How about a spooky night with Amelia's Ghost Tours? Our little, frozen in the 1800s town is a nice backdrop for ghost hunting. http://ow.ly/ZbsVV #GetToGalena

Food was great in all 3 restaurants. Rooms comfortable and clean. Free Happy Hour was great. Despite other reviewer's comment, they DO accept credit cards in the bar and restaurants AND there is free garage parking for guests of the hotel.

We love to visit the DeSoto House's Sunday brunch. It's in a beautiful atmosphere and the food is very tasty. We have three small children and they are always very accommodating. Highly recommend!

Stayed here with my wife for a mini-honeymoon after our wedding. The hotel is beautiful with a lot of history, we stayed here our first night. Bed was very firm for us and that may be the only bad thing we have to say. Cocktail hour and breakfast were great.

Outstanding service and a great, old time feel. Located in exactly the right location on Main Street. Will be coming back in the future.

Desoto offers a buffet breakfast to guests and others each Sunday. Nicr omelette station, lovely piano music. But generally just a buffet breakfast which means it is all about the companions rather than the food.

We had breakfast in the Courtyard restaurant and loved the scene! Reminded us of the French Quarter in New Orleans just a bit. Food was great too. And there's a walking tour you can do afterwards. This is a neat historical hotel.
