Chicago has many options for accommodations! Most hotels are located downtown, about a 35 minute train ride or 20 minute cab ride from the venue.
Below are a few suggestions, but we recommend checking discount sites like Hotels.com or Expedia.com
for the best deal!
Airbnb is another great option that is widely available in most neighborhoods around the city.
Activities in Chicago:
If you find yourself with some extra time the weekend of the wedding, there are a ton of fun things to do around Chicago!
Visiting Lincoln Park Zoo is a fun and free activity, as is doing some sightseeing in the downtown area around Millennium Park and the Bean (Cloud Gate for out-of-towners).
