“Fantastic! Hotel Winneshiek is delightful. I have worked in 20 hotel establishments in several positions. This hotel is fantastic. Our meal and service exceeded our expectations. We dine at 4 and 5 star restaurants regularly. This was not expected for little Decorah. The music, food, service–all exceptional.”

I was ready for the best night of my life with Bryan, but no one had prepared me for having the best night of my life with my closest friends as well! Everything was perfect! Thanks again and best wishes.”
