I had my wedding at this venue on 6/14/14. It was great! The hotel is upgrading several parts of the place (This is an older building but they are making upgrades). But the architecture is quite different from any other hotel you’ve seen. Aside from that, you can have the ceremony in the tent (in the summer) we had a string trio playing and it was perfect. There is also a fireplace cocktail waiting area that was super cool. The staff was great! The event was great. I loved the octagon room that we had for the reception (again.. lots of unique and different aspects from this building that you won’t see anywhere else). There was never a wait for a drink (the staff / bartenders were fast) It was also nice to have the ceremony, reception and hotel rooms all in one place. This place is HUGE and is a resort. I didn’t feel like I was in Bloomingdale IL! Our contact at the venue (Lori) was great. She is aggressive but that is what you want and need to run a wedding. She made sure everything was great and was a great communicator with us and answered / helped us with any questions that we had. If you keep in mind this is a older building and they are upgrading it… this is a great place. I would recommend her (Lori) and I would recommend this venue for a wedding! - by djoblue (Elk Grove Village, Illinois) on 7/1/14.
