This is a very nice hotel, we stayed there during the Tall Ships Festival. The room was very well sized with tall ceiling for being on the first floor. The only draw back was that there was no exit out the water side from the little balcony. It was nice having this when we stayed in the hotel right down... More

Stayed here for the BHS leadership conference and was very impressed with this hotel. Never been to Duluth before so just walking out the hotel and having the most beautiful view of the lake was absolutely breath taking. Great rooms. Great breakfast. Great atmosphere!

Love staying in the canal park area, where you can just leave your car in the parking lot for the hotel and walk around and explore. So many places to eat, shop or relax all in the general area. The hotel was beautiful with great amenities. The breakfast was great, the pool was nice and the patio was awesome. Would... More

This wasn't the hotel that I thought I was reserving, but turned out to be a great stay. We had a balcony overlooking the lake, the room was clean and well stocked with soap, shampoo, lotion, etc. Free coffee and cookies, free appetizers before dinner and very nice complimentary breakfast. The hotel is right on the Lake Walk in Canal... More

There is covered motorcycle parking with clean towels to use!! We absolutely recommend staying here. Plenty of places to eat & drink close by and it's right on the water with a very nice boardwalk and trail. Full hot breakfast, friendly staff & it's very clean!

Thank you for your comments. We do get a lot of motorcycle riders that like driving up the North Shore of Lake Superior, so we have provided some nice covered parking for them. We're glad you took advantage of the amenity. More

My wife and I have stayed here a couple times. Their complimentary breakfast is tops compared to other hotels. The location is awesome. We walk down to the lift bridge and walk to our dining with several options in walking distance. We usually stroll down the walk to towards the rose garden area. It's expensive but so are all the...

I just returned from an overnight with 4 senior adults and 4 grandchildren. What a wonderful hotel. The rooms were extremely large, very clean and comfortable beds with multiple pillows. The front desk staff was very efficient and our extra roll away was delivered promptly. The location is perfect for a Canal Park and Duluth visit. Canal Park restaurants and... More

Wonderful location to walk Canal Park, restaurants, and sights. Bountiful breakfast. Right on the water. Fire pit. Indoor pool. Happy hour. Standard room. Friendly staff. Free parking. Try the four-person bikes for rent a short distance away.
