Only stayed two nights, but loved the location, loved the comfy bed, bedding and pillows, and the bathroom with the extra makeup table was fantastic. Staff were all super friendly, and parking was plentiful next to the hotel or in the lot across the street. Would definitely stay again!

This is our third time staying here and they never disappoint. From the early check in to the room upgrade to the chocolate covered strawberries, they go out of their way to make you happy. Everyone I met at the front desk was so polite, helpful and happy. I cannot say enough good things other than we will be back next year

We used to enjoy coming here (pre-pandemic). It was expensive, but they provided superior service. Not this time. There was no hot water, the bathtub plug was broken, but worst of all was the complete lack of hospitality that one could reasonably expect from a place this expensive. Very sad.Doubt we'll ever be back.

Tired room, shower wouldn’t turn off. Bath fittings fell off. Complimentary breakfast was minimal at best. Staff focussed on the paid for dinning room so cutlery ran out etc. Really disappointing for the money! Nice location on the river so great views…

Nice view (3rd floor) of Fox river, gas fireplace, great drinks at bar. Old world feel, lace curtains, dimly lit room. Cons: Bed was very high so for short people hard to get into and out of bed needed wooden steps provided in room to get in bed. Sheets were soft and pillows comfy. Shower no hot water. Told desk about no hot water they said have to run water 5 minutes but we did and no hot water.Strobe light on wall back of bed so there was a very odd flashing light all night. Hot tub had high lip so if you want to soak sore feet can't sit by tub to do that. Gas fireplace very nice. geese very loud in the morning but charming. Pros: Cookies and milk at desk from 5 til 11PM. Very friendly staff. Unique European style lobby and stairs decor. Used AARP discount but I think 10% discount for everyone I think. Nice location to walk downtown Geneva.

On a month-long road trip in September 2021, the Herrington Inn & Spa was a standout for its delightful location, welcoming lobby bar, attractive large river-view room, and excellent dining room. Sadly, we didn’t have a chance to sample the spa services but we would happily return for a longer stay!

Rooms were clean but needed various maintenance done. The bed was worn out and caused both my and my wife's backs to hurt badly. In room furniture was worn and uncomfortable. No signs anywhere so finding the front desk or anything else was cumbersome. Not worth the high price they charge. We booked for 3 nights and stayed one.

Totally inadequate guest parking. When we returned from dinner on Saturday night, we had to park 3 blocks away, and walk back to the hotel, as there was no parking spaces available. Morning continental breakfast was a joke. We came down at 8:00 a.m., there was no coffee, no plates, no juice glasses, no meat or cheese platter. The girl that was supposed to be in charge of filling these things, was standing there like a dummy. It wasn't until I complained, that she decided to move her rear. Poor lighting over the vanity in the room, made it difficult to shave. Tiny refrigerator and no microwave. I couldn't get reservations at the spa, even though I called 3 weeks in advance, and couldn't get dinner reservations, even though I called a week in advance. No priority given to guests. This hotel is way overpriced for what you get.

Very bad service The bed is not comfortable Big problem with the parking. The breakfast starts daily at 7am. The actual breakfast did not start until 7:45 am. The manager Stephanie is incredibly RUDE. Amanda was very kind and amazing. The tub is beautiful but dangerous to get and out of. Be careful. The GFI in the bathroom is very old and be replaced. This is only a brief list of all the issues we found. The owner needs to take better care of the hotel for both the guests and the personnel. We will never stay here again. And recommend no one else does either until improvements of the process and the communication of the services change. This hotel is worth $95 maximum per night. Best western is much better and better service by far.

Had a 2 night stay, Saturday-Monday. Room was ready when we arrived. Everyone was masked and so friendly! All our needs were taken care of and more. We didn't eat at the restaurant (wish we had), but we did sit at the bar a couple of times. Great drinks and service. Just ask at the reception area for your chocolate chip cookies! Our room was spotless and plenty of space. Cannot wait to return!
