    We looked for a nice venue close to the airport, as most of our guests were from out of town and we wanted it to be convenient for them. We were looking for reasonable prices both for the event and the guest rooms, and to serve great food for the guests.

    We had both the ceremony and the reception at the hotel. The reception was at one of the O'Hare ballrooms which was perfect for our party of about 100 guests. Our point of contact from the hotel was Sarah. She was absolutely amazing. Though we did try to keep it simple, we did have some special requests, and she always responded positively and promptly. The only extra we had to pay for was to offer three meal choices instead of just two. The night itself was completely worry-free for us, and everything went out exactly as we planned it.

    Being anxious before the ceremony, we hardly touched the hors d'oeuvres, but all the guests mentioned how good they were. For main course we served filet mignon, tilapia, and a vegetarian strudel. The tilapia and the strudel were good, but the filet was absolutely amazing.

    Beside being close to the airport, it was also a 10-15 minutes walk from the station with trains to the city, so it was very easy for the out-of-town guests to go see downtown Chicago. Parking was free to all of our guests. And getting married at the hotel we were also pampered with the bridal suite which was definitely a plus, including chocolate and Champagne.

    We were promised that there would be free shuttle from the hotel to the train station, but when we arrived there the receptionist said they will only provide free shuttle to the airport, so that was the only thing that did not go as planned. Note also that the guest rooms do not come with breakfast, and a full breakfast costs $15/person. We couldn't get any volume discount on that.

    Bottom line we were very happy to have our important day at this hotel, and we highly recommend it.

    The Crowne Plaza in Rosemont is an affordable, budget-friendly venue where we held our ceremony and reception this past May. The whole hotel has an "airports" theme which is cute. The ballrooms are spacious--the Balmoral Room where we had our cocktails is beautiful. The walls are mediocre, but the lighting and decor is modern and eco-friendly. For those interested in an outdoor ceremony, there is a large patio available, but in my opinion, the noise of the planes flying overhead from O'Hare Airport is too loud to make it a viable option. If you want to use the patio, make sure to come and check it out during the day of week and time you would have the ceremony so that you can evaluate yourself how loud the noise is during that time. The catering options are varied, and we were able to have two specialty drinks without an extra charge.

    Our venue coordinator, Sarah, was very responsive and accommodating. I gave a few marks off because we had some issues when she seemed to forget or retract a some verbal promises made during a meeting. We did resolve those issues to our satisfaction, however.
