Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by PugsLover Overwhelming chlorine put a damper on our stay
My husband and I stayed at the Holiday Inn while we were in Duluth for the Air Show. We appreciated the ramp's free, covered parking; the complimentary shuttle, which took us to and from the Air Show grounds; and delicious (generously sized) breakfast omelets in the hotel's restaurant. Our room was large and tidy, the bed was comfortable, the bathroom contained thoughtful amenities and plenty of towels. We had to adjust the air conditioning to a shiver-inducing 68 degrees (or lower) to remove dampness from our room. This dampness, we guessed, came from the hotel's indoor pool, as did the overpowering aroma of chlorine. It was difficult to walk down the halls without coughing, in fact. And, each morning, I awoke with bloodshot, swollen and irritated eyes. I mentioned the chlorine problem to the front desk when we checked out, and they said they'd had to use more chlorine than usual after an "incident" in the pool. Best bet: Ask for a room far from the pool.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dkfonz Nice Views of Lake Superior, Ship & Aerial Bridge!
We stayed here one night in August, and thoroughly enjoyed the view of Lake Superior, and the ship Irvin, and the Aerial Lift Bridge! The hotel is in the middle of downtown, so you also have views of the downtown area. Our room was great (although not real clean), and everything worked well. The stainless steel pool and the whirlpool were nice. The sauna did get warm, but the heater was not working properly (only one element was working), so it was very slow to heat up. The sauna benches were a weird design. The sauna could definitely use a remodel, it's old. The hotel was in good shape otherwise. Hotel personnel were helpful, friendly. All in all, we were very pleased with our stay, and will come back again (especially if they get the sauna working properly!).

The Holiday Inn Duluth has as "professional' a staff as I have encountered at any hotel. My room was exceptionally clean and well attended. Great value, as well. All in all, it was a very pleasant stay at this quality Holiday Inn facility in Duluth, MN.
