The owners converted an old creamery into the wonderful retreat. As you enter you see a grand staircase to the second floor. Behind the stairs is their bar and restaurant. This is also the area they serve their continental breakfast. The doors near this area go out to their courtyard which overlooks the river and has a private dining room... More

This was our first visit and the inn exceeded my expectations. The extremely high level of customer service, friendliness, and professionalism from the staff was apparent the moment we entered the lobby and continued throughout our stay. We arrived before check in and spent some time in their bar, which has a great atmosphere. We chatted with several employees and... More

The hotel is situated on a beautiful stretch of river with nice verandas overlooking the water. The rooms are very well furnished. However the lighting is so poor that it's difficult to appreciate the furnishings. The bathroom, in particular, was beautifully furnished with a nice shower and a big tub but it was so dimly lit by high, weak bulbs... More

I was told about this hotel from a friend that had stumbled upon it. My husband and I decided to add it to a weekend itinerary and struck gold. Walking in the door stopped us in our tracks, it was not a large area and included the lobby, check in, a bar area and comfy looking seating along with a... More

My family and I recently celebrated a birthday at Atwater's. We couldn't get reservations at 7 as requested...had to accept a 7:45 reservation. The restaurant was not filled to capacity, probably half the tables were occupied. I assume the inability to take a party of 6 at 7 had to do with a lack of wait staff. After being seated... More

Dear Guest, Although I am glad you enjoyed the food at Atwater's I am very sorry you had a poor service experience. It seems like you got off to a bad start when we were unable to make a reservation at your desired time. Unfortunately with only 10 total tables in the dining room our flexibility can sometimes be limited... More

Went with another couple for a little R&R. Hotel was excellent and staff was great. We took advantage of the Spa for wonderful massages. Had dinner at a delicious spanish restaurant (Bientrucha) a short walk down the street and then hung out at a local bar (Evenflow) with a great band. Close to Chicago area and a wonderful place to...

Our room was perfect: stunning view (with an exquisite egret in the water), luxurious bathroom with heated floors, wonderful bed. The service was friendly, prompt, and genuine. The milk and cookies at turndown time was a delicious touch.

This place can't be beat for a romantic weekend getaway. We have stayed here about three times and have stayed in a few different rooms and ALL were beautiful, cozy and romantic. Atwaters is also a great place to have a excellent gourmet style dinner. Bring a bottle of champagne, take a bubble bath in the huge whirlpool style tubs... More

Gave it a shot on a local recommendation and went in with low expectations. I was shocked at how great my experience was. In fact, I booked another trip that day! Staff was friendly, rooms great, the milk and cookies during turndown a nice touch, and the dinner was top notch. If worried about a boutique/non branded spot don't be...book... More

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
