“Excellent stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

We stayed in a two bedroom suite with two bathrooms, living room, and kitchen. The room was excellent. It was very spacious and very comfortable. Breakfast was included, although I must admit I am not that big on American breakfasts..lots of biscuits and gravy and such, and not enough healthy choices. The staff was very helpful and very friendly, and the location is excellent - less than a mile from Miller Hill Mall and other shops. The staff will even do grocery shopping for you at no extra cost! Would definately recommend this hotel and will stay again next time I am in Duluth.

Room Tip: The back of the hotel is quieter.

New hotel with nice layout and new, well-designed, attractive rooms. The staff I interacted with were pleasant, the room was clean. The hotel does require a car and it is a drive to the downtown area but worth it.

This was my first stay at this property. Nothing but rave reviews. Although it is not located in Canal Park - desired location - it is easy to find with plenty of nearby restaurants, shops, etc. Front desk staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The room was flawless. I am a self proclaimed clean freak and it passed my standards with flying colors! The pool was nice sized - and equipped with a few toys for the kids. Breakfast was above and beyond anything I have ever found at a hotel. Complete with eggs, sausage, biscuits and gravy, oatmeal, waffles w/toppings, fruit, bagels, cereal. Would most certainly stay again!

Room Tip: We stayed on the fourth (top) floor - very quiet.

Thank you so much for your review---we are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us!

We really enjoy it when people that generally stay in the Canal Park area are able to venture up the hill and stay at the Residence Inn. Sometimes it may be because that area is sold out, or maybe because they want to try something different, but it's a great opportunity for us to share our hotel and service with them. We love meeting new people, and love it even more when you've enjoyed yourself and return for another stay. We are very happy to hear that you had a positive experience at our hotel & hope that you will visit again soon!

I stayed here with my mom, son and host mother from when I was an exchange student in high school. Wow! The 2 bedroom 2 bath was the perfect size for us. Breakfast had nice healthy choices, and the seating area was HUGE.

This is one of the nicest Residence Inns that we've stayed in. Clean, neat, and comfortable. It's relatively new (only 3 years old). Breakfast was great. One of the best we've had in this class of hotel. The breakfast alone makes the stay even more of a value.

Location is not the best. You do need to drive to the Canal Park area if that's where you're headed.

My boyfriend and I stayed one night in Duluth for September long weekend. We booked on Friday for Saturday night so there was not a lot of rooms left. We got a one bedroom king suite.

I was incredibly sick this week and not sure why we even traveled, but I'm glad we did.

We arrived at the hotel around 3:00pm and our room was ready. We had a choice of first or second floor and chose first so we could park the car near our room. Next time I would chose a higher floor due to the privacy. The front desk staff (Andy?) was very helpful and pleasant. Excellent asset to the hotel.

Our room was immaculately cleaned and had lots of natural light and nice furnishings. We were very impressed with everything the room had to offer - tons of dishes and cookware in the kitchen, up to date appliances - everything you would need.

There was a lovely sofa (pull out), a chair, and a great fireplace that really did give off a lot of heat. This would be great in the winter, but since it was burning hot this day, we put the air conditioning on as cold as it would go! It worked perfect - the rooms were cold right away There was a TV over the fireplace, which we did not use.

Off the main room was a room with a sink and mirror etc - then a separate bathroom with shower and toilet and then a separate bedroom.
Bedroom was large with a TV on a large set of drawers, a closet with mirrors and extra blankets, a very comfortable king size bed, and 2 night tables. There were (close to) black out drapes that were more than adequate.

There was a pool and hot tub in the hotel, which we did not use, but looked very inviting. Outside the pool in a courtyard there was a BBQ and many chairs and tables to use so you could cook outside. The other side of the courtyard was the lobby/breakfast area.

Breakfast was fantastic - there were English muffins, bread, bagels, many toppings for them. On this day they had biscuits and gravy, sausage patties, scrambled eggs, fresh waffles, fruit, yogurt, milk, juices, coffee etc. This is more of a selection than I'd have at home.

We checked out around 11:30 and this was not an issue - you have until 12:00pm which is great.

The only faults we could come up with is that the shower head wasn't good. It was too large and the pressure wasn't hard enough to rinse shampoo/conditioner from my hair.

This hotel is close to the mall, restaurants, and canal park - if you have a car. It would be far if you were walking. The location was perfect for us!

We would definitely stay here again and we cannot wait to return!

Room Tip: We had a ground floor room - which was convenient. But not so great when you forgot that you pulled...

We stayed here in early August 2013, our third stay at this hotel. It is a newer property, very clean and comfortable with great kitchen facilities. They have a wonderful breakfast, with hot oatmeal, walnuts, raisins, or scrambled eggs with toast, different potato dishes, fresh fruit and juices, yogurt. The beds are comfortable, nice flat screen TV's and a gas fireplace. It is at the top of West Central Entrance in Duluth, you could actually walk to Cub grocery if you wanted to, there is a great coffee shop near Cub, where we went every morning. Also, very important, it is pet friendly, so we can bring our 4 lb. dog with us, and they have a good area for the pets to walk and pet waste container. Awesome swimming pool, fitness facility and even laundry if you need to wash clothes. Housekeeping does a great job and everyone on the staff is very friendly and makes you feel welcome. We definitely will be back for every stay in Duluth!

Room Tip: We always stay on the first floor near the back door for easy pet walks and access to our car.
