i Hotel and Conference Center

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.

Chicago O'Hare Hotels

Should you decide to fly into Chicago on Saturday in advance of the symposium (or stay overnight on Friday to catch a Saturday flight), we suggest the Hilton O'Hare Hotel (at the airport and the location of our charter bus pickup on Friday). The Hilton will be the most convenient (though it may be more expensive), but there are numerous nearby hotels with free airport shuttle service to O'Hare.

Hilton O'Hare Website

Because we have such low usage, we no longer have a room block, but Reservations can be made directly with the hotel at 1-888-551-3843.
