Expensive rates for the location
The Herrington Inn & Spa is located in Geneva, Illinois, although the hotel's decor was inspired by the luxury lodgings of France and Italy. Housing a mere 61 guest rooms, this boutique property offers visitors a unique hotel experience with services like in-room bath drawings (offered by the hotel's spa) and a complimentary European-style continental breakfast. Each of The Herrington's rooms features furnishings reminiscent of a Victorian parlor, including stone mantels above the fireplaces, plush sofas and beds, and private balconies. But you'll find 21st century amenities, too, including whirlpool tubs, honor bars and complimentary high-speed Internet access. Recent guests highly recommend making the most out of a stay at The Herrington Inn by indulging in a treatment at The Spa, which visitors praise for its ample services and friendly staff. The in-house restaurant, Atwater's (named in honor of one of Geneva's first settlers), also receives compliments for its classy ambiance and regional fare. Although some travelers note that a stay at The Herrington will cost you a pretty penny, many say the experience is completely worth the price. You'll find this inn in northeastern Illinois, about 40 miles west of Chicago.
