My friend and I stayed in the Executive suite for three nights from July 2,3,4, 2014. We loved the place from the moment we were checked in by the charming Marseen. She was helpful, courteous, knowledgeable about the area and a real asset to her employer. Another employee who deserves acknowledgment is Tanner who works the Tavern where we enjoyed... More

I travel a lot and I understand that not every property is a Marriott or Starwood property. Some are quaint little bed and breakfasts and that's their charm. Well, this place is FAR from charming! First off, there is a heavy set, African American woman at the front desk who is the most rude service industry person I have ever... More

I recently attended a 3-day conference hosted by Carleton College, and while other hotels were available in town, many of us chose to stay at the Archer House. The convenience of being within walking distance to campus and to the shops and eateries in town was a major factor in my choice of this hotel. The front desk personnel were... More

Yes, it is very historical and I appreciate that, but with what they are charging, I expected more. I liked the woodwork throughout the hotel. What I did not like was that there were several areas within the halls and room that you could smell the must. The Tavern Bar had a bartender that was rather short with us and... More

The Archer House is perfectly located for people visiting St. Olaf or Carleton Colleges. The hotel staff is mostly friendly and helpful, and tries hard to keep the 130-year old place functioning. Fans of historic hotels will enjoy the old rooms, the creaky staircases, and the very authentic Lounge. Fans of modern comforts and conveniences may struggle with all this... More

No one seems to mention the stench of the Indian restaurant that permeates this property. The staff is lovely, but the rooms are tired (despite the quoted $1 million dollar recent renovation) and the shops on the first floor, other than the great little gift shop at the end, are poorly executed. The whole place is just odd. I realize... More

My wife & I stayed March 14 for the night, we had booked a evening snow shoeing trip through The Gear Resourse Outfitters next door. The Archer House is a historic hotel and with that you get what you pay for. We were lucky- were given the Bridal Suite (yippee) which had a very comfortable queen bed, flat screen TV,... More

The Archer House is an interesting study in contrasts. The lobby is an elegant period piece, but the signs designating the rooms look like cheap folk art. The furnishings in the rooms are high-end, but the heat and air conditioning comes from a noisy old unit mounted up on the wall. The beds are luxurious, but the light bulbs are... More

Business trip and this was very convenient and very accommodating - both the staff and the room. Great historical property! The only problem we had was the shade wouldn't stay down but the night person helped the first night and the maintenance man came and gave us a short term remedy for our second night. Everyone was helpful. Great bar... More

We stayed one night at The Archer House for a holiday family get together. The hotel is located in downtown Northfield on the river and very close to many restaurants, pubs and shopping. The hotel has been completely refurbished and our 2 room suite was lovely. The sitting area was large with a full-size pull out sofa, dresser, small table... More
