“The Welcome is Real.”


The Hotel Winneshiek is a historic boutique hotel nestled in the heart of downtown Decorah. Blending 21st Century comfort with 19th Century charm, guests can enjoy free Wi-Fi in the marble and terrazzo lobby, as well as local live music amidst the original cherry millwork.

With on-site dining choices, The Hotel Winneshiek is the only full-service hotel in the surrounding area. After checking in to one of our 34 guest rooms and suites, guests are invited to step across the lobby to Restauration or the Tap Room and enjoy a handcrafted drink or some of Chef Tom’s locally-sourced, fresh from scratch food.

Truly located in the heart of Decorah, the Hotel Winneshiek is part of a thriving main street full of local shops, restaurants, galleries, parks, and the Vesterheim Museum, all located within walking distance.
