“Winter Wonderland”
Reviewed 14 December 2013

We were up for the meeting of the Beargrease Sled Dog Race. We choose this hotel for it's location close to downtown Duluth and easy walking to all the shops and restaurants on Canal Park, so we could do some Christmas shopping. But the highlight was and always will be was being on the big lake. This hotel set the northwoods mood perfectly, spacious, beautiful décor throughout. Friendly helpful staff, clean and organized, set up to handle business or pleasure travelers. Our room was beautiful, so clean and inviting. Well stocked breakfast with a wonderful selection to meet all needs. Highly recommend this place and time of year. So bring your camera and walking shoes and lose yourself in this place.

Room Tip: We stayed in 206 facing the parking lot, but at night we had a wonderful view of the lift bridge and...

From the quick online reservation when I'd run into problems at another hotel, to the apple cinnamon fragrance when we came in, the view, the breakfast, the fireplace, the shower, the maids, it was all so nice. I felt pampered and relaxed and restored after an awful week at work. Every employee made us feel welcome. We've been to Duluth many times, but this might be the best place we've been to, and with Duluth, that's saying a lot.

walking distance to downtown, which makes grabbing a bite to eat convenient, especially if you have multiple mouths to feed that rarely hunger at the same time.
beautiful fireplace to relax by and soak in some warmth.
rooms are nice, very clean.
staff was friendly and helpful.
just booked rooms for a Dec ski trip, am hoping the 2nd time is as good as the 1st was. : )

After many years of staying in Duluth, we found a great place to stay in Canal Park. Our room had a patio and view right on Lake Superior, with the walking trail 20 feet away. Not only a great view but great people watching. The room is detailed so nicely, as well as the several common rooms. Breakfast is nice and the staff friendly. The location is ideal for a tourist visitor or a convention visit. I particularly appreciate the environmental practices they have put in practice.

Room Tip: if you can get a lakeside room

We always use tripadvisor for lodging but normally stay at the bigger chains. We did not have reservations when we got there on thursday but it had good reviews and they had a room available for two nights. Our room was very nice and clean. Breakfast was very good and had many selections. It had a very roomy breakfast area. The location was perfect to walk to everything in this area. The staff was friendly and courteous. Plenty of parking. I would recommend this place to friends and plan on staying there again.

The Canal Park Lodge has it all! Great location, beautiful decor, unbelievably clean and well kept, and a front desk staff that is not only friendly and accommodating, but extremely competent as well. I would absolutely recommend this place to family and friends! We stayed over Labor Day weekend.
