Fun hotel with a ton of history if you're into that kind of thing. Each room has its own decor, the staff is super friendly, and it has 3 sweet restaurants of varying priciness. Lots of outdoors-y stuff to do in the area including hiking and disc golf . Also recommend checking out the Red Wing brewery just a short... More

We were on the second floor looking towards the waterfront. The train tracks are very close, I am a very poor sleeper and did not hear the trains all night. The history of the hotel is great. We did not get to enjoy the main restaurant as it was closed on a Sunday eve. but looked like it would be... More

Located on Main Street in Red Wing, the St James is a charming bit of history. The Orel overlooks the Mississippi River and the train depot. The hotel is very clean and the rooms are very comfortable. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

My daughter surprised me with a weekend in Red Wing, staying at the St. James and enjoying a wonderful Mother's Day brunch at the hotel. The hotel in general, the staff, the rooms, and the ambiance were truly fantastic! with a bad back and arthritic hips, I often have trouble with hotel beds. No so here -- truthfully, this was...

The St. James Hotel has been (and continues to be) updated but keeps its Victorian ambiance. The portions under construction are generally not bothersome and didn't detract from our experience. The beds are incredibly comfortable, with very luxurious bedding. Although we did not eat in any of the 4 in-house restaurants, we did enjoy the bar and live music offered... More

I was in Red Wing on a Saturday night for a conference-type event. I spent very little time in the room, which was kind of a shame. It was a gorgeous, historic room, with a huge bed and a great view of a charming statue across the street. BUT it was the shower that won me over. The water pressure... More

It is just the best place to stay in Redwing. It has restaurants right on the premises if you don't want to leave the hotel. It's near a casino and shopping, The beds are comfotable and they give lots of pillows.

I went with a group of friends for an overnight at the St. James. It's clean and comfortable. (However, parts of the hotel are under construction, which made those areas look unfinished; I was told that more rooms are being added.) Past that, the main attractions were the restaurants (which are good) and shops (which are expensive) inside the hotel... More
