Spring has sprung! Perfect temperatures for a nice walk or bike ride outside! What is your favorite outdoor activity in this weather?

Hotel
The DeSoto House Hotel opened its doors in 1855 and continues
to welcome guests with hospitality, charm and history, awarding
us the title of “Illinois’ Oldest Operating Hotel.”

Throughout the years we have welcomed such memorable
guests as Abraham Lincoln, William Jennings Bryan, and
serving as the presidential campaign headquarters for
Ulysses S. Grant just to name a few.

General's Restaurant inside the Desoto House Hotel was very good. The prosciutto wrapped chicken was very well prepared and presented. I would recommend it.

My husband and I stayed there the weekend of February 22nd for a murder/mystery package. The hotel rooms were much larger than expected; the food was fantastic; the staff very helpful and courteous; the hotel was extremely clean and just what we expected. The only downsides were the towels were a little scratchy and make sure you run the fan in the winter - otherwise it won't heat properly. We stayed in the King Main overlooking Main street. The room was exactly as pictured. We will definitely stay there again. (The murder/mystery dinner was a lot of fun too!)

My daughter and I stayed there 11-26-11. The rooms and the Desoto House itself was warm and inviting. Everyone we met was warm and so eager to make our stay there a memorable one. What I feel people should also know that staying there was just not a get away but you actually feel like you stepped back in history. You would not believe how many people do not know what Galena has to offer with all its history. I can not wait to go back and stay there again. I will be telling everyone I meet about the Desoto House. Cynthia Richardson
