We stayed at Hotel Winneshiek and had an elegant room with a large well appointed bathroom. This is a restored hotel from times gone by and one is able to imagine what it must have been like in its heyday. There is a good restaurant with great food and somewhat laid back service. Be sure to sit at the bar...

We were blown away with this lovely restored gem of the past. The turn of the century old world charm and attention to detail throughout the hotel were impressive. We were looking for a mini vacation and this was perfect. We had a yummy steak dinner at the Restauration restaurant inside the hotel and a lovely breakfast the next morning....

After a few stays this is always a relaxing visit with small cocktail lounge, great restaurant and large bedrooms and baths. Courteous clerks at checkin/checkout, spacious parking and a lot of shops in vicinity.
