We always only stay at the Desoto House when visiting Galena, IL. It has two choices for restaurants built in. It's right across the street from a good coffee shop.

As stated above, we have had two different rooms and neither had a refrigerator. They did have blow dryers in both rooms. We even had a suite with a fireplace.
