Every one of the staff I'd encounter asked me how my day was going and if there was anything I needed. It's rare that you get this level of customer service. They gave us a ride to and from dinner but you can also walk to many restaurants and shops. We had a 1st floor room with a great view...

We enjoyed the delicious milk and cookies in the evening by our fireplace in our white robes in the room. The decorations can be a bit old fashioned, but the bathrooms are definitely luxuriously modern. Delicious breakfast of fruit, cheese, cured meats, tea, and coffee. The breakfast reminded us of our stays in Mexico. A stroll in island park after...

I'm writing this as I sit on my balcony enjoying the beautiful Fox River. The staff here are so friendly, they treat each guest like a VIP. The room was cozy and relaxing. We ordered a bath basket from the spa which was a wonderful in-room way to feel pampered. We did have breakfast at Atwater's. The food was delicious...

Not only does this stately old colonial manor look good, it delivers! Our room was large, beautiful decorated with old fashioned lamps and an enormously high four poster bed that needed steps to get up to it. Everything was tastefully decorated, from light fittings to a real-fire that you switched on, and whirlpool bath even the toiletries smelt divine. We...

Although I am local to this hotel, we chose to have our company planning meeting here recently. Since there would only be 6 of us, we had the meeting in my suite. WOW. Upon check-in, the room (my suite) was completely prepped for the meeting the next day. All they had to do was bring in coffee, juice, and breads...

Late planning could have ruined our 30th wedding anniversary but Stephanie from Herrington Inn put us on a wait list and called when they had a cancellation. She made our 30th wedding anniversary a dream come true.. It was everything we could have asked for and more, Beautiful property with a romantic atmosphere. The staff was very friendly and accommodating.

Everything about the hotel, restaurant, and spa exceeded my expectations! The room was fantastic - really comfortable bed, nice balcony, charming fireplace and decadent tub.

Yes, it is expensive but we felt it was all worth it. Lovely room on the second floor facing the river. Too cold to sit on the balcony but still pretty enough to take some pictures. Definitely request a river view room and be willing to pay the little bit extra. Continental breakfast very nice. There's a European boutique feel...
