Early-bird event planners can choose among our beautiful new ballrooms and meeting spaces, all with high-end décor and upscale finishes that mirror our recently renovated guest rooms and suites – all at a discount.
Rosemont, IL (PRWEB) September 1, 2010
In anticipation of end-of-year parties and other events, the newly remodeled Crowne Plaza Chicago O’Hare Hotel & Conference Center (http://www.CrownePlazaOhare.com), 5440 N. River Rd., is offering 10% off the total bill for events booked through Oct. 15.
“Early-bird event planners can choose among our beautiful new ballrooms and meeting spaces, all with high-end décor and upscale finishes that mirror our recently renovated guest rooms and suites – all at a discount,” explained Patty Connolly, Crowne Plaza Chicago O’Hare general manager.
The hotel’s newest offering is the recently opened 2,200-square-foot Balmoral Ballroom. “It’s an intimate setting for receptions of up to 225 guests. The elegant gossamer fabric chandelier and adjacent pre-function space with natural lighting make it special,” said Connolly.
For larger groups, the hotel’s 23,500-square-foot O’Hare International Ballroom – one of the largest column-free rooms in the area – accommodates receptions for up to 3,800 guests, sit-down meals for up to 2,300, and theater-style seating for up to 3,000. It can be divided into as many as five smaller spaces, and it has more than 4,000 square feet of adjacent pre-function space for staging registrations, pre-meal receptions, or dessert buffets.
In tandem with the new spaces is a new holiday menu created by the hotel’s award-winning Executive Chef Michael Grove. “We’re featuring locally grown ingredients, lighter preparations, plus some other popular trends, such as themed, tapas-style food stations. People like having choices about their food, and they like the option of moving about and socializing with other party guests,” he explained.
For smaller events – including those in the 8-seat , Wii-equipped Visibility Bar VIP Lounge -- guests can opt for menu items from the hotel’s recently opened Chicago Fire Oven (http://www.chicagofireoven.com) restaurant. As the name implies, the restaurant’s signature dishes (thin-crust pizzas, steaks, burgers, pork, chicken and fish) are prepared in a blazing stone hearth oven. The high-heat oven also is the secret ingredient in its house-roasted tomato-based pasta sauces, and the baguette parmesan “rings” served with salads.
For all events, the Crowne Plaza Chicago O’Hare’s dedicated meeting managers are there to help, with services that include a two-hour response to RFP guarantee and daily meetings debriefs.
“Whether it’s a private dinner for 10 or a sit-down banquet for 1,400, we have the facilities, amenities, food and service to make any event a success,” said Connolly.

With its prime location just 1.5 miles from O’Hare International Airport, across from the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center, and adjacent to the Rosemont Theater, the hotel regularly hosts training sessions, conferences and trade shows in many industries, as well as religious gatherings, self-help seminars, dance competitions and weddings.
Over the past three years, the hotel has renovated all 503 guest rooms and suites, plus the O’Hare International Ballroom. It has added the Balmoral Ballroom, 4,000 square feet of pre-function meeting space, two 16-seat boardrooms, a business center, and an eight-seat conference room that rents by the hour.
