The Sofitel Chicago Water Tower is a striking addition to the architectural landscape of the city. Designed by award-winning, Paris-based architect Jean-Paul Viguier, the stunning 350,000-square-foot, prism-shaped structure features 32 floors, each with a spectacular view of the Chicago skyline on Lake Michigan. The Grand Ballroom is contemporary in design with a sloped ceiling, vibrant colors and floor to ceiling dramatic windows. The foyer space offers an abundance of natural light and is very spacious showcasing the green translucent staircase. Weddings at the Sofitel Chicago Water Tower are handled with an eye towards visual artistry while still focusing on the experience. Service is "wave style" meaning that a server hand delivers every guest their meal directly from the kitchen. Read less

We had our wedding ceremony and reception at the Sofitel Chicago in August 2014. The wedding package was competitive and the food selection was excellent. The location of the hotel was just perfect for our many out of town guests to enjoy the Gold Coast neighborhood and Michigan Avenue. The hotel's ballroom was plain and needed quite a bit of decor but the windows in the room make it special. The hotel truly shines with the quality of service by my event manager (Ian Preston) and his entire team. They were very attentive to our requirements and made our wedding day flawless.

My husband and I searched for a venue from November 2011 - February 2012. Nothing quite suited our needs or wants until we walked by the Sofitel. At first, I did not plan on having a hotel wedding, but the Sofitel is stunning. With a majority of our guests coming in from out of town, it was also nice to have everything in one place. At every other hotel we had visited, the reception room felt a little closed off with no windows. The reception room at the Sofitel is stunning. The staff at Sofitel truly take care of you your entire wedding weekend. Not to mention the food is exceptional, not your usual "wedding" food. Every aspect of our wedding at the Sofitel was perfect.

We had our wedding ceremony and reception at this hotel and it was amazing. The quality of service and food was outstanding for the price. The entire hotel and staff were very accomadating and went above and beyond in providing excellent service. We had 45 rooms in our hotel block and our guests were very happy. Michelle was fantastic and always helpful. The chefs made delicious food and made a last minute cake for us when our bakery didn't deliver ours. I would highly recommend this venue for a beautiful memorable day

We held our reception at the Sofitel and it turned out absolutely amazing. I give them 5 stars in all categories except for responsiveness and quality of service. I'm only doing this for two reasons:
1. Our wedding date was double booked. Luckily we had booked our intended April 17th 2010 wedding date in March of 2009, and they caught the mistake in late April. I was furious, but they did give us a lot of consessions, and the May date worked out just fine.
2. The truffled potatoes side dish that we ate in our tasting that I absolutely fell in love with, were not at all the potoes that were served at the wedding. Of all things that could have gone wrong on the day of the wedding, this wasn't a huge deal and something only I noticed. The rest of the food was so great, people still comment on it.
Other than these two hickups, we loved everything else about the Sofitel. The room was stunning, our suite was amazing, and the service was great. The Sofitel had the ideal modern feel that we were looking for, and it turned out just how we wanted. I wouldn't change anything (other than the potatoes).

Michelle Willey at the Sofitel could not have been more lovely and helpful during our wedding, from planning to tasting to the big day! Everything was pulled off seamlessly, our families absolutely adored the guest rooms, and the ceremony and reception exceeded our wildest dreams. Oh, and the cuisine was to-die-for! Highly recommended.
