We had our son's wedding for about 350 people at the Westin, Northwest, Itasca Illinois. the hotel is large conveniently located close to the airport and the rooms are spacious. We has 5 events there over 3 days and we were extremely pleased. The wait staff was hard working and efficient. The best part of our wedding was our coordinator, Sheree. I could not have asked for a better person to work with! She is efficient, personable, reliable and responsive. She made it single handedly possible for me to plan this long distance!
Westin Chicago Northwest responded with the following comments:
Dear Meena, Thank you so much for sharing your experience with the Westin! I am honored to be part of such an important day. It was an honor working with you. Please come visit anytime you're in Chicago!! Thanks again, Sheree Slupski

Although I'm not married yet, the process so far has been amazing! My fiancé and I are working with Amanda and couldn't be happier! She is very responsive with emails and answering any questions we have had. This venue is amazing because you're getting the space and a day of coordinator that you can talk to about everything. Also, they provide a website for room block information, ceremony/reception information, and you can have guests RSVP on this website. Before we booked this venue, Amanda met with us to show us the space, go over the details, and get to know us to capture our vision. She also showed us a reception space fully set up so we can have an idea of what everything will look like on our special day. I have stayed at this hotel many times and I've always been a great experience. They just finished redoing the whole place. The rooms are updated, each ballroom was updated, they have new restaurants, and the whole lobby is new. It looks beautiful! We're so excited to get married here! Because we haven't had our big day yet, I'll be back to update after the wedding! I would highly recommend this venue to anyone!

I don't even know where to begin with the Westin. We got married on May 25, 2018. From start to finish, we had the BEST experience. Our coordinator was Sheree Slupski and we had our ceremony outside in front of the willow tree and our reception in the Lakeside Pavilion. I was impressed with the Westin from the minute we walked in and took our tour. It kind of worried me to book a wedding at a venue without tasting the food, but once we got to the tasting I was blown away. Every single thing was absolutely delicious and it made it hard to chose what we wanted to eat! Even on the day of the wedding I thought the food may not be as good since they make so much more at that point. I was wrong again, every person's steak was cooked perfectly and I got endless compliments on the food. My only regret is that I didn't finish my plate! The bakery they are connected with is also amazing. The cake tasted super fresh and moist on the day of the wedding. Sheree was super helpful throughout the entire process. As I am a wedding photographer myself, I am very particular and knew exactly how I wanted my day to run. She always answered my emails promptly and answered every question I asked (which was many!!). On the day of, we hit very few bumps in the road, all of which were taken care of by Sheree and the staff immediately. Somehow between the rehearsal and the reception, the selfie stick I had placed on a table next to our "selfie station" went missing. During dinner, Sheree drove to a nearby Walmart to buy a new one!! I was so impressed and grateful. Many of our family members told us how much they loved the staff and some of them even gave them tips they thought they were so great. I actually photographed a wedding there a few weeks after my own and some of the staff remembered me and asked how I was. It was so sweet! Bottom line: Definitely book at the Westin! It may seem pricey to some, but so much is included in their packages, it's well worth every penny!! :D

We had our ceremony and reception in the Pavilion (the beautiful four-season tent) at the Westin Northwest on April 21st 2018. With 50% of guests from out of town, we wanted to have all the wedding events in one location that was easy to access from the airport, nice enough for people to stay the weekend, and somewhere that fit with our budget. The Westin Northwest met all three criteria and was far and away the obvious choice! While I could probably ramble on a bit more, the most important thing (and the biggest compliment, in my opinion) was that having our wedding here was EASY. Monica (our dedicated coordinator) was so wonderful and responsive - she answered all our questions, made sure we we on top of our timelines, and helped us to pick and choose what things to put in our package in order to stay on top of our budget. Because of her work and planning, we were able to relax that day and enjoy our party. Thank you, thank you, thank you - we would do it all over again!

Thank you so much for the wonderful comments Diane! We appreciate your trust in hosting one of the most important days of your life. Congratulations from everyone here at The Westin Chicago Northwest!

We had our reception at in the Lakeside Pavilion tent for 230 people on October 14. Throughout the entire planning process, Sheree Slupski was incredible. She was a quick and effective communicator, and always answered my multitude of questions and concerns with a generous and helpful spirit. The staff was wonderful the entire week of the wedding, allowing us to drop off anything we wanted beforehand, setting up our tables and linens as soon as they could, and were so helpful when my family and friends set up our décor, etc. Sheree and the entire staff made sure every detail was perfect. We were very impressed with the service we received at our tasting, from Sheree along the way, and on our wedding night. The food and bar package are very solid, especially considering just how large-scale the catering has to be. We received SO many compliments on our venue, food, and service. It just so happened that our wedding night became the wettest October day in history (10.9 inches of rain in Itasca!), but the tent and staff held up and kept us all dry and dancing the night away. Sheree checked in with my husband and I periodically through the night to keep us posted on the time, the weather, and to be sure we were happy - during cocktail hour she even met us with our fave drinks in hand, because she noticed we hadn't gotten to the bar yet! I would HIGHLY recommend this venue and working with Sheree to anyone looking to get married in the Chicago area.

We just had our wedding reception at the Westin Northwest Chicago (Lakeside Pavilion) this past Saturday (9/30/17). I cannot say enough good things about our experience. Everything leading up to the wedding went super smoothly (communication, tastings, meetings, etc). They were also able to provide us with recommendations for vendors (florist, dj, uplighting, etc) who all worked out great. The night of the reception went super smoothly. Everything was set up as we had talked about, the food was delicious, the bar service was great, and the physical space looked as we hoped it would. We received so many compliments from our guests. Also, the hotel itself was beautiful and the rooms were really nice (and reasonably priced). I would 100% recommend the Westin Northwest Chicago as a wedding reception location. Everything went perfectly and we are now left with incredible memories from the night.

We got married on August 19th and The Westin Chicago Northwest was the PERFECT venue for our wedding ceremony and reception. We had a lot of out of town guests so the fact that everyone could stay in one location made it so convenient for them. Our ceremony took place outside and it was such a beautiful setting. We had our cocktail hour on the patio and our reception was in the Lakeside Pavilion. I wanted a tented feel so the fact that we were able to have that but also have air conditioning was the icing on the cake! The Lakeside Pavilion is so unique because each bride can truly make it their own. Every wedding I have seen in the pavilion looks so different and the all white canvas allows each couple to make it a reflection of them. The food was also AMAZING! We added late night snacks and the strawberry infusion bar and are so thankful we did! Our guests still rave about it all! We've heard from multiple people that it was the best food they have had at a wedding. We worked with Aileen throughout the process and she was very helpful with all of our questions and needs. I couldn't recommend The Westin Chicago Northwest more - I truly think it is such an amazing venue and am so happy that we chose to have our special day there!

I highly recommend the Westing Chicago Northwest in Itasca for weddings! I had my picture perfect wedding November 12, 2016 there in the grand ballroom. From our first meeting, we were impressed with the bright and elegant atrium lobby. Amanda, our wedding coordinator was helpful and thorough. Throughout the planning process she was available to answer questions and accommodate all requests. The atrium was perfect for a classy cocktail hour, the ballroom was a beautiful space for our reception and the rooms were newly updated and comfortable for all of our guests. The food was amazing - so many choices to offer guests, all of them delicious! The night of the wedding, the Westin staff made sure we had everything we needed at a moments notice. The reception went smoothly and the staff was professional at all times. I highly recommend the Westin Chicago Northwest in Itasca for a wedding. We received so many compliments from our guests and I couldn't be happier with how the entire process went!!!

My husband and I had our reception in the Lakeside Pavilion on Sept 3rd of this year and we could not be happier with our decision to book with the Westin. Amanda was so great to work with because she made sure to answer all my questions and responded very quickly to all of my emails. We dropped off favors and things to be displayed at the reception the week of and they were all set up exactly how I wanted them to be. On the day of, everything was PERFECT from beginning to end! The hair and makeup artists requested higher chairs for the morning of, so I called down and the staff asked how many I needed and they were brought up immediately. After our ceremony we came back to the Westin for pictures and the scenery looks great in all of our pictures. When I walked into the Pavilion for the first time I was overjoyed because it looked beautiful! All of my guests are still talking about how the food was delicious from beginning to end and how they never had to wait long for a drink at the bar. The staff was also amazing every moment of the night because they were constantly asking my husband and I if we needed anything and they were bringing us drinks, so we never had to go to the bar ourselves. Another thing that I really appreciated was that the food from cocktail hour was left on the head table since the bridal party was not at the cocktail hour for too long. I highly recommend the Lakeside Pavilion if you are looking for the tented look. The way it is draped and the surrounding water and trees make it so beautiful. If I could give more than 5 stars, I definitely would. Thank you for making my wedding exactly what I had hoped it would be!
