Just got home from a lovely overnight stay at the Herrington Inn & Spa. What a great experience. We were warmly welcomed by the front desk staff, check-in was effortless and we were quickly on our way to our room. We had a Premier King Riverview room. A large four poster king size bed, a gas fireplace in the room,... More

We just had our seventh and last stay. After reserving a room two plus months in advance they switched our room to what they said was an "upgrade". Right away I realized this was a room that others had refused to stay in. It was next to the elevator, our door was directly across from and maybe four steps away... More

Stayed this spring and arrived late at night after a stop in DC. I was really tired from travel and arrived after the restaurant had closed. I was so very, very pleased that the bartender was willing and able to make up a light snack/meal for me. I had a fantastic room looking out over the river. It was quiet... More

We loved our weekend getaway to the Herrington! Sadly, we only had one night to spend here for our 15th anniversary- but it did not disappoint. It was nice to have such a quality place close to Chicago to minimize travel time and enjoy time together. In June we stayed in a Junior River Suite. Loved the river view and... More

We spent 3 nights at the Herrington when in town for a wedding that was on property. The accommodations were very nice. Our room had a fireplace, a spacious bathroom, and we had views of the courtyard and river. Each night milk and cookies were delivered and it was such a nice touch. The staff could not have been more... More

My wife and I have been coming to the Herrington for about 10 years. We have always had a very relaxing and great experience. Last year we brought our employees as a gift to them and booked 9 rooms. This year we returned again bringing my employees and booked their rooms for 2 night and had our annual planning meeting... More

My daughter and I stayed for two nights while visiting family. Our room was huge, with a fireplace, comfy beds, and a lovely bathroom. It's within walking distance to the shops and restaurants in Geneva. We were in a courtyard room, but still had a great view of the Fox River. If you don't like a simple, continental breakfast, there... More

This hotel is so quaint and charming and romantic as can be! Great rooms, top notch! So comfy and cookies and milk at turn down. Fireplaces, four poster beds, deep bathtubs, balconies overlooking the beautiful courtyard or river. Easy to walk to shopping or restaurants. I love my yearly trip there.

We visited for one night for our anniversary. Quaint hotel with huge 4 poster bed and bathroom with separate shower and spa tub, in-room fireplace and balcony. Feels castle-like. Great setting along Fox River, within walking distance to restaurants and shopping. Geneva is a beautiful town. The only negatives would be the shower has a small lower pressure shower head... More
