My family of two adults and three kids has just spent a delightful long weekend at Marriott's Residence Inn in Duluth. We had a modern family suite on the ground floor, consisting of a queen bedroom, a king bedroom and a sofa bed in the living area.
I can't tell you how happy I am when I find a hotel that can put all of us in one suite without the bother of booking two rooms and trying to get them within a day's walk of each other! Our suite had two bathrooms, three TVs (with HBO) and A FULL KITCHEN, all for US$229 a night. What more do I need to say!
But wait, there's more! The complimentary breakfast was excellent - fresh juice, homemade waffles, hot breakfast and takeaway, should you wish. The kids loved the indoor heated pool and spa in the dead of a Minnesotan winter, and I loved not having to traipse far from our room to get there. The complimentary wifi was faster and more consistent than just about any hotel I have stayed in. The staff are attentive, warm and polite - nothing is a problem they cant try to help you with.
There is a huge supermarket and coffee place right next door, and the Miller Hill Mall is only half a mile away.
Thank you to all the folk on Tripadvisor who recommended this hotel. It really helps on family trips to know of a good place to stay.
