If you are looking for a venue with a wow factor that will have your guests talking, this is the venue. Not only is it mind blowingly gorgeous, but they are accommodating, professional, and the food is to die for. We had the best night of our lives dancing away on the light up dance floor, and got so many compliments about how gorgeous the room was. Would do it again over and over. Thank you Justin!

The Millennium Knickerbocker was everything we could have ever asked for and more. It was elegant, lively and the staff was unbelievably accommodating. When we were considering where to have our reception, we were really looking for a space that would make us and our guests feel special. At the Knickerbocker, the whole weekend is about you, your guests, and your wedding. It is not like other venues that have numerous events and weddings going on at the same time. All of the staff members know who you are and are there to make sure your entire weekend is a success. My mom and I delivered over 20 boxes with items to decorate the bathrooms, set up displays, and personalize the space. We fully expected to do the set up, but Justin, Luis and their team took care of everything.

The Knickerbocker also knows how to put on a show. As my guests entered the Crystal Ballroom, their jaws literally dropped. It is such an impressive space! Thank you (especially Justin and Luis) for making the weekend an unbelievable success. Your staff put so much care into numerous little touches - they were noticed and greatly appreciated!

I cannot say enough good about the Millennium. The aestetics of the Crystal Ballroom when it is decorated, the lights are low the candles lit, the white curtains behind the stage hung doesn't hold a stick to any other wedding venue we've ever attended.

I really can't say enough about how amazing the service and overall experience of our Knickerbocker wedding day was. The room was gorgeous, the food was delicious and served on time, and the entire staff was so eager to help and so friendly to all the guests, i couldn't be more grateful. Louis is my favorite person ever. He really takes pride in his role and wants to make your day perfect. Everyone worked so hard to make things go smoothly and to keep things fun and easy for our guests. I will never ever forget how amazing our reception was because of the Knickerbocker staff!

If you are going to get married in Chicago, do it here. The room is beautiful, the food is exceptional, and there is a light-up dance floor. Everything was seamless, from the beginning of our cocktail hour to our check out the next day. Lauren S. in catering was amazing--she is extremely organized, helpful, and made sure that everything was perfect.

This venue knows how to do weddings. The biggest surprise was the high quality of the food. When we arrived for our tasting, we expected the food would be good - but we did have the usual expectations of "wedding food". The food was outstanding! We had guests complimenting the food all night. (particularly the portobello mushroom starter and filet mignon entree) How is it possible to perfectly cook 125+ steaks medium-rare, allow remaining guests a choice of two other entrees, plus cater to a gluten-free guest and two kids meals - one of which only eats pasta???!! Who knows - but thanks to the Knickerbocker staff and the head waiter, Louis, the dinner ran like a dream. The staff provided a white glove service which also added an elegant touch. The ballroom was beautiful, truly old-fashioned/old-world with an interesting history. This was important to us as we spun a 1920s theme into our reception by throwing a surprise masked ball (the masks were underneath the tables). We were extremely impressed with Lauren, who was in charge of our wedding reception. She was hip and highly professional and never batted an eye when we announced we wanted three entrees, assigned seating, a slower than normal served dinner, masks underneath the tables ...she made it happen. She was also very easy to get in touch with and ask questions leading up to the wedding day. We also booked a room block for out of town guests as were told the hotel would be fully renovated at that time. The price was good for our guests, but unfortunately the renovation did not take place. This was the only let-down as some rooms were great but others in need of refurbishment and the four star rating was a stretch for those rooms...a bit too shabby chic. I'm highly critical of venues, dining, customer service, etc and I would strongly recommend the Knickerbocker for a wedding - after shopping around in Chicago they are the best of the best.

Cannot say enough good about the Knickerbocker. They went above and beyond to see that every detail of our wedding was went off without a hitch. The aestetics of the Crystal Ballroom when it is decorated, the lights are low the candles lit, the white curtains behind the stage hung doesn't hold a stick to any other wedding venue we've ever attended. The food was the best wedding food anyone we spoke with had ever experienced. The steaks cooked perfectly, the soup flavored delicately and the service was second to none. We had a wedding planner. We're so sorry we did that as Victor from the hotel was all that anyone really needs. They knew our needs before we did, they knew us by name (all of the staff, that is) and they anticipated our needs with great care and graciousness. Book your event here for a memory that will make you proud you did.

Our wedding was everything we hoped for! The venue was stunning, the ceremony was lovely & the staff seamlessly flipped everything for the reception. The light-up dance floor was awesome & our guests were dancing all night. The food was great, service was very friendly, and the atmosphere is one-of-a-kind. We worked with Mark Johnson all the way from viewing the venue to the night of the wedding - he was extremely responsive, helpful, and accommodating.

It costs a pretty penny, especially the food/drink options, but if you've got it (or someone who loves you does), I highly recommending spending your money here. We had a truly unforgettable experience.
