I’d call the hotels and ask, personally. A five star place has very likely done this before. You can splurge on a suite with a dining area and pre-arrange a room service dinner.

Is there a W hotel in your area? Our W has a service called “Whatever, Whenever” which is available to guests at a certain level of room. You can liaise with the staff working in that department to arrange pretty much anything.

The Conrad Chicago or the Intercontinental on Mag Mile should be able to do this, at least as far as the suite and dinner go. You will likely need to arrange the officiant. You can also hire a wedding planner to locate the suite and make the arrangements.

I think if you call high end hotels they will put a package together for you that will be bespoke and allow you avoid the spotlight. Congratulations

@sujibear27:  look up hotel elopement packages. I found many. You may need to do so in a more touristy  area. We actually looked at a few locations then got married at home.

I think the other posters have covered advice well. If you calling ahead to a five star like W Hotel or a Four Seasons, I am sure they will be able to arrange something for you. 

Mostly I want to say this – you are not a weirdo. This sounds so beautiful and romantic! You don’t need a huge ballroom and a gaggle of guests to make a wedding, you just need two people in love (and some paperwork). That against a grand Chicago skyline sounds amazing.

My guess is any nice hotel can make this happen. It doesn’t sound like anything that you have in mind is even a stretch for them! (It basically involves decorating the room and having a lovely meal served in your suite, right?) I would just pick the location of your dreams and give them a call. Frankly if its just the two of you you probably don’t even technically need to tell them that you are getting married in the room– but you should probably do so because they have the resources and skills to help out!

I looked into this too for our December 2020 wedding (though we ended up marrying in a private room of a restaurant).

I live in a Midwestern city but it isn’t a tourist destination. I first looked at the room options in high end hotels then asked what the hotel amenities were for either having food prepared at hotel brought up vs. having something delivered from a nicer restaurant, and then looked at officiants. I found the hotels in my area, even nicer ones like Kimpton, Ritz, etc., would provide more recommendations vs. creating the package for you. 

We opted not to do this as I wanted my own space to get ready in the morning and to not have to “kick everyone out” of the suite post dinner. 

You aren’t weird at all! 

ETA: of higher end hotels, I would start with the ones who have residences in addition to normal rooms as they usually have larger suite/penthouse room options.

I would call any hotel that you are interested in and see what they can do. I’m certain you can make this happen.

We did that at a B&B. You could try to Google enlopement packages. That’s how I found mine.
