I was in town to meet friends at a local establishment about 5 blocks away. This was the only room within easy walking distance which is why I booked the room even though I was hoping for something less expensive. When I arrived I was delighted with what I saw and experienced. The building was beautiful and luxurious. The Inn...

We're glad you enjoyed your visit to Hudson! Most of our guests do walk to the many downtown shops and restaurants - and enjoy late night music as you did! We hope to see you again.

The suite was, in fact, four stars--a little worn out along the nice jacuzzi, some outlets didn't work, but overall comfy. Many things need updating in the b and b--rugs especially. Mary Ellen is a good hostess, but the breakfast was all sugar (plus two sausages, which we don't eat)--a great fruit starter, but followed by sickly sweet (though tasty...

Breakfast at the Phipps Inn is cook’s choice and every other day we alternate sweet and savory entrees. We do our best to accommodate special diets and requests when we are told in advance. Like many B&Bs that have no or minimal help, we have a only a small amount of time for our many tasks and personal appointments between...

No detail is overlooked in this opulent 1884 mini palace. It is beautifully maintained with ornate decorations and classy public rooms. The guest rooms are comfortable and elegant. It is close to town and the St. Croix River, a tributary of the Mississippi.

Thank you for the review! We try to make breakfast special for everyone and vary our menu so if you stayed a week you'd never have the same entree. We hope that when you came back again you'll enjoy the Phipps inn even more!

My husband and I have grown children living in the Twin Cities area, but sometimes stay in a hotel anyway, such as when they have their other in-laws visiting at the same time. When we do, we like staying in Hudson (a quick drive) for the small-town charm, but had found only boring chains--until this trip. The Phipps Inn is...

Thank you for the review! As these guests noted, the Phipps Inn is convenient to downtown Hudson and the many shops and nearly a dozen one of a kind restaurants. It’s a pleasant walk in any weather but especially this time of year.

The Phipps Inn is an absolutely beautiful 1884 mansion with beautiful woodwork, fireplaces, stained-glass windows, and period furnishings. Our bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was up to date and well equipped with anything a guest could possibly need. The breakfasts were also delicious and offered gluten-free options which we appreciated. Also, the location is great, easy walking distance...

We‘re sorry that this couple’s stay did not completely meet their expectations. Guests receive a welcome e mail 48 hours prior to arrival. It reiterates check in time and asks that arrangements be made in advance for early check in. This is to allow us enough time to ensure that rooms are guest ready. When guests arrive early without advance...

I am so happy we came across the Phipps Inn when planning our adult mini-spring break getaway. The Inn is gorgeous and within walking distance to the Hudson downtown and waterfront.
