  • Maureen and her team at the Hilton Chicago/Northbrook are some of the best in the industry. Our wedding was amazing and we are so thankful Maureen was our wedding coordinator. She took our vision and brought it to life. It was beautiful and elegant. Our friends and family cannot stop talking about the great time they had and the food. The food was delicious and if you are looking for food outside the traditional dried piece of chicken, this place works with you on a menu that your guests will love. Our cocktail hour was a hit with grilled cheese and tomato soup shooters, bbq meatballs and even sushi. Our dinner included sirloin, chicken stuffed with gouda and panchetta, and our vegetarian dish was a portabello mushroom stuffed with feta and grilled vegetables. We had a late night snack option of sliders and chicken fingers/mozzarella sticks. We received so many compliments on the menu and it was all because Maureen took her time helping us craft the one that worked for us. Truly amaz... Read more

    Thank you for such a wonderful review of our hotel and staff. It was a pleasure working with such an amazing couple! I can't wait to plan something else with you in the future. Best wishes to you both!

  • We recently got married at this venue, and everything went as well as we could have asked for! Maureen and the rest of the staff were very accommodating throughout the entire process, and made the event as low-stress as possible. We actually can’t think of one thing that went wrong the day of. Maureen maintained regular contact with us, and was always accessible when we had any questions or issues that needed to be addressed.  As soon as we met Maureen, we were sold on having our wedding at the Hilton/Chicago in Northbrook. Maureen is highly organized, attentive, professional, and overall amazing! She far exceeded our expectations. We would not change a thing about the day!

  • The wedding was flawless from start to finish and beyond. Our point of contact, Maureen Schoenbauer, met and/or spoke with us on several occasions before the wedding date. On the wedding date she coordinated everything before, during and after the ceremony in a seamless manner. Similarly, the reception and dinner were perfectly executed by the staff. Same for the buffet the following morning. Throughout the entire process Maureen and her entire staff were cordial, professional and responsive to every request we made. Many of our guests remarked that this was one of the most enjoyable weddings they have ever attended.

  • We booked the Hilton Northbrook for our wedding a reception, and Kesha helped with the event organization and planning. Everything was great! The venue is excellent, with beautiful, open spaces and friendly staff. Considering all the amenities, the cost is reasonable. Kesha helped us plan all the details, with good organization and clear options. She basically served as a complimentary wedding planner, and we appreciated personalized touches she made on the day. The food tasting was fun, and all the options were delicious. They were flexible on customization of dishes, and they offered customized bar options for additional cost. We planned an outdoor ceremony, but it rained on the day. Fortunately, they had a backup plan and there was no disruption at all. The Hilton Northbrook has everything streamlined, with the ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner, and reception, so it is very convenient for out-of-town guests. We keep hearing from guests how wonderful they thought everything was... Read more

  • My husband and I had our wedding at the Hilton on 9/9 and everything was absolutely amazing! We actually had all of our wedding festivities there - rehearsal, rehearsal dinner and breakfast the day after the wedding. I am 100% happy with our decision on this venue. We originally started out with Katie as our coordinator, who was great and then after she left, we started working with Kesha. She hands down made our wedding day the success it was! I cannot say enough wonderful things about Kesha. She is extremely nice and patient and SO detail oriented! The wedding planning process was so easy with the help of Kesha. She helped me keep track of all the little details that I didn't even think of. All of the staff at the Hilton were great and provided wonderful service the day of the wedding. Also, the package with the venue included the catering, bar, cake and the basic decor (mirrors, votive candles and table numbers) which was perfect because we did not do much more than that. The thing ... Read more

  • Many thanks to all involved in our daughter's wedding celebration. I think the Hilton Chicago/Northbrook provided the WOW factor! We were delighted with the room presentation, the tables and chairs were beautiful, the set up just as planned. The food service, and the quality and presentation of the food was spectacular. I cannot tell you how many compliments we received from our guest. The types of comments included how good the logistics of the food service was, how good the food tasted and it was served hot. The hotel rooms were nice, and the staff throughout the hotel were kind and helpful. The cocktail room looked lovely & we really appreciated Alex's and John's AV services of keeping the video a surprise. We (parents of the bride) were so pleased that our guests had such a wonderful time. The grooms family and ours liked the shuttle service which we used to the church and the rehearsal dinner. I truly appreciated the extras -- like letting my sisters & friends use the gathering ... Read more

  • I had my wedding here last weekend and it was amazing. Lisa was very quick to respond to emails and made sure everything was in order. All of my guests loved the food and it was a very good price, cake included! I had my ceremony outside and the cocktail hour on their patio and it was beautiful. They had everything set up for the reception inside and I didn't have to worry about anything! I would definitely recommend the Hilton/Allgauer's to anyone!

  • My husband and I hosted our wedding this past weekend at the Northbrook Hilton. It was the best choice we could have made. Initially we started working with Linda but the main details and planning were handled by Katie and she was a pleasure to work with. She was very nice, friendly, and always open to listen us and to advise us to make great decisions. Not once did she make me feel like I was a bother even when I asked her countless questions. We made lots of changes to our floor plan and she never got tired of our emails. Always saying: “It is your special day, I’m here to help”. The cake was included in the package and it was designed exactly the way we wanted. Also we got as complimentary free suite at the hotel for us the night after our wedding! The room was absolutely amazing! Katie left us a bottle of champagne with chocolate covered strawberries and a nice handwritten card. We even received a voucher for brunch the next day. She really cares about their business a... Read more

  • We just had our wedding reception at the Hilton Northbrook/Chicago and were so pleased with the outcome! The recent renovations made the place sizzle with modern touches. I'm glad they kept the giant chandeliers in the ballroom though - they're so eye-catching! Lisa Anderson was a complete JOY to work with, and Benjamin - the banquet manager was so pleasant and regularly checked on us during the night to make sure we were happy. The outdoor cocktail hour was a favorite among our guests and the ability for the bar to stay open late to accommodate an after party was certainly the icing on the cake. The food, service and overall value was second-to-none. Portions were giant, the food tasted even better than the tasting (which was amazing) and the service - from start to finish - was every bride's dream. I knew we were in good hands! If only my husband and I could get married every weekend... :) We'd certainly pick the Hilton Northbrook again!

  • Working with the wedding Coordinator at the Hilton Chicago/Northbrook has been amazing! She always responds to my emails timely and is constantly being flexible with my crazy requests! She has kept me calm throughout the whole wedding planning process. The Hilton recently got a remodel and looks even more fabulous then it did before and the prices per plate and what you get is super reasonable. I would definitely recommend this venue to everyone!

  • We hosted our wedding on October 4th, 2014, at the Northbrook Hilton. Actually, we started talking to Linda in February just to have an idea about the price and menu. When we contacted her back in June she was ready to help us in any way. It was the best choice we made. She was very nice, friendly, and always open to listen us and to advise us to make the great decision. We made lots of changes on our floor plans and she never got tired with our emails. Always saying: “It is your special day, I’m here to help”. We offered our own budget and she worked on the menu with us. Also the cake was included in their package and they designed it the way we wanted. For the sweet table Linda allowed us to bring those from the outside and we could set up the table in our own or even ask the staff to do it without any charge. The other good thing about the Northbrook Hilton we had the ceremony room and chairs without any charge. Also we got as complimentary free rooms at the hotel for ... Read more

  • The Hilton was an incredible place for us to have our wedding. They were pretty flexible and always answering our questions. They were always willing to help make it just the perfect evening as we worked on planning all the little details and gave us more room just to be sure everyone was comfortable. The food is awesome and the cake was delish! Marilyn the baker we had was so delightful to talk to and help coordinate everything. We did have a minor issue due to our event being handed over from one planner to another. A few things were left behind (seat covers - but I should have double checked that it was included on the final bill) and some things were communicated incorrectly to us, but overall it was an incredible experience working with everyone there! The only Real issue we had was with the Hotel itself. They don't have any food open inside the hotel late at night (which seems Extremely odd and silly) and my niece is diabetic (which we had told everyone from day 1 when we toure... Read more
