Loved the décor in our room as well as the other rooms that members of our group had reserved at Renaissance. Staff was extremely accommodating while arranging our reservations for a group of 15 ladies and upon learning that our group was a bride-to-be's get away, had a towel wedding cake gift for her.

We love staying here. Just a short pleasant walk to main street, friendly staff, casual atmosphere, excellent homemade breakfast treats. Great place for a group trip - fun to hang out on the large deck.

Great place to stay very friendly and fabulous cinnamon rolls! Love the convenience of the kitchen and private bathrooms! Victoria was amazing and the rooms were clean and as comfortable as being at home.

Very nice large suite with many amenities and wonderful details. Just a block from downtown with no steps. A beautiful courtyard and even a hot tub tucked in what seemed like an old root cellar. The town of Galena was just incredibly charming with so much history a real midwest gem. We will be back.

Our room was very cozy and comfortable. The fire place was lit when we arrived which was wonderful. The bed very nice, bathroom amenities were great. Breakfast in the morning was plentiful and delicious. I would definitely recommend this place and I will stay there again.

My husband and I had a wonderful time in Galena, the Renaissance is walking distance to the business's. We loved sitting on the patio drinking coffee after a long day of shopping. On the second night stay, we enjoyed the hot tub. Nicely provided was robes and extra towels for the hot tub..

It is nice that you can walk to town from here. So many people do enjoy the back deck either having morning coffee or evening cocktails. Glad you tried the Hot Tub. Thanks for the Great Review. More

The pictures on the Internet did not do the Napa Suite justice. The suite was very well kept and cozy felt right at home! The property felt homey and safe. The staff was friendly and helpful. Great location walking distance to main street! Will definetly be back and recommend to Friends!

The Safari Suite was amazing! The owners did a great job decorating with many extras. Victoria was very personable and accommodating with any requests. She had a wonderful array of homemade baked goods the next morning along with other breakfast items. As my husband said, "A person would have to be way too picky to not find anything here they...

This little place is simple and suited for someone who is only wanting someplace to sleep. The price is great, it has a continental breakfast of fruit, yogurt, pastries, oatmeal, and boils eggs.

Our room was very clean and we really enjoyed the double whirlpool. It was very relaxing. Hostess was nice but would have been very helpful to have more information of places to visit and restaurants to eat. Map of main shopping area as informed us it was walking distant but didn't tell us we needed to turn off the road... More

Thanks for your recent review. Glad you enjoyed your Suite and made use of the whirlpool tub. My office is small so I don't have room for a lot of brochures. However I looked around and I think I may have found a spot. Thanks for the suggestion. Victoria More
