    Beautiful views and amazing service.

    I hosted my wedding here 6/22/19 - it was absolutely spectacular. The views on the 39th floor are some of the best in the city and provide for such a romantic setting. The staff here is so friendly and willing to work with you. I originally worked with someone who stepped down from their position about a month or two before my wedding, but I had zero concerns because Erin Ruff (event coordinator) stepped in and took over. I had all the confidence in the world with her and she exceeded my needs. She is super friendly, relaxed, and knows the ins and outs of the hotel. My wedding would not have been as perfect without her - she is a miracle worker.

    The food is also delicious! I enjoyed everything we picked out and so did our guests. Everyone left full and ready to dance and drink. The food options are so great and a wide variety to pick from - my now husband and I thoroughly enjoyed their tasting event.

    I will be honest, there were one or two room issues for my guests that occurred, but the Wyndham worked hard to rectify the situation and am very grateful for it.

    I know Chicago has so many amazing locations to get married at....but this place really knocks it out of the park. The location, views, food, and service really make this place one of a kind and I would recommend this place to everyone!!!

    Grand Experience at the Wyndham Grand

    My son and new daughter-in-law were married in Chicago on October 13th, 2018. My wife and I hosted a 62 person rehearsal dinner and 150+ person welcome reception the night before in the 39th floor penthouse at the Wyndham grand. Everything about the experience exceeded our expectations. Catering sales manager Erin Ruff took care of everything from start to finish. She personally took us on the initial tour of this amazing venue, organized a food and wine tasting event that was almost as much fun as the actual event and personally stayed well into the evening on the night of the event to make sure everything went off without a hitch. She made last-minute adjustments to accommodate some changes we didn't anticipate, without batting an eye. She is a total pro and extremely personable and kind on top of that. I can't imagine there is a better venue in the city. The inside and outside views from the penthouse and Terrace were incredible. All of our guests were highly impressed. The food and bar service was perfect. Audiovisual and other special requests were completely taken care of without issue. We would highly recommend others needing such a venue, to strongly consider this space (and particularly the people) at the Wyndham Grand for your event.
