Danielle is like family to us by now. The venue is probably one of the most important vendors you will work with, and I knew the Embassy Suites is the place for us since I met Danielle for the first time (was already in love then). All along she was fair, transparent and so so helpful. Our package was very reasonable which enabled us to do a downtown wedding without compromising on the number of guests. A lot of our guests were from out of town, so many stayed at the hotel and they had a great time exploring the city from there, as well as seeing each other for breakfast and for the complimentary happy hour. Day of the wedding everything worked well, Danielle was calm, attentive and on top of everything, just like she always is... Thank you for everything, we had the best time ever!

My husband and I got married here on 5/26/18 and it was absolutely perfect. Danielle was extremely helpful throughout the entire process and she is extremely organized. She made everything perfect and accomated our needs in every way. We saw a lot of Chicago venues and one of the things that stood out to us most was the presentation upon our arrival of the tour and how involved Danielle was from the moment we met her. It was also nice because Embassy Suites was much more willing to work with us and our budget compared to the othee venues we toured. Another plus is that the food is delicious. You always worry that venue food won’t be that good, but the meals were here exceptional and we got SO many compliments. We even got to customize our dinner menu and give suggestions. The entire process up to our wedding day was flawless and we couldn’t be more happier 

Laura was great to work with and quick to answer my questions. She was accommodating for all the nuances of my planned meeting and eased any concerns I had with the unknown! Would definitely work with the property again. I really liked the text communication - it made me feel welcomed and appreciated, but also gave me a chance to work out details related to my event in a timely manner that email sometimes did not allow!

Toni was fantastic to work with--very attentive, did a great job answering all my questions and offered great suggestions. The banquets/catering staff was also fantastic to work with! They were so helpful and went above and beyond to make our event fantastic. I so appreciated their friendly demeanor and always felt like they went out of their way to look for ways to be helpful. Finally, David from AV was always there and helped to make sure that things ran smoothly. Top-notch customer service from everyone. Please be sure to pass along my sincere thanks to all of them.

Working with such wonderful professionals (Kevin McNally and Zinete Cungic) allowed the planning process, for my groups stay, to come to fruition without a hitch. I thank you both for the great hospitality and look forward to working with you again in the future.
