Nice victorian room with all the updates. We got the Romantic package, including champagne, dinner and voucher for Jimmy's bar on the fifth floor. Food was great. The room was very nice...except our neighbors did not abide by the no smoking policy. The staff was eager to please and moved us to another room. Will definitely be back.

Room Tip: The rooms facing the river have train tracks running parallel to the river so you may have a few tra...

We spent a beautiful spring weekend in Red Wing and stayed at the historic St James hotel. It is showing some small signs of normal wear and tear, but is still a,lovely place. The staff was all very nice and helpful, the room was spacious and clean with a comfortable bed. We even got a nice turn-down each evening. We would recommend to anyone for a special stay while in the Red Wing area.

My husband and I stayed here yesterday and overall we enjoyed the visit (we had the Victorian package, which included dinner, breakfast and a drink at Jimmy's Pub). We ate supper in the Port and thought the food was very good and enjoyed a drink at Jimmy's pub. Our room was on the smaller side, but nice and did have a big bathroom. I would suggest they find a way to have a counter or table by the bathroom sink though to set bathroom supplies on. No worries though - there was a small table in the room that I moved by the sink. Our only complaint about the visit was the bed - it was awful! The bed made squeeking sounds every single time you moved (the bed frame was loose). Needless to say, I was awake most of the night as a result and am sooo tired today! I thought the mattress was fine, but my husband thought it was too soft. There were two weddings at the hotel while we were there, but it was not disruptive to our visit at all, which I thought was great given it is a smaller hotel. We would consider staying here again for the historic charm - but would need to be assured of a better bed!

Bed in the room felt like you were sleeping in a hole. You continually kept rolling into the center. I would not stay here again. I completed their survey before I left and their online survey and have not heard anything from the hotel about my experience.

The St. James was a wonderful place to stay while biking the trail from Red Wing to Cannon Falls. My room was beautiful and the whirlpool tub was wonderful after a long day on the bikes.

Breakfast in the restaurant was terrific and the sturdiwheat pancakes are not to be missed.

Red Wing is charming and the St James is situated at the heart of things.

The main downfall of this place is the train track running behind it. Not only are there trains going by a half block away....they are going by all the time including the middle of the night! It would not have been a big deal if a train went by a couple times, but yikes....probably one an hour at times. For the price of nearly $200 a night that is just nuts. The room was fine but even without the train not worth the price. There is certainly updating that could be done. The place seemed near vacant when we were there on a weekend. Not sure what that says.

We reserved at the St James for Valentines weekend. The hotel is well kept and a nice getaway along the river. Beautiful and historic rooms and easy access to downtown. Try the breakfast at the Veranda and drinks at Jimmy's. Some packages include coupons to the hotel's restaurants. We took the train for our stay - and the train was two hours late both ways, so book carefully for the train package. Also, the hotel did not come to meet us at the station like they advertised, and car rental through the hotel was a hassel. Otherwise, we had a great stay and recommend the St. James for couples.

Room Tip: Look for packages online
