ISMS Hotel Options

We have blocks of rooms on hold at several local hotels for the week of the conference. Additionally a small block of rooms is being held at the Chicago O'Hare Holiday Inn/Rosemont for the Saturday night prior to the meeting and the Friday night after the meeting. Some hotels have specific reservation guidelines so please check the listing below for further information. The room holds will drop off on 5/15, so please book prior to that date to guarantee availability and pricing.

Please always mention the room block so that they will allocate us sufficient rooms in the future

If you are looking for a lower priced hotel option, please contact Birgit for assistance (birgit@isms.illinois.edu).

Illini Union Hotel

Hotel Website

The Illini Union Hotel is by far the most convenient location for attendees. It is a 2 minute walk to Noyes Laboratory. The room rate includes free parking, free internet, and a $5 breakfast voucher to any of the vendors in the Union. The hotel was completely renovated in 2009 with new beds and furnishings. There is no pool or spa (there is a workout room); however, you may ask for free passes to the campus recreation facilities (the nearest is about 1/2 mile away). We were able to block more rooms this year, but we still suggest you book early for best availability.

Hotel Website

This is a very nice new property located on the South edge of campus. It is 1.6 miles from Noyes Laboratory (or about a 30 minute walk). There is complimentary shuttle service to and from campus; however, an appointment is necessary and shuttle space is limited, so availability is not guaranteed. The hotel has a workout room, and a spa where you can book a massage. You may also ask for free passes to the campus recreation facilities (the nearest is about 1/2 mile away). The room rate includes free parking, free internet and a free beverage and breakfast item each morning. There is also a restaurant on-site. We were only able to block a relatively small number of rooms, so book early for best availability.
