We scheduled our last night of travels to be on the Canal Park in Duluth and this Hotel looked great. The staff at the front desk was very friendly and gave good information. The hotel is on just the first 4 floors with the upper floors privately owned. There is a nice pool, a kiddie pool, and a nice hotel tub & sauna. The hotel provides an "Adult Only" swim time at night from 10-11pm.
It should be noted that many of the rooms are on the interior with no windows. To have a window costs a bit more. The hotel is about 100 yards long...and so are the hallways to the only set of elevators. The hotel offers a free drink next door at the pub.
The hotel also includes a free hot/cold breakfast in the lobby, but seating is very limited. Don't wait until the end of the breakfast time to get food as the line is very long.
The rooms are nice and give that "old warehouse" feel from the early 20th century.
However, there downside was also the room. The maid left dirty towels in the bathroom, a trash can that had old trash and cosmetics in it, and absolutely no toilet paper. Staff were quick to come with toilet paper and to empty our trash, but it makes you wonder if they did a good cleaning. Speaking of cleaning, the drop ceilings in the bathroom are rusty and many pieces of furniture are nicked and veneer is chipped off. We were charged for the room safe but the key codes did not work and it was not available for us to use. Parts of the room looked as if they had not been cleaned in a year or more.
The hotel is about 20 years old but it needs a good facelift. It is the kind of hotel that has great appeal and history, but needs management that looks to do a major cleaning of one room a day for a year. We also had to report broken glass in the carpet outside our suite which nearly cut one foot on the walk to the pool.
Overall the staff was friendly and helpful. The rooms were tired and in need of a good upgrade. the bed was extremely nice.
The hot breakfast was very good.
