I chose this hotel for its great location, good breakfast and price (everything in Duluth is expensive in my opinion). It was right in Canal Park which is fun because it is in within walking distance of so much, including a microbrew. I docked the hotel points on cleanliness and service because our bathroom was not clean and the employee who checked us out, did not look away from her computer for a single moment. On the other hand, the housekeeping staff who I met in the hallway and the staff at breakfast were genuinely kind, cheery and helpful. The breakfast area was spacious, seating was plentiful and there were many items to chose from, including make your own waffle. The hot tub was great. This hotel was quiet even though there were many families staying here.
