Mariya is best! She is very professional and helpful! Always so quick for the response to your email, message, phone call. We cannot make the wedding happen without her help.
The price is very good, especially among the rich Northshore neighborhood.
We had the cocktail party and the reception in seperate room, which having people on the eight floor with petio for the cocktail, and first floor big ballroom for the reception, which is awesome! Thanks Mariya again for making this hapeen.
Even the preparing room for our bridal party are so nice , high end.
The cake included is very delicious and pretty. Ps, Oak Mill is the bakery vendor.
One thing want to point out. The food is not that perfect. When we did the tasting, the beef is over cooked; so we asked it medium. But on the wedding day, it was too raw. That is the only thing not that perfect. I understand it's hard to make dinner for so many people all together. May need more communicating with the Chef.
Overall, our wedding is amazing. :)

Once we saw Renaissance Chicago North Shore Hotel for the first time, we knew the search for our wedding reception venue was over!

My now, husband and I planned to get married 4-5 months after the first time we visited Renaissance. Our contact was Mariya who we communicated with over e-mail, as I was still living in Canada at the time. We were able to meet Mariya in March 2016 and she was a pleasure to work with, welcomed all our questions and concerns and was very understanding that my family and in-laws were out of towners, only my then, fiance, lived in the area. Mariya was very punctual and detailed in her responses as most of the communication was done on email and phone.

It helped that Renaissance had many contacts for the cake, table decor, photobooth, which made it so much easier with the planning process!

We loved Renaissance, some advantages and highlights we found:
- Modern design and classy atmosphere
- Uplighting available
- Beautiful ballroom
- Room blocks for guests
- Ample parking
- Delicious variety of food
- Getting ready rooms for bridal party
- Complimentary suite for bride and groom and much more!

Now, 5 months later, our family and guests continue to share with us how much they enjoyed our reception venue and how friendly all the staff were!

Thankful for Mariya who was always so patient with us and always had a smile on her face!
Bill in the lobby was very friendly and always welcoming! By the first day we met, he already knew us on a first-name basis! We could not have had a better team, Mariya and staff, helping us and our reception looked more beautiful than we ever imagined!

Mariya and the staff at the Renaissance were wonderful. They had great ideas and everything about our reception was beautiful. The small details they recommended really brought everything together. We got so many compliments on how delicious the food was and how beautiful the room looked. Each person we worked with to plan the day was responsive and helpful. Our day was perfect from start to finish. I would recommend this venue to anyone looking for a wedding location in the northern suburbs.

I can not rave enough about the Renaissance North Shore and Jeaneatte Ocampo. I visited many venues before choosing the Renaissance and none compared in value. Jeanette was great to work with and very responsive. You could tell she truly cared about how well my day would go. She was there for every step of the process. We chose stations instead of a plated meal (mashedpotatoes, carving, pasta, fiesta, and ice cream sundae). Our guests were raving about the food and the experience. They said it was some of the best food they ever had let alone best wedding food. It was absolutely delicious. The staff was hospitable and kind the entire night. The room (The Northbrook Ballroom) was gorgeous and just as I had envisioned it. When looking for a venue no other place provided a as large or a cocktail area and ballroom. My husband and I do not drink and Jeanette was willing to work with this unique aspect to our reception, which many venues turned us down because of. She helped us create a perfect evening that we will remember for the rest of our lives. Thank you so much Jeanette!

UNBELIEVABLY AMAZING-does not even begin to describe how incredible this venue is. When my husband and I began to look at venues-we knew that we needed to be semi-flexible on location because we wanted a very high end wedding and was not sure that we could do everything we wanted with a city address, so we ventured out to suburbs. From the moment we stepped into the Renaissance, we may have been in Northbrook, but it did not look or feel that way inside of the hotel. The hotel was recently remodeled and to say it looks like a downtown hotel does not give it justice-it is classy, beautiful, elegant and everything you would want to have for your wedding.
We met with Kristin-who I can honestly say is the most attentive, responsible, helpful-Wedding Manager, I have ever worked with. Kristin was with us from our first visit to the hotel up to the last plate being cleared during dinner. Kristin & I spoke on an almost daily basis not just about the logistics about the wedding at the Renaissance, but Kristin went above and beyond and contacted our other vendors about their logistics/needs. You have heard horror stories about vendors not working together-because of Kristin we never had that.
Everything was just so perfect-the room, lighting, cocktail hour our get ready rooms everything! There was not a single request or ask that we had that wasn't left with a YES response-Kristin & her team worked tirelessly to truly make this the best day of our lives. On the arrival of our wedding weekend, my husband and I felt like celebrities, everyone at the hotel from the front desk team, to our banquet manager, and the house cleaning service all made us feel like family. The true test to an establishment is when you come back after your event and to see how you were treated-we were back at the Renaissance on our one month and the restaurant staff remembered who we were and told us how beautiful our wedding was. If you are still looking--RUN--to the Renaissance North Shore!!

We held both our ceremony and reception in the Northbrook Ballroom. The space is absolutely beautiful and the staff is fantastic! We worked with Kristin to make our day everything that we wanted. We love Kristin. She was on top of everything and she made planning our wedding from out of state a breeze. The banquet staff was also wonderful. They really helped to make our day a hit with our guests. The food was amazing (our guests are still talking about it 3 months later). At one point in the night I even saw the bartender dancing to the music. The staff really made us feel like we were at home, and that made the day that much better. THANK YOU!

We LOVED every single about this venue, and we loved working with the wedding department! Kristin was incredible beyond words---unfortunately now she no longer works there, and when we went to go back and stay at the hotel you could tell that things had definitely changed. We have not interacted with the bridal department since our wedding so maybe things are still just as amazing, I would just make sure you know what you want and what you can see in your vision!

Let me start off by saying that I loved my wedding..I loved the way the Renaissance looked. The food was great.

It was just the planning part. I had a few issues with the person that I dealt with but she was quick to fix them. However, I felt like at times she had no idea of what we talked about before and maybe was not very detail oriented.

Overall, great hotel, great reception. I would recommend if you have patients leading up to your event.
