Hotel Overview

You deserve the best and that's exactly what you'll get at this spectacular Galena hotel that's only minutes from downtown.


Galena hotels come in all shapes and sizes, but nowhere else will you find these amenities for such an affordable price. We boast a very convenient location to downtown Main Street Galena. Our new fantasy suites are dripping with luxurious amenities and are fit for royalty. No other suites in Galena come close in comparison.

Lodging in Galena has never been easier, especially during the busy seasons. Our indoor/outdoor pool with a separate inside hot tub features a swim-through option so you can choose to soak up the sun or stay in the shade indoors.

Other hotels in Galena try to keep up but fall short. Every room features new flat screen TV's and a microwave/refrigerator combo. Dig into a complimentary daily breakfast spread featuring piping hot waffles, fresh fruits, pastries, yogurt, juices and 100% Arabica coffee.

This Galena hotel is close to everything you need. Whether you're in town for skiing, checking out the local shopping and restaurants, going on historical tours and visiting landmarks, or a little rest, relaxation and romance, we have you covered. We're a hub for honeymooners.

We also regularly welcome business travelers at this Galena hotel. Frequent guests are employees of Honeywell and the railroad. Bus groups/tours also visit our quaint town. Dubuque, Iowa is just 15 miles away.

Our Galena hotel features easy access to shops, wineries, dining, art galleries and antique shops. We're within walking distance to US Grant's home. This Galena hotel is in the picturesque river city of Galena and has been under new ownership and management since August 2010. Our guests enjoy large spacious rooms with a sitting area. Most rooms also have a balcony or patio and the suites feature a Whirlpool tub and fireplace.

Book your next stay with Best Western Designer Inn & Suites for an ah-inducing getaway!
