    A guide to hosting an event at the JW Marriott Chicago Hotel.

So you've decided Chicago is the place for your soiree. Hosting events, while exciting, can be super stressful. So many details  to consider as you go about the task of executing the magnificent vision that is swirling around in your brain. This is when having a great partner is critical; and the JW Marriott Chicago is standing ready to have your back. 

Your first interaction with the JW sales team is soul-soothing; the strategic questions, asked in a calming manner, helps organize your thoughts and immediately makes you feel like everything is going to be fantastic. As you pour out your needs, they take your ideas, gather the team, and breathe life into them. No matter your work style, from “hands-on” to “please come get this” (and everything in-between), the JW team instinctively taps into your management style. The food and beverage staff develops the cuisine and drink menus; the design team, chock-full of resources, helps create the look; and the AV team makes certain your media is easily digested.


Here is a small peek at the hotness they can bring:



Moroccan theme? How about some watermelon with creamy feta and pomegranate…   



…coupled with a Moroccan Mint Tea Cocktail with sweet tea, lime, vodka and mint?

Champagne dress


You want to merge fashion and champagne? No problem.

Purple ballroom


Need a purple-tinged luxury lounge for a Prince-themed party? How about this?

To reward yourself after the event (or before, so you can be your best), you can treat yourself to their MoroccanOil Hydrating Hammam Experience. This includes relaxing in warm private chamber (helps improve circulation and enhance mental clarity), and body cleansing with a MoroccanOil Fleur d’ Oranger Cleansing Bar enveloped in an exfoliation mitt. 


Next, to restore hydration and radiance to your skin, your attendant applies Moroccanoil Body Souffle (with shea butter), and then pulls MoroccanOil Intense Hydrating Mask through your hair. If you decide to add a signature massage to slay any remaining stress, you’ll receive a free glass of champagne.
