Mother’s Day Brunch in Duluth

April 30, 2014

With the coming of spring also comes that special day when we honor our mothers who have put up with us all these years.  We wish all the mothers a very Happy Mother’s Day on May 11!

We hope you get to spend the day together and offer up these Mother’s Day suggestions:

Our top Brunch picks are Midi’s Restaurant in the Fitger’s complex, Greysolon Ballroom featuring Blackwoods Restaurant, and, one of our favorites, brunch at Glensheen Mansion featuring Savories Catering (this one includes a tour!).  Of course, our very own breakfast is a top notch buffet with yummy, gooey cinnamon rolls, meats, eggs, a yogurt parfait bar and much more!

There are some other fun and interesting suggestions to make for this day.  Fairlawn Mansion in Superior, Wisconsin is offering half price admission for tours.  The Miller Hill Mall has a Mother’s Day fashion show starting at 9 am.

Weather permitting, a walk in Canal Park or along the Lakewalk is always enjoyable and it’s one of the free things to do in Duluth!

If you are staying at the Edgewater Hotel while visiting your mother, access to the Lakewalk is right out the back door and our breakfast buffet is on site.  And you will certainly enjoy the view of Lake Superior while you are here.  Happy Mother’s Day!

Award Winning Site!

April 8, 2014

You’ve seen our new website and now we can announce that it is an award winning site!  Westmoreland Flint designed our new site and recently won a Gold Professional ADDY (American Advertising Award) for their creative design.

In case you haven’t ventured beyond our blog, I would invite you to check out a couple of our website features.  Duluth is full of fun and interesting things to do and we understand that sometimes you need to do something to fit your mood.  We have and “app” for that.  On our Things To Do page you tell us what you are feeling like and we give you suggestions to fit your mood.

We make choosing a room to fit your needs easy with our selection tool to help narrow the focus based on what you tell us you need.  Visit our Rooms page and test it out!

We usually have some kind of deal or package going on and now you can search by the month in which you want to visit to find the best.

Kids! We have something for you! Visit our Just For Kids page for fun games and coloring pages.

Of course, visiting us at the Edgewater Hotel & Waterpark is way more fun that visiting our website so make a reservation today and enjoy the fun!

Upgrades at The Edge

March 31, 2014

In addition to our new hot breakfast provided by Savories Catering, we have upgraded our fitness center and Sunrise Lounge.  A coffee shop and business center are next on the upgrade list.  We can’t wait for you to check out our new facilities!

New Fitness Center at The Edge in Duluth MN

The fitness center has been moved from its smaller location to a larger space so we could bring you all the best to keep you healthy and fit while staying at the Edgewater.  The new room has 3 treadmills (no more waiting!), two elliptical machines, a recumbent and an upright bicycle, two free weight benches, along with medicine balls and mats for all your fitness needs.  In addition to the beautiful view of Lake Superior, we have also installed 4 flat screen televisions with remotes.  Water, sanitizing wipes and towels are also provided.

The Sunrise Lounge has been a favorite spot to relax and now it’s even better!  Several new games have been added including darts, fooze ball and pool which can be played for less than a dollar.  We also installed a 60” and two 42” televisions so you have more options to view sports, news and other programming.

Soon we will have a coffee shop located in our main lobby which will feature Duluth Coffee.  Guests can purchase lattes, mochas, blended/ice drinks along with our famous cinnamon rolls and other baked goods.  It will be open 6 am – 2 pm daily.

A new business center will also be opening soon in our classic building.  It will have 2 computer stations, a printer, and a lounge area with flat screen television.  You can be away from home and still get everything done!

We are pleased to be able to offer more to our guests than ever before.  Come check out our new features as well as enjoying what makes us great – the Edge Waterpark!
