    Just Wow Magical Night

    Wow, I am not even sure where to start with our review of Holiday Inn Gurnee Convention Center! Absolutely everything was incredible! We both fell in love with the look and feel of the venue due to working with Jenna Nelson where she took us around the venue and explained the different areas. She took us through a general run through of what most couples do on their day but let us know they were very open to any creative ideas we had to make things a little different for our day. She really put our minds at rest and we knew the venue it was definitely the right place for us. During all the months leading up to the wedding we were in constant contact Jenna and her team who was also amazing. We obviously had so many questions and requests she was there to quickly respond to all our emails and give helpful friendly advice for everything. When we actually got to see the venue the day of the wedding we were absolutely blown away! Even the most beautiful pictures still don’t seem to do justice for how beautiful of a location it is. The whole place just has a magical feeling to it. I do realize I am reviewing a Holiday Inn; however give Jenna and her team a chance, it was absolutely stunning. People often ask us what was the best part about our wedding day and for both of us the best part about the day was that we didn’t worry about anything. Jenna worked very closely with the vendors Their operation is smooth and slick, the co-ordination they have with their staff and vendors is amazing. It was an incredible feeling to know that we could relax and enjoy our day knowing everything was going smoothly and our guests were all enjoying themselves. We never had to keep track of time, Jenna was there making sure everything was running smoothly and on time. If we had any advice to couples looking to plan their wedding (for the first time!) I think we would both advise that preparation goes such a long way. Always listen to the advice the venue has to offer, they will know best! They’ve seen many weddings so they know what will work and what may not come off as well as you’re thinking. Jenna gave us an amazing recommendation on backdrops and let me tell you Ruben with EZE design is it. We highly recommend Holiday Inn Gurnee Convention Center, Jenna Nelson, and her staff! From the start they worked with us to accommodate our unconventional circumstances. Everything felt so personal and dedicated to us, devoted to making our day as incredible as it could be. They worked with us to create something that fit into our budget, giving us multiple options and never pressured into something we felt uncomfortable with. I think what makes the Jenna Nelson different from the rest is how personal everything is. From the moment we first made contact with Jenna, through to leaving the day after our wedding everything was a joy. The venue is stunning and so incredibly peaceful! We truly experienced a fairy-tale wedding at The Holiday Inn Gurnee Convention Center! Thank you Jenna and staff of the Holiday Inn Gurnee Convention Center, you made our day the most special day of our lives.

    My husband and I recently had our daughters wedding reception here at the Holiday Inn. Our rating says it all. We were extremely happy with everything that happened last Saturday. From the initial plans and working with Ingrid to the end of the night - it was as close to a perfect day as possible. Ingrid made everything run smooth and was even there to make sure our daughter's day ran perfectly. The food was delicious. We had the filet, chicken and vegetarian dishes and received no complaints only lots of compliments. All the staff were friendly but professional. All were willing to contribute in their way to make this event one to be remembered.

    We held both my Hindu wedding ceremony and wedding reception at the Holiday Inn. The staff did an amazing job making sure everything was perfect for our big day. I spent a lot of time planning with Jeanette and she did a wonderful job overseeing the execution of everything. Chef Chris and Chef Parvin worked very hard on the Indian food and we received lots of compliments on the food and presentation. The staff, service, and presentation was that of a high end hotel. I highly recommend this venue!
