The St. James Hotel′s 68 charming guestrooms feature period Victorian decor and modern amenities expected by today’s travelers. No two rooms are alike, and each is named after 19th-century riverboats that plied the waters of the Mississippi River.

Architectural styles differ from the Historic section to the Riverside. The Historic section is of the Italianate style, popular in the U.S. in the early to mid-19th century. Tall, narrow windows, a low-pitch hipped roof and overhanging eaves supported by decorative brackets characterize this style. The rooms tend to be square or rectangular in shape and boast higher ceilings. The hallways of the Historic section are almost twice as wide as a modern hallway as they were built to accommodate the hoop skirts of the era, especially since “well-bred” women did not go anywhere without taking the arm of an escort or another female companion.

En route to the guestrooms in the Historic section, guests will find bits of history on the walls with art and antiques from the past century. Old doorways remain as “Historical Vignettes," where pictures and stories from Red Wing’s past hang in abundance. A picture of each guestroom’s namesake is placed in each space. On the wall of the third-floor landing of the grand staircase hangs a quilt commemorating those who lost their lives in the tragic Lake Pepin Sea Wing disaster.

The 1977 addition of the Riverside section is modern in its construction with bay windows facing the Mississippi River. The curved structure allows some of the rooms to be charming and odd-shaped. The ceilings are of standard height and hallways are long and narrow like those in most modern hotels. Guests in modern fashion have little trouble navigating them. The Riverside section features some 19th-century art and antiques, though not as prevalent as in the Historic section.
