Situated between Lake Superior and Duluth Harbor Basin, this waterfront hotel is nestled at the foot of the Duluth Aerial Lift Bridge. Free Wi-Fi and a flat-screen TV are provided in every guest room. All waterfront suites at South Pier Inn include private balconies, which provide the opportunity for our guests to look eye-to-eye with ships’ captains, as international vessels enter the harbor under the Aerial Lift Bridge. A refrigerator and tea and coffee-making facilities are also included in each room. Guests can enjoy a walk or enjoy a sunset from the private 400-foot shoreline path at South Pier Inn. A complimentary continental breakfast is served each morning. Duluth Entertainment Convention Center, located across the harbor, is less than 1 mile away. Duluth city centre, Great Lakes Aquarium and Bayfront Festival Park are within 5 minutes’ drive of this hotel.

    The location is absolutely perfect! Such a unique experience to be that close to the lift bridge and to see the ships pass through. Also, we arrived late and the gentleman who checked us is was fantastic!

    The room required a flight of stairs that we didn’t know about. The location was excellent. The view was poor, but was an easy fix by going across the street.
