    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.

    The Wyndham Grand staff helped make our wedding weekend an amazing experience! The hotel and terrace were beautiful...located right by the river walk and the terrace had 39th floor views of the entire downtown skyline and river. We couldn't have been happier we made the choice to have our ceremony there!
