    We always stay at the DeSoto Hotel when visiting Galena. It's a beautifully restored Victorian style hotel conveniently located on Main Street. The rooms are clean and wonderfully decorated in the style of the time. The rooms have a hair dryer and a coffee maker,...More

    No it doesn't have any of those. It has ice bucket and traditional shampoo lotion etc. The hotel does have two complementary water bottles and a small chocolate on first day of arrival.
