Get into the "spirit" of the Old West at the Express St. James Hotel. Relax in a room where frontier legends stayed but beware, some of our "guests" have never checked out. For those seeking less excitement stay in the modern annex side. Guests can choose from a variety of entrees in the restaurant complimented by a drink in the Bar.

We stopped for lunch and were quickly entranced by the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff ( particularly Sarah Michael- she was amazing!), the quality of the food and the history and ambiance of the hotel. We had fish tacos and a bison burger, would recommend both!
