Pros: I had a great massage from a very nice therapist in the spa. The hotel had a "shabby chic" charm so to speak. It was very close walking distance to all the many restaurants, shops, and pubs, which is nice because I saw no other hotels around. Room was spacious, balcony was nice atmosphere was charming. Cons: Overpriced hotel....

This was our second trip to the Harrington. We did not stay at the hotel, but ate dinner and had drinks out on the terrace overlooking the river. It is a terrific setting. Very quaint and reminds me of French Normandy. A bit of an old world setting, and that adds to the charm. The wait staff were very attentive,...

My wife and I received a $300.00 Gift Certificate as a Christmas present, and we were finally fortunate enough to be able to find a day within our hectic schedules (travelling for work/3 kids) to book a reservation. However, when we called to book our room, we were told that unfortunately, while there were rooms available -- 2 weeks prior...

Dear Matthew, I sincerely apologize for the way in which your situation was handled. The issue is purely a case of poor communication on our part and I am very sorry that it escalated to this point. As demand is much higher than supply on Saturday nights we typically require a two night minimum stay. The purpose is to maximize...

We stayed at the Harrington because my family was attending a wedding there. Unfortunately we only got to stay one night there, I wish I had the chance to stay several. Our hotel room was amazing. We were on the second floor with a room that over looked the river and had a deck. The bathroom was to die for....

Love this hotel! Great service, cute rooms. Heard the ducks quacking along the Fox River one Saturday morning, it was funny. The house car is very convenient for going to dinner and not wanting to walk or drive. The bathrooms are great, love the granite. Everyone enjoys the milk & cookies delivered to your room during turn down service! The...

I should probably preface this by saying I am still on a high from my wedding day, which was held across the street from the Herrington at Riverside Receptions. But even for a less momentous occasion, I would have loved my stay. Everything about this hotel is charming, cozy, and relaxing. From the milk and cookies at bedtime, to the...

Our stay at the Herrington was perfect. The hotel is beautiful, the staff is fantastic, and the location is great. We loved being next to river, because we were able to take a jog in the morning. We also loved visiting historic downtown Geneva and had an amazing dinner at Bien Trucha. We highly recommend this hotel.

We stayed a few weekdays as part of a larger vacation to visit family. We are originally from the area and familiar with the location, property, and Geneva. The location can't be beat if you like to walk around to restaurants, parks, etc.. With two kids, this was a perfect place to be. Service throughout the property was also top-notch,...
