We stayed at the St. James as part of a family wedding. We arrived a bit early and the hotel graciously accommodated our early arrival so we could relax after our flight. Our room, in the older part of the hotel, was beautiful and well kept. I typically prefer B&Bs for their character, charm and individuality, so I appreciated that... More

The St. James is a hotel from the 1875's and has the most fascinating history. Walking into the lobby to check-in is just the beginning of a wonderful visual experience. The rooms are beautifully decorated and the beds, linens and pillows very comfy..We ate at the Pub and at the Veranda and loved our food and drinks!!! All staff we... More

The staff treated us wonderfully. It was a really nice get away from our busy lives. We also appreciated that there was a business center because of course someone needed us. We loved the history and the decor.

My husband and I celebrated our 33rd anniversary at the St. James Hotel where we spent our honeymoon! It was just as charming as it was in 1983. The staff was very welcoming and even allowed our little dog. The room was outfitted with antiques and a beautiful view of the Mississippi River. We had a delicious light meal from... More

Hi Cathy, Very cool you got a chance to head over to the Pepin area. So beautiful over there, and Villa Bellezza has such a wonderful vineyard and winery.

My wife and I needed a weekend get away so we went to red wing. The St. James was a great place for us to stay. Relaxing and has a later check out time. Close to everything. Bars and restaurants right in the hotel. Only complaint would be its a little pricey.

I can not say enough on how wonderful St James Hotel is. Everyone here has been helpful and friendly. I loved roaming around looking at all the historical items, browsing the little shops, and eating in the restaurants. The food is plentiful and tasty. The only complaint I would have is the serving size is way to much.

Had high hopes for a luxiourous stay to celebrate our 40th anniversary. Paid for the most expensive room ($279). Room was not large. Bed was well past its replacement date, with both of us rolling into the sink holes. Bedspread was snagged with many pieces of yarn sticking out. Tub-Shower was tiny, with the curtain touching both arms. No counter... More

The St. James Hotel is owned by Red Wing Shoes (I was told) and thusly has many international travelers coming through. It's a beautiful historic hotel that has some new rooms - I don't know if they replaced old rooms, or if they expanded. We had a "presidential suite" which had a small view of the river, and a small... More
