My husband and I stayed here in early Winter and had an amazing time. We took advantage of the proximity to Duluth's newest microbrew, Canal Park Brewery, had an awesome dinner in Canal Park and then headed to Bentleyville on foot. Afterwards, we hopped into the heated rooftop pool and relaxed before climbing into our super comfy bed. Location plays a big role in why The Inn on Lake Superior is so awesome... the views cannot be beat. But, that aside, there's a lot of other things that make it a great hotel. First, customer service is two thumbs up. They are friendly when you arrive, are familiar with the area in an authentic way, and go above and beyond to make your stay pleasant. There's plenty of parking. There is a clear effort to be green, which is nice for a hotel. And, I'm not just talking, reuse your towels. I'm talking silverware and real plates at the free breakfast versus styrofoam and plastic. Recycling bins everywhere, including your room. And so on. Finally, on the note of breakfast, delicious! Some folks call stale donuts a continental breakfast. And, the fact that there isn't a restaurant means doing a full-blown breakfast buffet is something that is somewhat of an inconvenience for them. But, they deliver. Amazing food. Diverse menu options from healthy to well sausage and bacon. Real food, real juice, quality coffee. Good stuff... My only complaint, and this is minor, but given Duluth is a hockey town and we were there in winter, many of the guests are well let's just say they have an overzealous approach to life. At times, jarring. A bit obnoxious, in a well-behaved way. We've stayed there maybe 4-times during the winter and every time it has been packed with hockey boys. I can understand why but if you're going for romance, be aware of this.
