We didn't just stay at the DeSoto House, we had an entire wedding there and it couldn't have been better. Deb Bertucci and the rest of the staff at DeSoto House were amazingly professional, helpful, accommodating and so understanding. They were available to me and my husband as we started planning for the wedding and reception back in January through to the wedding itself last Saturday, when my son and daughter-in-law said "I Do", and even afterward during the reception dinner in the beautiful Ball Room and dancing down in the Courtyard. Deb was a wonderful source of ideas and information on just about all aspects of the wedding. As a destination wedding, we think this was hard to beat. All our wedding guests were very impressed with the historic DeSoto House Hotel itself, and with the town of Galena which offers so much to visitors. Thanks again to Deb and everyone at the DeSoto House Hotel.

We held a rehearsal dinner for our son's wedding at the DeSoto and quite of few wedding guests stayed at the hotel. The staff worked very hard to accommodate all of our requests and 'went the extra' mile to ensure that we had a lovely set up in the room, adequate service staff and good food. They even altered their standard menu at our request. Our guests raved.

Staying at the DeSoto house was a dream I always had during my many visits to historic Galena. However, one very cold November, we unfortunately had an inside room (no outside windows) and were unable to control the heat. Our room reached about 90 plus degrees and the only option we had was to sleep with our hall door open!

It was explained that the heat could not be controlled.

This unfortunately made the entire experience a nightmare.

We (me, spouse, 2 elementary school aged children) stayed at the DeSoto House in October 2003, and we had a wonderful time. From our large room overlooking Main Street, we were able to easily walk through historic downtown Galena. With tastefully decorated rooms named after historical figures who stayed at the hotel, and floors that bowed in slightly toward the hallway, the DeSoto oozes history and charm, which even won over our 21st century princesses who are accustomed to resort hotels with all the modern amenities. We hope to return some day.
