Nestled among the rolling hills of picturesque Galena, Illinois, arguably one of the most beautiful and historic getaways in Illinois, is a special place where memories are made.
Welcome to AuClair. A premier venue for weddings, company meetings, retreats or special events, we accommodate up to 300 guests at the stately Ramada Hotel of Galena.
With no detail too small, no request too great, AuClair makes your event or big day a sumptuous experience. The AuClair has been transformed into a wedding wonderland for couples and a tasteful haven for corporate meetings and retreats – with nearly 10 acres of manicured lawns, forest glades, waterside gardens, a rustic red barn and reflecting pond.
Revel in the luxury of well-appointed guest rooms and luxurious suites before or after your event. Bridal parties enjoy a relaxing massage or primp and prep for the big day at the onsite salon and day spa.
Wandering out onto the pristine, wraparound, 3,000 square feet deck, the irresistible lounge area beckons all to behold the serene grounds that stretch before them. With cocktails in hand or shoes off in meditation, everyone breathes a peaceful sigh in the arms of AuClair.
