With everyone going full tilt in work and play, family life and professional goals, it is important to cultivate a list of local resources for getting things done with style sand finesse. Whether you need to throw a bridal shower, host your extended family or gather a group of sales professionals to brainstorm another commanding quarter of results, Burr Ridge has a location—and highly skilled staffers—where you can wow everyone around you, even as you manage to enjoy the event yourself.
Family Fun Time
When family comes to town because they want to experience the Brookfield Zoo or simply wish to enjoy some time with their cousins, it’s fun to have houseguests. That said, when whole family convenes for a big holiday or family reunion, it can also be nice to set up a “home base” where everyone can be together—and have a private retreat. The Burr Ridge Hotels have the ideal solution when hosting a big group.
Smartly designed and stylishly furnished, the SpringHill Suites Burr Ridge is Marriott’s moderately priced all-studio brand, which offers more room to stretch out and get comfortable. Positioned by a pristine pool near famous Harvester Park, the spacious studio suites with separate living and sleeping areas are imaginatively laid out, and great for families.
Extended Stay America Burr Ridge is another good option with a “home away from home” feeling to it thanks to accommodations designed especially for long-term travelers. Spacious studio suites offer separate sleeping, living, and working areas, and feature fully equipped kitchens…amenities you won’t find in a typical hotel room.
Special Event Specialists
Contemporary style meets easy allure at Chicago Marriott Southwest Burr Ridge. Nestled by three small lakes in an area dotted with majestic trees, this upscale, boutique-style hotel features an eclectic mix of classic and contemporary styles with inviting earth tones throughout the lobby and spacious rooms and suites. The on-site restaurant Ciazza is a good place to catch up or sneak in a little business, even on a relaxing getaway.
This is the hotel to consider for wedding guests, and for a reception. The Marriott is also a great spot to make reservations for special occasion brunches. Delicious food, the beautiful setting, and an insider’s only vibe mean that families can enjoy a relaxed and less crowded time together than they might elsewhere, even on big brunching days like Easter and Mother’s Day.
Looking to do a little team building? Launching a new product? Quality Inn & Conference Center Burr Ridge can accommodate all kinds of events from intimate business meetings and large conferences to reunions and wedding receptions with its 8,000 square feet of easily accessible and flexible meeting space.
Dining’s Secret Hot Spot
When it’s time to celebrate success, Burr Ridge has so many good options people may find themselves looking for an excuse to throw together a special luncheon or dinner. Capri Ristorante Italiano is the longstanding go-to for many local fans of Italian food. If you do have family staying in one of the local hotels, direct them to call Capri Express for carry-out versions of favorite dishes. Topaz dazzles with South Beach-style glamour and food so good it garnered a Michelin mention. Cooper’s Hawk Winery and Restaurant has developed a loyal following of food and wine lovers. Steak and seafood fans love Porterhouse and Eddie Merlot’s. The insider’s tip for enjoying Eddie Merlot’s when your sitter has to be home early is to pop in for the lounge menu. Wok’n Fire and Dao Sushi and Thai are great for when your group is seeking something lively and a little bit exotic. If it’s sweets that you’re craving, stop in at Kirsten’s Danish Bakery for one of their handmade desserts or “award winning” Kringle, a traditional Danish treat that’s shaped like a pretzel.
Keep these Burr Ridge dining and lodging options in mind the next time you’re planning a fun family or important work event.
