Dance the night away beneath glittering chandeliers, with the lights of Chicago twinkling in the background, in one of our two elegant ballrooms.

Ideal for intimate affairs, the Astor Ballroom features Murano crystal chandeliers and rich wood paneling. Large windows overlook the Chicago River and allow natural light to cascade into the space. The Astor Ballroom can accommodate 210 guests for banquets and 400 for receptions.

Couples with more elaborate affairs in mind will find plenty of space in our Grand Ballroom. Contemporary chandeliers and russet and brown accents create a decidedly modern atmosphere for up to 500 guests. Step through glass doors to an outdoor terrace overlooking the river, or enjoy pre-reception cocktails in the adjacent Grand Court.


Delight the palates of your guests with a custom menu that highlights your favorite flavors, or choose a special wedding package designed by our award-winning executive chef. Start with tantalizing hors d’oeuvres like salmon caviar poke or herbed goat cheese and fig in a pastry shell, before moving on to succulent mains like chicken picatta with lemon vermicelli and seasonal, sustainable grilled fish with charred plum tomato sauce. An array of food stations—from fresh seafood to Asian cuisine—is available to tempt your guests.

We can design a menu around any dietary restriction or cultural tradition, and offer kosher catering services for our Jewish guests.


Our seasoned Westin Wedding Specialists will instinctively and thoughtfully respond your wishes and needs, leaving you feeling energized, relaxed, and able to fully enjoy your perfect day.
