I don't even know where to begin with the Westin. We got married on May 25, 2018. From start to finish, we had the BEST experience. Our coordinator was Sheree Slupski and we had our ceremony outside in front of the willow tree and our reception in the Lakeside Pavilion. I was impressed with the Westin from the minute we walked in and took our tour. It kind of worried me to book a wedding at a venue without tasting the food, but once we got to the tasting I was blown away. Every single thing was absolutely delicious and it made it hard to chose what we wanted to eat! Even on the day of the wedding I thought the food may not be as good since they make so much more at that point. I was wrong again, every person's steak was cooked perfectly and I got endless compliments on the food. My only regret is that I didn't finish my plate! The bakery they are connected with is also amazing. The cake tasted super fresh and moist on the day of the wedding. Sheree was super helpful throughout the entire process. As I am a wedding photographer myself, I am very particular and knew exactly how I wanted my day to run. She always answered my emails promptly and answered every question I asked (which was many!!). On the day of, we hit very few bumps in the road, all of which were taken care of by Sheree and the staff immediately. Somehow between the rehearsal and the reception, the selfie stick I had placed on a table next to our "selfie station" went missing. During dinner, Sheree drove to a nearby Walmart to buy a new one!! I was so impressed and grateful. Many of our family members told us how much they loved the staff and some of them even gave them tips they thought they were so great. I actually photographed a wedding there a few weeks after my own and some of the staff remembered me and asked how I was. It was so sweet! Bottom line: Definitely book at the Westin! It may seem pricey to some, but so much is included in their packages, it's well worth every penny!! :DSent on 06/21/2018

We had our son's wedding for about 350 people at the Westin, Northwest, Itasca Illinois. the hotel is large conveniently located close to the airport and the rooms are spacious. We has 5 events there over 3 days and we were extremely pleased. The wait staff was hard working and efficient. The best part of our wedding was our coordinator, Sheree. I could not have asked for a better person to work with! She is efficient, personable, reliable and responsive. She made it single handedly possible for me to plan this long distance!Sent on 09/02/2018

Although I'm not married yet, the process so far has been amazing! My fiancé and I are working with Amanda and couldn't be happier! She is very responsive with emails and answering any questions we have had. This venue is amazing because you're getting the space and a day of coordinator that you can talk to about everything. Also, they provide a website for room block information, ceremony/reception information, and you can have guests RSVP on this website. Before we booked this venue, Amanda met with us to show us the space, go over the details, and get to know us to capture our vision. She also showed us a reception space fully set up so we can have an idea of what everything will look like on our special day. I have stayed at this hotel many times and I've always been a great experience. They just finished redoing the whole place. The rooms are updated, each ballroom was updated, they have new restaurants, and the whole lobby is new. It looks beautiful! We're so excited to get married here! Because we haven't had our big day yet, I'll be back to update after the wedding! I would highly recommend this venue to anyone!

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!
