We stayed one night in this lovely old-fashioned hotel. We were sorry we couldn't stay longer and ramble around the place, looking at all the history this hotel has to offer. It's not some place you should stay where you can't take your time and enjoy it. Unfortunately that was our situation so we really want to go back again... More

We stayed two nights but it felt like longer. We spent most of our time in the hotel. Shopping, restaurants, spa and more. It was very romantic. My husband and I were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary and I could not have imagined a better place to spend it. The staff was very friendly.

This is a great place to stay. Front desk staff is very helpful. Nice fine dining in the quaint brick basement restaurant, relaxing lounge upstairs, and it is well kept overall. I like to see the added touch of Aveda products for toiletries. The older part of the hotel has high ceilings and is very unique. Only drawback is because... More

Several of us stayed at the St. James last week while we were in Red Wing for a workshop for civic historic preservationists. Of course the St. James was the perfect location, with its exceptional restoration and furnishings. My spacious room with antique furnishings overlooked the historic depot and the Mississippi River. I'm impressed that they have been able to... More

We stayed for 4 nights and had a spacious room that worked well for our daughter and her wheelchair. The antiques are beautiful and our room had 2 bay windows giving a great view of the Mississippi River. Train whistle was a delight for our daughter and did not wake us during the night. Staff was very helpful and responsive.... More

We bought the Victorian Getaway package for our anniversary. We stayed in room 211 which was on the 2nd floor, at the end of the hallway, on the building corner with one side/bedside overlooking Main Street. There was a constant rumble of motorcycles outside the window. Not sure the street noise would be an issue in the winter or if... More

I stay here for work frequently. The rooms are charming with original details and touches. The toiletries are Aveda and the towels are very nice. You can hear the trains whistle by all night which is pretty neat. 2 of the restaurants & bars (The Jimmy and The Port) both have fantastic staff who remember you - makes you feel... More

We have stayed at the Saint James several times on trips to my husband's hometown of Red Wing and have never been disappointed.Most recently e brought a group of four couples to explore the Red Wing and Lake Pepin area. All our friends were extremely pleased with the Saint James. It's a good idea to book well in advance for... More

I was disappointed with my stay at the St James. I attended a wedding at the hotel and stayed overnight. First I went to the Veredna to have a late lunch while I waited for my room to be ready. From 2-4, the menu was limited to few items, and they were out of one. I order the cheese curds... More

Driving around on Memorial Weekend, decided to stay at the St. James. We negotiated a price before we stayed, the front desk was fabulous! Dinner at the Veranda, was fabulous, had the Surf & Turf which was steak and shrimp on a skewer served with wild rice and the sauce was excellent that went with this. The room was very... More
