As part of a day trip to Red Wing my husband and I stopped at this hotel for lunch. The location is great and we got to eat on their rooftop terrace which really was a plus as we could enjoy the warm weather, a nice breeze and a nice view as well. The staff was very friendly and attentive... More

My wife and I enjoyed a two day stay at this historic hotel and had a wonderful time. Although the St. James maintained much of the charm of bygone days it has modern amenities that most travelers have come to expect. You do not need to sacrifice a modern bathroom or insufficient heat and air for charm, you get the... More

A beautiful Upper Mississippi in a preserved once major wheat port. Inside the ambience bleeds out of the walls. The rooms are classic Victorian. The basement restaurant is 3-star quality with a great, likeable wait staff. I even stay here an hour south of the Twin Cities even when my business is there.

I'd reserved a standard king room here for a Saturday night. I enjoy staying in historic old hotels, and was looking forward to our visit. Had some last minute itinerary changes on our trip, and needed a room for Friday night also. I called the hotel from the road on Friday morning. The man at the front desk said that... More

I live in RW and recently ate at the Port for the first time in years. The food was amazing! I brought business clients in and we were all highly impressed. The mussels, lamb, steak, mushrooms, drinks all of it 5 star. Great atmosphere and a bit spendy but work it! I do have to give kudos to the staff... More

My wife and I stayed here while on vacation in Minnesota. Magnificently restored old beauty! Classic woodwork and room design, re-pro version of old claw-foot tub (which you never find or use in a typical hotel), concourse level shopping, basement brick and massive stone Euro style bar/restaurant with wrought iron gate. Overall, excellent place to stay and good value for... More

Our bicycling group of 7 stayed here while cycling on the Northern Tier Bicycle Route up the Mississippi River. The hotel is beautifully restored. The rooms were spacious and the linens heavenly! The staff were very accommodating about giving us secure storage space for our bikes so we didn't have to keep them in our rooms. The hotel also offers... More

My wife and I love to stay at the St James when in Redwing. It has a great "Old Hotel" side with a very friendly old style feel. We chose a room with a view of the Mississippi, and rail line. Great view, but a bit noisy as the trains run all night. Closing the window helped a lot. We... More

Time and again we make the trip up north and try to give this hotel another chance. It's a beautiful treasure in the heart of the city along the river, but in at least four separate visits the service is as poor as we've experienced anywhere. The check-in is never smooth, the rooms are never quite cleaned to the standard... More
