I got married 9/23/17 at Hotel Arista and I cannot say enough great things about the venue! Everything is all in one place, we got hair and makeup done in the salon and our rehearsal dinner at CityGate Grille. Katie Jones was my wedding planner and she was amazing! So knowledgeable and organized she was fantastic! I would highly recommend Hotel Arista if you are planning a wedding or special occasion! Great food and great service for sure!

We had our wedding on 8/26/17 at Hotel Arista and it was absolutely phenomenal! From the first moment we walked in, we knew that was where we wanted to have the most special day of our lives. Katie Jones was amazing to work with. She was so easy to get into contact with and made sure to answer all our questions and meet with us whenever we wanted to make sure we were comfortable with everything. Katie and her staff did a great job making sure everything was perfect the day of our wedding. We got numerous compliments on how beautiful the ballroom looked, how good the food was, and how nice the rooms were! My bridesmaids and myself also got our hair and makeup done at the spa and loved every second of it! I highly recommend Hotel Arista and Katie Jones for your wedding, I promise you won't be disappointed!

We ended up choosing Hotel Arista because of their wedding coordinator, Katie. She was so friendly, professional, helpful and patient! She helped us with everything, and personalized the day so that it was just perfect. Not only was the setting beautiful, but it was so easy!! And several of our guests said it was the best steak they had EVER had (not just at a wedding). Seriously, you have to check this place out! Even our photographers were impressed!

My husband and I were very lucky to get married at Hotel Arista on 5/27/17. Katie Jones and the staff at Hotel Arista deserve so much more than the 5 stars allocated in this review. We worked with Katie Jones and it has been our absolute pleasure. Katie was so responsive, positive, organized and knowledgeable of the entire wedding planning process. She and the entire Hotel Arista staff were so accommodating with us and our vendors for the set up, getting ready, and the actual wedding events. They hold semi-annual tastings for Hotel Arista couples to experience all the possible options their packages offer. The food was divine. We even met several vendors at the tasting and actually booked Alfresco Booth – the photobooth vendor after the event! Katie was present during the rehearsal to walk us through the entire process – my husband and I felt so much better knowing where we were going to stand and how the ceremony was laid out. On the actual wedding day, Katie and her team worked efficiently and impressively to ensure that my husband and I focused on our wedding day. The bridal suite is perfect for getting ready with the girls and the same for the groom and his groomsmen. Our guests were made up of a good mix of suburban local, Chicago folk and traveling friends/ family. I was most pleased to hear that they all raved about the staff, the food, the drinks and the location. Nothing made me happier to hear that my guests had a good time. It’s been a month after the wedding and people still talk about Hotel Arista! I highly recommend Katie, Hotel Arista, and their services for any newly engaged couples!

If you are considering having your wedding at Hotel Arista, do it! You will not regret it. We had our wedding there on 12/17/16 and it was beyond perfect. We had a very specific vision for how we wanted the wedding to look and how we wanted the day to go. Everyone we interacted with at the hotel were so friendly and helpful to us. The real stand-out was our wedding designer, Laura Noble. You should request her if you can. From literally Day 1 of planning, she was there for us helping to make the planning process a breeze. She was very responsive to all of our many emails and tons of questions for over a year. She took time to meet with us in person and review the details. Anything and everything we could have dreamed up, she and the staff made come true. She was even there to help calm my nerves before walking down the aisle. Without her, our dream wedding would not have become a reality. In addition, not only were we blown away by the service, our guests were too! We have heard numerous comments how accommodating and friendly all the staff were down to how they served each course of the meal (which was also amazing). Several people have told us that this was the best wedding they had ever been to. Overall, it was such a fantastic experience. People warned me that something would probably not go as planned. Well, with the help of Laura and the Hotel Arista, I can say that not a single went wrong and it was a truly dream. TL;DR: Stop thinking and book Hotel Arista for your wedding. Request Laura Noble for your wedding designer. Have an amazing wedding!

Thank you so much, Allison! It was such a pleasure helping to create your unique wedding day! After all of our planning together, it was so amazing to see your vision come to life on the actual day. I'm so honored to have been a part of it. Best wishes, and cheers! Laura Noble, Wedding Designer

We got married at Hotel Arista this past Saturday, 10/29/16, and we honestly cannot say enough good things... 5 stars is not nearly enough! Laura was the most incredible wedding planner, she always made sure we were her number one priority and made sure our day went as perfect as can be. There wasnt a single mess up, everything was absolutely stunning. We wanted a wine themed wedding and Laura did everything in her power to make our vision a reality. Nearly every guest came up to me throughout the night and mentioned how much they loved everything and how beautifully decorated it was! Laura really made us feel like we were in the heart of Napa Valley. The food was pristine and everyone kept saying how delicious everything was. We cannot thank Laura enough for everything she did for us and our special day! The hotel was phenomenal by allowing us to have our dog Rudy in our ceremony as well as letting him wander around throughout our entire reception! Rudy was truly the star of the show and I couldnt imagine my wedding day without him, Laura really understood that and made every effort to make sure he was with us the whole night! The whole experience was effortless, everything was absolutely imagine and I could go on for hours! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU Hotel Arista for making our dream come true!!!!!!!!!

Thank you so much for your kind words, Katie! We are so happy for you, and it was truly such a pleasure helping to create your special day. Cheers! Laura Noble, Wedding Designer

Wedding Date: 10/15/2016 Our experience with using Hotel Arista as our Wedding venue was fantastic! When we first viewed this location, we met with Laura Noble who showed us the venue spaces, hotel rooms, went through their very detailed package options and answered all questions. We were thrilled to also learn that as part of their Wedding packages, Hotel Arista provided a Wedding Coordinator who would be with us from the start of planning to the big day. Hotel Arista truly provides a “one-stop shop” when it comes to Wedding venue needs. As luck would have it, Laura was also our Wedding Coordinator. We also can’t say enough about how amazing Laura was. We are so grateful for all the time and effort she put into our big day and we could not have imagined doing it without her help. Laura met with us any time we needed her to, she promptly responded to all calls/emails when we had concerns/questions and most importantly, she provided outstanding insights, suggestions and recommendations. Laura is simply fantastic and if you are a Bride-to-be, having her by your side will only make your big day that much better! Thank you, Laura, for everything!

My husband and I got married at Hotel Arista last month. As a same sex couple, we were a bit apprehensive as to how we would be received. Katie Jones was our coordinator for the hotel, and she was terrific. From our first meeting, we could tell she would be a great partner to work with throughout the process. She was open to our ideas and provided valuable suggestions. We had the ceremony on the 12th floor terrace and the reception in the Santorini Room. The room was beautifully decorated. The food was great. The cake was exceptional. Everyone at the hotel was friendly and courteous. Katie delivered everything as promised.

What a lovely property! Even though almost all of our guests stayed at a property next to our venue, we wanted to provide a block at a nicer property as well. My husband and I stayed here on our wedding night, and it was the perfect place. Katie even had a bottle of champagne put in our room which was PERFECT! Thanks again! The hotel does have a salon which is nice for any brides getting ready here.
