My husband and I stayed here on the night of our wedding since we got married across the street; we were fortunate to get a reduced rate for a King room that faced the river and had a nice balcony. We had a huge room with a fireplace and beautiful bathroom. We even had heated floors in the bathroom! The...

My spouse and I stayed at The Herrington Inn in late March (3-24 to 3-26) for a two night getaway. I didn't realize this Inn existed or was so close to Aurora until I booked it through another party that offered a good deal. I was impressed with this place. It was really cozy - felt like home away from...

I am writing this review as a bride. Stayed here for our wedding weekend after getting married at Riverside Receptions across the street. This hotel is absolutely stunning... extremely clean, beautiful interior and ample mirror space to get ready with your bridesmaids. The suite has a huge whirlpool that my husband and I enjoyed on our wedding night. The staff...

Got a great deal through Groupon! Check-in was a breeze, front desk personnel were very professional and everyone were very welcoming! Our room was very spacious with a fireplace, sitting area, and a very large bathroom with jacuzzi! Turn down service with milk & cookies was waiting for us on the mini bar and the room temperature was set to...

Already looking to go back! Check in was done with ease, room was beautiful. View from the balcony was into the courtyard but we still had a view of the river. Fireplace, bathbrobes, cookies and ice cold milk, whirlpool tub. What's not to love!!!!

The Herrington Inn is on my "Go To Bucket list" forever. Can't wait to visit again. An old factory (sorry can't remember what it was back in the day) that was ripe for destruction but saved. I think it was brought back to life about 25 yrs. ago. Those who purchased the building have created a most lovely Inn with...

We are happy to be on your "list". The Herrington was originally a creamery, hence the milk and cookies at turndown and the cow from Chicago's "cows on parade" in the lobby. We look forward to your return. Sincerely, Paul Ruby, GM

Purchased a two night stay off Groupon. The Inn surpassed our expectations on every level. Little over an hour from downtown Chicago via Metra commuter. Inn has convenient, complimentary shuttle service that'll pick you up as well as drive you to and from points of interest in the area. Our room had a balcony that overlooked the Fox River. Spacious...

We watched fishermen wade across the Fox River from our balcony as we sipped wine and snacked on room service; dinner at Atwater is highly recommended-extensive wine cellar, superb Caesar's salad and pheasant entree; the large bathroom with whirlpool tub and separate shower complemented the giant 4poster bed as we finished our wine in front of the fireplace

Found this place on Groupon and what a find. Overall the place is beautiful. Friendly staff everywhere. Our room, the Junior River Suite, was absolutely beautiful. Loved the layout, bed (very comfortable), bathroom. Turn down service and the cookies and milk was a nice touch too. If there was a knock it would be the water temperature fluctuating in the...
