The pictures do not do justice for this hotel. It was very clean and a nice in the room. The staff was exceptional and the room had WiFi. It was a very nice place to stay and was walking distance to Main St.

The historical ambiance and beautiful fountain was the first thing we saw when entering this cozy hotel. Beautifully laid out in the city of Galena, Illinois, right off the 20 highway, close to stores and restaurants and can easily walk to all the events. Loved the personal touch and great service accommodations!

Loved the suite on the 1st floor. Didn't have to schlep the bags up the stairs. Two entryways, spacious bathroom with a spa tub, continental breakfast with flexible timing (unlike some B & B's) at a reasonsble cost. Lovely visit!

Recently stayed at the suites for a last-minute getaway with my fiancee and we were both very pleased with our stay! The building is very close to downtown Galena, parking was easy and free, and the grounds are nicely decorated with flowers. We stayed in Room 3 and it was adorable and affordable. It was much bigger than what the... More

Stayed fri/sat night in a standard room ($109w/tax) and it was room #3. Booked it the morning of our visit. The staff was great! Was able to just walk into town from the hotel which was great. If your not a fan of hearing the road traffic stay away from this room. I actually liked the sound of the traffic... More

Whenever I visit Galena I always stay at the Renaissance and I always get the room with a kitchen. It's so cozy and the staff is wonderful. I also love the fact that they have a hot tub...Fabulous!!!!

We had a wonderful stay at the Renaissance Suites. The room was clean and much more than we expected. Within walking distance to downtown Galena. The whole property was very inviting and clean. Will definitely be back.

Loved the Gargoyles. Waking distance to Galena, IlL. Odd arrangement but plenty of character. Some rooms require walking up stairs. B&B. I thought the breakfast had too many sweets but that would not be a factor in staying there again. Some road noise.

We enjoyed another wonderful stay at Renaissance Suites and enjoyed a leisure holiday weekend in Galena. The Renaissance is so convenient to walk to town, just a few short blocks. The continental breakfasts is more than we need to start our day. Fresh coffee and fresh homemade pastries, breads & rolls, YUM! Many other choices (cereal, fruit etc) available as... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Restoring historic buildings and adapting them for modern use is painstaking work. The properties upon which Renaissance and Riverboat now stand were first acquired by Daniel Smith Harris in 1839. The lots changed hands many times until the Beltram and Weber Buildings were constructed in the 1850's. Over the years they've been held by many parties and served a variety of uses. When we purchased them, both were in disrepair. We decided to restore them and to turn them into accommodations that Galena could be proud of. Our goal is to provide 'a home away from home' for our visitors. We sought to combine three elements; comfort, elegance and a sense of history. You'll experience that "home away from home" feeling in comfortable elegance. Your Hosts, Terry and Victoria Cole ... more   less
