In their own words…Take a moment to read some of our client testimonials:

Our company generally hosts a few off-site executive staff meetings each year — usually in downtown Chicago. Our team raved about The Herrington; its old world atmosphere, being on the Fox River. We received the same high level of service provided by downtown hotels at 1/3 the cost. This was a refreshing change. We will definitely be back.


This place is truly magical. The staff if 5 Stars all around and make you feel like family. My wife and I had our wedding here in September and we couldn’t be happier with our choice. The food was 5 stars, the accommodations were 5 stars, the cleanliness was 5 stars and the view/location was 5 stars. If you are thinking of visiting or having your wedding/event at the Herrington, just do it. You will never regret it. Deanne, and the Herrington wedding staff, out did any expectation we could ever imagine. On the night of our wedding, my wife’s grandfather got very sick and was no longer able to attend the reception, without a question, the Herrington delivered the entire wedding meal to him in his room. My wife and I were able to see him for a few minutes during dinner as well while Deanne and the staff made sure our guest were taken care of. No one even knew we stepped out for a few minutes. The cocktail reception on the river front was amazing. We had live music, passed appetizers and the drinks were flowing. Every single one of our guest, could not believe my wife and I were able to pull off a weekend as beautiful as this. The truth is, we couldn’t have without the help of the Herrington. The morning after the wedding, I was able to go to the lobby, and grab a tray of morning goodies, and have breakfast in bed with my wife. They have secured our business for any major event we will have in the area. Please, go visit them. You will have the time of your life and memories to last forever.



Thank you for your amazing service! You all made our Wedding the most wonderful day of our lives. We will treasure it for the rest of our lives. 😀

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.

Best place for a wedding! Guests raved about the food! Staff across the board was spectacular.

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.

We really loved this venue, excellent service, superb food and beautiful setting.
