“Convenient location and great service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

We stayed here for 5 nights during a trip to Duluth and the North Shore. Like some have mentioned, this hotel is not on or near the lake. However, for those looking for a hotel with great service, clean rooms and convenient location, this is a great place to stay. We used this as our starting point for our many day trips to Bayfield, Grand Marais, Two Harbors, and of course, the city of Duluth itself. Having the full kitchen in each room is great for longer stays, and there is a Cub Foods grocery store just next door. If you don't mind not being on the lake, I would highly recommend this hotel. The staff were very friendly, and attentive.

Green Features: Would like to have seen recycling containers available in the rooms.

First, let me say that it is important that you know that this hotel is NOT on the lake. That said, it is an excellent hotel. We found the rooms clean, comfortable, excellent for a three night stay. The nearby grocery store and shopping was very helpful. It is quite a drive down to the waterfront - and that was too bad. For some reason, I just didn't realize that when booking the hotel.

It's the only reason why I'd give this a less than excellent rating - otherwise it was just a fantastic stay all around. We would stay here again. But, if you want to be on the waterfront - keep looking!

Room Tip: I think all the rooms are good - the hotel is very new, and nicely laid out.

Green Features: It is a new, up-to-date hotel and they offer all the environmentally friendly options (recycling, reusing your towels, etc).

Thank you so much for your review!

Unfortunately, it's inevitable that every now and then travelers are caught off guard that our property is not located directly next to Lake Superior.

However, we're confident that the service and amenities offered by our property are superior for the area. We're glad that despite the mix up you still enjoyed your stay and we hope that the next time you're in Duluth you will consider staying with us again!

The rooms are huge, immaculately clean and have all the comforts of home. The front desk was extremely helpful with an early check in and spot on with recommendations for seeing the highlights in Duluth. We selected this hotel based on trip advisor ratings and have not been disappointed. We also reviewed trip advisor things to do list and totally agree with the top five here in Duluth.

My wife and I were in Duluth for Grandmas Marathon (she ran, not me) and the hotel staff/accommodations were great. Friendly staff, good breakfast and only 10 minutes to canal park. If you can't stay by the lake, you can't go wrong staying here

We stayed here in July 2013 for a weekend away from the twin cities. I must say that this place offered more than I was expecting from a hotel. Helpful and friendly staff. I was surprised how pleasant the staff was and helped suggest hiking trips in the area for us. Spotless and clean throughout. Near a fair amount of shopping and restaurants. Location is good to make your base camp while going on day trips around the area. It is removed (not walking distance) from the downtown area, but an easy drive down the hill. The rooms were excellent and spacious and better than some 5-star hotels I have stayed. Good selection at the continental breakfast in the morning. Arrive early as it is popular. Great staff, great stay. I have recommended this hotel to numerous friends.

We stayed in this hotel from March thru first of June. What a great place with a wonderful staff. They got to know us and spoke every time we saw them. Great lobby area for hanging out. Breakfast and dinner were always good. The pool area is nice, however the hot tub is way over chlorinated. Ruined my wife's bathing suit. The patio area was also very nice and we took full advantage of the gas grill on the weekends. Would recommend this place for anyone headed to Duluth

My family and I have stayed here a couple times and I don't have a single complaint about this business. Spacious, clean rooms. Hotel is pretty new so everything is very nice. Comfortable beds and always quiet. The breakfast is great. Good selection of food and always had plenty available. Friendly staff.
