Why We Like This Place

  • Offering modern luxury in a vintage hotel, the breathtaking Hilton Orrington has an event space to suit everyone’s taste: The historic Heritage Ballroom features 1920s crown molding and Baccarat crystal chandeliers, while the Grand Orrington Ballroom’s sweeping staircase ensures you’ll make a grand entrance. More intimate celebrations are held on the 9th-Floor Promenade, with its floor-to-ceiling windows, rooftop terrace for cocktails, and stunning views of Lake Michigan.
  • The hotel enjoys a prime location. It’s just 30 minutes from downtown Chicago and O’Hare Airport, and within walking distance to shopping, restaurants, entertainment and Northwestern University. You can even host your ceremony on the Evanston Beach, a mere two blocks away.
  • Their wedding package includes some great extras, like a tasting for 4–6 people, a suite for the newlyweds and guest rooms for their parents on the wedding night, and the wedding cake. Want to sweeten the celebration even more? Add a dessert enhancement such as a Custom Candy or Hot Chocolate Station, or an Ice Cream Social with all the toppings!
