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!
