The Herrington is our go-to hotel for a quick getaway from the city. From Chicago, we can take the train to Geneva (roughly an hour). No need for a car-The Herrington will pick you up and drop you off at the train station (arrange that in advance). Everything Geneva has to offer is within walking distance, but the inn can... More

My sister and I stayed here for a few days on a recent trip to Geneva/St. Charles and had a wonderful and relaxing time. The room was very pretty and the view of the river was beautiful. The staff was very friendly and accomodating and really go out of their way to make your stay inviting. This is a luxury... More

We had stayed at Herrington previously and loved it, but it was different this time. There was a snowstorm the day prior to our arrival. Since we were using a "big favor" from my sister having her keep our kids over night, we wanted to be sure we'd be able to experience everything the area had to offer. I called... More

Also, I would be happy to personally ensure that your balcony is free from snow, and that we are more prepared in the inclement weather. Thank you for sharing your comments, as it gives... More

The cityscape may have been different but the charm and amenities at the Herrington remind me of a European Country Inn. Once a creamery along the banks of the Fox River, the unique stone and plank construction, slate floors and stucco walls create an evocative feel of the past but make no mistake about it the accommodations and amenities rival...

My wife and I went here for a weekend getaway and had a fantastic time. The service was great from the moment we walked in. They greeted us at the door, had us checked-in in minutes, and carried out luggage to the room. The room was very large with great amenities. It was very comfortable and relaxing. We enjoyed the...

Let me start off by saying that the only reason I didn't give this beautiful place an excellent is because we had actually planned on having our weekend getaway here 2 weeks ago, but they got their wires crossed and messed up our reservation--by the time we had figured it out, they could not accommodate us which was kind of...

I love the Herrington! It is so centrally located that you can walk to a variety of bars and restaurants. The room is beautiful, spacious, and smells good, which is something I am sensitive about. The bathrooms are dark, but it didn't seem a huge problem with the make-up mirror. I would suggest bringing your own hair dryer if you... More

This visit was a surprise birthday gift from my husband, They upgraded our room and it was beautiful. The grounds are lovely. The staff tries very hard to make it an excellent experience for you. My only two complaints were -- the darkness of the rooms and the sheets on the bed, particularly the bottom sheet. It was covered in... More

Our stay at this small Inn on the Fox River was very pleasant. The young man at the desk was courteous, but not extremely pleasant upon check in. He forgot to tell us about the free continental breakfast that they offer. This is not advertised on line, and a few other things went without him informing us. Since nothing ruined... More

The first night spent here was my wedding night, as a gift from my new in laws. What a wonderful place to be! We've been back since for our anniversary and have not been disappointed. Fireplaces in every room, decently comfy beds and great service. Complimentary breakfast tops off and of course, lots of coffee! Spacious bathrooms and four poster... More
