The catering and event staff were incredibly impressive. The catered to all our needs, it was a flawless evening, and my family is still talking about how great the food was (and they are tough critics).
The rooms are beautiful and when you get there the staff will do anything you need. We used the shuttle to go to the ceremony and back and it was delightful. the driver even had cold beverages for us since it was in the 90's. However, the reservation system for our guests at the hotel was very poor. One minute we would have twenty rooms available in our block and the next minute there would be none. I had to call and reserve rooms myself for most of my relatives because the staff didn't know how to do it and the website didn't work. Plus, we were put in the room next to our parents when we specifically asked not to be next to them.
This venue was more beautiful than I could have ever imagined. We had U of I musicians play and the acoustics were amazing. It was unique, meaningful, cozy, and elegant. IT was a little work to get it reserved, but well worth it.
