Where do I even start? I would select this venue again in a heartbeat. This company knows how to do business! Their wedding coordinator Rebecca was one of the two major reasons we booked this venue. She was adorable, prompt, on top of everything and so accommodating. So many places in Chicago have huge turnover and it was so nice to work with the same person the entire time who clearly knows the company and the venue. From the private phone line for our guests to book their rooms to the boutique feel of the hotel and fantastic room rates for the center of downtown everything was perfect. Hotel Monaco should give Rebecca a raise she is a crown jewel and made our event so wonderful. The nice part is, you are the only event in their hotel that evening and get the entire 3rd floor with a gorgeous room just for cocktails that overlooks the Chicago river. Their is a room to prep all your decorations in on that floor and Glen the engineer would promptly let us in anytime we needed in the days prior to leading up to the wedding to get anything we needed.Sent on 09/27/2016
Now the second major thing, the food. My husband and I are huge foodies and we didn't want your typical "wedding food". We trialed the food first at south water kitchen (the restaurant in the hotel) and instantly fell in love! Our waiter Sean actually served us several times including our wedding during the year of planning and was wonderful and just seemed to completely love his job which made things so much fun. We choose the beef braised short ribs and white fish with quinoa that was incredible and all of our guests raved about it. The appetizers during cocktail hour with mini grill cheese and delicious goat cheese tartlets to just name a few. Our signature cocktail was a hit and designed by the bartender that won the Chicago Reader cocktail competition last year. Most of all everything was so easy, in a single package including our cake. Of the 20 places we looked at it was by far the best value. Highly recommend.

Hotel Monaco Chicago was the PERFECT wedding venue. My husband and I were married at Hotel Monaco Chicago on July 18, 2015. We had the pleasure of working with Rebecca Lachman throughout the planning process. She is absolutely wonderful! She was so organized and attentive towards every detail. Throughout the planning, Rebecca and I exchanged many emails. She was always so responsive and patient with each and every question I had. She allowed us to come in several times to walk through everything. Rebecca took the time to really know what we wanted for our wedding day and she certainly delivered on the day of. She went as far as to give out her cell phone number to communicate with me, my mom, and sister throughout the weekend's events. Because of her, I was so calm on the day of my wedding because I knew I had absolutely nothing to be worried about with RebeccaSent on 08/07/2015

From the initial phone call to Lisa Danno about booking our wedding at Hotel Monaco until the time we checked out the experience was simply amazing. The attention to detailed paid by the staff was welcoming along with the over the top customer service. The hotel rooms were spacious and comfortable and the window seats are the perfect place to catch an afternoon nap or to gaze at the Chicago nighttime skyline. The ceremony and dinner were held in the private dining room of South Water Kitchen. Our dinner was amazing and like the staff of Hotel Monaco, the staff of SWK was top notch. I highly recommend considering Hotel Monaco to host your wedding. You will not be disappointed.Sent on 10/01/2014
