Experienced team that knows their South Asian Weddings
The guest rooms and suites were very spacious.
Unfortunately, about 50% of our guest's rooms lost AC on Thursday and Friday, which was not ideal. However, the Westin was able to give us a 50% refund on those nights which was appreciated, and they were able to process the refund within two days of our wedding.
The Westin was a fantastic venue for our South Asian wedding, their staff is knowledgeable and professional.

We absolutely love working here. It is beautiful and the staff is always great to work with. We can't say enough good things about this place.
We absolutely love Aileen and her whole team at the beautiful Westin Chicago Northwest! We have had the pleasure of doing events and weddings for several years with them and their quality, professionalism, and attention to detail is top notch. We love that Aileen and her team really care about the people they work with and they go the extra mile to treat their fellow vendors as guests. They are accommodating, flexible, creative, and knowledgeable. And, their Lakeside Pavilion and outdoor patio is second to none in the city! We highly recommend them!
What a wonderful venue! And the staff are so easy to work with!
