Irish is a Wonderful hotel-very large 2-room whirlpool suite, wonderful king bed and luxurious linens, with fireplace, refrig and wetbar. The couples massage was a surprise and I loved the quality of spa decor, staff experience and friendliness. The facial was wonderful. The hot breakfast and fresh scones were delicious. We had raspberry and cinnamon apple. The hotel staff are very friendly and keep the place clean. The gift shop has Irish souvenirs and Irish snack foods. The Pub had a duo playing Irish and American songs and the bar was lively and we sang along. Great whiskey selection too. This is your best Hotel choice in Galena.

This hotel was an exceptional find. Easy to get to, big rooms and the staff were super friendly. Secret little hiking path behind the hotel was a nice find. Fitness center a little underwhelming, but got the job done.

This hotel is very nice. We got the presidential suite, and boy was it worth the money. This room was amazing. It was huge and comfortable. The staff was very friendly. Do NOT miss the scones in the morning. Trust me. So. Many. Sinks.

We had a wonderful time this weekend - the manager and staff at the hotel are some of the nicest people we have ever met - the room was clean and spacious- it needs a bigger Tv and I didn’t like the pillows but the bed itself was comfortable - The Restaurant In Hotel is amazing - great food great entertainment great FREE hot breakfast - wonderful experience we will return for sure

When I hear the term "boutique hotel" I think of something unique with rooks that have a definite personality which separates then from the ordinary. That being the case, I was somewhat dissappointed to find this is no more than a typical Holiday Inn Express. Yes, the room was nice, clean and comfortable, but as for anything "boutique?" Well, maybe the prints hanging on the wall, but not much else. As for the "valley view?" Looking out the window at a parking lot and a line of tress is really not much of a view. It also would have been nice for them to tell up up front that the pub was closed on Tuesday night, as we had planned to drive in and be able to relax for the evening in the pub. I rated this as three stars - not as there was anything bad, just somewhat misleading, especially given all the hype we have heard on the Saturday morning radio shows here in Chicago. Rather than rate Frank O'Douds separately, I will just say it is nice and welcoming, the food was typical of many similar "Irish" pubs - basic fare, but we only ate one meal there, so it would not be fair to offer a more extensive review. Bottom line: Don't go with an expectation of something truly unique as far as the accommodations go; they are pleasant and comfortable, but nothing different from similar hotels. The pub is a nice feature, but be aware of their children policy, as well. Had this been another hotel with the pub, I would have given it 5 stars..And, BTW, although they advertise the king suit as being a place to sit and watch TV from the love seat, the TV is in the bedroom portion and not easy to watch.
