The entire staff from the beginning of my initial inquiry up to and including the day of my event went above my expectations . Extremely happy.

If you are thinking of booking your wedding or are looking for the perfect place — The Herrington Inn & Spa is it! Look no further! Of course it helped that we had the perfect weather on 6/14/14, however, the entire wedding planking experience was stress-free thanks to The Herrington Inn staff. Special thanks to Deanne, Cyndi and all other staff — you all made our experience so memorable. We were moving from CA to TX the week before our wedding and because The Herrington was so wonderful, our experience was virtually stress-free. From the time we initially looked at the venue to 2 days after our wedding, and some visits in between, The Herrington Inn & Spa went above and beyond — never disappointing (did I say milk and cookies are brought to the room fresh, daily?!). Thank you for making our wedding day perfect!

There are no words. From the first 30 seconds that I was on the phone with Deanne, I knew that we would be planning our dream wedding at the Herrington. Deanne and the entire Herrington staff was truly happy to accommodate us and our guests. You can tell that the Herrington staff enjoys their job-and I believe this alone can set the Herrington apart from the rest. If you are looking for top notch service, attention to detail, promptly returned phone calls, emails and text messages, professional/fun staff, a BEAUTIFUL property…look no further. Please consider the Herrington when shopping venues, you won’t be disappointed.

I truly enjoyed my experience at the Herrington. From the food, to the venue, to the incredible wait staff, our entire event went smoothly because of the time and effort they took in preparing for it. The Herrington goes above and beyond what’s asked and delivers and unforgettable experience. I would recommend the Herrington to anyone looking to host a beautiful event.

The Herrington Inn goes “Above and Beyond” your expectations. I cannot say enough about the staff, service and the Herrington Inn itself.

I appreciated that when I had little things pop-up, such as needing coats taken directly to our guests rooms, that it wasn’t a problem. Everything was easy and seamless, which is a large part of the reason our event was so successful.

The Herrington offers a great experience in a cozy historic environment. Everything from staff to food is personalized and terrific. I would recommend the Herrington for any company function and especially for weddings. In addition to our Pearle Vision Holiday events, I have attended a wedding at the Herrington—and it was beautiful.

Our wedding guests came from the four corners of the Earth–some very well traveled–and absolutely everyone was impressed by everything that the Herrington Inn helped us put together for our wedding. Thank you!

The Herrington was the best venue we could have asked for. Deanne and Cyndi were incredibly friendly and accommodating, and Deanne went out of her way on the big day to ensure everything went smoothly. All other staff (the servers, the bartender, etc.) were thoughtful and attentive, as well. All the guests at the wedding raved about the food, as well as the impeccable service, and the overall experience was outstanding.

Our entire experience was magnificent, and the staff did a superlative job accommodating our needs. Every detail for our two-day Board of Directors retreat was expertly managed. The Board members loved the facility, and didn’t mind at all the 45-minute ride from O’Hare Airport. One director commented that he thought this was going to be “just another airport hotel meeting,” but it was so much better. I’m expecting that the board members will want to return soon.

Gem of whole Chicagoland – Service, professionalism, timeliness, food quality are second to none.

We held a 2-day executive meeting at the Herrington Inn and could not have been more pleased. The grounds, rooms and meeting spaces are beautiful. The food is excellent and the staff is wonderful! I would not hesitate to hold a wedding or other event at this amazing venue and look forward to staying there again.
