a great location. It is close to Canal Park, downtown, the train depot, and easy access to Hwy 61 for a scenic drive all the way to the Canadian boarder if you wanted. The prices are very comparable to other hotels in the area.

We love Fitgers and have stayed there a few times. It was our 25th anniversary vacation and after spending 3 days in the Tofte/Lutsen area, we decided to do a walk-in for a room at Fitgers Inn on our way back to our cabin on Mille Lacs.
We just wanted a Standard Room but we're up graded to a Luxury because none were available. Lucky us. We didn't even tell them it was the day of our 25th anniversary.
It was earlier in the day so we had to come back in a couple hours for check-in, we went to Mexico Lindo overlooking the lake and had a great lunch (don't recommend the margaritas) but the beer was good and cold. Later, when we went back to the front desk, the room wasn't quite ready because of an air-conditioning problem, after waiting for awhile to see if it would get fixed they just decided to upgrade us again into a Double Whirlpool Suite. What a terrific room it was....it doesn't get any better at Lake Superior than this. Everyone at the front desk treated us like royalty, also got a nice discount coupon for the Midi Restaurant which was excellent. I had the Lake Superior White Fish and my wife had the Pecan Crusted Salmon, both dishes were superb and the ambience and service was perfect. Getting back to the Suite, it had a giant whirlpool, separate bathroom, wet bar service area as well as 2 rooms, the bedroom and sitting room each had a large Samsung LCD TV, bathrobes and everything else that a Suite should have. Thank You Fitgers!!!!!

We brought our black lab and the hotel was very welcoming. They even brought her a bowl of ice water when we ate outside on the patio. The views are the best, great access to the lake walk. Love this place.

Room Tip: Lake view rooms are the best. Higher floors have a bit better view of the lake.

Fitger's, located in a transformed old brewery building, is a truly first-class hotel. The rooms are huge, many with jacuzzi whirlpool tubs, and many with a separate living-room space. Service is superb - including complimentary valet parking. And if you tell the valet parker when you next want your car, it is there, without you having to make a separate call for it to be brought around. Great location in the heart of downtown Duluth, and with an internal culture of service that is as good as any hotel anywhere, it is hard to imagine a better place to stay in Duluth. No pool, but a good gym.

A friend and I decided to have a girls weekend in Duluth and we decided to try Fitger's Inn. Best decission ever! Tons of shops and entertainment within the complex and great view. The best part of our stay was the service from the minute we walked through the door. The doors being opened for us, the front desk all smiles and thanks yous, I really felt like we got the royal treatment. A car was waiting to take us anywhere down town and picked us up to bring us back. GREAT PLACE, great people! Thanks Fitger's Inn. 5 big stars for service.

Room Tip: Lots of places to eat right in the complex. Great food.

We loved the view from our 3rd story room. Waking up to the sun coming up on Lake Superior was breath taking. The room was peaceful and clean. Parking is never a problem for its a free valet. The location is in the heart of downtown Duluth where you can walk to and from all the lovely shops. There is a brewery in the basement of Fitgers Inn and some very cool shops! Id recommend this place even for a quick little get away.

Room Tip: Stay on the Lakeside- Well worth the extra $$$

Absolutely love Fitgers. The service is excellent, from the complimentary valet parking to the incredibly polite housekeeping and maintenance staff. Our room, which was a luxury king with lake view, was very large and very comfortable. Our room still had the original brick walls and extra high ceilings. The window is incredibly tall and the view from our room was of the end of canal so we could see all of the ships coming and going. The bed was very comfortable and the pillow menu was a nice touch as well. We have stayed in Duluth often over the last 15 years but this is our first stay at Fitgers. We typically stay in Canal Park. I can definitively say that we will be stayig at Fitgers on our future visits!
