A new 70 room, three story hotel is proposed for 1000 Minnesota Avenue on Duluth's iconic Park Point. The hotel if approved likely would begin construction in Spring 2016.
The new design is a drastic cut back in size compared to the nine story glass tower originally proposed for the site. That design drew great concern and criticism from the surrounding neighborhood as it was considered to be too large for the area. Concerns also were centered around the increase in traffic for such a large hotel.
What will go before the Duluth Planning Commission at their September 8th meeting is a three story structure that will feature 70 hotel rooms, a pool, lounge area, and great views of the Lake Basin Marina. Unique to the plan would also be a 900 square foot convenience store.The store would be located within the font lobby and would be open to the public, most of which would likely be customers from the marina steps away from the front door.
While it is unclear at the moment if this hotel will be independently run or feature a brand name documents suggest that it could potentially be branded as an AmericInn. The company is based on of the Twin Cities and currently has 203 locations mainly in the Midwest. The hotels are known for their continental breakfasts along with the up to 14 different guest rooms floor plans.
