Certificate of Excellence
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 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.

The room, lobby, location, parking are all great. Unfortunately, we felt the continental breakfast was not up to the level of the rest of our stay in terms of the food offerings. Certainly not a deal breaker but for the $$ we spent we thought it could have been better. Still, we

If you are looking for a "non cookie cutter" hotel in downtown Decorah- this is it. Clean, quiet and nicely restored. Our room was spacious and the bed super comfy. Would stay here again when visiting the area.
