Old riverboat landing that has been nicely updated without any loss of old school ambiance. the location is downtown close to a selection of restaurants. In addition there is a very good restaurant on site. In addition there is a breakfast place on site with a great view.

The St. James was a fun experience to have. The old time feel was great but I didn't like the old time "smell". The old wood smell that accompanies some antique furniture gets to me. That is the only negative thing I have to say. The bed was comfy and the room was cozy.

The St. James Hotel has many good things going for it: two restaurants, a bar, meeting rooms, bike rentals, retail shops, a convenient location in downtown Red Wing, and Victorian ambiance to name a few.  But almost all of these are available to the public. Room rates are high-priced for this area for what you get. We just paid almost $200...

The town of Red Wing is so lovely, especially during the holiday season. When we visited in December it was snowing and the town looked like it was from a postcard. We had dinner at the restaurant downstairs inside the St. James hotel and the food and service were fantastic and not over the top as far as price. Afterwards...

Single handedly the oldest hotel I have ever stayed at... and yet no modern necessities were missed, the staff is wonderful and clara the ghost was hospitable and did not seem to bother anyone in my party.

The hotel itself it stately. We stayed in a room, king size bed. We had plenty of room to move around. The bathroom was good size as well. Nothing fancy but it is a historic hotel so wouldn't expect fancy. The room was clean, the bed pretty comfortable. I would not recommend staying here on a Monday, though. The hotels...
