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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Xenatraveler A great comfortable room and nice staff
I appreciated all the nice touches such as coffee, tea in room, free upgrade for platinum member. The best deal of all was that prompt 4:30 AM ride to the airport with the free shuttle. The location has a great antique store right across the street and nice gift shops and food choices in the same building.

Skywalk Access makes getting around no matter what the weather, so much easier. Continental Breakfast would make experience better. Parking is nearby for easy access and free! Nice location to do leisure activities of all kinds. We were poolside and it was fairy quiet. The 10:30 closing hour was adhered to making rest more enjoyable.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JDean14 Great service and unexpected room upgrade
My boyfriend and I recently stayed at the Holiday Inn in Downtown Duluth. When we arrived, we were allowed to check in TWO hours early which was awesome since we had been hiking all day at Gooseberry Falls. Also, our room was upgraded to a King suite on the 16th floor (top floor) with a view of the lift bridge. We ordered a small meal from room service and although the food arrived promptly it was pretty average (I recommend skipping the gyro if you do order something). Overall, we had a great time in Duluth and our stay at the hotel was great. I especially loved the noon check out, I haven't been able to sleep in for months so it was nice to not feel rushed in the morning.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JLCHAMB Such great customer service
We had such a great stay!! Very clean and comfortable room. We all slept until about 8:30!!! We love the pool and pool area! Great for kids, which was the MOST important for us! We asked for a later checkout and the girls at the front let us stay an extra hour! More pool time!
Thank you so much for everything!!
