Can't say enough good things about this lovely boutique hotel situated right on the fox river in downtown Geneva. Seriously, my wife and I have stayed here four or five times now for different occasions, and no matter what the reason, be it an anniversary, a wedding or just a night out on the town in Geneva, there is something...

The Harrington is located on the Fox River, and is easy to find and within easy walking distance to the shops and some restaurants in Geneva as well. Directly west of the hotel, across the river, is a beautiful little park to enjoy as well. I was here for a meeting and the facilities were very good; there were two... More

The problem with staying at the Herrington is that once you've stayed there it will become your new personal standard for hotels. You are likely to become very dissatisfied with any hotels that provide less than the Herrington definition of quality and customer service. Stay at your own risk! You're going to be spoiled! Fireplace, river view, whirlpool tub, luxury... More

When my spouse goes to Chicago on business I will go with him every time if he stays at the Herrington. It is one great boutique hotel and the best part is the chocolate chips cookies and fresh milk delivered to your room right before bedtime.

We stayed for one night on a business trip. A wonderful old building. Our room was great first floor towards the Fox River. Mild smell of mildew but hey it's on a River. Staff was polite. We will be back.

My husband and I attended a wedding at the Herrington last night. We are vegan and mentioned this to our server as the soups were coming out. She made sure that our salads had no cheese, and the chef made us fantastic vegan meals on short--immediate!--notice. We were floored. Impeccable service, delicious food, and an absolutely beautiful venue. It was... More
