Nowhere else in Chicago does the grandeur of the Golden Age so seamlessly meet sleek modernism than where the storied Auditorium Building joins the Wabash Building’s cool, soaring glass tower. Roosevelt’s Loop location gives you flexibility, charm, and amenities you won’t find anywhere else.

Located in the suburbs? Nestled in the heart of northwest Chicagoland’s business corridor, our Schaumburg campus offers six flexible campus spaces to host intimate receptions and large events.

When it first opened more than 125 years ago, Roosevelt’s Auditorium Building offered Chicago’s pinnacle experience in luxury and hospitality. We’ve inherited that history, which means we know what it takes to make your event special. We’re devoted to every detail, from the technology for your presentation to the muffins for your breakfast meeting.
