I travel to Duluth once a month on business. This property is head and shoulders above every other property I've stayed at, including The Suites, Comfort Suites, The Inn, The Kitchigami Club (where I'm a member), Beacon Pointe, Fitzgers and several highly rated B&B's (to be avoided). I stayed in a one bedroom w/ fireplace, as well as walked through a studio unit. Great floor plans and super basic amenities (TV, bedding, kitchen, bath, etc.). Breakfast was excellent, including eggs, hash browns, fruit, sweets and good coffee. The location is convenient, though I regret it's nowhere near the lake. Alas, no place by the lake I've tried is any good! This residence Inn is nevertheless excellent. Not cheap, however.
