  • Holiday Inn is a great venue for a true Chicago wedding vibe. The Wolf Point Ballroom has a jaw dropping view of the city. I like the fact that they have both a room for cocktails and another room for the dinner. We had over 200 people invited and it never felt crowded. Barbara Martin and her staff are outstanding. At the end of the reception, one guest lost a pricey bracelet that could have been easily pocketed. The staff found the bracelet during clean up and turned it in. My guest was so happy to hear that her bracelet was found. Food was very good (especially the chicken). The evening ran smoothly and our guests had a great time!

  • Blown out of the water by the Holiday Inn Mart Plaza and their staff. Our wedding was absolutely perfect. This location is in a great spot, an impossible to beat location in the heart of the city. It is right along the river walk and we were lucky enough to get a nice day in April to be able to walk along the river for our pictures. The Wolf Point ballroom has incredible floor to ceiling windows that give you a stunning view of the city, as do so many of the guest rooms! Aside from the natural beauty the location provides, the hotel goes above and beyond to create the wedding for you. My invitations came to life in the decor of the room, and they even hung some garden lights to soften the feel of the hotel ballroom and bring the outdoors in. The food was INCREDIBLE. I got so many compliments from guests regarding their food and their overall stay. The hotel was accommodating to guest needs and so responsive to work with. Absolutely amazing!

  • Liliana and her team were phenomenal! For start to finish and top to bottom, they helped us through every decision and made our wedding day fantastic. We could not be happier with the venue, food, service and hospitality from the planning stages through our wedding day. On our wedding day we had nothing but compliments from our guests. They were able to accommodate any request we had, and we could not have asked for a better team with which to work.

  • I had my wedding reception here on 5/21/16 at the Wolfpoint Ballroom. I searched numerous places in Chicago for a reception venue, but the choice ended up being easy after going to the Mart Plaza and seeing the gorgeous views. Our wedding weekend was perfect thanks to the venue and Janet. Janet was so responsive to emails, questions, and went above and beyond during our planning to ensure the reception went perfect. I can't thank her enough for all of her help and support over the last 6 months. The entire hotel truly treated everyone so well. The bridal suite had a wonderful view of the river. Janet even arranged me to have an early check in so I could get ready for my rehearsal dinner. The food here is first class as well as the great bar. (The tasting we had in March was fabulous and the food tasted the same on the wedding day!) There is nowhere else in the city I would have rather had my reception at. The day was like a dream for us. Thank you again so much Mart Plaza and Janet f... Read more

  • I cannot say enough wonderful things about our reception that we held at the Holiday Inn Chicago Mart Plaza, Wolf Point Ballroom, last weekend. The room was absolutely stunning, the food was amazing, and the staff was so accommodating. Janet was fabulous to work with from start to finish. They went above and beyond to make sure every detail was taken care of. I cannot thank Janet and the staff enough for making out special night so great!

  • This was a great wedding venue in downtown Chicago, and reasonably priced. Barbara was the most amazing person to work with, and the view from our Wolf Point Ballroom is amazing. Food was better than mediocre, but not great. TO me, the view and the ease of excellent service was what mattered. We had such a blast!

    Thanks so much Diana -- what a beautiful bride you were and a great wedding! All the very best to you and Fabian!! Barbara

  • I would highly recommend this venue and Liliana to anyone looking to get married in DT Chicago! Not only is it located downtown but it is on the 15th floor with great views. We appreciated the all-inclusive feel since we did not have to worry about finding tables, chairs, food, cake, or hotel rooms. Overall, my experience was great and it was awesome to walk around the lobby, bar, and restaurant and see our guests. It made it easier to speak with everyone. Liliana, the Catering Sales Manager, was amazing and answered all of our questions in a smile. She helped us get the most "bang for our buck!" The only hiccup was with their computer system for the rooms. They were having a hard time identifying which rooms where for whom, especially if the last names were the same. They do not have valet but do have parking and bellmen that were extremely vital in bringing our stuff to our rooms. But that would not stop me from going back.

  • The reception went fine, it was afterwards that was the nightmare. We chose Mart plaza for the views (brides beware that this summer a building is going up right next to it, not only will there be hideous construction but it will block the river view.) It was much cheaper than other places in the city, so once I got over the fact that I was going to have to put "holiday inn" on my wedding invites we booked it. Our coordinator Samantha (who no longer works there) was amazing, food was fine, drinks were fine. We were told that they would bring in an additional beer (my husbands favorite) for the reception, so we told all of our friends who were also excited about it, they provided one case for 210 people, and didn't have it out as an option. I think my husband had one and then they were gone. Which is fine, they didn't need to get it but don't tell us you're going to and make us look stupid by running out 10 minutes into cocktail hour. So while on our honeymoon we noticed addition... Read more

  • Venue was beautiful and they were very helpful and gay-supportive. Our only issue was that we wanted a champagne toast and we had to use their champagne, which turned out to be a cheap screw-cap champagne that was over-priced. Other than that, it was a great experience.

    Dear Ryan, It was our pleasure to share your special day with you, your family, and friends!

  • A reception at the Mart Plaza isn’t cheap, but you get what you pay for! The food is delicious and plentiful, the staff knows exactly what they’re doing, and the views can’t be beat. They worked well with all our vendors and were solid in getting all of our decor set up as we wanted. Working with Barbara, their former wedding coordinator, was great. Janet took over for her about a month before our wedding, but based on our interactions with her, we have no reason to think she won’t be just as good. Our guests had a great experience with their stays and said the hotel staff was always helpful. Be careful about the parking situation, though. Until their construction is done, their valet lot is extremely small, so most cars end up a few blocks away in a garage and take a fair amount of time to retrieve. Make sure your guests plan ahead! Highly recommended.

  • One of the best values in the city by far with the contract I signed, but I think that the new coordinator mentioned that many things were changing ( no more free vendor parking, meals for vendors) so ask lots of questions at every venue to be able to compare. The view was why we chose the location- and the location itself being right downtown. I was scared to say I was getting married at the holiday inn- but the ballroom with the view was so amazing. There was some construction outside which hopefully won't block view or that would be a shame bc the view of the river is amazing. I would recommend having a wedding coordinator if going with this vendor just to help coordinate with the brand new wedding coordinator they had just hired for my wedding. I had one and it's much easier than if I was making all the arrangements with the new event caterer (who was unaware of many of the preferred vendors on their wedding list). Overall wonderful experience would recommend with everything I had ... Read more
