Overview

Excellence that withstands the test of time. It’s the St. James way.

The St. James Hotel opened on Thanksgiving Day, 1875, after a group of 11 civic-minded businessmen recognized the need for a first-class lodging establishment in Red Wing, which was the wheat-trading center of the world at that time. Architects from the Minnesota firm of E.P. Bassford outfitted the four-story Italianate structure in grand style with handsome furnishings, Brussels carpets in the lobby, and English velvet carpet in the second floor ladies’ parlor.

On opening night, guests marveled at the hotel’s modern features, including steam heat, hot and cold running water, gas on every floor, and a state-of-the-art kitchen. Overnight, the St. James became the hub of Red Wing. The first floor included three dining rooms, the kitchen, office, and baggage storage, while the lower level featured a parlor, billiard hall, barbershop, public baths, and four water closets. The second floor featured a ladies parlor, bridal suite, and two ladies’ water closets. An elegant ballroom occupied the fourth floor.

Located within walking distance from the Red Wing train depot and the steamboat docks, the hotel was booked to capacity every night with travelers and boarders. The St. James chefs developed such a renowned reputation that the railroad adjusted its timetables to allow passengers to disembark and enjoy dinners here. Luminaries such as President Rutherford B. Hayes were among the more famous guests.

Now owned by the Red Wing Shoe Company, the St. James continues to offer guests the same blend of Old World service, luxurious amenities, and culinary delights that it provided opening day almost 150 years ago.
