We worked with Samantha Bauman as our coordinator at the Westin. She was a true delight to work with. She was very professional, always responded to emails, questions, etc. If you had a questions she had an answer. Always was prepared for meeting sessions, food tasting, final walkthrough and event day. My Bride and I finished up pictures on the grounds and walked into the reception(Pavilion) to get our first look. Sam was at the door to greet us and had some of our passed hor'dourves waiting for us along with a cocktail. She asked us to take a look to make sure everything was as we wanted it and asked if we needed any changes made or had any other issues.. Working with Sam and the Westin was exactly how we pictured our wedding and really made all the difference in knowing that everything was taken care of. I highly recommend Samantha and the Westin for anyone who wants to have their wedding there.

Having our wedding at the Westin Chicago Northwest in Itasca was the best decision we've made throughout our entire planning process. Let us first start by complementing how helpful Samantha and her staff were since day 1. They were quick to respond with any questions or concerns I had and were always willing to accommodate our needs so that we were completely comfortable and satisfied. We cannot forget about how polite and attentive the staff was the day of our wedding! Everyone was so nice (including the front desk) and willing to help out with whatever we needed. Our wedding was the an unforgettable day, but having it at the Westin Chicago Northwest made it so much more meaningful! Thank you so much!!!

I worked with Samantha Bauman for my Sons wedding which was held on March 28th, 2015 at the Westin Chicago Northwest.
We held the wedding at the Lakeside Pavilion. It was a perfect wedding in all areas.
The service was excellent, the room was beautiful and the food was outstanding.
Samantha kept everything very organized , and on the day of the wedding was there to make sure everything was perfect, which it was.
Family and friends could not say enough about how impressed they were, and it was one of the nicest Weddings they had even been to.

My husband and I had the incredible pleasure of working with Samantha as our wedding planner, and simply put- she is the best. She was extremely responsive, every silly or important questions that I asked, she got me an answer within a day. It was so helpful, as planning a wedding is stressful enough, she made the process that much easier, truly could not have done it without her! She orchestrated everything and was at the reception the day of the wedding to make sure that everything went off without a hitch. One tiny little hiccup, and she had it fixed in a heartbeat. Everything turned out absolutely beautiful, she coordinated with our florist, DJ, and the linen vendor to make sure everyone was on the same page. You can tell she knows her stuff, and I can't rave about her enough. I only got married a few weeks ago, and have already had several friends tell me how beautiful the venue was that that's where they want to get married! It truly was a perfect evening, and the Westin pavilion is a gorgeous venue, my only complaint is I wish it didn't go by so fast!

I am so happy I chose to have my wedding at the Westin! I saw probably 13 different venues before we made our decision, and before we even walked in the door we knew it was THE place. First of all, it is beautiful and perfect looking and could hold our huge wedding without feeling crammed. We booked with Samantha and began the planning process. I did not have a wedding planner so at times it was stressful. However Samantha was very quick to respond to my emails/questions whenever I had any and always had AWESOME recommendations for other vendors. Besides the fact that I didn't have an actual planner, I am not a person that had "a vision" of what I always imagined my wedding day to be, so I put a lot of faith into those that were helping me. Samantha and Patti from MDM Entertainment (the vendor Samantha recommended for DJ/decor) put together the most gorgeous room!! We were in shock when we saw how gorgeous the Grand Ballroom was that day. It was awesome to have my 2 big vendors work so closely together! Besides how smoothly the night went, and how beautiful the room and hotel was, the food was outstanding!! My number one priority was the food and alcohol and the Westin did not disappoint! Overall, we had a perfect night and I would definitely recommend the Westin.

The tent at the Westin made the perfect most beautiful backdrop for our wedding. Everything from start to finish was perfect, Samantha the wedding consultant was always available and answered all my questions promptly. Samantha made our day so wonderful down to every detail. The food we choose (chicken with a cranberry stuffing and eggplant) was so good, guests continue to remark about their plates. My parents had an issue with their suite not being ready on time and it was difficult since the parents of the bride were entering people in between in their room, my father spoke with Samantha very nicely and she comped the room for the trouble. Down to every last detail our reception was the best time we ever had. All because we choose the perfect venue that happened to come with amazingly talented people who enjoy their work and care about you wedding being perfect. Thank you Samantha!

We held our daughter’s wedding ceremony and reception at the Westin Hotel last month. Every moment, every last detail exceeded our high expectations. Our catering manager Samantha was beyond wonderful. The Lakeside Pavilion was gorgeous, the food was delicious, the cake was sensational, the service was attentive. Sam worked with us throughout the planning process to guide us to the perfect wedding. Her keen knowledge, patience and attention to detail made our special day a dream come true. The accommodations for our overnight guests were wonderful, and the Front Desk staff very accommodating. Bride, Groom and Parents could not have been happier.
