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.

We stayed here for our Anniversary. The hotel was recommended to us. It is a very clean hotel. It is a very old hotel with lots of history. We enjoyed our stay. It is a very quiet hotel. Did not even notice we had neighbors in the next room. If you like old and history this hotel is a must.... More

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

My wife and I attended a wedding at the St. James, and decided that staying at the hotel was a must. Red Wing is a great little town only a small drive (hour and a half) from the Twin Cities. The St. James' is full of history, both inside and out. It's a beautiful brick structure with vintage decor. Hotel... More

It's fun to escape for a few days a couple times a year to this historic hotel. It's large enough for conferences, retreats, etc. The rooms are well furnished. We usually get a hot tub room when possible. The staff is top notch. There are areas of the hotel showing wear and tear and the rooms are not 100% perfect.... More

Thank you for your comments. We love to hear from guests that return multiple times throughout the year. Each season seems to have a special charm at the hotel. From winter months, nestling in at Jimmy's Pub by the fire, or spending star-lit summer evenings on the Veranda Patio, we love the different options that are available. Thank you for... More

Our room overlooked the street which wasn't terrible. The noise wasn't an issue. The room was an older room and it had a great feel, like a true old western room. High ceilings and period style furnishings. The bed was amazing! The bathroom was small but nice. We ate dinner in the resturant and wasn't that impressed with the food.... More

My wife and I had been planing on going to the St James for quite some time. We stayed in a room overlooking the river that was clean and comfortable. I realize that this is an historic hotel, but I do think that some updates need to happen. The bathroom was very small and I spent more time dodging the... More

We stayed at the room facing the river. The room is great and hasn't lose it charm. It was very clean. Furniture has some wear and tear but it is expected for an antique. I like it! The mattress is comfortable. Train depot is next to the Mississippi river so expect some noise. We know this and it didn't bother... More
