I'm not a big review guy, but, my wife and I stayed at the Herrington recently as a "little escape" weekend and this is a very cool place. It's like being in Ireland or England. Small lobby bar with a warm country feel. The room overlooked the courtyard and we could see the river. The room was very comfortable. There... More

If this was a $100 a night hotel it would be trmendous but for $250 and up a night there's an expectation that the little things will be done right. Unfortunately when the first impression is a bad one seems all the other little problems rise to the surface. This was our second stay at the Herrington. The first one... More

From the moment of checkin, the resourceful, and hospitable Front Desk Managers & Staff hit the mark. Shane, Stephanie and Deanie, to name a few will promptly and efficiently attend to all of your needs - however big or small. Laura - the Spa Manager, together with a highly skilled, friendly and 'perfectionist-driven' team, including Julie & Ellen and Cassidy,... More

We like to find fun areas to shop, eat, and explore, and finding a clean, comfortable, and very special hotel to stay nearby just makes it even more fun. Geneva is one of the best areas to explore in the midwest if you like unusual shops and great restaurants, and the Herrington has become one of our favorite hotels anywhere.... More

We stayed at the Herrington for a wedding I was standing up in recently. The hotel itself is really nice. The suite we staying was nice ..but not 280 dollars a night nice. We had a suite on the Fox River there but the bugs were brutal to the point we couldn't open the door to the balcony. We had... More

My husband and I come to The Herrington Inn & Spa at least once a year. It's so romantic and the staff is unbelievably nice! This time we were there to celebrate our 6th Wedding Anniversary. It was perfect and relaxing as always. I love that if your room wasn't used the night before, they will let you in early,... More

Wonderful accomodations in a quaint town with wonderful restaurants and shopping. The Director of Food and Beverage, Corey Hardersenmaitre'd when the , acted as a personal host, server, and maitre'd when the patio was packed due to a wedding. Not only were the drinks and food a value, but the ambience provided a very relaxed and enjoyable river side experience.

Living close to The Herrington Inn and Spa I have always admired it's beauty and dreamed that one day I would get married on the property. This July my dream came true!

We have stayed at the Herrington before and really enjoyed it. A quaint, warm environment that gives a real feeling that you're far away from the city. This visit we simply weren't as pleased as prior visits. We were in a Jr River suite. The room seemed to have a bit of musty odor. The furniture and bedding, although extremely... More

Thank you for your feedback. Our goal is to replace items such as bedding, furniture, etc. often enough that they never get to the point where they appear worn or outdated to our guests. We will definitely inspect the room in question and update as needed. Your comments are much appreciated and I hope you will return. Sincerely, Paul Ruby,... More

Hotel provided an alternate"romance package" with non-alcoholic champagne and a fruit/cheese platter, since my husband doesn't drink and I'm allergic to strawberries. Put extra large robes in the room since "one size" doesn't fit us. Their free breakfast buffet is excellent - fresh and generous. I wouldn't sell my soul for the turndown milk and chocolate chip cookies, but it's... More
