We stayed at the St. James as part of a family wedding. We arrived a bit early and the hotel graciously accommodated our early arrival so we could relax after our flight. Our room, in the older part of the hotel, was beautiful and well kept. I typically prefer B&Bs for their character, charm and individuality, so I appreciated that... More

My wife and I needed a weekend get away so we went to red wing. The St. James was a great place for us to stay. Relaxing and has a later check out time. Close to everything. Bars and restaurants right in the hotel. Only complaint would be its a little pricey.

I can not say enough on how wonderful St James Hotel is. Everyone here has been helpful and friendly. I loved roaming around looking at all the historical items, browsing the little shops, and eating in the restaurants. The food is plentiful and tasty. The only complaint I would have is the serving size is way to much.
