    Our Dream Come True!

    I had an unbelievably positive experience with the InterContinental - I highly recommend! I could go on & on about every great detail! I worked with Tara throughout the entire planning process (~10 months), and Kristen was our banquet manager during the night of the reception. First off, the location is absolutely gorgeous, so no need to bring in lots of rentals, decor, etc. - I was in the Renaissance Room, which speaks for itself and is versatile enough to naturally adapt to intimate or large weddings alike. The hotel itself was a convenient location for guests, but most importantly, since guests were staying in the same hotel as our reception, comfortable shoes, a couple minutes of rest, medications, the baby sitter, etc., were just an elevator ride away from the party. The food was out of this world, rest assured! (Thanks, Chef!)

    Tara was the incredible captain of my wedding vendor team. She [generously and patiently] answered my many questions, had a lot of experience and gave me context on what is typical/works best, and brought my vendors on the same page, since many had worked together before. My wedding day was absolutely perfect - no vendor hiccups/people running around late-lost-confused/drama because people are too tired & overreached - none of that! Being at the InterCon was probably the #1 factor in how seamless the day went because of their incredible service/staff & expertise. (#2 factor being the excellence of the other vendors, & #3 being my own quirky penchant for detailed planning + a dose of luck.) The evening of, Kristen kept everything running so smoothly - she was such a warm person that she might as well have fit right in as one of our honored guests! She had the perfect amount of communication that kept us on track so that the service staff and vendors could deliver a first-rate experience to our friends & family. 10/10 would do it all again at the InterCon, & I recommend it to anyone seeking a downtown Chicago venue!

    Sexy Chic Intercontinental Reception

    Having our wedding reception at The Intercontinental Chicago was an absolute dream! From start to finish, working with Tara and her team was flawless. From walk through's to menu tastings to the many questions/requests a bride has, Tara’s attentiveness, dedication, and passion for her industry never faltered as she went above and beyond! Our guests had only positive things to say about their rooms in our wedding block and the dreamy Penthouse Bridal Suite is STILL being talked about by my entire bridal party. Our reception couldn’t have gone any smoother or been more jaw-droppingly beautiful. The Renaissance Ballroom and Tara will forever hold a special place in my heart.

    Amazing and magical

    We looked at probably 9 different venues in 7 days both in the suburbs and downtown Chicago. This was too much. The moment we walked into the InterContinental, I knew something was special about this venue. As we checked in with the concierge to meet our tour guide for the day, the bellmen were telling us how beautiful weddings are at this venue and how everyone has such an amazing time and is happy having their weddings there! This was a good sign. Then, it was time for us to meet the catering sales manager who showed us around the venue. From the moment I met Tara Hubbard, I knew I not only wanted to work with her, but I wanted to be her friend! She was so kind and generous with us and helped us finalize every single detail for our wedding in the Grand Ballroom. During wedding weekend, everything the InterContinental did to help us was perfect!!! The suite we stayed in was INCREDIBLE, the staff was AMAZING and we took the most amazing pictures here. You cannot go wrong with choosing this venue!!
