Welcome to LodgingGuide's hospitality industry listings for the Rockford area.
Rockford’s name is derived from the ford which crosses the Rock River, around which the town was built in the mid-1800s. Rockford is Illinois’ second largest city, and is in the hilly north central region of the state, less than two hour’s drive from downtown Chicago, offering all of the big city features without the drawbacks of uncontrolled growth and traffic. Called “Forest City” in its early days, due to the dense forests of the Rock River valley, Rockford is known today as the “City of Gardens” for its thousands of acres of public parks, tree-lined streets, first rate golf courses and a variety of hiking trails through the forests and along the river. The early immigrants from Sweden, Italy and Eastern European countries who built Rockford’s initial industries also brought culinary and cultural traditions which survive in the rich selection of ethnic restaurants and specialty shops. Rockford offers the full range of lodging options, from full-service, contemporary hotels in the metropolitan areas, to intimate family-run bed and breakfast inns in the surrounding countryside, all within easy reach of downtown Chicago.
