    Best Team Ever

    When my husband and I toured the Allegro for the first time, we were smitten. We wanted a venue that had personality, that felt uniquely Chicago, and just felt special. Check, check, check. But little did we know that the best part about the Allegro isn't even the venue itself (which, again, is amazing): it's the team they have in place there. Kim, our venue coordinator, was an absolute magic maker. She answered every single one of my (many) questions in the months and weeks and days and literally hours leading up to our wedding quickly and kindly and helpfully. She was there on the day making sure everything flowed smoothly. She thought to ask me things that I forgot to ask her about! As someone who decided to plan a wedding without a wedding planner, Kim put my mind at such ease. And don't forget about the rest of the team! Their chef, when we asked if they had a winter version of a spring/summer appetizer, said "no, but I'll make you one!" and it was one of our favorite things on the menu. And it had competition, because the food here is INCREDIBLE. And we actually got to taste everything, because Kim set aside a drink and appetizers for us in a private room after the ceremony! From the bar staff to the bellhop to the general manager, we were so well taken care of. Plus, being able to have our getting ready spaces, photos, ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception all under one roof in February was priceless. Oh, and our guests had a blast, too.

    I could go on and on about how grateful we are to have had our wedding at the Allegro, but I'll stop with this: if you're even thinking about it, start the conversation.

    Amazing venue and team!

    I cannot say enough good things about our experience working with Alyssa and Hotel Allegro. Simply put, I would not hesitate to recommend this Chicago venue to every- and anyone.

    For some context, my wife and I had our wedding February 2019. When we were looking for a venue, we wanted a location that would be able to accommodate about 150 guests and provide a historic-looking backdrop to our ceremony and reception. We also wanted the venue to be a one-stop shop for our guests who wanted to avoid the cold and provide a central location where they would either not need to go far to get what they needed (like coffee) or never leave the venue at all. Since we were planning everything ourselves, we also wanted to work with a venue that had our backs and could hold our hands through the planning process. The Allegro delivered.

    The venue was a perfect blend of historic and modern, which was as elegant as it was fun. For a winter wedding, the centralized location was perfect. All of our guests thoroughly enjoyed their experience鈥攕o much so that there were a few bookings that happened during dinner. Keeping the Allegro鈥檚 bar open late was a hit with our guests, who were able to continue celebrating and enjoying one another鈥檚 company until early morning.

    Since our wedding, the complements to the Allegro venue and staff haven鈥檛 stopped pouring in. Everything from ambiance to the evening dinner was picturesque. Many said that it was the best food they have ever had at a wedding.

    Lastly, the staff at the Allegro, especially Alyssa Alexander, our contact and coordinator, deserve the highest praise. Leading up to the wedding, each meeting with Alyssa was a breath of fresh air. Alyssa鈥檚 list of vendor recommendations allowed us to assemble the all-star team we wound up with for our wedding and her guidance throughout our planning process ensured that we both stayed on schedule and felt confident in our decisions. Any question we had was addressed quickly and thoughtfully.

    The day before and the day of our wedding, Alyssa made sure that we stayed grounded, stress-free, and confident that everything was being handled and handled well. Our vendor coordination was so smooth, we were never brought into it or were aware of any issues. Any time we reached out to Alyssa with an issue that popped up, she was there to take it off our hands. When the best man forgot the tie for his tux, Alyssa ran down the street to Macy鈥檚 to pick one up for him in time for our photos and ceremony.

    This is truly a five star venue with service that bests most, and we cannot recommend this venue more highly for an unforgettable Chicago wedding.

    Beautiful venue for a steal

    My husband and I got married at Hotel Allegro on 2/29/2020 and the venue and staff absolutely killed it. First of all, the hotel is so beautiful and right in the heart of the city. The accommodations for wedding room blocks are incredibly reasonably priced (a big part of what sold us) and compared to most venues we looked at in the city the costs associated with the space were much more appealing. Paige Leffert was our coordinator and she was easily the best and most impressive part of working with Hotel Allegro. She responded to my millions of emails leading up to the big day and was so focused on my husband and I having a special day while also executing all the details we wanted flawlessly. She made the day of so much less stressful because we knew everything was in good hands. Besides all this, the food was incredible (some of the best wedding food ever, according to a lot of our guests) and the ease of holding an event here was incredible. It's a beautiful spot for couples that want to have everything in one space and there's an awesome staff behind it to boot.

Hi!

I started with the hotel in the Fall of 2022 but come with 10+ years experience working in the world of weddings in Chicago! I love working with my wedding couples because it gives a level of emotion to my job that no corporate client can provide. Fun fact: I have teared up (okay - cired!) at every single one of my weddings. I believe in transparency and building an open and honest relationship with couples. Your wedding is SUCH an important day and it genuinely is such an honor when you choose me to help you celebrate!

I look forward to working with you!
