We used the Westin for ceremony, Reception and for guests to stay over. They were flexible to meet our demands and it's beautiful there. We got married outside and had our reception inside the Lakeside pavilion tent. I am super pleased and would refer people there any time. The food was awesome and we got so many compliments. Sam was our wedding coordinator and she was very nice and helpful and answered all of our questions. I can't say enough good things!!

After thoroughly searching Chicagoland, we are very pleased to report of our exceptional wedding reception experience at the Westin in Itasca, IL (centrally located and near O’Hare) this month for our oldest daughter and son-in-law. Literally “from soup (the best ever) to nuts” (wedding cake) and all the courses in-between, the food was delicious, and the drinks were plentiful - with prompt, pleasant and professional service … almost doting! The pavilion and dance floor were comfortable and beautiful, as was the cocktail hour lobby and outdoor veranda, pond and fountain; and they provided spotlessly clean and nearby bathrooms for our guests’ convenience. The hotel rooms are top-drawer and an unbelievable value on a weekend. We continue to receive countless compliments from our family and friends on the entire venue experience which exceeded our lofty expectations. Extra special kudos to the doorman/valet Ben, (female) Sam at the front desk, MaryAnn the evening manager, and Samantha Bauman the wedding catering Manager!

The Westin Chicago Northwest is a great place to celebrate your wedding. In June 2012, my husband and I had our ceremony, reception and Sunday brunch at the Westin Chicago Northwest and our wedding went off flawlessly—it was everything we wanted it to be and more! We received so many compliments from our guests about the food (how delicious it was), the accommodations (how nice the rooms, pool, and path around the lake were), the attentive hotel service, as well as how beautiful our ceremony and reception location was (we had ours in the lakeside pavilion). The Westin’s wedding coordinator (Susan) is also great to work with and paid excellent attention to the details of our wedding weekend. She was able to accommodate all our special requests even when several of them were last minute. Overall, we are very glad we chose the Westin over other venues we looked at for our wedding. We, along with our families and guests, were very pleased with how everything turned out and have only happy memories from our wedding weekend!

We had our big day at the Westin Chicago NW on July 21st, 2012 and everything was just amazing. Our Event Manager Aileen Mckellar was very good to us and very helpful right from the beginning. Considering the fact that we had only a month to plan our whole wedding all our transactions with Westin went in very smoothly. I always emailed Aileen of any changes during the one month and it was taken care of immediately. All the charges were clearly mentioned in the contract and there were no hidden or extra costs. A special mention about Swank Audio Visuals at the Westin. They did an amazing job with the lighting. All the tables and settings were done exactly as mentioned earlier. All the staff at the wedding was extremely supportive and wonderful. We were a bit doubtful as the Gallery ballroom did not looked quite ordinary when we visited first, nevertheless the staff did an amazing job of trasforming the Gallary Ballroom to a wonderful ballroom for our reception. We are very happy that we chose Westin Chicago NorthWest for our big day!
