Welcome to Riverboat Suites

Voted #1 Best of Places to Stay in Galena Illinois

We are situated in the heart of Historic Downtown Galena, just blocks from the shops, restaurants, and attractions that make Galena, Illinois so special. And because we are on the Main Street level, there are no hills to climb. We want you to save your calories for all the fun activities Galena has to offer!

Recently renovated and under new management, the Riverboat Suites offers affordable luxury with a clean and contemporary décor. We lovingly joke that we are antique and wallpaper free while still respecting the historic architecture of our 1850s structure.

We serve a simple and yummy continental breakfast each morning that guests can enjoy anytime between 7:00-10:00 a.m. Our mantra is that our breakfast schedule should accommodate yours.

At the Riverboat Suites, we value diversity, and we offer a diverse set of accommodations to meet today’s traveler needs. Whether you are traveling with friends or as a couple, with children or with pets (yes, we are both pet and family-friendly), we welcome you with open arms. For families or groups traveling together, we have two adjoining rooms and multiple rooms that can accommodate three or more guests. For guests with mobility challenges, we offer two street-level rooms. For those seeking romance, we offer five rooms with both a fireplace and a whirlpool tub. And if you need a kitchen, we have multiple options where that is possible.
