Meeting Venues & Room Set Up

The Park Point Marina Inn, Duluth’s award-winning waterfront hotel has a meeting room that can divide into two rooms. The main meeting room is the Lake Superior conference room. When it divides, it becomes the Harborview room and the Boat Club room. There is an outside balcony deck that attaches to all of the rooms. Because the meeting room is located on the 2nd floor and overlooks the Duluth harbor, it has one of the best scenic views of all the meeting rooms in Duluth.
