Whether you’re booking for business or pleasure, Waldorf Astoria Chicago offers several conference rooms to host a gathering on the fifth floor. Each of the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel’s conference rooms is named after a famous American author of the 1920s (think Hemingway and Fitzgerald), a direct homage to the Chicago hotel’s undercurrent of age-old elegance. Rooms can also be combined to seat more guests, up to a maximum of 130 people. The design of the rooms reflect 1920s Parisian style — high, vaulted ceilings with intricate moldings, large windows for natural light, and ornate crystal chandeliers. Custom-made Chiavari-style chairs make long meetings more comfortable, as the luxury hotel insists on using double-cushioned chairs. And if you need audio-visual equipment, the hotel can help plan out your presentations and technology to lighten your burden.
