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!

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

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!!!

The Westin's team was an absolute pleasure to work with. They were very responsive to all questions and beyond accommodating for our needs for our wedding and reception. From our initial outreach via email through they days following our event, the team at The Westin Northwest went above and beyond to ensure our big day would play out exactly how we had planned. Highly recommend for your next event!

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!

We had our wedding at the Westin this August and we could not speak more highly about this venue! Aileen was incredible to work with and made sure our day was everything we dreamed it would be. The staff was professional and made sure our wedding party was taken care of all night! We got nothing but compliments on how beautiful the cocktail hour and reception were! And the food was AWESOME which is definitely not always something you can say about food at a wedding. I would highly recommend this place if you are looking for a quality experience!

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.
