Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Perched on the banks of the Rock River, this boutique hotel offers a convenient greater Chicagoland location, awesome event options, ample on-site accommodations, and a distinguished, eclectic style thanks to its collection of European and American antiques.
  • Opt for the Grand Ballroom if you’re planning a lavish affair…it’s Rockford’s largest venue and a truly impressive space. There are elegant choices available for more intimate gatherings, too, and every room boasts unique design elements and fabulous flexibility.
  • Your overnight guests will love the affordable, comfortable (and pet-friendly!) rooms as well as the hotel’s great perks, which include a gym, year-round indoor pool, breezy sundeck, and access to the river’s fantastic bike and walking path.


Complimentary Dressing Suite for all couples who book the full package! Please contact the venue for details.
