Amazing venue and team!

We had our wedding (ceremony & reception) in the Burnham Ballroom at the JW Marriott and were beyond impressed with every aspect of our experience. The team was a pleasure to work with and met every request with a smile. Our guests were blown away by the grandeur of the room and how the Marriott team was able to transform the space between the ceremony & reception (special thank you to the Encore team for making the room beautiful with ceiling lighting!). Chrissy was our event manager and was always available to answer any questions we had leading up to the event, and during the festivities as well. Our guests continue to rave about the food, and how quick the waiter service was - they really helped keep the event on track! On top of all of that, the hotel rooms were stunning, and the JW team accommodated our need for a bigger bridal suite. We can’t thank everyone enough for making our day so special.

Amazing Wedding Hotel Room Block

When looking for hotels for our wedding guests in downtown Chicago, we knew the options were almost endless. But when the search began, the place that stood out to us was the JW Marriott. From the attentiveness of our assigned coordinator, Rubi, to the room block manager, Austin, everything was so easy. They made sure all of our guests felt cared for with the room block custom URL that made booking hotel rooms under the block extremely quick and easy, and even went to the length to memorize the names of the parents of the bride and groom and the entire bridal party. I can not say enough wonderful things about this exquisite hotel. To my wife and I, it feels a little bit like home now. We will be staying here for all our Chicago hotel needs.

I hosted my wedding hotel block at the JW Marriott Chicago and was thrilled with how beautiful and convenient the hotel was for our guests. The lobby and bar area were a wonderful place for our guests to spend time together, and the bar/restaurant had great food and drinks. I was impressed by how helpful the staff was as well. I worked with Rachel to book the block and she was very easy to work with and very helpful. We agreed on a fair rate and my guests were very satisfied with the room rate based on the great location of the hotel and the high quality of the hotel. I especially loved the suite that my husband and I had. It was enormous, with gorgeous views of the city and an amazing bathroom. I would highly recommend this hotel to any Chicago bride!
