    Our experience working with this hotel was a wonderful one! We could not have been more pleased with our choice of venue. Everyone there was so helpful and eager to make this a wonderful event for us.....and that they did. We worked with Karyn Becker who was absolutely the best!! She made sure that everything was just perfect for our event from the beginning stages of planning to the final result. Choose this venue for your event without any hesitation. You will definitely be glad that you did!

    When I began planning my wedding the one word I used to describe what I wanted was elegance - The Westin Chicago North Shore delivers that and so much more. I had my ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception here. My guests loved that once they were here, they were here for the evening! We also utilized a room block which was another huge advantage.

    I worked with Jennifer Remington who is the most responsive and accommodating person I could have ever dreamed of when planning my wedding. There were days I'd email her 10 times a day and she would always respond extremely fast and she was always there for every single random question, change in plans, accommodation, worry or concern I had, simply ANYTHING. She was an absolute God sent.

    My guests were blown away by the class and elegance the Westin Chicago North Shore gives off. I also loved that everything is so clean and crisp with shining marble walls and neutral carpet - it's the perfect pallet to create your dream wedding.

    The staff on my wedding day was top notch. They didn't bother us, but still were attentive to make sure everything was going as we wanted. They also did an impeccable job of putting away our table frames, card cage, etc. Everything with such care and grace.

    Last but not least, this is an extremely honest and professional establishment. We had a guest cancel last min (she had a baby!) and when I notified Jennifer so that the table would be set with the correct number, she told me she'd credit me back those two plates. I didn't expect that, and it was such a wonderful gesture.

    Elegance, class, and WOW - that's what you'll get here. We became Starwood Preferred members and are now huge fans of this hotel family. The restaurants here are top notch too, made for a great gathering place with friends the night before the wedding. This is a place you can be proud to host your wedding . We felt like royalty and so did our guests. Thank you Thank you Thank you!!

    The Westin was amazing!!! After looking at my photos, I was even more impressed with the location.
    From the very begining, Susan was most helpful. I bombarded her with questions and she was very prompt getting back to me. When we had a bad experience with another service, she assured me that we would not have an experience like that the day of our wedding....and she was right. She was at our weddignn most of the evening, even reminding me that I should eat my dinner if I was going to plan on making it through the night.
    The tent was beautiful. The food was amazing. The service was impecable. The value so superb.
    We could not have asked for a better venue.
