Duluth Hotels

Situated on the rocky shores of Lake Superior, Duluth is a harbor city that’s proud of its past, turning the industrial landscape into charming, unique shops and restaurants. The harbor is still full of ships, and many of the red-bricked industrial era facades still line the streets, giving it a pleasant, historical vibe. There’s also natural beauty in abundance, with plenty of parks, and gently sloping mountains in the distance.

Things to see

The abandoned warehouses of the Canal Park area have been refurbished and turned into unique boutiques, art galleries, and restaurants. Sit outside a pavement cafe and watch ships coming into harbor and the waves lapping over the rugged rocks. The Aerial Lift Bridge can be spotted standing over the area, and several times a day you’ll see it rise to allow ships to pass. A great way to enjoy the sights of Lake Superior is to take the North Shore Scenic Railroad. Take a seat onboard a perfectly restored steam train and you can enjoy chugging along the lake, across downtown, as to the shores of Lester River. Not far from the shores of Lake Superior, you’ll find the impressive Miller Hill Mall. With several large anchor stores, as well as plenty of smaller boutiques, it’s a paradise for shoppers. West of the city, Spirit Mountain offers excellent skiing and snowboarding opportunities during the winter months, and once the snow melts, families love the adventure park where the view can be enjoyed from the Alpine Coaster, or while flying through the air on a zip line.

The area is full of 2 and 3 star hotels, meaning Duluth hotel rates are reasonable, and inns or motels are usually the best bet for budget travelers.

Business travelers will also be impressed by many of the hotels in the area with extras such as business centers, desks in rooms, coffee makers, and clock radios to make your trips easier and more comfortable, and with cable television and premium bedding, you can relax after a hard day’s work.
