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...

First stay was over the Christmas holidays and the staff were warm and welcoming. The atmosphere was inviting and elegant and this is true of the room but also the lobby area. The breakfast included in the price was very good - hard boiled eggs, plenty of pastry and fruits and cheeses and delectable thin sliced European meats. I am...

I chose the Herrington because of it's proximity to the Fox River Bike trails. It is on the river and you can safely access the trail in 5 minutes or less. They gave me no trouble about keeping my bike in my room. The property was very nice. Clean and well kept. The room was pleasant and warm. It even...

We had a 2 night stay for a wedding on New years eve. While the venue is beautiful, I have never had such an awful shower in a supposed luxury hotel. The water temperature vacillated between scalding and freezing - taking a shower was either dangerous or very uncomfortable. The front desk didn't seem very concerned, just would have maintenance...

We spend one night for my husband's 70th birthday. The room was very lovely, exceptionally clean. Very quiet - never heard any noise but it was a Wednesday - in late November. The jacquzzi was the best. Plenty of hot water. The bed was so comfortable and the pillows were feather. We would definitely go back and highly recommend it....

We make an annual visit to the Herrington each Christmas season. The staff is very helpful and the Inn is a charming place to stay. The rooms have a great view of the river. Our rooms have always had a fireplace and we enjoy the milk and cookies for dessert. A very romantic place to stay!
