The Westin Chicago River North
From grandiose galas to intimate board meetings, our 28,000 square feet of flexible space can be specially customized to turn your event into something truly memorable.
At 4,600 square feet, our Grand Ballroom can accommodate up to 1,000 guests for a keynote speech or elegant reception. Or, divide the room into three sections for smaller gatherings. While your guests mingle, they can admire modern art lit by striking fixtures that hang from 18-foot ceilings. When it’s time for fresh air, guests can exit to the 4,600-square-foot Grand Court pre-function space, which opens out to a terrace that overlooks the Chicago River.
The more intimate Astor Ballroom spans 2,850 square feet of naturally lit space and can accommodate 400 guests for a reception. A beautiful French limestone floor with inlaid accents of Golden Giallo Reale and Emperado Dark marble creates a stunning first impression. The Astor’s Murano crystal chandeliers and immense windows overlooking the river illuminate the space by day and night.
The art collection displayed on the walls of our 940-square-foot Gallery helps create an inspiring atmosphere for receptions or meetings. Store any necessary supplies or equipment in the adjoining large storage room while you usher up to 40 guests through the beautiful glass doors of the 103-square-foot entry foyer.
Our 405-square-foot Executive Meeting Room and hospitality suites are ideal for smaller, but no less productive, meetings. Windows let in plenty of natural light while affording uplifting views of the river. Guests can gather around a conference table for impactful presentations on a large LCD TV. For your convenience, these rooms feature multiple entry doors and full bathrooms, as well as an entry foyer with a wet bar.
