The building was built in 1881 and is chock full of history. As soon as you walk in the door, everyone is very welcoming! The doormen and front desk staff are very accommodating. A half dozen or more shops are located right inside the huge campus. Also, 3 restaurants and a cool (but musty smelling) bar way down in the basement. A 5 minute walk from the Aerial Lift Bridge and all that Canal Park has to offer.
The owner, Vlasie, was even nice enough to stop and visit with my wife and I as we enjoyed a complimentary beer and appetizer tasting complete with live music down by the lake-side over look.
Continental breakfast was real simple, but hey.....plenty of great places in Duluth to eat, so it was good enough for a light breakfast. Brewpub had an excellent selection of in-house beers and the food was fine.
If you want the Radisson or a Holiday in, this ain't your place! If you want true Duluth and a great experience.....come here.
