This place is pricey and well rated. I expect the best and have stayed before and had a nice time. This time was not good. I turned on the jacuzzi and what looked like 10-12 dead baby moths came out!!!! I mentioned it at the front desk and they cleaned it. Turned it on again. More bugs. To top it off, as I was walking down to get a cup of tea at breakfast, Someone had vomited in the hall. So disgusting!!! Lastly, just as an FYI, the continental breakfast because of Covid, cold cereal and prepackaged is great. But I don’t know many adults who eat Trix, Cocoa Puffs or Cinnamon Toast Crunch. Not a good stay for us. Not sure we’ll be back.

This is a really wonderful hotel. The staff is very friendly, courteous and helpful The room was extremely clean and comfortable! Great linens, robes, slippers, nice toiletries. Our room had a balcony, fireplace,wet bar and heated bathroom floor!! We had dinner and breakfast at Atwater’s. Michael (dinner) and Sheila (breakfast) took excellent care of us and the food was delicious. We highly recommend The Herrington Inn & Spa. We would definitely stay here again and would be sure to get in a spa treatment!!

Picked the hotel for its great location. Heard great things about the spa so figured the hotel would be okay. Checked in and was not told about the new cleaning policy (website did not mention either). Understand the need for it, but then leave enough towels and amenities in the room for the duration of the stay! No bottled water in the room. Asked at front desk and was charged $6.00!! The amount doesn’t matter. It is the idea a “luxury” hotel would not have water in the room is comical. Room was musty and furniture was broken. Overall the hotel was clean and again the location can’t be beat. Just a few tweaks, would make this a spectacular hotel.

Great little boutique hotel. Friendly staff, generous room sizes and nice on-site restaurant. I think all the rooms have some sort of outdoor space with a view- we had a courtyard room but could see the river from our balcony. We went for a weekend to explore the area. Geneva has lots of nice places to eat. The Fox River trail is great for walking and biking (bike rentals close). Can't wait to go back in the fall!

Geneva is one of my favorite cities on the planet. It is just my happy place. The Fox River is so pretty, so staying at the Herrington with such a great view was a treat! With covid it wasn’t very busy. Everyone diligent wearing masks and using sanitizer. Love that they give you milk and cookies at check-in (although not as good as the doubletree cookies). Adding the milk is such a great finishing touch!! I feel special! Like my grandma just treated me to milk and cookies!! For an old hotel one wouldn’t expect such immaculate bathrooms and linens... so that was a nice surprise. I loved the view from our terrace. Although there was construction on the bridge so that was a little noisy - but not enough to rain on my happy parade .
