“Vintage Comfort”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2014

Fitger's Inn is a hotel placed in the original Fitger's Brewing building and it holds all the charm and old fashion appeal that we really enjoy. Extremely comfortable, beautiful views of Lake Superior, a wonderful pillow service and great shops and restaurants within the same building. Favorite place to stay when we visit Duluth and we do it often

We stayed a night in a lake view room and it was lovely. One tip is to make sure your curtains are open so that you can see the beautiful sunrise on the lake. We were upgraded to a lake view room, but if we went back I would pay to reserve the lake view-- it is totally worth the money!

I was pleasantly surprised by how historic and charming the Inn was. They've kept it in very good shape while maintaining the history of the building, and it was fun to wander through the shops and restaurants in the attached complex (as our trip was in January, it was even nicer that it was all connected by indoor walkways). The ladies at the front desk were also very helpful when we asked about things to do around Duluth.

Definitely worth a stay if you're travelling to or through Duluth.

Awesome shuttle service . Service awesome in general. But kind of a mix on "luxury" elements. (I'm SPG gold and spend 20+ nights a year in hotels, often westin). Although very clean, Lakeside "luxury" king was showing wear and tear...worn carpets that were luxurious a decade ago. Desk and side tables were cheap plastic veneer that was worn off the edges--tacky. Bed linens worse quality than Sheraton. Bed was worn down too, not that comfortable. Bath linens were great, Aveda products always appreciated, and turbo powered hair dryer great. Duluth hotels are so expensive for certain times of year, the options are very limited, so this is on par with the other nice hotels I think, what can you do. The view is awesome and the location and shuttle service are outstanding . I would stay again, but won't expect luxury.

Two decades after our honeymoon, we returned to Fitger's Inn in Duluth for a celebratory trip. From the moment we opened the front door to the moment several days later when we left, we were in good hands. There's free valet parking, though tipping is not forbidden. Our room on the lakeside provided breathing-taking views of Lake Superior at its best---a constantly changing window of sun and shadow and motion where ore-boats appeared and disappeared into the fog by day and, at night, turned into island cities of light that seemed to float in the darkened sky. We received coupons for $10 off dinner at the Midi Restaurant, browzed the shops and the brew pup, but mostly spent time in our room thoroughly enjoying the gifts of the occasion. Our room was spotless, quiet and with a little re-arranging provided wonderful view of "Big Blue". Because it was very cold outside, the large window which drops below the heating unit provided a "drop in cooler" which kept beverages cold without freezing.
We hope to return soon when the temperature is above zero so we can enjoy board walk excursion into downtown Duluth. If you care about the way the history and care intersect to produce "quality", Fitger's Inn is a premiere destination in Duluth. We'll be back.

Room Tip: Pay a few extra dollars to stay on the lakeside; ask for AAA/AARP or commercial discounts.

I didn't know what to expect but it turned out to be a wonderful experience as the staff were helpful, especially helping locate my misplaced credit card. The room was beautiful and all the amenities were perfect. The Inn was centrally located to plenty of restaurants and attractions and is only a 15-minute walk along the Lakewalk from Canal Park and all it attractions. Won't hesitate to return.

We've stayed at Fitger's several times. Each time, we're impressed with the service and the property itself. The hotel was developed in the building that originally housed Fitger's Brewery, and a great deal of attention was paid to maintaining the historically significant parts of the building. Rooms are clean, quiet, and very comfortable. Sleep is never an issue - the beds are very comfortable. The property also houses a restaurant, a brewery, a brew pub, and a host of shops. We've stayed in several different rooms and suites. All are fantastic.

Room Tip: Views of Lake Superior are awesome, but don't panic if they only have city-side rooms - ALL of t...

We stayed last December and took the train to Bentleyville with our two young daughters. We stayed in a suite and had a lake view with a balcony. We loved it! The staff was warm and very accommodating. The doorman took us on a tour of the hotel and some of the rooms. The manager gave our girls each a little gift, which made this magical adventure even more memorable. The room was clean and comfortable for our short stay. We will absolutely return again!

Room Tip: We stayed in a suite with a whirlpool tub and a beautiful lake view. I would recommend this room for...
