Downtown Chicago and the hotel are approximately 10 miles northeast of Midway Airport and 20 miles southeast of O’Hare International. The hotel is directly served by airport shuttles and convenient to public transportation. See below for additional information and links.
GO AIRPORT EXPRESS
Shared Ride Shuttles
GO Airport Express provides regular shuttle service to all downtown hotels. Ticket booths are located in the baggage claim area at both airports. A reservation is not required for incoming passengers, but is needed for return trips. Passengers will be dropped off according to their hotel location on the route. Given the number of stops that may be made on any service run, please allow at least one hour for arrival at the hotel. Current rates for one-way or round-trip are $30 or $50 for Midway, and $34 or $60 for O’Hare.
Reservations for Departures: Return reservations should be made in advance (12-24 hours). These can be made through the hotel concierge, front desk staff, or on your own — either online or by calling 888-284-3826. A confirmation number will be provided. Pick-up will be scheduled three hours prior to flight time to allow for other pickups and ensure adequate time for check-in at the airport. Please allow a fifteen-minute window in scheduled pickup time.
Value Van Service
In addition to the above service, GO Airport Express offers van service to and from select downtown locations, including the Merchandise Mart (located just east of the hotel). Rates for this service are $16 one-way for Midway and $18 for O’Hare. Advance reservations are required.
PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION: CHICAGO TRANSIT AUTHORITY (CTA)
CTA trains from both airports provide service to downtown Chicago. Any downtown stop is, at most, a short cab ride away from the hotel. The fare from O’Hare is $5.00. The basic fare (to O’Hare, and to/from Midway) is $2.25 each way. The Clark/Lake stop, located southeast of the hotel (about 5 blocks away), is served by both the Blue Line (from O’Hare) and the Orange Line (from Midway).

The closest stop to the hotel is the Merchandise Mart (station entrance located two blocks east of the hotel). This stop is served by the Brown and Purple lines. When the Mart is open (established business hours, Monday through Saturday; closed on Sunday), passengers can access the hotel using the second floor skywalk that links the Mart to the hotel.
The approximate cost for airport transportation by taxi, one way, is $46 for O’Hare and $38 for Midway. The cost is not a flat rate, so prices will vary due to traffic. Be sure to allow sufficient travel time.
The self-park rate for overnight guests is $35/day and includes in-out privileges until 3:00 PM on the day of checkout. A $20/day rate is available for commuters (no in-out privileges). Parking tickets must be presented at the hotel front desk to confirm these rates. Overnight guests will be able to use room key for in-out access, once parking is assigned to room account.
