Westin was a great event space to work with! The Pavillion is absolutely beautiful that we decided to use it for the reception as well. The terrace was used for our cocktail hour at sunset and it was a hit! The staff and coordinators at the Westin are extremely accommodating and helpful! It was an absolute pleasure working with them! We can't say enough great things about the Westin! It's a definite must see when searching for a venue.

The Westin Chicago Northwest was the best possible location we could have chosen for our wedding reception. Our contact switched a few months prior to the wedding, and I could not have been happier with the service and quality we received from Amanda as she was adjusting to the position. She was able to answer all my questions quickly, and thoroughly went through the details of our contract making sure everything was ready for the big day. The day of the wedding, our guests enjoyed the lobby bar prior to the cocktail hour as well as the convenience of the hotel right there for post-wedding. We were able to rent a room for an "after-party" that was stocked with water and tables/chairs for our guests to continue hanging out! Amanda made sure that things ran smoothly and followed up with me a couple times during the day to make sure everything was running well - she was absolutely amazing to work with. Our reception was held in the tent, and we enjoyed the look of the tent and the unique option - everything was elegant, and the Westin staff did an excellent job setting up the decorations we provided to look amazing! The food was delicious, and I have heard nothing but great feedback about the dinner, appetizers, and venue in general. Would recommend this location to anyone!

We recently held my daughters wedding at the Westin. It was a great decision. We had the ceremony on the lawn, cocktails on the Terrace, and the reception in the Pavillion. It was described by our guests as "magical", "a fairy tale setting". The food was delicious, from appetizers to dessert, we had many compliments. Aileen was our coordinator. She was a joy to work with. Any of our requests were met quickly and pleasantly. Mary Ann was the person in charge of the dining room. We could not have been in better hands. She kept everything running smoothly and was very attentive to all of our needs. From our first encounter over one year ago, until check out 2 days after the wedding, everyone we dealt with at the Westin was gracious and accommodating. We would highly recommend the Westin to anyone planning a wedding or other special event.

We had the pleasure of working with Aileen at the Westin and she was amazing! We do not live in Chicago so all of our wedding planning was long distance, but we always felt at ease when we were planning with Aileen. We had an Indian wedding, so there were multiple events to plan and a lot of out of town guests to accommodate. Aileen was super organized and very knowledgable about special requirements we had for our Hindu ceremony. On the big day everything was perfect! We had our wedding in the pavilion and it was beautiful. The service was excellent and our friends and family were all impressed with how organized everything was and how smoothly the day went. We loved our experience at the Westin!!

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!!!
