Transportation to the hotel
Chicago Midway Airport (MDW) is closer to the conference hotel than O'Hare (ORD) is.
To get between either Midway or O'Hare and the hotel, you can take Go Airport Express.
Go Airport Express
Go Airport Express provides door-to-door shared ride services between downtown and suburban hotels, businesses and residences to/from both major airports. Per person fares start at $27 one-way to/from O'Hare and $22 one-way to/from Midway. Fares can be as low as $12 per person based upon group travel.
Go Airport Express has shuttles departing and arriving from the inner lane at the airports every five to 10 minutes. They have customer service counters located in the baggage claim of each airport terminal at both airports. You can either make a reservation via telephone or online at the above Web site.
The CTA Blue Line goes from O'Hare to downtown; then a transfer to a bus or the Red Line gets you to the hotel. Google Maps can generate itineraries, as does the Chicago Transit Web site.
