We have stayed here before. Always been a pleasure. This time they honored our late check in with an upgrade to a corporate room. Opulent! Four poster bed, massive entertainment center and dressers, chase lounge for relaxing, and elegant work table with solid cushioned chair. Bathroom with marble top and huge mirror. Refrigerator kept our left over pizza cool, had a microwave, and make yourself coffee.

Run down

The location was okay for our reason to be in Rockford. The pool was "being renovated" but when we looked through the covered windows, there was no work being done on it and it appeared that the ceiling was falling in. So I doubt if it will be open anytime soon. The internet connection was impossible to use, even when we went down to the business center. The hotel was not crowded, but they still gave us a room looking onto the parking lot and not the river. The room was also hotter than Africa. Tried to adjust the temp, but it didn't change it. It seemed that the restaurant might be nice, but it didn't open until 5, and that didn't work for our schedule while we were there. And be warned that there are only fast food restaurants in this area, so if you are looking for a nice lunch or very early dinner, there is nothing around. The complementary breakfast was very greasy. It appears that it was a classy hotel in the past. There was beautiful woodwork and furnishings, but they were very tattered. Leathers couches and chairs were ripped. Wallpaper was peeling. It was very sad. I would not stay here again.

overall, great

the staff was very friendly. when we needed a number to a cab company, they were happy to offer one. when we needed a suggestion of a pizza place that would deliver at bar time, they gave us some flyers and options. the hotel and restaurant are very beautiful. lots of antiques. the food and drinks at the restaurant were delicious. we had a riverview room with a whirlpool hot tub. the room was on the ground floor (meh) and the bedspread was not luxurious or fancy, and the tv was an old tube tv. overall though the place is beautiful and compared to your other options in rockford you cant go wrong.

Great weekend getaway!

We came to Rockford to see Ghost Brothers of Darkland County and wanted to spend the night before going home on Sunday. We've stayed at the hotels on Rte 20 before but this time we wanted to stay somewhere w/more personality. Cliffbreakers definitely has personality. From the Florentine boar on display in the lobby and the ornate architectural elements in the halls, it is a neat place to stay. The Rock River scenery from the hotel room was great (fall colors were outstanding)! The hotel is only located about 7 minutes from downtown with a lot less traffic than coming down from the Rte 20 hotels. We visited Anderson Japanese Gardens and the Nicholas Conservatory which were both close by (and beautiful). The restaurant is a great steakhouse - the dinner special for the evening was a 16 oz rib-eye which was cooked wonderfully. Food was good and reasonably priced - the staff was very friendly - the themed room was cool (we stayed in the Castle Room)! All in all, a very pleasant experience and my wife and I will definitely stop again if we are traveling in the Rockford area. The picture I attached is of the back of the hotel property from the east side of the Rock River in the park on the other side of the bridge from the hotel.

Older Hotel

My spouse and i went to this hotel for a company function. This is a nice looking hotel and is kept clean. It is the 'extras' that make a hotel rise above the others, but this place does not have those. The decore is fine, and the hallways and rooms are clean and nice. The bed was older and too soft for my liking. What hurts this establishement is the location. This part of Rockford is an older and run-down part of the city. The adjoining mall is showing its age, and there is nothing in the immediate neighborhood for entertainment or just to go walking outside. The view of the river is not worh the rice of the room. An institutional hot breakfazt was comlementary,.

Clean

Priced appropriately. Squeeky mattress (from just rolling over) that was a bit too saggy in the middle. Sort of wierd comment, I know, but odd to hear each time my 13 year old rolled over in the middle of the night
