My sister and I decided to take a "sisters' trip" to Galena, just the two of us. We were only looking for a place to sleep, shower, and have breakfast (to save some money). Neither of us had ever stayed in a B&B.We didn't want the standard hotel room, we wanted something unique to Galena. the Renaissance fit the bill... More

We stayed 2 nights and were very impressed with the location and the homemade pastries --all included with the free breakfast! The grounds are pleasing; plenty of nice outdoor seating among the interesting landscape. We will be back!

My husband and I decided last minute to do a weekend in Galena. We thought we had got lucky when we called and there was a cancellation for the Grand Era Suite. I did read reviews prior to booking and was concerned about the noise on Rte 20 as written about. When I called, I spoke with a lady named... More

I stayed at the Renaissance on a Friday night. We parked our car (for free!!)across the street and never used it again since the hotel is within walking distance of Main Street. The accommodations were neat, clean and very vintage. The property is beautiful!! The moment I walked through the gate I was charmed by the beautiful brick walkway and... More

This was one of the few B&Bs within walking distance of Main Street that was not completely booked the week before Memorial Day weekend. My family stayed in the Grey Eagle, War Eagle, and the Superior Napa Valley. Let me first say, the entire property is MUCH more charming and lovely in person than the photos on their website really... More

I just spent last weekend in Galena, IL. The entire weekend was amazing. Renaissance and Riverboat Suites is a great place to stay. It's not on Main Street, but a very short walk. We stayed in a standard room, as we didn't plan on spending too much time indoors. We were in Room 1 and the only negative to this... More

Our favorite room is the Grey Eagle. The room is nicely decorated. It has a cute patio with great access to the hot tub. The hot tub is SUPER.... More

I couldn't believe that my husband and I stumbled onto this place by accident in August of 2013. We were looking for a place to spend the night in Galena, so we were primarily concerned with a low rate, and since we got this room for less than $100 and it's so centrally located to everything we wanted to do,...
