Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) - Duluth's new Park Point Marina Inn, which opened last Friday, is already reporting big numbers for Grandma's Marathon weekend.

The new hotel sits on the original site of the Duluth Boat Club.

Managers say the hotel has 68 guest rooms, a business room, and a great view of the harbor, to name a few features.

With Grandma's Marathon just two weeks away, hotel Executive Manager Michelle Mehtala says they're feeling the demand for rooms.

"We have approximately 4 rooms left for Grandma's Marathon," said Mehtala, "and we've already sold out several weekends throughout the summer."

Managers say those busy weekends include Bluesfest, and the Fourth of July.
