“Wished to stay longer...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

My dad and I flew to Duluth on a business trip.
We spent the night at Fitgers... And it was Awesome!
I loved the room, the decor, the breakfast buffet (yum yum) everything about it was simply fascinating....
I wasn't fully prepared for the weather, which was a huge disappointment, I would've loved to walk and explore the town. But it was freezing cold for me, (I'm not used to this)... So I was only thinking about staying indoors...
I appreciated the fresh air and lake view, and was sad to leave the next day. I recommend the place, it's worth the money.

The Historic Hotel is a pleasant retreat. Typical clientele are adults on a getaway to the North Shore. Some family events like weddings bring the whole gang, but those we have seen there, share the respect of the site as being a bit reserved, in a good way. We appreciate the quiet atmosphere. There is no pool or hot tub, but that's ok, plenty of things to do in Duluth. There's even a small boutique of shops on site , with great food options avialable within a minutes walk from your room, no need to go outside if you don't want. A shuttle service is available if need be. A lot of history is shown in photos throughout the complex. Fitger's Brewery offers a fun tour and the Brewhouse is a must. Rooms are well kept and clean. Staff is helpful and friendly. A nice lite breakfast served lakeside is available to guests, and they offer the best coffee in town, in my opinion!! Fitger's has been a favorite night away in Minnesota, of ours, for years.

Room Tip: Penthouse offers a large visiting or table games area. Some suites have balconies with small chairs...

My husband and I try and get up to Fitgers at least once per year - we live in Minneapolis. It's a great getaway from the 'big city', but by no means is Duluth a small city! We love the charm of Fitgers as well as the quality of the rooms. Those rooms on the lake side are worth the extra cost - you have a great view of the lift bridge as well as a walkway that runs along the waters edge. There's good shopping attached to the hotel as well as the brewhouse where we often stop for a late day beverage or lunch.

Room Tip: Rooms on the lakeside are great if you enjoy listening to the water or watching the ships come into...

This hotel has a very neat atmosphere! The price was a little high but the perks of having shopping, food & great beer in the same complex were awesome, especially in Winter! If you need to leave the free shuttle was very handy. Staff was awesome!
Rooms were very neat. The Cityside rooms with double beds are a good size but friends stayed in a Lakeview single bed room & it was small.
Eating continental breakfast looking over the lake in the Boardroom was a pretty neat way to start the day!

The staff were outstanding. Valet service was very nice, given the chilly weather and snow.

Front desk staff were helpful finding locally owned restaurants.

Breakfast in the hotel was good, overlooked the lake. We stayed inside (given the weather) but will go back.

Had a suite upstairs with LOTS of room, enjoyed the jacuzzi tub and extra space to read a book. Fireplace was nice and bed was very comfy. Will go back in the summer to enjoy the lakeview balcony.

Pleasantly surprised by how much of original details they kept in the building like the super high ceilings and detailed woodwork throughout. The breakfast room had a great view on the lake, although in Dec it is more dark and gloomy than one might want to look at first thing in the morning. The complimentary valet parking was much appreciated after my long work days.

Room was very clean and comfortable. I had 206 which had 2 beds facing the street with a separate elevated sitting room section with 10 foot window.

The area around the hotel looked very interesting with some bars and clubs. Definitely would love to come back for a visit with the family sometime.

I don't have much to add that hasn't already been said by others. I travel for a living, all over the world. The Fitger's is truly one of my top 5 favorite hotels. The rooms are all unique and cozy and old. The staff is professional and calm. And, Lake Superior is in your backyard. You just don't find this combination of authentic, comfortable, and unique very often, so enjoy it when you do!
