#1 of 5 hotels in Decorah
Certificate of Excellence
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.

Beautifully restored property right in the heart of the happenings of Decorah. We loved that we could walk to eveything we needed! Very clean, friendly staff. The only improvement I would make is a fridge in the room for drinks and leftovers! Will definitely stay again.

The stay was good, the location was right downtown. Close to the reception hall, we where attending. Decorah has some nice stores and restaurant close to hotel. The continental breakfast was disappointing. So plan on breakfast out.

mkf803, Thank you for sharing your experience. We are glad you enjoyed our central location. Our breakfast is a true continental breakfast, but there are a few great options for hot breakfast right out the front doors.
