This hotel, for the duration of our stay, was cheaper than the other 3 next to it and had better reviews. We had tried the Comfort Suites in the past and while pleased, wanted to save a few $. We were not disappointed.
PROS: Within walking distance to everything in Canal Park, next to a brewery, and of course RIGHT on the shore of Lake Superior. (Which the hotel keeps a path snowblowed to the lake walk, very nice.) Lake view rooms would have a stunning view. We chose a city view to save extra $ and in turn our room was huge with a beautiful view of Duluth, especially at night. Entire hotel is spotless, our room had everything we needed with Neutrogena bath products, comfy beds, granite counters, great lighting, ample plug-ins, micro and fridge. From reviews here we requested 3rd floor, end of hall which was for the most part quiet. Interestingly this hotel had a security guard in the night hours that 'looked everyone over' when they entered, which was good! He even was up on our floor scolding a family for letting their kids run the hallway. Housekeeping staff was VERY pleasant every time we saw them.
CONS: As with most hotels in this range, built paper thin. You hear every word people are speaking in the hall and every door shut. The biggest con during our stay was the front-desk staff. First their overall appearance did not match how nice the hotel is. I noticed right away that they seemed to have street clothes on with a nametag. I would expect at least a uniform top in a Hampton? The staff did not seem to mesh well at all, there was a lot of bickering and putting a younger new employee down...in front of patrons trying to check -in. Not impressive. Glad the hotel itself is nice because this was a turn off immediately. If I ran this hotel, I would be getting that front desk staff a classy upgrade.
Overall though - nice place to stay.
