ReviewsWrite a review
Karen's expertise and passion for her work shone through at every stage of the planning process. She took the time to understand our vision, offered invaluable insights, and worked tirelessly to bring every detail to life. Just one example that other future couples may run into: my husband has Celiac disease and Karen and her team were incredible with accommodating not only his allergy, but many of our other guests that also have varying food allergies as well (dairy-free, vegan, nut allergies, even an allergy to allium were all accommodated). I cannot tell you how many guests commented on how appreciative they were to be able to eat the food at our wedding, because so many other venues do not offer that level of flexibility and care.
What sets Karen apart is her flexibility and genuine commitment to creating magical moments. Her dedication extended beyond the planning stages. She checked in regularly, ensuring that all our needs were met, and her warm and friendly demeanor made us feel like we were working with a friend who truly cared about the success of our wedding. She heard us when we mentioned how important it was for us to have a candy bar later in the evening, and she helped make it happen! She heard how we would love to have the popcorn machine up and running at the hotel bar after the reception, and she ensured that there were bartenders on-staff until 2AM (they usually close before midnight) and that popcorn machine? It was working overtime for our party! Karen's organizational skills are impeccable, and she seamlessly coordinated all the moving parts of our wedding, ensuring a smooth and stress-free experience for us and our guests. Most notably, her ability to handle unexpected challenges with grace and efficiency further showcased her exceptional leadership and professionalism.
In short, Karen's contribution to our wedding was invaluable, and we are profoundly grateful for the Hilton Northbrook and Karen's unwavering commitment to excellence. If you are considering this venue for your special day, rest assured they will go above and beyond to make it an unforgettable experience. Thank you, Karen and all of the Hilton Northbrook staff, for making our wedding a truly unforgettable occasion!
Amazing & Luxurious Wedding Venue/Guest Accommodations
From the time I stepped into the hotel while venue shopping 5 months before our big day, up until the wedding reception ended, every moment on the property, and every member of their staff, made us ALL feel valued, as their special guests. The service was simply outstanding! The ballroom was spectacular, our bridal suite was beyond comfortable, the scenic natural beauty of their outdoor gardens were absolutely breathtaking for taking pictures, and the menu we selected was scrumptious and delightful. Karen went above and beyond, and orchestrated everything to fall in place, in ensuring my wedding reception was perfect! All our guests were raving about the impeccable service. Whomever, Karen recommended for our vendors, from the DJ and photographer/videographer, to our wedding cake and floral/decor vendors, were all beyond outstanding! To this day, I can still close my eyes and reminisce the glory and joy of our wedding reception, that was all made possible, by Karen Dragel and the Hilton at Northbrook/Chicago- A fairytale dream come true :)
Amazing Venue and Staff
the food. The food was delicious and if you are looking for food outside the traditional dried piece of chicken, this place works with you on a menu that your guests will love. Our cocktail hour was a hit with grilled cheese and tomato soup shooters, bbq meatballs and even sushi. Our dinner included sirloin, chicken stuffed with gouda and panchetta, and our vegetarian dish was a portabello mushroom stuffed with feta and grilled vegetables. We had a late night snack option of sliders and chicken fingers/mozzarella sticks. We received so many compliments on the menu and it was all because Maureen took her time helping us craft the one that worked for us. Truly amazing venue and staff!

Charizma loves doing events with Hilton Chicago Northbrook! They have plenty of rooms and spaces for cocktails, ceremonies, receptions, and more. They have now even added an outdoor area for ceremonies! We have used their venue for our annual showcase, we have done their New Years events, and they are always wonderful to work with. Their staff are all very friendly and great to work with and they really know how to act as a team with all of their vendors for an event. Highly recommended!
Elegant, professional....everything you want for your special day!
