"Chicago Metro Wedding Venue", An Eventective User from Chicago and IL
This was awesome for my wedding I had with my wife last year. This place was very fancy and clean. I loved the atmosphere of this place. I loved that big space I rented out for my very special wedding. I loved the drinks they offer at the Renaissance Downtown Chicago Hotel. The bar tenders definitely know how to make good cock tails. I loved how nice the bar tenders were. They gave us warm smiles as they made drinks. Besides the drinks the food was good as well. The food was perfectly cooked. They cooked steak and lobster for me. The people that worked at that hotel for my wedding were really nice and provided really good service. They listened to everything I said. The waiters dressed really professionally. The workers at the hotel made really sure that my guest had a really good time. This place mad a really good impression on my wedding. My wife was very happy. I was very happy. My guest were also very happy. My friends keep reminding me what a great time they had at my wedding. The only downfall of this place was the price. It was expensive. The price doesn't matter so much because a wedding should only happen once in a lifetime.

"Good wedding venues", An Eventective User from chicago il
the Renaissance Chicago Downtown Hotel was were my cousin got married in the year 2002, and the Renaissance hotel was beautiful. My cousin keith took me to the renaissance hotel to make the reservation and as it turned out the reservation was very inexpencive. The package that keith purchased included the Grand Ball room for the ceremony, and a lounge for the reception. Out of kindness, and sort of like a congratulations gift from the renaissance hotel, they included free flowers for the bridsmaids, and they also provided the dj and the photographer for a very low discounted fee. The grand ball room has a capacity of about ten thousand people, and it is also equipt with very large screens for presentations and videos. The package also included full catering, and an open bar until the reception was over. Once the day of the wedding came, everything went as planned, we had the ceremony which ended on time, the the groomsman and the bridesmaids followed the bride and groom around the outside of the hotel for pictures. The food was great and so was the music. overall the experience was more than good it was great, because the price was right, the people were nice and the customer service was on point. I would highly recommend holding your wedding venue with the Renaissance Chicago Downtown Hotel. They will also include a very affordable hotel stay for the bride, groom, and grooms man and brides maids.
