My husband and I recently traveled to Duluth for a wedding. After reading all of the TripAdvisor reviews, plus others, we opted to stay at Fitger's, despite the higher than average price. It was a good decision. The location is perfect - great views of the harbor from the room, and easy access to Duluth's wonderful lakeside boardwalk. We had a corner king standard room. The website is not kidding when it describes the room as small - this was a REALLY small room, although maybe it was smaller than usual because it was a corner. The bed took up most of the floor space. (good thing we love each other) Anyway, the three windows looking over the lake more than made up for it. Also, the shower was great. My husband is always disappointed with water pressure, height of the shower head, etc. in hotels; he proclaimed this the best hotel shower ever. The bed was firm and really comfy. The decor was simple, nice, and traditional. We did have several cobwebs over the bed and on the windowsill (minor enough we did not bother mentioning to the front desk, but housekeeping missed them three days in a row) but otherwise the room and bathroom were spotless. Staff was very pleasant and helpful. A doorman even refilled our cooler while we were loading the car to leave. There is valet parking, but the underground lot is convenient and free. Having the stores and restaurant in the same complex was nice. Midi's Restaurant had a great breakfast, including great coffee. (salmon hash with poached eggs ...) Overall, a definite recommendation.
