Ventura, Iowa
Reviewed 5 days ago NEW

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.

We have stayed there twice & loved it both times! Very well appointed, clean & quiet and the beds & pillows are extremely comfortable. Very cool restored older building close to great shopping & dining. Nice bar area. The restaurant isn't our favorite, but there are some great ones really close.

Lovely hotel, enjoyed the restaurant, clean quiet, great pillows and bedding. My one suggestion would be a better night light in the bathrooms, other than that no complaints. Hope to stay again next time we are in Decorah

The Hotel does not have a pool nor a complimentary breakfast. But, our stay was great. Clean, quiet, well appointed and the ambience of a turn of the century materials: polished wood, grand staircases plus convenient elevators made for an overnight stay super. We will stay again if the chance comes.

For a fun evening we will occasionally travel to Decorah for the night to enjoy their downtown bars and restaurants, with a stop on the way in to town at the Topling Goliath Brew Pub.
