Excellent experience - we highly recommend Hotel Winneshiek, have stayed here several times over the past years and will most likely be back. We love this part of the state and like to come every fall to see the change of season.

The Hotel Winneshiek is located in the heart of Decorah. It is in walking distance of many great restaurants and shops. It is just a few minutes drive from Luther College. Whenever I go to Deborah I always try to stay there.

This historic building has been lovingly restored, and Decorah is a nice town with interesting shops. The rooms are clean, comfortable and quiet. Our dinner was delicious and the server was attentive, knowledgeable and friendly. The continental breakfast is adequate but nothing to eagerly anticipate.

About
Description
Premier location and unparalleled amenities. Stately architecture and rich heritage. While all these qualities make the Hotel Winneshiek unique in Decorah, our warm welcome and passionate embrace of the More community give the Winn a quality of hospitality unique unto itself. Situated in the heart of Decorah, the Winn is part of a thriving main street full of local shops, restaurants, galleries, parks and unique attractions like the Vesterheim Museum. The hotel also offers the region’s best wedding and event venues, including the historic Opera House, with its original tin walls and ceiling, beautiful mezzanine level and dramatic stage. From the day it opened in 1905, the Hotel Winneshiek set a standard for elegance that has yet to be exceeded. More than a century later, the Winn gleams brighter than ever, honoring the past while exuding a vitality that will make every stay a treasured part of your own history. Less
