A reasonably priced hotel...

It is a reasonable price for being in Canal Park... Not on the water but that is a short walk as well. Room was clean and quiet and comfortable. We had a power outage while we were there but the emergency lights kept it bright enough and we kept our door open to let the outside hall light in so that was good. Also the room was nice and dark when the sun came up...good curtain coverage. I would stay here again but just note that the parking is behind the hotel and also across the street. This is not mentioned on their website...we had to hunt for it!

Shopping and restaurants all around. But take not that the parking is either behind the hotel or across the street in front. It doesn't mention where you park on their website so you have to drive around in a lot of traffic.

Great Experience!

My wife andi have stayed at the suites hotel before and have enjoyed it boths times! We loved the convenience of staying right in Canal Park, while also avoiding being slammed with expensive rooms like some of the other hotel chains in the area. While not directly on the water, The Suites are located right across the street from a number of local shops and only a 5 minute walk to the lift bridge or the board walk. Absolutely beautiful!

Reunion with little nephews

We've been traveling in Central America, missing our nephews, now 7&8, who are VERY active. Wanted someplace nicer than we are now accustomed, cozy, with warm pool and kitchen. Didn't want the stress of taking them to a restaurant. Our room fit the bill with out Cheapie20 discount. We even had our own luxurious room, separate from the boys who were exhausted from swimming. Kitchen was complete with dishwasher. Restaurant delivered directly to our room. Pool was good temp for active adult swimmers and older kids, but still a bit cool for skinny little boys. "Fortunately" the huge jacuzzi was missing some part and didn't get as hot as usual, so they could stay warm there since kids were allowed until adult time at 10pm. Unfortunately, we had just taught them to swim and snorkel. Not appreciated by some crabby adults who apparently weren't aware it was kid-friendly time. Plus kids were frustrated they couldn't practice in the larger area. Suggest for the room: need more, warmer, or puffy blankets for the sofa bed. Kids were a bit cold, but still had to wake them at 10 for breakfast. It was included, and I brought it to the room on a tray. Great family time!!

Great Location

The hotel was really conveniently located in the canal of downtown Duluth. Hotel was clean and comfortable, and breakfast was good. Plan to stay again!

New Years Getaway

Location was great, but the staff were indifferent and incompetent. Since it was New Year's Eve, we didn't complain about the drunk people yelling at three am. Since our room was in the middle of the building, there were no windows, which was fine, but a door on either end of the room made the hallway noise way worse. Then the yelling started again at 6am. Housekeeping woke us again at 8. Don't forget to put up "do not disturb". And don't ask the staff for anything. When we left there was an apparently lost girl laying in the hallway next to a case of Beer. Weird.

Lake Ave Cafe, just a half block down the street was the locally owned gem that made the whole experience worth it!!!!!

Sadly disappointed!

My family and I are from the cities. We chose this hotel as it was close to Adventure Zone where we were having a birthday party. So the location was great. Everything else was very disappointing. The continental breakfast was wiped out immediately and put away early so we had to go elsewhere to eat. Also during our visit my 5 yr old acquired a staph infection from the hot tub that needed to be treated at the ER. I would not suggest this hotel for any families.
