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

I needed to stay in the area for a couple nights on business recently, and the hotel choices seemed ... lacking. I chose the St. James because it seemed to be the only full service hotel available. I was pleasantly impressed. Maybe my expectations were low to begin with, but the room was large, the lobby had shops and a... More

The hotel is wonderful, three restursnts, stores, and wonderful historical rooms. We have stayed here 5 times and it only gets better. The hotel is right along the Mississippi. This hotel is a keeper! 5*

We totally loved our room here. Beautiful decorating, doors, and high ceilings. We also had a great time in the jacuzzi. It stayed warm long after filling it. We ate at Jimmy's and liked the burger and southwest salad. The hotel is walking distance from shops, local theatre, and the Y.

For value I am not sure; I traveled here for business a few times and I had a business rate which was 100/ night. I don't know their normal price. However, I get a basic room and it is always huge, big bed and a med sized bathroom - the space is so beautiful. Antique furnishings and old style wood... More

The historic portion of the St. James is wonderful and full of history. The newer portion is somewhat dated - has a 70's vibe. Our room, 222, was huge with one wall of exposed brick from the original hotel. The bathroom with the whirlpool was in need of updating; had cracking walnut veneer on the counter and yellowing jets in... More

This was just a one-night stop, but we were impressed enough to plan a return trip. The staff were fabulous, and the food yummy. Did not get a chance to visit the pub, sadly. The rooms were big, and lots of history. The bed was HUGE, and very comfortable and clean. Wonderful views from our corner room. We will definately... More

Checked into the king whirlpool suite to find peeling wallpaper, rusty sinks and knicked up furniture. The whirlpool was for one and I doubted it's level of cleanliness. The front desk was helpful and offered to find us a different room or send up champagne. We also had to listen to the trains throughout the night. For 180.00 per night,... More

I visited this hotel with the Road Scholar Tour Group during our fairly brief stop in Red Wing for a little shopping/sightseeing and lunch in the hotel. We were traveling the Upper Mississippi River area. This is a beautiful and historic hotel that is fun to wander in. The large, rather elegant dining room was reserved for our group and... More
