Reviewed 12 April 2016

I loved the historic feel of the St. James. My room was clean and comfortable with a lovely view of the Mississippi River. I was surprised to find three different restaurants/bars in the hotel. I loved Jimmy's the best -- paneled, club-like atmosphere with a soft jazz track playing. Try their beef tips with blue cheese! Unfortunately a woman with...

We enjoyed a one night stay at the St. James. The room was larger than we thought it would be given it is a hotel over 100 years old. All the normal amenities and safety features are there. Good water pressure too in such an old beautiful building. Lots of charm and history. Right near the Mississippi River. One of...

My husband and I drove to Red Wing for a night just for a little getaway and stayed at the St James hotel for the first time. The hotel is so gorgeous!

The staff was excellent, took pictures of the 10 of us, made sure we all had a good time and had everything we needed. We had booked four rooms and all four were clean, and met expectations. We utilized Jimmy's Pub and that bartender again was gracious and took pictures for our group.

Reviewed 27 March 2016 via mobile

The hotel itself is beautiful. We stayed one night and probably wouldn't stay again. Plumbing is very loud. Hard to regulate the heat and very thin walls. The room was nice. Nothing special. The staff was not very friendly at all. The only person that stood out was the young girl in the coffee shop Easter morning. The front desk...

It's been many years since we've stayed at the St. James and I don't have a good excuse for that. The rooms are spacious, there's impeccable attention to detail, everyone is friendly and professional and it's just utterly charming.

Staff was friendly, courteous and helpful. Our room was beautifully decorated with period style furniture, fixtures and wall paper. Beds were comfortable, though sheets were polyester microfiber: I much prefer 100% cotton. We stayed in a room in the original part of the hotel. The hotel has been added onto since the original hotel was built. Half the rooms are...

We always enjoy our stay at the St James. The hotel has a grand charm and character. The staff are attentive to our needs. Little things like an afternoon room refresh--it was so nice after a morning and afternoon on the town to return to the room with classical music on the radio and two chocolates on the bed. A...

Waukesha, Wisconsin

This hotel dates back to the 1800's but has been well maintained and wonderfully updated. Rooms are spacious. Some have views of the Mississippi. The library and other public areas are very inviting. There are shops in the hotel plus 3 restaurants. In the summer there is outdoor dining overlooking the River. The staff is wonderful.
