My husband and I traveled to Red Wing from La Crosse last year, same time, for our anniversary. We were treated so well, and upgraded and had the best experience. We decided to do it again this year, and were pleasantly greeted with the same top notch customer service! Our room, which was upgraded again by them, was ironically the... More

What a great place to stay. We were there on our first visit to Red Wing. The hotel room was large with some antique furniture. One wall of our room was an exterior wall of the original hotel. That was pretty cool. There was some construction going on in the hotel during our stay, but that didn't bother us at... More

My first time in Red Wing and this was the hotel that was booked for our band by the Sheldon Theatre (which was two blocks away.) We arrived early and the Front Desk Clerk (Katie) went out of her way to help us get into our rooms in a short amount of time as well as provide great recommendations and... More

My family and i had a wonderful weekend at the St. James for my niece's reception and dance. We had several rooms booked, and everyone at the front desk was extremely helpful, and a "special shout out" to Katie! The rooms were all unique and nicely furnished, and the hotel was beautiful. THANKS so much for everything, we hope to... More

It may be record cold in MN, but had the lovely long weekend wedding event at the St. James. 150 wedding guests....not one complaint. Venue lends itself to the attitude of wait needed for wedding events. There are enough spaces to spread out and explore. Rooms vary not only in name, wallpaper and design.....but all share excellent quality sheets, towels... More

Stayed here last Friday night as part of a work retreat. There is a great deal of history in the building and in Red Wing, so if you are in Red Wing to shop antiques and want to stay in an antique hotel, this is just the place. For me, I'd prefer a modern hotel. I'm not impressed with lumpy,... More

I was so so SO impressed by the SJH. It's historic, but shows some wear (some worn carpeting here and there, some bathroom wallpaper was peeling at the corners), but it was built over 100 years ago. Cut it some slack, Jack. I had a certificate for a free Queen deluxe, they upgraded me to a king deluxe (free upgrade!).... More

We were in town for Thanksgiving and so spent the night here - didn't have to twist my arm. We usually stay in the summer, so it was a nice change. We had a beautiful room overlooking the river, as always decorated to fit the era of the hotel. Each room is named after a steamboat, which is an interesting... More

This is not a review of the hotel as a place to stay - haven't stayed there. It is, however, a response to those reviews that generally comment favorably on the restaurants and staff in the hotel. We've been to the Thanksgiving buffet about five times, most recently this year. While prices have gone up modestly during this time the... More

We are deeply sorry to hear about your experience with our annual Thanksgiving Harvest Buffet. Every year, we listen to suggestions that are made to us, and consistently work on improving our holiday buffet offerings for a better experience. Over the years, guests have requested a full “make-yourself” salad bar instead of pre-mixed salad. We listened to your comments, made... More
