“Great stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

My husband and I stayed at the St. James for one night. This historic hotel is beautiful. I wish we had more time to explore the hotel. I felt like we were walking through a museum. The front desk staff were very helpful and friendly. Our room had a huge bathroom with a really nice jacuzzi tub. Our bed was extremely comfortable. We had a really relaxing stay. I can't wait to go back!

Normally it does not seem that anything over say 70 bucks is worth it, and that is how we approached this place. Upon opening the door we were very pleasantly surprised at the room size, the decor, and they even had bath robes on the back of the bathroom door, very classy, although we did not use them.
The only thing that could have been better was a little bit more attention to detail on the housekeeping, other than that, great place to say and worth the money. We were here for a wedding and the menu for that we very good also, given that they had to serve a couple hundred people in a timely manner, which they did quite well

We stayed at the St. James the second week in Sept. 2013. We could not have been happier with our choice. The hotel is an amazing historical hotel. It has been lovingly preserved. We were upgraded to the President Suite and the hotel staff could not have been nicer. I would definitely recommend a stay. It's like going back in time. We would definitely stay again.

We just returned from a very nice stay at the St. James Hotel in Red Wing. I was a little hesitant to stay here, as I've done other "grand old hotels" and been disappointed with how run down they were. Not so with the St. James. Someone is not afraid to spend money on the hotel - and it shows. I was amazed at the number of staff people we saw everywhere in the hotel, and their labors are not unnoticed. The rooms were impeccible, the decor truly period and yet well cared for. Our bed was very comfortable and the linens were very nice. From the toiletries to the bathrobes in the rooms to the champagne they sent up to help us celebrate our anniversary - everything was perfect! (Carpet in the hallway of the fourth floor needs to be replaced, but looking around, it's obvious that will be happening soon as all the other floors appear to have new carpet.) Our windows overlooked Main Street and we thought it a lovely view. Our breakfast in the Veranda Cafe was delicious. Looking forward to our next visit!

We stayed at the St. JamesHotel Labor Day weekend. Could not have been more thrilled with the room, amenities and old world charm of the hotel. They have done a great job of capturing the historic feel, with modern touches. I highly recommend this place, but, the staffer working the front desk was having a bad afternoon and evening when we were there. She was rude, dismissive and scared a few guests into simply seeking assistance elsewhere.We we shocked someone so anti-social was in a key service position. If you can ignore the big city rudeness of the front desk lady, you will certainly enjoy the small town charm of this hotel and town.

Room Tip: Great river view rooms available.

We didn't have a reservation but because we were travelling in the middle of the week we were able to get a room. Our room was beautiful, comfortable and very clean. The hotel staff were all very friendly and went out of their way to make you feel at home. We had dinner in The Port dining room and it was very good. We enjoyed our stay so much that we decided to stay an extra night.

We were greeted professionally. We were given a room facing the river and the train tracks. After reading other reviews I was worried about train noise but I wasn't bothered by any noise. I loved the view. The room was lovely and the bed was comfortable. I could have walked around the hotel all day admiring the beautiful woodwork and historic charm. There is free good coffee in the lobby in the morning.
