Best Wedding Venue
We are so pleased with our experience having our wedding at the Westin! From our first tour to the wedding night every planning appointment was so easy and working with Monica was a dream. We had our reception in the tent and the ceremony and cocktail hour were held outside. The grounds of the hotel are beautiful and were the prefect backdrop to have the outdoor parts of our evening. There were so many awesome locations to take photos at, making the evening so seamless because we didn't need to travel anywhere else to have great photo spots. The food and drinks were amazing. The bartenders were great and handled our guests efficiently. The food was to die for. I know everyone tries to brag about their wedding food when most wedding food is not good, but I cannot emphasize enough how delicious the wedding food was. We have had SO many compliments on the food. Everything was cooked perfectly and I would return to this location just to have that meal again. The hotel room block was also very accommodating and we have had no complaints from any of our guests about their rooms. We had a lot of people stay the night and everyone was very happy with their experience. Another bonus with this venue is that they offered a location for us to have an after party after our reception ended. This was an awesome way for our guests to continue to party but in a more relaxed setting and this actually gave us (bride and groom) time to socialize after dancing for literally the entire night. And by having a separate space for that we didn't have to do this in our hotel room like I have seen at other weddings we have attended. Overall would 100% pick this venue again and would recommend it to everyone!Sent on 06/20/2019

I would HIGHLY recommend this venue to everyone. We worked with Aileen who was very sweet, thorough, organized, and helpful. She gave us advice while planning and would fulfill our requests. We had a little obstacle in the final stage when people were unable to get a hotel room within our wedding block, but once we notified her she took care of it. I could go on and on about how wonderful this venue was. Our guests said they felt like they weren't in Illinois and that the hotel and surrounding landscape was beautiful. Also the food was raved about by everyone! Outstanding venue!!!Sent on 07/30/2019

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!
