“Fitger's Inn”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

My husband & I stayed at Fitger's Inn in Duluth, MN to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. The Inn is beautiful - large rooms, intricate woodworking, stained glass chandeliers, and spectacular views of Lake Superior & the Duluth harbor. The staff was extremely friendly and welcoming. The room was spotlessly clean. The valet service was efficient. There was nothing we would change. The Fitger's Inn is part of a larger building that houses several restaurants, many shops, and a brewery. One of our favorite events of the weekend was to take the Brewhouse tour. We enjoyed the one hour beer lesson as well as several beer samples during the tour & after.

Room Tip: The lake-side rooms are well worth any extra dollars over the city-view rooms - beautiful lake views...

This is a beautiful old hotel in one of the best locations in Duluth. The hotel is small, and that allows for a lot of attention to detail. The staff is very helpful (offering to retrieve the valet parked car at midnight as my husband forgot his cell phone).

The rooms are well appointed and the views beautiful. Fitgers offers free valet parking, as well as self parking next to the building. There are many shops and restaurants on site, and many more within walking distance. The suites are huge, and the Internet is free no matter your room type.

This is a top notch hotel for Duluth. It should be noted that if you are expecting the highest level of service (as you would find in a major metro like the twin cities or Chicago) you are NOT going to find it in Duluth. However Fitgers is almost there! We had a great stay and will make this out hotel of choice for all future trips.

Stayed here in February and enjoyed the hotel. As a Travel Agent (Journeys Around the World), I get to experience many hotels for both business and personal vacations. This stay was personal. Opted for a Lake view room which was worth it for the wonderful view of Lake Superior and the Lift Bridge. Room was spacious with modern amenities. Hotel has a doorman and valet parking. Close to downtown. Great alternative to the standard chains in Duluth. Will definitely stay here again on my next visit.

Room Tip: Definitely choose a Lakeview room!!

Fitger's Inn is by far our favorite place to stay when in Duluth. We have stayed several times and are never disappointed with our accommodations. The rooms are very clean, roomy, comfortable and each one has its own charm. Feels just like home! Great views from the lakeside rooms, close to downtown, walking path right out the back door, great shopping, great restaurants and pet friendly. Our dog loves it there! We were just there celebrating my birthday and we had another wonderful time. Everyone there does an excellent job of making you feel welcome. We highly recommend this beautiful, historic hotel when visiting Duluth for business or pleasure.

My wife and I have an annual tradition of celebrating our wedding anniversary by traveling to Duluth and staying at Fitger's Inn. I can't remember the first time that we stayed at Fitger's Inn, but I do know that after our first visit we decided that a two to three day stay at Fitger's would be a great way to celebrate the best day of our life. Over the years we have made it a point to try to stay in the same room, and I am happy to say that the staff at Fitger's Inn have always made it possible for this to happen. We have always been treated as if we were important, and we have never been disappointed with the service that we have received from each and every member of the staff who do their utmost to make sure that all of our needs are met. We are looking forward to returning to Fitger's Inn for many years to come.

Fitger's Inn is situated right near downtown Duluth, right on Lake Superior. You can pretty much walk everywhere from here. You don't even have to go outside if you don't want to. Fitger's Brewhouse is located in the same building and is one of our favorite brew-pubs around. The staff is great and very helpful. We usually book ahead for our annual winter trip and you get a very nice discount when you pay ahead, which makes it cheaper than most hotels in downtown Duluth.

Room Tip: Skip the hotel breakfast and go to Chester Creek Cafe/At Sara's Table. It is the best!
