About Cliffbreakers Northern Illinois Luxury Hotel & Fine Dining Restaurant
A Note from the Proprietor
It is my privilege to introduce you to our wonderful property, Cliffbreakers Riverside Resort. Situated on the bluffs, high above the Rock River in Rockford, Illinois, Cliffbreakers is a man-made landmark that compliments the natural beauty of that most prominent natural asset.
Cliffbreakers gives a Guest the impression of a graceful old-world hotel, but in truth it was created and built in two major phases – a restaurant and banquet center in 1993 and additional banquet space and a 105-room hotel in 1998. Decorated in hand-selected antiques and artifacts and renowned for outstanding Guest service and hospitality, Cliffbreakers has developed into a destination property for visitors throughout the Midwest. Whether for business meetings, weddings, social events, special occasions, weekend getaways or fundraising events, Cliffbreakers is known throughout the region as the prominent contributor and host to the community for doing business and celebrating life.
Carrying on the long-standing tradition of outstanding service to our Guests, we have renewed our focus on providing outstanding food, wine and spirits and an elegant, refined hotel experience. Because we have a uniquely beautiful property, we are particularly excited to reintroduce the property to businesses in the greater Rockford and Chicagoland markets for their business meetings, visiting executives, and vendor and customer gatherings. We continue to enjoy the strongest wedding business in the area because of the beauty of our natural setting and our fabulous collection of antiques, matched with our world-class food and unparalleled service. The combination of our tremendous legacy and our renewed focus on our Guests’ happiness and success makes us the most desirable venue for functions of all kinds.
It will be our distinct pleasure to serve you, whether in our beautiful world-class restaurant, in one of our spectacular river-view ballrooms, our cozy lounge, our inviting micro-brew style tap-room, or any of our wonderful antique-appointed hotel suites.
