The DeSoto House Hotel was the perfect backdrop for my dream wedding.
It was perfection from start to finish. The staff was there to attend to every need. My guests are still talking about the great time. It was my “Fairy Tale” come true. Can’t wait to celebrate every anniversary there. A very special place for us.

We had our wedding at the DeSoto House and couldn’t have asked for a better experience. The staff really went above and beyond to make sure it was perfect, And it was. The sales department made all the planning and preparation seem easy and smooth. It was wonderful. Thanks again and again.

Best place to stay in Galena!
In our opinion there isn't a better or more convenient place to stay in historic Galena. On Main Street in the heart of the tourist-happy shopping district. Food always excellent and plentiful in any of the three restaurants. Very comforatable rooms and an excellent staff. Yes they do it right at the DeSoto House.
