I booked a room Jan., 2021 for a Sept. 18th wedding in Red Wing, MN only to receive an email from the St. James Hotel one week before the wedding (our granddaughter's) that the room was cancelled. The manager was not available for 3 days so left a message & when she called Tues., 14 , she said it was a "technical glitch." Oh, so it is fixed, "No...it was a wedding and we have to take care of our customers." Me: "So I'm not a customer?" Yes, but it was a computer glitch. Me "I heard you overbooked & had to cancel the most recent 6 confirmations?" "Yes, Me "But I booked in January, "But it was a technical glitch." On Sept. 17 while I was away from my computer for the Rehearsal dinner, I returned @ 10 PM to see the manager had said a room was now available & would be held for 1 hour, till 6:30 PM. With assistance from others I did find a different room. Seriously, "No way to run a business.

We booked 2 nite stay at St James on 1/25/2021 for a wedding 9/18/2021 using their website. My 80 year old sister in California called the hotel on 1/27/2021 to make reservation in person. She received two emails confirming a late arrival but that the hotel did not provide confirmation numbers. Five days before the wedding she received a cancellation of her reservation by email with no explanation. When she called the hotel she was first told there was no reservation, she then asked why she was sent a cancellation of her reservation and was told it was an over-booking glitch. A "manager" contacted her 3 days later and explained that because the wedding we were attending was not at the St James hotel they had to look after their in-house wedding guests first so her reservation without confirmation number was one of the first to be booted. We all tried to find other rooms but because of the late date had no recourse but to keep our rooms and the kind staff at the Round Barn (where the wedding was held) provided a private room in their home to my sister and her husband who were grandparents of the bride. My sister's experience and disrespectful, treatment from the staff at the St James put a dark cloud over our stay as we felt trapped. We wouldn't go back and I'd never recommend a stay there for an important event.

We were five friends on a get away trip! Every staff member at the hotel was very friendly and accommodated our every request! We have talked about visiting Red Wing and staying at the St. James Hotel every season! I hope we can make that happen! At any rate, we DO plan a return trip! We were very impressed with the bedding and mattresses!

This hotel is charming and historic, but I found the St. James didn’t offer the level of service I expected. The hotel is historic so it’s quite old and they aren’t keeping up with the restoration and modern infrastructure it needs. Case in point, the water pressure in the toilet was so weak that maintenance had to be called upon first use. After that this toilet would struggle to get down 5 squares of toilet paper. The mattress was old and uncomfortable. A good hotel really needs to invest in good beds. Then there wee little service issues, like getting 1 bath towel. Yes, only one. Another call to front desk. Check-in was a slow process too. I filled out their email survey after my stay to express my disappointment with our stay. I wasn’t surprised when they never followed up.

The St James Hotel is a wonderful experience to stay at. The chefs special steak dinner was the best I have had in years!! My wife enjoys getting her hair done at the River Blu salon while I enjoy a few alcoholic beverages at the outdoor bar.
