    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—so much so that there were a few bookings that happened during dinner. Keeping the Allegro’s bar open late was a hit with our guests, who were able to continue celebrating and enjoying one another’s company until early morning.

    Since our wedding, the complements to the Allegro venue and staff haven’t 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’s 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’s 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.

    A perfect reception!

    Alyssa, Paige and the rest of the Allegro team were wonderful to work with. One of the main reasons we wanted to have a hotel for our reception venue was for the convenience - both for our guests and ourselves planning the wedding - and Hotel Allegro did not disappoint. We secured our date about 14 months in advance. Alyssa and Paige always responded quickly throughout the planning process. All of the food was incredible, and the entrees were very generous portion sizes. We rented the Starlet hospitality suite for the bridal party to get ready in and for a Sunday coffee & pastries farewell which worked out wonderfully. The ballroom was a perfect space for our reception (we had about 140 people), and it is a beautiful space event without adding much extra decor to it.

The Allegro is an amazing space! KT and the team there are the best in the business and an absolute pleasure to work with. I'm a band leader and work at all the main venues in Chicagoland. The Allegro has great acoustics which makes the music feel clear and powerful and that translates to a packed dance floor with everyone having the time of their life! I highly recommend calling KT and having your event at the Hotel Allegro! Jeff Stitely
