So I'm partial because it was my own wedding, but the place was fantastic. I can honestly say I walked into the hotel the day of the wedding without a care in the world. I felt so confident that they had everything under control and would take care of everything, and they did not disappoint. Everything was perfect, and every guest has mentioned how spectacular the food was. Best wedding food ever. It was costly, but if you can afford it, it's worth every penny

The wedding contact from the Softiel is Michelle. She is amazing and was so helpful with any questions and requests. The grand ballroom is the perfect setting for any chic city wedding!

Everything was wonderful--food, ambiance, space; plus Michelle, our Sofitel coordinator, was on top of things, very honest and helpful from day one. Everything went without a glitch.

That's the Sofitel's motto and they definitely hold true to it! I held my wedding ceremony and reception there a couple weeks ago and every single detail about the planning experience and the wedding was amazing and top notch. Because of the highly organized event staff I was able to plan an entire wedding in 3 months that was absolutely perfect! The entire staff was such a pleasure to work with and the service provided was exceptional. We had many out of town guests stay at the hotel for the weekend and everyone was impressed by their entire experience with their stay and the wedding itself. The hotel is also in a perfect location for out of town guests who want to see the city. The food was definitey a big hit, as well. It was 5 star quality as far as taste and presentation go. The event space was also set up absolutely beautifully, too. The entire wedding was even more than I could have hoped for and I would recommend this venue for anyone who wants a high class, elegant city wedding. I give the Sofitel 5 stars plus!!!
Contemporary. Urban. Sophisticated.
The Grand Ballroom is contemporary in design with a sloped ceiling, vibrant colors and floor-to-ceiling dramatic windows. Weddings at the Sofitel Chicago Water Tower are handled with an eye towards visual artistry while still focusing on the spectacular experience.
