The new public parking deck at the Courtyard by Marriott hotel in Downtown Duluth is now open. The parking deck will provide 175 free spaces for public use when visiting downtown Duluth.

There are two parking levels with separate entrances. The public parking level entrance is on Ridgeway Road. The entrance on Hill Street, which is not open yet, will provide a mix of parking for hotel guests and free public parking.

Construction continues on the new Courtyard by Marriott, a 4-story, 102-room hotel adjacent to the city’s Festival Center. The 2-story parking garage with 344 public parking spaces will serve downtown and Parsons Alley. When completed, the deck will have a combined 226 public parking spaces on the first and second level and 118 hotel parking spaces on the second level.

The hotel architecture is tailored to fit-in with existing styles found around Duluth’s Town Green and is expected to provide much needed hotel rooms in convenient, close proximity to downtown events.
