“Best Duluth Lodging.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2011

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.

Room Tip: The corner room we stayed in was great, though a bit of walk from the lobby/ dining room.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2011

We came to Duluth to see the sights and the north shore. When we chose this hotel, we did not realize how far away it was from downtown or Hwy 61. The hotel would be great for a business traveler who was working in that area of Duluth but given its cost and location, it was not the best choice for a tourist. In addition, the hotel boasts that it is dog friendly but does not disclose until check in that it costs $89 for the dog per night.

Room Tip: If you are traveling for fun, consider staying in canal park or along Hwy 61

Hello cutetraveler,

Thank you for taking time to review your recent stay with us at the Residence Inn by Marriott-Duluth. Because we are such a new hotel, all of the guest feedback we receive will only help us to improve for future guests.

Duluth is a very interesting city in the fact that there are such distinct areas of interest. There is the main attraction of Lake Superior which we are about 10 minutes away from and also the Miller Hill Mall area which is where we are in the heart of. We have found since opening that people do have their preferences on where to stay when visiting our beautiful city of Duluth. Thank you for your recent business and although we weren't in the perfect location for you to enjoy the North Shore, we truly hope you enjoyed your stay with us and that our friendly staff and inviting hotel made your trip up the hill worthwhile.

Marriott.com has provided us a wonderful template to list out all of the information about our hotel on the fact sheet portion of our webpage. There you will find so much information on hotel location, amenities, area attractions and additional fees. This is a very useful tool especially if you plan to use Marriott hotels for your future leisure travels.

Thank you again and we appreciate you,
Erin Torgerson
General Manager

My wife and I stayed at 3 hotels this trip to Duluth, and this was by far head and shoulders above all the rest. Clean, friendly, helpful, convenient and and for what you get, it's priced right. This will be where we stay from now on on all our trips to Duluth. The only problem I have is that we didn't spend our whole trip here. We wanted to stay down in Canal Park on the water to enjoy that area but that was a mistake, we paid way more and was not worth the old stinky hotels that we were in down there.

No long review necessary when it was so enjoyable.

I stay at this hotel at least twice a month and I have just one word...great! The rooms are comfortable, clean and have a nice modern setting. The staff is always very welcoming and helpful. They have even started to remember my name when I walk through the front door!

The lobby and breakfast area has to be my favorite place to relax. I am staying here again this weekend and look forward to seeing my friendly "Residence Inn" staff in Duluth!

Hotel was great! Rooms were very modern, super clean and comfortable. Staff was very friendly and ensured our stay was comfortable. We were traveling with our 18 month old and the staff made sure we had what we needed, including a crib with a clean washed protective cover, they even included a free bath squirty toy for my daughter. Free breakfast in the morning was great; eggs, french toast, sausage, fruit, yogurt etc. We will definatly stay again!!

Hi Tammy R & Family,

Thank you for taking the time out of your busy day with an 18 month old and writing such a positive review of our hotel!

We want to make sure that all of our guests feel welcome the minute they walk in our doors; from our business executives all the way to our mini-travelers, hence the baby care package in your room. I'm glad your little one had fun with the goodies.

We are looking forward to your next visit with us--

Very happy w/our weekend stay at this Residence Inn. It was clean, quiet, new, had convenient parking, pleasant & helpful staff. We didn't swim but the indoor pool looked very nice. Did use the fitness center and it had new equipment, machines w/TV monitors, again very clean. (spotless facility!) Complimentary breakfast too.
The only downside and this is so minor but the toilet was one of those low toilets, most nowadays are taller/higher set and more comfortable. No biggee but that seemed odd for a new facility.
In summary, we have stayed at many different hotels in Duluth and this is now our favorite. We'll be back!
