CHICAGO WEDDING IN JUNE

June, 2007 in Chicago

"We actually got married in Kauai, Hawaii, but celebrated with family & friends in Chicago. It was hot, hot, hot! You never know what you'll get around here weather-wise... Chicago has a lot to offer, but can be hard for suburbanites to "figure out", and is quite expensive."

"East Bank does a very nice job. A few details were not ideal (temperature not regulated well, timing of dessert course off, huge logs of goat cheese instead of crumbles on the spinach salad), and I would have expected they'd catch that sort of thing, but all in all the service, food, and amenities are top-notch here."

"It's huge, so you walk a long way to your very small room, and not that well-located unless you're going to hang out around the Museum Campus / Art Institute / Grant Park. I wish I'd booked a smaller hotel (even at higher rates) in River North or along the Mag Mile."
