Fodor's Review

With 27 bullet holes in the tin dining-room ceiling, resident ghosts profiled on the TV show Unsolved Mysteries, and a guest book signed by Jesse James, the St. James Hotel epitomizes the Wild West. Every notable outlaw of the late 19th century is said to have visited the place. Chef to presidents Lincoln and Grant, Frenchman Henri Lambert opened the St. James first as a saloon in 1872 and then eight years later developed it into a hotel. The lobby is filled with Western Victoriana: overstuffed sofas; stuffed heads of bison, elk, deer, and bear on the walls; and fringe on the lamp shades.
