My husband and I found this venue right when we were starting to get discouraged. We were immediately drawn in by Vickie Boysen's energy and professionalism (the event coordinator there). She went through a tour and the package info with us and we were pretty much sold right then! The value was amazing and the package is pretty inclusive which was realllly helpful for planning purposes. We also loved all of the "convenience factors" they had to offer for our guests. The venue was close to O'Hare -my husband and I had friends from med school flying in from literally all over the country; the convenient location and their complimentary shuttle made it possible for them to come which was huge for us. And we liked that everyone could easily just stay the night at the hotel and have fun, stay up late... not have to worry about getting a taxi or driving home. Added bonus- the lady you work through to book the room block, shuttle, etc is one of the sweetest people I've ever met (Bobbie).
Before the wedding night we thought the ballroom looked a little plain but when it was all done up with linens, lighting, flowers, etc... it looked amazing!!!! Completely transformed. The food was GREAT. We got so many compliments on the food. All of the staff was very friendly and pleasant. We were so very pleased with it all. As were my parents. My dad even thanked Vickie (event coordinator) in his speech because he knew how wonderful she had been to us and how much she had made my life/planning easier by being such a rockstar! If I could do it all over again I would have chose the exact same venue... from the food, to the cake, to the service, to the convenience, and especially the friendly/helpful staff members (this is HUGE when things get stressful)... we couldn't have asked for more!!!!!! 10 stars.

When my fiancé and I chose the Double Tree as our venue we liked the laid back atmosphere and their Birch Tree Grill Bar.
After booking, we ran into some issues with the Double Tree staff. The Double Tree went through three wedding planners during our engagement. This was very frustrating because information was not recorded and we had to keep repeating ourselves with each new wedding planner.
Once we finally settled in with Barbra, our planner, things started to look up.
Our wedding had tons of personal touches and the venue did a fantastic job decorating the space.
The only downfall during the wedding day was that another party was planned in another room which caused for a very crowded cocktail hour. If you are planning a large wedding (200+) make sure that you have the run of the house.
All in all, I was extremely pleased with the service on the days leading up to the wedding and the actual wedding day itself. I would recommend this venue to any bride looking for a cozy, laid back feel.

This hotel suite was absolutely worth the money! Bobbi was very helpful in planning our room blocks and all of our guests enjoyed their room. After the reception we had an after party in our room because it was so large! There was a living room with a bar area and bathroom in addition to the bedroom with a beautiful master bathroom with a shower as big as a small bedroom! Birch River Grill also served great food for our rehearsal dinner and breakfast. Do not hesitate to book your rooms here!

We used the DoubleTree Hotel for our ceremony site. They have an outdoor setting that overlooks this pond and fountain with trees providing shade. It was beautiful. The staff was helpful and made our wedding day stress free. We also stayed at this hotel and so did our guests. Great rooms, super comfortable beds and you get yummy cookies when you check-in. We were more than satisfied with the DoubleTree.

We got ready at this hotel in the honeymoon suite and on our wedding night, we stayed in the same suite. The manager, Bobbie, was so pleasant, kind and great to work with. I was so happy that I chose this hotel. I never had to worry about what was done for my guests because she took care of everything.
The staff was wonderful. The accomodations were new, clean and updated.
It was a great experience!!!

Gina was our coordinator and she bent over backwards for us. She was constantly communicating with us and helping with any wedding details that she could. She stayed within our budget and threw in "extras" to help make our day perfect. She even volunteered to run our rehearsal, Unfortunately Gina was unable to be at the actual wedding due ti her fiance returning from Afganistan, but she left us in the hands of Pete who took off running and did an amazing job.
One wedding at a time. Yours.
