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,...

We stayed with a large group at the Herrington for a wedding. Everyone was very helpful and kind. The setting is gorgeous and food was first rate. Rooms are spacious and well appointed, as are the bathrooms. The fireplace was a nice touch. Beds were like sleeping on a cloud. The free shuttle to the main street in Geneva was...

We organized a surprise party for my Mom, where her two Granddaughters and eight family members from out of town met at the Herrington unbeknown to my Mom. We let the staff in on the surprise, and they played their part perfectly. As the weekend went on we got to know much of the staff on a first name basis,...

I am lucky enough to get to come to this lovely inn at least once a year for a business conference with Independent Retail colleagues. The beds are plush and comfortable, the staff is extremely polite and helpful, and the food and bar choices are delicious! There are in room and spa facility pampering activities to choose from.

We live about 15 minutes away and have dined at Atwaters, but this was our first overnight stay in the hotel, celebrating our anniversary. The staff is fantastic - friendly, helpful, and attentive. We were in a 3rd floor room overlooking the courtyard. I believe every room has a balcony and fireplace. The room was spacious and the bed was...

The Herrington Inn was a perfect getaway. It was the 4th of July and the noise and smoke of the fireworks were too much to handle. We decided we could not stay at home; we got in the car that evening and headed for Geneva, IL. We had never been there before so didn't know what to expect. Pulled into...

Coming for two day across the big pond is no fun. But the Herrington Inn &Spa made up for it. I arrived on a humid and warm Tuesday evening, got a nice room with a four-poster-bed, all prepared, a jacuzzi in the bathroom . After a conversation with the well-spoken barkeeper over types of Gin ( i wanted to know...

This is our second trip here. The rooms are lovely. Love the warmed bathroom floor. Great deep tub and nice shower. Bed is very comfy if not a bit tall. Our riverview room was nice. The best part is the milk and cookies at bedtime...if your husband doesn't get to them first!
