This beautiful old hotel has large rooms that have been updated with jacuzzi tubs. It has three restaurants, a couple of shops, and a lounge. You can get a walking tour brochure at the front desk of historical buildings in downtown Red Wing, including the Red Wing Shoe Store. The hotel is about one to two blocks from the Mississippi...

The St James has been our list for sometime. We had a great time. Enjoyed Jimmy's Pub and The Veranda! Our room was very spacious and the bed linens were so soft and "Comphy" we had a hard time getting out of bed. Staff was very friendly. The view from the banquet room was spectacular! Thankfully we did not get... 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

We appreciate your comments! Thank you for staying with us during your time in Red Wing. The Iron Works Flat is a beautiful space, but yes, does lie close to the railroad tracks. During the 1900's, trains would adjust their schedules to land in Red Wing in time for dinner at the hotel. Although a little noisy, the tracks add... 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

Thank you for your comments! It is great to hear from Red Wing locals about the St. James. The Port cuisine is rooted on the seasons of the Midwest, with dishes having global influences. Make sure to visit us again for some new dining experiences. 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!

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
