Next to Yorktown Mall (tons of shopping and restaurants)
Steps away from Target (inside is a Freshii Restaurant and Starbucks)
Conveniently located off of I-88 and I-355
You have options!
Both airports are less than 15 miles from the event. Ohare is much closer.
Uber is a very economical option and transports from both airports.
DO NOT take a regular city cab from the airport. Call a surburban taxi as the taxi’s at the airport will charge you time and a half for trips to the suburbs (yes they are evil).
303 Taxi and American Taxi have flat rates to Lombard. From Ohare Airport: $33. From Midway Airport: $42. I recommend sharing rides to reduce costs. American Taxi can also be ordered online. Use the facebook group to coordinate.
Want to see the city? The hotel has a free shuttle that will take you to the train station. The train schedule is here. It goes right into the heart of the city.
Most major cities have Amtrak trains right into Chicago’s downtown Union Station
