“Nice place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2014

We stayed here while on a winter get a way. The staff was very nice and accommodating to all of our needs. We had a problem with the TV in our room and they switched us to another room. I liked the fact that there is not a long hallway to go through. Convenient parking.

Recently stayed here after reading trip advisor reviews. This was a quiet stay, easy access to lots of Duluth. It was winter, so we weren't walking anywhere but it would be an easy walk across the lift bridge to restaurants. The rooms were clean, quiet and the staff very nice. Would stay there again!

This place is beautiful and a little piece of heaven away from home. I have never in my life seen a more beautiful yet peaceful establishment. Again, feels like a piece of heaven away from our home.I would recommend any one I know to stay in this gorgeous place.

We love this hotel! It is so nicely designed and comfortable, and the staff is exceptional. The views are lovely and the location is perfect. We walked to canal park for shopping and dinner, and it was great - even in Duluth in January!

Room Tip: The harbor view rooms are wonderful, but even the ones on the neighborhood side have lovely views.

My boyfriend and I spent last weekend at this hotel and I cannot say enough positive things about it! We went with the suite and it was such a treat to have a fireplace and whirlpool in our room. We were in room 201 and had such a great view of the lift bridge and the water, even for being on the first floor. Our room was impeccably clean and it was very quiet, although I know they were mostly booked up! The breakfast that they provide is very limited, but that is not why you book here, you book for the view and the very nice room and accommodations!

Room Tip: A waterfront view is one of the best parts of this hotel!

Spent an amazing weekend with the hubby last weekend. This hotel was gorgeous! The suite has a corner whirlpool tub which views a fireplace and gorgeous view of the beautifully lit arial lift bridge. The staff were so friendly and knowledgable about things to do and of course shopping!! The shower was spacious with plenty of hot water and even the soaps and shampoos were fancy! The owners even spend time in the lobby chatting with guests. It's a very warm friendly environment that was so pleasant to be in. I would highly recommend staying here. I can't wait to go back!

In the heart of Canal Park sits this amazing gem of a hotel!!! We stayed in a suite, room 201 to be exact and what spectacular views!! Not to mention to view OF the room (whirlpool tub, fireplace, comfy beds!!!!). I couldn't say enough good things about the hospitality and accommodations that this hotel offers. Second to none. They really make you feel welcome and appreciated!!! Check it out for yourself. You will not be disappointed!
