St. James Hotel, Est. 1875
Ranked #1 of 9 Hotels in Red Wing
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 29, 2013

I had a ball it felt as if we were back in time, the shops were outstanding the hotel was very nice and clean.I would stay there again. Staying in Red Wing was truly a wonderful experience,much better than I expected. The St.James had a lot of great qualities, it is simply beautiful I can't wait to visit again.The summer is probably even more beautiful,we were in Red Wing in March and it wasn't so bad, the food was also good, we loved the hotel restaurants, I would recommend staying there if you are in Red Wing the hotel is on the river a great view.

Stayed: March 2013

All the rooms are named after ships that have traveled the mississippi. We had the Lady D room. It took my breath away when we walked in. Flawlessly clean. The detail all over the hotel is amazing. They had an actor dressed in vintage clothing in the lobby-she was sweet to talk to- and stayed in character. The super nice gentleman at the front desk "Matt" was very knowledgeable and since we wanted to go for a walk and explore the town he suggested a restaurant that was perfect. A nice clean city surronding the hotel with lots of walking areas A lovely park on the river is right behind the hotel. The train station is right next door and we loved to hear the train whistle as they went by. The bar is a little too snooty and expensive for us. But the Veranda restaurant has lots of windows for great views you can sit inside or out on the terrace. GREAT COFFEE!!!!! We loved everything about this hotel -- they made us feel very special. Thanks Matt!!!!

Room Tip: We loved the "Lady D" room. It felt like a suite.

We've stayed at this hotel several times over the years and once again have enjoyed ourselves. Located on Red Wing's Main Street and just a block from
the river front, the hotel is in the heart of the town's historic district. Our corner deluxe queen room had 4 windows so was filled with as much light as early spring would allow. Unfortunately, the lovely light fixtures were not capable of producing much additionsl wattage for reading. The room was sparkling clean and well decorated, though it was beginning to show some signs of wear. The bathroom was tiny, with tiny fixtures to match. And the tile showed signs of repaired plumbing problems without replacement of matching tiles. None the less, we enjoyed our stay

It's a small town and not a lot of lodging choices so this is probably the best you are going to get. Certainly not a fabulous hotel. Had a bit of "The Shining" feel to it. Very unfortunate that they had karaoke night in the top floor bar one night. Very, very unfortunate that there were "singers" who clearly thought they could sing, over and over.

Room Tip: Try and get a room with a luggage rack so you don't have to put your suitcase on the floor

I have had the pleasure of staying at the St James a number of times.
It is a very Charming Hotel in the middle of downtown Redwing.
The rooms are generous and elegant in their appointment and the extra touches like robes and pillow selection give a very personal feel.
I recommend taking time to tour the halls and stairways to share some of the history of the Hotel and Redwing.
The staff have always been helpful and courteous.
The St James is a must stay if you plan to spend time in minnesota.

My husband and I stay here a few times a year and keep coming back for a few key reasons: we like the individual feel to the rooms and the special extra touches like robes and glass ice buckets that a boutique hotel would have, but the hotel is big enough to offer amenities like on site food & lounge. The rooms has original artwork and interesting wallpaper and furnishings rather than your corporate generic feel most hotels have. We like upscale food without feeling we need to wear uncomfortable dress clothes and sit in a formal dining room, so we like being able to order food in the pub on the top floor. The pub is also upscale with nice furniture and also has antique light fixtures and bar without looking old or dated. I appreciate a bartender that is seasoned and knows how to make classic drinks with more than 2 or 3 ingredients, which they do. I also like the on site shopping without ever having to put my coat on. The breakfast prices were extremely reasonable in the Veranda restaurant. I do wish they has a public Jacuzzi/Whirlpool area as I find that to be a real treat when traveling. It just seems like you are taking a bath if it is in your room.

Room Tip: Spend a little extra for a premium room, it will make the experience more enjoyable and is worth the...
