Info: For our sixteenth 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 April 6th, 2016!). 

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.

Transportation: PLEASE NOTE: These prices have not been updated for nearly 5 years.  If you plan on using one of these sources, we highly recommend you contact the company of choice for updated pricing information.

You can call one of the cab companies that have listed rates for rides from the airport to the convention.  Please remember these are not guaranteed rates.  You can also call a shuttle service, Airport Express, which has a fixed rate. PLEASE NOTE THAT ALL FARES ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE.
