We stayed at the St. James Hotel for a romantic getaway. It was fabulous. We did the self-guided tour and enjoyed learning more about its history and all the unique items. We also enjoyed all three restaurants: The Port for dinner, Jimmy's for drinks and live music, and then the Veranda for breakfast. We loved all three, but I think the Veranda is my favorite, with its beautiful view of the Mississippi and outdoor seating. This hotel is so quaint and cozy - you cannot help but relax and enjoy yourself. As for the rooms, we found the beds with the handmade quilts to be very comfortable and we both slept like a rock. The rooms are nice size, and in the room we had, the "Minnesota", the bathroom was huge! It also had a large jetted tub. There were also nice robes to use. We had a great view of the bluffs from our room and also of the river. Wifi is free and easy to use, there's a flat screen TV and iPhone charger for you as well. Parking is attached and it's free too. Be sure to save some time for your tour and also to shop at the shops in the St. James. All of the stores are worth a visit, ranging from high end women's clothing to beautiful home decor, and even a spa where you can get a massage. By the way, you can also stop down at Clara's early to get a good cup of coffee if you are an early riser like me. One other tip, be sure to go up to the 5th floor as there is an expansive view of the river from there! There are some great shops downtown Red Wing too, so walk around and shop! Also, take a stroll at the Levee Park right along the river (which is right by the St. James Hotel).
