An absolute MUST stay when in Duluth. This is a locally owned small family business hotel. Their staff are always friendly, welcoming, and accommodating. The rooms are elegant, modern, and unique with a fireplace and jacuzzi tub with stunning views of the lake and Aerial lift

I stayed in a room that faced the harbor. Lots of glass and a pair of binoculars were provided. Call the hotel though because the staff was super nice and hands on.

"1003 for bridge view."
"Choose harbor view for stunning sunsets and canal view to see the Ariel lift bridge in action."
"Corner rooms have to be fantastic but we were very happy with a bottom floor facing the Canal and Bridge."
"Next time we are going to try a room on the canal side as the street side tends to interrupt our sleep."
"Be prepared for some noise if a ship comes through the canal. The lift bridge horn is so loud the whole hotel shakes."
