    The PERFECT Wedding Venue, Best Value & Service

    The Westin Chicago Northwest was the perfect place to hold our wedding reception. Not only is it beautiful inside the lobby and Lakeside Pavilion, but it was surprisingly affordable. An incredible value, considering all that is included. Purchasing a package was a life-saver, especially with a short engagement. The package includes just about everything -- room, linens, cake, chairs, food, a bar, planning services via a coordinator, who worked with us from day one. Aileen was amazing, very flexible and quick to respond. Definitely give it a visit!

    Westin Chicago Northwest's reply:

    Thank you so much for the kinds words Lea, it was a pleasure working with you and we wish both you and Luke the absolute best life has to offer!!

    Perfect Wedding Location

    We lucked into finding this venue after having to find a new location for our wedding 2 weeks before our date! All I can say is things really do happen fora a reason. Everything was PERFECT. Aileen was wonderful to work with- she knows her stuff! The staff was so friendly and the food was top notch.... everyone is still raving about how good it was! We couldn't have been happier with how everything turned out.

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!
