"Good hotel in a decaying neighbourhood"
The rooms were clean and comfortable but pricey for this level. The neighbourhood was run down with many shops and offices shuttered.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very pleasant. The staff was very friendly.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great room, with a good view. No noise, comfortable beds. Would definitely book againGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to Canal Park"
This Hotel was within walking distance to the sightseeing/shopping in Canal Park, but a lot less expensive that the Hotels within Canal Park. Room was clean and service was excellent.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The bed was really comfortable. The staff was nice and the parking was handy.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very beautiful and has great restaurants"
The hotel is very nice, the staff couldn't have been more friendly. The room was very comfortable and the pools were relaxing and well kept. We ate at both restaurants in the building and enjoyed them. The location is only a couple of blocks to the harbor and you can take sky-walks the entire way if you choose. I also felt safe leaving my vehicle in […] the parking garage which was also very nice. Thanks Holiday Inn Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

I like this hotel and have stayed there many times. I was surprised on how the downtown Duluth has turned into a ghetto though.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Fair stay. No continental breakfast."
Eh! Nothing special. Will not return if the better hotels have room.Genuine Expedia guest review
It was a nice central location for my purpose. I'm generally pleased with the service. But I wish they told my that the password to access wifi changes every Sunday.Genuine Expedia guest review
Efficient and friendly staff. Free parking! Our room was clean and had beautiful furnishing and linens. However it's a bit uncomfortable to walk out onto the street level right into a crowd of very interesting people...Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Boarded up buildings grace downtown Duluth these days. This room we were given faced the dark alleys of Duluth. Musty-smelling to say the least. Only plus was that it was quiet at night. Stay away from pool-facing rooms if you can. This hotel was probably glorious in 1995.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Duluth Getaway"
The hotel is very clean and the rooms are very comfortable. I chose it because it's close to Canal Park and the things that we were in Duluth to do, it has a pool, it was a priced competitively, and because of the Holiday Inn brand. My kids and I were very happy with our stay at this hotel!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We wanted to be able to walk to the fireworks on the 4th. We did a lot of walking, but don't walk alone. You are in the heart of the city. The hotel was very nice and we the kids loved the pool.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A little agey and far"
Even tho. some surface rehab has been done and is nice some aspects still look old . AAC not in great shape. Share elevators with all staff including cleaning carts. Limited tourist info. Advertised as near Canal park but it is not too near. Far walk in dingy, hot skyway or thru neighborhood which looked old and with loiterers. Had messed up registration […] at national level but they did correct it. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel. Two great pools. Great stay!"
We came to Duluth for a two night get away. I traveled with my children ages 10, 11 & 13. The hotel suited us perfectly. We did our sightseeing during the day and spent evenings at the hotel. The swimming pools were both perfect. The game room/arcade was quite small but we did spend some time in there too and enjoyed it. Our room was clean. The common […] areas were clean. Check in and check out were a breeze. Their price was reasonable I was thrilled to have a downtown hotel with free parking. I will definitely be staying here again.

This is the second time we stayed at this hotel. They renovated since last year, so the rooms were even nicer. Even though the hotel isn't right on the Lake Walk or Canal Park, it's only a few blocks' walk away. The only things we didn't like was that there isn't a continental breakfast, and the fact that there's a bus stop immediately in front of the […] street entrance of the hotel. It results in being a gathering place for some of the less affluent locals. Not enough to keep us from staying again, however. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Convenient to interstate, nice view of downtown"
Room was dusty, bathroom tub was slippery as well as the bathroom floor. The room was nice sized and the bed was comfortable. The restaurant had great food and service was great.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel close to Canal Park"
Everything seemed well maintained and was very comfortable. Didn't realize I was getting a room by the pool. It was pretty noisy!!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good room, Great Location"
We were all very pleased with this hotel. First of all, the parking ramp was very useful, since there is no place to park in Downtown Duluth except in a ramp. The parking is free to those staying in the hotel. The hotel is nicely situated in a central location. The hotel staff are extremely friendly and helpful. I liked the discounted tickets to local […] attractions. We had a great time, and hope to return to Duluth some day. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place to stay"
We had a great time , check in to check out was perfect!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Housekeeping Staff did not replenish shampoo and lotion when refreshing room, nor did they replace used glasses with clean ones. They did readily supply those item when requested, however.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Nice hotel, but we had an expensive bag of tools stolen from the parking ramp overnight. Maybe should have surveillance cameras.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice and new interior"
The location is easy to get to. The beds were super comfortable with the big pillows. Our room was newly redone and very up to date. Happy that Porter's restaurant is open for breakfast which was excellent. Plus the price of our room was extremely reasonable in comparison to other rooms in the Duluth metro area. Will stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Great hotel downtown.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"I like cheese."
It was nice, but I wish I had known about the special deals (e.g., the Canadian special, which is $89 / night). I guess hotels.com didn't save me money on this stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"There are better places to stay in Duluth"
Needs a good cleaning and updating. There are much nicer properties in Duluth at this price point. Room had no outside view was on pool side, very noisy. Don't stay on floors below 7.Positives - Good location and parking was free.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
My girlfriends and I went for a night and found the Holiday Inn Downtown to be perfect! Great location, nice staff, and very clean and modern looking hotel. Would definitely stay againGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Noisty in the evening"
Pool does not close until 10:30. People on the 8th to 10th floors hear all the shrieking from youngsters and their running around the hallways. Not good if you want to just relax or watch TV and impossible to sleep until the pool closes. We were not told about this when we booked, and as early risers, this is an issue.Genuine Expedia guest review
Great stay! Close to rose garden... nice walk way...Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel close to canal park"
Enjoyed my stay but with room cost would be.nice if a breakfast was included.Genuine Expedia guest review
Bra läge på hotellet.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
12/20/14 ecorafterguy Moorhead, Minnesota
First of all, the hotel is pretty good. It's clean, with the typical Minnesota decor (I.e., hockey, ice, trees). The rooms are clean but shockingly small. Functional for business and not exactly conducive to relaxing. The stainless steel pools are a nice touch. The staff was average, not super friendly but not rude either. The neighborhood really detracts from this hotel. It's a downtown hotel so you get the seedy crowd that is often present in cities. Duluth itself is pretty rough, in my opinion, and it really shows downtown.
"Downtown, but run down."
12/16/14 Dan M Silver Bay, Minnesota, United States
Although freshly remodeled, not refurbished. Friendly, professional staff. Front entrance sketchy, a lot of questionable types hanging around. Garage not meant for large trucks. No place for a nice dinner. Lounge needs attention, remodeling and cleaning, manager watching TV, staff busy with regulars, off duty staff. Room was dusty, heater/ac needed cleaning. Seal on window failed, had to look out foggy window. Shuttle dropped me off, but failed to pick me up after calling front desk. Waited an hour at hospital, took cab back to hotel. Good downtown location, with easy access to all downtown shopping and attentions. Youth hockey players took over the place on Saturday, very noisy public spaces, pools packed. Slow elevators.
"Not bad, but not great either"
12/16/14 ZephyrMarie Montrose, Minnesota
We appreciated the newly renovated room and the location of the Holiday Inn, and the good customer service, but that's about it. The parking garage is a tad confusing with an odd entry that had many people almost entering the wrong way and then many people completely blocking traffic. The elevators are VERY slow - the slowest I've ever encountered. We ended up with a King Suite and were hoping our toddler would be able to sleep on the sofa sleeper, but no such luck since we ended up being located right next to the extremely loud pool area. Thankfully the bedroom door was quiet with the door closed, but once you were in the living room, it was ridiculously noisy.
"Fantastic 16th Floor View of Lake Superior"
12/12/14 Aimie M
I stayed on the 16th floor with an awesome view of Lake Superior! It was a fantastic room, clean and well maintained. I also very much enjoyed the Keurig K-Cup coffee maker - much easier and more modern than the standard hotel coffee maker.
"Convenient to downtown & Canal Park"
12/04/14 deepwoods Minnesota
This is located in the middle of downtown Duluth and many attractions are walking distance from the hotel. The skyway system will get you most places out of the weather in the winter. There is an attached parking ramp, parking is free for hotel patrons. Staff are helpful, there is free daily paper and Starbucks coffee in the lobby for guests. A plus in my book, comfortable beds at the Holiday Inn compared to the highly over-rated sleep number air mattresses at the name brand competition hotel located just a few blocks further south. My only complaint- Wifi speed in my room was abysmally slow. I needed to connect to complete some work and it took over 3 hours to do about 20 minutes worth of work. It appeared the connection was seriously overloaded by hotel patrons. Time for a serious upgrade....
"Well placed inregards to Cannel Park"
12/03/14 tom k Thunder Bay, Canada
The ease of using the skywalk to the arena was great. If you have a full size truck the parking garage is not the that friendly. Also unloading your belongs is not the best . Not enough luggage carts. The pool in our area was very nice looking although we did not really had a chance to use it as it was fairly full all the time.The pool on the lower levels was less used it looked nice as well but I not see a hot tub ,does not mean there was not one. The room was pretty well as posted as in the pics they supply for viewing.The bath room needed a small repair at the ceiling but nothing major .If you have an agenda in the Canal Park area then this is one of the places to stay. It is a little pricey for what you get ,they should supply breakfast as many other hotels in that area do .
"Convenient location and reasonably priced"
This hotel includes free parking and a convenient location downtown not far from UMD and St. Scholastica. Rooms are clean but nothing fancy ....pretty good square footage. At $83 I would select this over most other options .....get a good breakfast at the old school Uncle Louie's Café several blocks away via car
Nice hotel. Lobby and rooms were nice. Parking garage was good. Located near anything downtown. Staff was very accommodating. Easy to get in and out of. Nice view of the city if you are on the upper floors.
"Our first pick! Chris & Heather from Ashland, WI"
11/17/14 Mazzella_creations Ashland, Wisconsin
When my husband and I stay in Duluth our first choice is always Holiday Inn & Suites in downtown Duluth! We have never had a complaint while staying in this hotel. Our room is always nice and often upgraded! We love the convenience of this hotel to shopping, restaurants, and canal park! The staff is always nice and helpful. The last time we stayed at this location was November 7th-9th for an event called Gales of November that was occurring over at the DECC. We got a room on the 9th floor with a wonderful view of the canal and we were excited to be near the pool! We started staying at this hotel before they upgraded everything and while we enjoyed it then we continue to come back to this no complaint hotel every time!
11/03/14 Tracy E Apple Valley, Minnesota
We stayed here for the first time this past weekend. We usually stay down in canal park but I am glad we decided to give this hotel a chance! The parking was convenient (ramp). It was connected via a skyway which had a number of great restaurants and shops. It was also walking distance from many other shops and restaurants in the downtown area. Check-in was smooth and the view from our 16th floor room was absolutely stunning of Lake Superior!
