Venue Spotlight: Holiday Inn Crystal Lake

I had the wonderful opportunity to check in with one of my former students who is now the Catering Sales Manager of the Holiday Inn Chicago-Crystal Lake Conference Center. My visit of this great location was not only educational, but delicious!

The Holiday Inn specializes in weddings and special events and is minutes away from great shopping, golfing and other fun activities such as the River Boat, Six Flags and museums. With 19 event and meeting spaces, they can just about accommodate any size event. They have a great restaurant in which I had the pleasure of having a wonderful lunch, a gorgeous outdoor deck, a bar that stays open until 11 and a really hip black and white lounge that stays open until 2:00am for the night owls.

Now for the couple who wishes to host their wedding ceremony and reception in the space, they offer some really nice amenities to name a few:

  • Personal on-site coordinator;
  • Award-winning Chef on staff;
  • Champagne toast;
  • 4-hour bar; and
  • Discounted accommodations for your guests and I must say, the rooms are really spacious and comfortable

The per person price is reasonable as well starting at $51.95, minus tax and gratuity. And additions like the wedding cake and speciality linens can be added for a nominal fee. Oh and their provided centerpieces are not the flower in a bud vase, but a really nice hurricane vase that can be used to enhance your decor.

Contact Lena Marnell at 815.477.7000 or for more information and a site tour. She's awesome and won't let you down

Until next time...WEDologize!
