I couldn't have made a better choice of hotel for the little vacation my daughter and I took. We'd never been to Red Wing but it looked like an interesting and easily driven destination. The St. James is beautiful, historic and quite a find for the price. Plusses: a clean and comfortable room, great pub and restaurants on the premises,...

Hi Judith, Happy to know you plan on visiting us again in the near future. Mother, daughter trips are the best! The RiverBlu Salon and DaySpa is brand new to the hotel this year and we just love them. We like to think we have everything under one roof and then some being on Main street and close to everything....

My husband and I stayed in a whirlpool suite at this historic hotel for his birthday. The room was impressive. The bed was comfortable. The room had a fireplace, which we didn't use, but I did turn it on to take a photo. The staff was friendly. The only negative is there wasn't a view, other than a brick building,...

Hi Sue, Thank you for leaving your kind comments. I recommend having a drink in the Port with Lori (the Bartender). She makes an excellent cocktail. Thanks for stopping in to see us and hope we will see you again in the future. Cheers, Jackie

Stayed on 3rd floor in the Cyclone room. It was a spacious room with river view. Queen bed , ample storage, desk & chair. Room was spotless. Turndown service in the evening was a nice touch. It is a fun hotel to explore! A couple bars & restaurants spread throughout the hotel. Enjoyed my stay tremendously.

Hello Travelor, Thank you for staying with us. More exploring to be had outside with summer nipping us on our tails, the local farmers market, walking trails, the bluff, boating, and kayak are all fun things to do around town. Come back and see us when you can :) Jackie

My wife and I were looking to get away for a weekend, and we really wanted a room with a jetted tub. We're from La Crosse, so we started looking around the area, and stumbled upon the St. James. We were very impressed by this historical gem in Red Wing. The room was tidy and beautiful, and all the of...

The St James has been a traditional getaway for my wife and I. The traditional feel and layout of the rooms, with the close proximity to good food (Jimmy's Pub) and great outdoors activity (Barn Bluff) makes for a great stay every time.

The hotel itself is beautiful, the location is enviable, and their restaurants and bar are superb! The Port Restaurant is ideal for a romantic celebration! Their food is consistently outstanding and the service is extraordinary. The Veranda Cafe is wonderful for breakfast and lunch, but it would be a faux pas to miss Jimmy's Pub on the 5th floor. They...

I really, really wanted to like this hotel....but I didn't. We came here on a whim for a romantic getaway and I was unfortunately just not impressed. The room: We had the American Eagle suite which was by far the best part of our stay. It was large with a fireplace. However, the furniture was so weird-a table and a...

This hotel is beautiful. It is historic, but the rooms are nicely updated. The beds are comfortable, and the view from our room was of the train depot and river--so gorgeous! You never have to leave the hotel if you don't want to. There are three restaurants and a cafe and shops at the ground level. However, if you do...

A true gem in the heart of Red Wing. Well-kept, historical hotel. Be sure to go visit Lori at the basement bar in the Port Restaurant--mixes the best cocktail in town with amazing service and an infectious personality!

I am sort of conflicted about the St. James Hotel. As a person who values quality sleep over all else, I feel like my lack of sleep during my stay at the St. James kind of skews my way of looking at the St. James. We first decided to stay at the St. James because of all of the hoopla...
