Travelers' Choice
Premier location and unparalleled amenities. Stately architecture and rich heritage. While all these qualities make the Hotel Winneshiek unique in Decorah, our warm welcome and passionate embrace of the community give the Winn a quality of hospitality unique unto itself. Situated in the heart of Decorah, the Winn is part of a thriving main street full of local shops, restaurants, galleries, parks and unique attractions like the Vesterheim Museum. The hotel also offers the region’s best wedding and event venues, including the historic Opera House, with its original tin walls and ceiling, beautiful mezzanine level and dramatic stage. From the day it opened in 1905, the Hotel Winneshiek set a standard for elegance that has yet to be exceeded. More than a century later, the Winn gleams brighter than ever, honoring the past while exuding a vitality that will make every stay a treasured part of your own history.

Whirlpool room was great. Very nice bar area. And perfect location! Parking very convenient. Think bathrobes. particularly in the whirlpool room, would be a nice touch. Gorgeous lobby area. Will be nice when breakfast will be served again.

We will not be returning. Disappointed overall. Can't control own temp, no window to open, too hot. Nice decor, but thats it. Staff pleasant, but not overly accommodating. Public religious event in lobby, inappropriate.

Great location, clean rooms, and a good night's rest. Helpful staff and comfortable stay. Decorah is a hub for exploring the Upper Iowa River, winding through the Driftless region and driving to the Mississippi River. It's a great place to rest for the evening, and start your day out right!

The Rooms were clean, but the amenities, mainly the bar, need work with their customer service. If you are coming for a place to meet up with friends and hang out the bar only stays open till 9:00pm. We have stayed before and they have never closed this early. And there were at least 16 people wanting to use it at 9pm that were turned away.
