We were extremely early for check-in; however, they still let us check-in and get a room! The front desk was very hospitable and helpful with any questions we had. My husband and I stayed for two nights during the week. There were special deals you...More
We stayed in the DeSoto House last May and I did a review. We returned to Galena to do the US Grant Walking Tour and decided to again stay in the DeSoto House. They have parking close by the hotel so you don’t have to...More
I typically prefer newer hotels over older (even historical landmark) hotels, but I really liked the DeSoto House. Built in 1855, it has a lot of character and is well maintained. My room had a high ceiling and some photos from the late 1800s or...More
Just returned from a girls' overnight stay at the DeSoto House. The Front Desk ladies were very nice and helpful. Was great to stay right downtown within walking distance of all the great shops and restaurants, and the room was very spacious, clean and well...More
Hotel is perfect for staying in Galena. Right on Main Street. Walk everywhere from here. Breakfast is very good. Restaurants are excellent. Rooms are clean and well maintained. Will definitely try to stay here every time we go back to Galena.

The rooms facing the dining area are the best when it decorated for Christmas. There are rooms facing Main St., a side street and the back park over the top of a couple buildings. As I recall the windows don't open and I would peek out as when I was there we had a corner room. facing Main and a side street. However the price varies and those corner rooms may reserve far out.
We have never stayed in a room facing the inside court area. Really, with all to see and do, I think all I did was moan from eating and was half in the bag from roaming the bars and then basically retiring to the room. Very interesting to just walk around the hotel and read the history. Not sure if this helps, Enjoy.
As stated above, we have had two different rooms and neither had a refrigerator. They did have blow dryers in both rooms. We even had a suite with a fireplace. I highly recommend the midweek internet options. They are... More
As stated above, we have had two different rooms and neither had a refrigerator. They did have blow dryers in both rooms. We even had a suite with a fireplace. I highly recommend the midweek internet options. They are great money savers and offer a view of Galena without the crowds. The food is fantastic and you can get vouchers from the specials. Vetmanage said it above and I concur, we will not stay anywhere else in Galena. It;s right downtown and offers free on site parking.
