I think the Park Point Marina Inn must have been open about a week or two now. Everything is new, new, new, which is great, great, great! The hotel is nice, tasteful modern decor; the staff folk are professional; there are rooms with a "city" view of the Lake Street bridge -- that goes straight to the touristy part of Duluth -- those with a marina view. What I really liked is the hotel location at the start of the Park Point "spit" -- which is a several mile long, one street wide part of the city that has a beach on one side and a working part of the lake on the other. The old houses are charming but the area is starting to turn toward big, expensive renovations. Lots of trees, parks, really a special part of the city!
