I had a one night business trip to Duluth and I decided to stay at the Residence Inn. Pros: it is a quiet and peaceful place to stay, the staff is friendly and helpful, my suite was clean and cheerful, and there was plenty of parking. The only negative is its location. It is neither downtown or along the lake. It is along a dreary commercial street. That being the case, it is just a short drive to interesting places and downtown. I would stay at the Residence Inn again on a business trip to Duluth.
