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...

Went to Harrington for husband's birthday. As it was a Sunday, we couldn't get into the spa but we ordered a bath basket which contained amazing products. Bathtub wasn't quite big enough for two but it was workable. Had dinner at Atwater's where they had a birthday card for my husband on our table. Food as always is stellar. Room...

I wish I could give 4.5 stars because the experience was almost perfect! The location is close enough to home to be convenient but far enough away to feel you are getting away. The hotel is right on the river and after a great greeting and check in experience we found our room to be fantastic. We got a Premier...

While this is not a common issue I can completely understand how this could compromise your overall impression of the hotel. I am glad that you plan on returning. We will do everything we can...

Other reviews have already extolled the many virtues of this property: fireplaces, balconies with courtyard and river views, luxury bathrooms, large wall-mounted HD tv, etc. so here are a few helps. As a boutique hotel, there is some variety in the room types, sizes or features. Although many reservation sites will book your stay at this property, TA and the...

2 night get-away was lovely. River view was awesome, hotel staff very accommodating, and the little town is walk-able with some great little restaurants. Casino is close-by for some entertainment and IL casinos are smoke free!! YES!

My husband and I took a winter get-a-way to Geneva and stayed at the Harrington Inn and Spa. We booked a full day of spa treatments and requested early check in so we could be in our room before the relaxation began. They were very accommodating! The building is historically beautiful! That being said it is not very accessible for...
