Why We Like This Place

Five perks at the Sheraton Grand Chicago:

  • This big, beautiful hotel is located in the heart of downtown Chicago on the Chicago River, and is within walking distance of the Magnificent Mile, Millennium Park, and Navy Pier.
  • Event spaces range from the Sheraton Chicago Ballroom—the largest in the Midwest, hosting over 4,000—to the intimate Fountainview Room, which boasts floor-to-ceiling windows that let your guests fully appreciate the surrounding sites. Many rooms have views of the river and Lake Michigan.
  • The Chi Bar, a sleek, sophisticated setting for your pre-reception gathering or happy hour, mixes up creative cocktails like the Ginger Rum Punch and the Martinez Martini.
  • Every wedding package includes a custom wedding website that allows your guests to reserve their own rooms and lets you easily monitor your RSVPs.
  • You can host the perfect al fresco cocktail reception on the River Esplanade, an outdoor deck along the water that treats your guests to a close-up view of the river and the Nicholas J. Melas Centennial Fountain.
