The DeSoto House Hotel

The DeSoto House Hotel opened its doors in 1855 and continues to welcome guests with hospitality, charm and history, awarding us the title of "Illinois' Oldest Operating Hotel."


Throughout the years we have welcomed such memorable guests as Abraham Lincoln, William Jennings Bryan, and serving as the presidential campaign headquarters for Ulysses S. Grant just to name a few.
