Our partners, Q Center is one of the hidden gems of St. Charles.
You’ve probably stumbled upon a couple of hidden gems while traveling; a quaint restaurant with amazing gazpacho, a shop with designer-quality threads at half the cost, or maybe even a scenic photo op devoid of tourist crowds. Whatever they might’ve been, you often find those unexpected delights turn into mainstays on subsequent visits, now an essential piece towards making your trip something memorable.
The phrase “hidden gem” has been coming up a lot recently from the guests at Q Center, a hotel and conference center in St. Charles, IL. A suburban property might not sound like much at first, especially in comparison to the bustling Chicago venues, but those that take the road less travelled discover a massive facility with 1,043 guest rooms and over 150,000 sq ft of meeting space. Outside of the meeting room you’ll find 2 buffet-style dining halls, 2 bars, a 4,500 sq ft fitness center, and several athletic fields, all cradled in 95 acres of natural riverside scenery. The property is truly a beautiful escape, for anything from large scale training programs and galas to leadership retreats and board meetings. Inside Q Center’s walls is a team of professionals dedicated to the success of your meeting.
A conference planner works alongside you as an extension of your team from Day 1, coordinating logistics, checking in daily, and collaborating with other departments to ensure each item on your schedule runs as intended. We are also home to Q Creative, an award-winning on-site production team that can provide enhanced scenic elements, organize engaging reception activities, capture promotional media, and more.
Rather than take our word for it, we invite you to come see Q Center for yourself! Client Events are held throughout the year, most recently this last June. Guests joined us under the bright summer skies at our outdoor Pavilion for a brunch buffet and specially crafted drinks, while being immersed in the presentation of a special guest speaker. The afternoon continued with tours of the property’s many amenities and a showcase of our team’s offerings. The next Event in October will put a slightly different spin on things by bringing downtown St. Charles into the spotlight as well. The trendy lineup of restaurants, shopping, and entertainment make St. Charles a hidden gem in its own right, and attendees will have the opportunity to explore all these along with the highly popular Scarecrow Fest!
Q Center also holds monthly Virtual Events, perfect for those with hectic schedules or who can’t afford the time to travel. July’s event took guests on a guided 3D tour through the building’s common areas, guest rooms, and meeting space, and featured a segment from our Dining team on how to make some refreshing summertime recipes. You never know who might drop in next, so keep an eye out for the next tour August 31st!
We hope you’ll take the time to discover this hidden gem for yourself, and see how Q Center can be the cornerstone for all your event needs.
