If you’re looking for where to host your next event or already have your eyes set on Chicago, you’ve come to the right place.

From dreamy wedding venues to large convention centers to everything in between, Chicago offers event planners and businesses the full package. Plus, with the Hilton family of hotels scattered throughout the Chicagoland area, the possibilities are endless for you and your guests or attendees. In fact, here are four reasons why this gorgeous city is your perfect destination.


Chicago offers more than just rich architecture and a lively food scene, it’s also one of the more accessible cities for travelers far and wide. With two international airports and Amtrak or Metra train routes, this Midwest hub offers your guests an easy, convenient and central location to get to—especially from each coast.

If you’re looking at hosting your event or meeting at one of our downtown hotels, your guests can even enjoy the stay without having to worry about renting a car or coordinating rides. Depending on what the itinerary holds, visitors can stick to walking or public transportation. If a ride is needed though, there are plenty of taxi cabs to hail or ride-sharing services like Lyft. And now, Hilton Honors members can earn Points on Lyft rides when they link their accounts.


We’ve already mentioned how Chicago is the perfect destination for all types of events. In addition to the city’s gorgeous backdrop though, Hilton has you covered with an array of venues located in the heart of the Chicago, close to the airports and in the surrounding suburbs.

Just think about your meeting taking place in one of our high-tech boardrooms, ready to make an impact. Imagine your wedding set in one of our historic ballrooms or on a rooftop with the skyline behind you. Or, perhaps find the perfect place to host thousands of attendees for your next convention. Hilton has the space for you and your vision.


Finding the right space for your meeting or event is about more than just picking a place that can accommodate your guests during an allotted time—it’s about making sure they’re accommodated for throughout their stay.

Your event is the star of the show here in Chicago, but there are plenty of supporting acts to keep your guests and attendees entertained. From post-meeting entertainment to fine dining and delicious meals, our final reason to host your event in Chicago is all about the city itself.
