About

Guests 50 to 600

The Doubletree Guest Suites Chicago/Downers Grove has undergone a $5 Million Dollar renovation in 2008.
We offer 2 Ballrooms and 247 all suite overnight accommodations.
Our Esplanade Ballroom is one of the most unique ballrooms in the western suburbs of Chicago. Its round, completely enclosed in glass, sits in the middle of a lake, and is surrounded by forest preserve. The Esplanade Ballroom can accommodate up to 600 guests for a reception.
The Hotel Grand Ballroom can accommodate up to 325 reception guests and was completely renovated in 2018.
We also offer venues for ceremonies and rehearsal dinners. Our Esplanade Restaurant can be reserved on Friday and Saturday evenings for small weddings or large rehearsal dinners.

Our culinary team, banquet staff and catering managers are dedicated to only one event each day so we offer a higher level of attention than you might receive from other event venues.

We look forward to creating memories to last a lifetime with you!

    Beautiful All Around!

    We were married here in May and it was spectacular! Working with Janet was amazing! From the cocktail hour to the reception everything was absolutely amazing. And it rained! Everyone was still blow away by the beauty of the room and the beauty of the views. The food was delicious and with over 330 guests we received lots of compliments on how great and hot the food was. The staff was very easy to work with and very accommodating! We were overall very pleased. This was the first venue we looked at and were sold. Definitely check it out!

    One of the prettiest venues in Chicago's suburbs, and Janet Lobo rocks!

    We found the Esplanade Lakes entirely by chance. Since we'd never attended an event there, we were unaware of such a spectacular venue sitting right in our backyard. The pictures of this venue speak for its beauty, but this review aims to speak for the wonderful person that Janet Lobo is.

    It was just days short of a year before our big day, and I persisted in my frantic search for the appropriate venue. Complicating matters most was the fact that our events were scheduled for Labor Day weekend, and most if not all venues are naturally most sought after over long weekends. I drove to the Downers Grove DoubleTree to meet with an event manager, and was ever so fortunate to meet Janet. Finding others with her decades of hospitality experience would not be easy, but this woman will go beyond the moon and back for her clients. In an attempt to be as concise as possible, I cannot enumerate how much she did to assuage us in the tensest moments of the year-long planning process.

    So long as you hold up your end of the working relationship and do YOUR part to plan in a timely manner, you will not have a single regret hosting your event here. Admittedly, it is easy to get lost in the glamor of everything, but Janet is keen on reminding you that you can only plan so much until it's beyond your control. Of course, there will be a handful of small issues that escape even the most meticulous planning. This is where Janet's experience and savvy came into play; she dealt with everything skillfully, and none of our guests could identify any of the day's tiny shortcomings.

    Thank you Janet, a trillion times over, for making the final event of our wedding one we can never forget. In you we not only someone so adept and professional, but also a friend for life.

    I had my wedding reception at Esplanade Lakes and it was absolutely amazing! I worked with Angela and she is a pleasure to work with. She's very organized and was extremely helpful. No detail was overlooked.
    The food and service was phenomenal and the space itself is incredible. We stayed in the hotel as well and the suites were very nice. I would recommend Esplanade Lakes to anyone!
