If you want to stay at a classic old hotel, this is the place for you. We had a "premium" room that had a lot of space in it. The bathroom was quite small, but the room was very large and comfortable. All along the river (both MN side and WI side) there are train tracks. It is hard to... More

Picture this: Memorial Weekend, beautiful sunny 75 degree day, outdoor wedding with reception at the historic St James Hotel. Nothing could be more perfect because it was perfect. Nicole and her staff at the St James made this one of the most magical days ever for my son, his new bride and our 250 friends and family. From the planning... More

When I called to make a reservation I requested a specific room on the 4th floor and the clerk told me he would mark it as "do not move' so we assumed it was locked in. Our friends also made a reservation and asked for a room next to ours on the fourth floor. When we checked in we were... More

All the modern conveniences set in a grand river town landmark. All rooms have been renovated and are quiet and elegant with antique furniture that take you back to the days of the river steamboat. Downtown location with many rooms overlooking the Mississippi River. One of my all time favorite hotels.

We had a really nice overnight stay this past Memorial Day weekend. People at the front desk were polite and helpful. The hotel was very clean, well maintained, and tastefully restored in a way that hearkened to its original glory, but brought it into the 21st century. Our room (#306, "The Elinor") had a flatscreen TV, iPod docking station, king... More

Our daughter and her new husband spent their "mini-moon" at the St. James in May of 2014. Their room was beautiful, Red Wing was lovely, but the most amazing thing was the attentiveness of the staff and management at the hotel. They paid close attention to every detail, and really went out of their way to ensure that the young... More

My room had great atmosphere as did the entire hotel. The beds were comfortable. The bathroom looked old fashioned, but everything worked. The location was fabulous also, within walking distance of restaurants and shops.

We had a river view room on the second floor (the Betsy Anne) and enjoyed the amenities that the room had to offer. We wanted to enjoy this historic hotel because it is just that-historical. I am normally a very heavy sleeper but those trains really affected my sleep for the 2 nights we were there. I know there is... More

The Saint James is a gem of an old hotel in a great old river city. We had a massive river view room on the second floor. Beds, bedding and bath were first rate. Be sure to visit Jimmy's on the fifth floor. It's like a 19th century men's club. Very woody cozy place for a drink.
