Please be aware that Chicago hotels are generally expensive, even at the low end. Previous participants have reported that Expedia.com offers good rates for air & hotel travel packages. Also, many of these have rooms available through discounters like hotels.com or priceline.com. Priceline has pretty good maps of the area; the regions you'll want to look in are the southern end of "North Michigan Avenue" or the northern end of "South Michigan Avenue," east of Clark or Dearborn streets.

Lastly, International House (University of Chicago) offers very affordable dormitory-style rooms, though it's not within walking distance - you'll need to drive or take public transportation to get to the Gleacher Center. Reservations must be made by credit card (Visa/MC only). For more information, see http://ihouse.uchicago.edu/residency/residency_short.shtml. For reservations, call 773-753-2270 or send email to I-house-housing@listhost.uchicago.edu.

If you end up at a location that is not within walking distance, you can consult the Transit Authority's website at http://www.rtachicago.com for information on public transportation in the greater Chicago area.

Chicago is a very busy place, with conventions and conferences happening all the time. It is best to arrange your accommodations as early as possible. You can find out about other events in the city that may be going on at the same time by visiting the Chicago Convention & Tourism Bureau's website, http://www.choosechicago.com/smi/calendar.cfm.

H  Hotel sharing

Colleagues sometimes travel together and share a double room to reduce costs. If you are interested in finding a participant to share a room with, please contact sales@ssicentral.com with your preferences (gender, smoking, etc.), with the phrase "Hotel Sharing" in your subject line. Though we cannot guarantee that we'll find you someone to share with, we will do our best to get you in touch with someone else with the same requests.
