About Us

Discover a Hotel Like None Other

Premier location and unparalleled amenities. Stately architecture and rich heritage. While all these qualities make the Hotel Winneshiek unique in Decorah, our warm welcome and passionate embrace of the community give the Winn a quality of hospitality unique unto itself. Situated in the heart of Decorah, the Winn is part of a thriving main street full of local shops, restaurants, galleries, parks and unique attractions like the Vesterheim Museum. The hotel also offers the region’s best wedding and event venues, including the historic Opera House, with its original tin walls and ceiling, beautiful mezzanine level and dramatic stage.  

Delight in Your Stay

Blending 21st Century comfort with 19th Century charm, the Winn offers amenities ranging from free Wi-Fi and live music in the marble and terrazzo lobby, to Chef Tom Skold’s locally-sourced cuisine in Restauration restaurant, and handcrafted cocktails in our intimate lounge.

Rich History, Vital Present

From the day it opened in 1905, the Hotel Winneshiek set a standard for elegance that has yet to be exceeded. Then, as today, guests entered through tall mahogany doors set between limestone pillars, passing through a vestibule and arcade before entering the three-story octagonal rotunda canopied by a stained glass ceiling. More than a century later, the Winn gleams brighter than ever, honoring the past while exuding a vitality that will make every stay a treasured part of your own history.
