Chicago Wedding Venues
Since hosting our first wedding in 1893, the Congress Plaza Hotel & Convention Center has upheld an enduring tradition as one of downtown Chicago’s premier venues for unforgettable wedding celebrations and social events.
Blending historic elegance with contemporary style, the hotel features versatile venues designed to accommodate intimate family affairs and grand ballroom galas alike.
For photos and fun guest activities, our location, adjacent to Grant Park and a short walk from Millennium Park and Lake Michigan, offers limitless opportunities to infuse your wedding celebration with authentic Windy City energy and flair.
Choose from among 23 contemporary venues for your wedding reception. One of the most sought-after spaces in Chicago, our Gold Room is ideal for more formal ceremonies of up to 400 guests or dinners of up to 290. Guests hosting an event in the Gold Room typically use the Rendezvous Space for the cocktail hour. The Florentine Room accommodates up to 300 guests for ceremonies or 180 in a banquet setting, while the Francis, Belmont and Plaza rooms offer great city views for cocktail parties and smaller gatherings.
