    A beautiful, reasonably priced venue with great staff!!

    The hotel staff, especially Abby Hanson, were super easy to work with and very responsive to our questions and needs. The meal we chose we delicious and beautifully prepared (I had multiple compliments from guests). The historic wing was had a romantic set up. The wait staff was incredibly kind, helpful, smooth, and on top of their game.

    The venue itself had very reasonable pricing (especially compared to the pricing in the twin cities) and included a suite stay with a jacuzzi and a couple other gifts for us.

    The hotel itself has multiple restaurants in it so it's good for celebrating the night before the wedding and the morning after.

    We would highly recommend the St. James Hotel to anyone looking for a cozy romantic spot!

    Cannot Speak Highly Enough

    If I could go back and choose our wedding venue 100 more times I would choose the St. James Hotel every single time! I could write volumes on how great the venue is and the staff are but I would do you a disservice if I said too much more than, just go see it and talk to them! You want to experience it for yourself. I'm sure that you will find the St. James to be absolutely fantastic. The hotel is kept up beautifully, the history is rich and the details magnificent. The diversity of spaces for your wedding cannot be matched, whether it is the gorgeous Historic Wing with library and fireplace, the intimate Laurentine, or the majestic Summit with spectacular river views, such big windows! Go see the Summit room! Go visit the St. James Hotel! I'm sure it will either become your venue or set the bar for your search and you will be so glad you went. A few details about our wedding: January 13th, 2019- Sunday Brunch Wedding. We used the Historic, Laurentine, and Summit and were delighted with all three spaces. The food was excellent. The staff was great. And the prices were fair, especially for a winter, Sunday, brunch wedding. I said I wouldn't say too much but it is easy to get carried away when speaking about the St. James Hotel.

    Thank you St. James Hotel!
