Info: For our 18th show, we’ll be in the West suburbs of Chicago. The Westin is a new hotel, same hotel as last year. It’s located about 20 minutes SW of O’Hare Airport and about a half hour West of Midway Airport. Room rates are $120/night (to get the con rate, you must book by 5:00 p.m. on March 20, 2018!). 

Please mention the con when booking rooms.  Also, since it greatly benefits the convention to have folks stay at the Westin during the show.

Parking is free. The hotel is in the midst of a shopping and restaurant corridor – it’s adjacent to (within walking distance of) Yorktown Mall, next to the AMC Movie Theater and about a mile from Oak Brook Shopping Center. For those with families, it’s also only 7 miles from the Brookfield Zoo, one of the nation’s top zoos. And if you like to gamble, it’s 10 miles from the Aurora River Boat.

The Westin Lombard Yorktown Center is easily accessible from both O’Hare International Airport (16 miles) and Midway Airport (24 miles) as well as from all major expressways.

Airport transport is available by taxi, airport shuttle, or private car service. When taking a taxi from the airport, it is essential that you use a suburban taxi service to avoid paying higher fares. Please confirm that you are hiring a suburban taxi company before entering the vehicle.

Taxis are readily available outside the hotel, and hotel shuttle service is available within a five-mile radius.

If you are traveling by car, please see driving directions, from the airport or any other location.
